Whistle Blown at Terry's Head Office ~ Tesco-Complaint

Whistle Blown at Terry's Head Office

I work at Tesco Head Office and came across some very interesting material :

- Commercial staff having 'secret' accounts with suppliers whereby the Tesco buyers overpay in the good times with the understanding that they can call on the deposit to artificially show improved management of margins when demanded by senior management, up to £25m would be 'squirrelled' away in this manner at any one time. On 2 occasions that I was aware of these secret accounts were used to commit fraud;

- land buyers having to buy x sqft of land to achieve objectives and in turn receive lucrative bonuses, regardless of whether there was any real chance of building a store on the land;

- staff particularly in the property department receiving excessive hospitality, such as receiving multiple fully paid skiing holidays a year;

- mislead staff about the planned offshoring of jobs to India, Tesco senior management knew from the start they intended to lose 2,800 jobs in the Head Office and move them to India. Even when the headcount in India made it above 1,000 they still managed to keep news of this out of the press - other companies were hammered in the press for losing far less UK staff to India;

- a case of bullying and poor management in a store lead to an employee with mental health issues committing suicide, the initial investigation was a cover up;

...more to come

IVE HAD ENOUGH OF TESCO SCUM TRYING TO RULE THE WORLD THE ONLY THING TESCO IS GOOD FOR IS THE LARGE AMOUNT OF TAX IT HAS TO PAY THE UK WHICH EASES THE STRAIN ON US TAXPAYERS FROM THE BURDEN OF DOLE SCUM

'Slush funds' are a common business practice.

Na, Don't worry, soon tesco doomsday is coming,the milk is already starting to go sour and they know it.
All these campaigns about stopping planning for new ugly sheds is one thing abut at the end of the day,tesco has a weak spot and thats the very thing that also fuels them."people" sooner or later tesco will devour itself in its own success,ok it will destroy all the once loved smaller businesses, but i am confident that people "will wake up" might not be in my generation but it will happen.
proof or no proof, we all know its happening and it's just a matter of time before "people" tescos lifeline realise its all got to stop.
I never shop with supermarkets of any description,they are roots of evil and my children will certainly NOT work for these monsters,because that what supermarkets are.

Well done. What you are doing here is *IMO* admirable & brave. And they are expensive! £27 yesterday compared to £8 at Morrisons a fortnight ago for twice as much of the same stuff! If only all the local shops hadn't shut down I wouldn't have to go at all... Hmm

Having worked out of their Harlow distribution depot for 2 years I have seen things at their filthy shops that would make people cringe.There was also some sort of scam going on at the Black Notley development about 10 years ago.It was quickly hushed up.Tesco are rancid vermin.

I have no time for tesco head office. they are corrupt and treat suppliers like scum. Two members of their staff were knowingly envolved in bringing a business to its knees. Along with two corrupt directors. They took their payment in turkish sex!!!!!!!!!!!!! You know who you are.
