Tesco's Cheapside Manager Alan is an Ape! ~ Tesco-Complaint

Friday, November 16, 2007

Tesco's Cheapside Manager Alan is an Ape!

I bought some Bahlsen biscuits marked on special earlier this week and noticed that the till price was £ 1.03 compared to the £ 0.79 on the shelf. I noticed while doing a self-service check out that the price was wrong and a member of staff corrected the price back to what it should be. Today I thought I would see if they had bothered to fix the error and bought the biscuits again but sure enough the price still came up at £ 1.03 in the check-out despite the shelf price still being £ 0.79.
I insisted on seeing the manager (Alan in the Cheapside Branch in London) who acted in a surly manner and just shoved the £ 0.24 owing and my receipt at me. He was upset because he thought I should have just called another checkout supervisor and had them correct the price while I was checking out. When I explained that it wasn’t my job to correct their prices when I have already told them that they are wrong and said I should have been given an apology for this attempt to rip me off, he got surly and told me “there is a Marks and Spencers nearby – go there in future”. When I said I would report him he then started telling me not to come back to the store and was yelling at me as I left the store.
Clearly staff training is a low priority at Tesco as is correcting “mistaken” prices – especially given that the new price-correction only policy now makes it a very lucrative business.

I think some creative liberties have been taken here. So you were perfectly polite and the store manager was rude for no reason?

For some reason I have an urge to stroke my non-existent beard.

Of coarse this happens, tesco wouldn't be where it is today if it didn't penny pinch your wallets, they have been ripping the public off for years,they are good at it! Every little helps in their pockets and goes towards buying off even more land to take over the world.

Don't worry,
Soon you will be paying your council tax and taxes to tesco plc.

Think about this though, just my theory:
I bet the manager is actually a really nice guy, But unfortunatly,He is told to do this by the head office training allmighty and he can't tell anyone.
Whilst being under pressure and probably feeling stressed and guilty from it all he hates his job,and yet another soul like yourself has noticed the rip off they imply and the guy is near a breakdown.

I don't know many people that work in tescos that actually enjoy it.
Anyway, don't go there, don't support any supermarket if you can help it,Support local shops as they are the only hope we have left for our next generation of children,honest think about it.
One day tesco will eat itself in its own success but unfortunate for us leave this country like bosnia.
Remember I said this way in the future,Take care.

Double satndards you have matey!!!

Taken from your partner site:

Committed to an open and honest dialogue with Tesco.

This site is not merely an attack on Tesco but a genuine attempt to improve an issue that is costing the British public millions. Only by drawing public attention to this issue can we expect Tesco to listen and act.

WHAT A LAFF!!!

MOANY OLD B******S get a life and get a cure for your addiction of being a serial tesco SEL checker!!!

Oh i get it you want to work there really!!!

Anonymous said...

What these idiots don't think about is there will be undercharged as well! Infact for each time you get overcharged 10p you'll get undercharged by 10p on another product.

Can any serial Tesco complainer do maths? What does it overall add up to?

Zero!

WTF? I go to Tescos everyday and don't encounter what you say I should find. Tescos only has a 4.7% profit margin, how much cheaper do you think things can actually get then? Do you even understand business?

Oh Your So Blind! Unfortuantly For You,You Have Went Over The Barrier And Became a Tesco Stepford Wife,I Will Say a Prayer For You,You Have Been Brainwashed,Hope Someday You Realise,You Will Someday Once it's Too Late.Think Long and Hard About It!But Don't Wait Too Long!

Blind!

I was undercharged yesterday!

I am not a Tescos wife, I'll shop where it suits me probably around 60% at Asda.

Your the one whos blind, you can't see that all you really want is something to moan about.

lol Yeah! It makes a great politician;-)))

Don't worry, you WILL look back in around 10-15 years and say to yourself,"god that guy was right!"

Watch this space, I only hope you don't have kids,think about the future and security they are going to have, Oh well,Im planning on emigrating soon to get out of this rat race to a much more simple lifestyle.
Good luck knucklehead

What is suppose to happen in 10-15 years time? Tescos still being here.

I'll be fine, don't know about you though!

By the way, I already run my own business, any members of my family will be quiet secure.

Are you right in the head?

Anonymous said...

Tesco's customer service is the worst ever. I wonder where did Tesco find all those low IQ, no manner, non-educated staff. The only thing they can do, if they are not happy about your complaits, is to ask you to leave the store!!!! loads of numpties

Randy Orkin said...

What ever happened to the customer always being right? And what kind of business is it to throw away customers? I hope you still filled out a complaint.

"I wonder where did Tesco find all those low IQ, no manner, non-educated staff"

Your IQ must be low. You can't guess the intelligence of people you don't know, thats an assumption, among others you make. People who assume their own assumptions to be fact don't know if their right or not. So to make such an asumption your own IQ won't be as high as someone who doesn't do this.

No I don't work for Tescos before you make that assumption.

Have you got a fetish for assumptions?

Anonymous said...

No, I don't make them.

assumption said...

Sorry, i've obviously assumed too much.

Anonymous said...

Yes, it's not a good thing for people who try to assess others IQ to do!

assumption said...

I wont make the assumption that its ok to assume things that should not be assumed again. Sorry for the assumptions

Anonymous said...

So why did you make it?

Assumption said...

it was a moment of madness i just assumed that i could get away with making random assumptions when there was no cause to assume any assumptions im sorry for all my assumptions and assuming assumptions that i shouldnt have assumed.

Hi I was band from tesco cheapside for taking a photo of a empty shelf. Check out this link to read my story. http://www.ciao.co.uk/Tesco_Customer_Service__Review_5726798. I've stop going to tesco since. I now shop sainsbury's.

TESCO TREATS THEIR STAFF JUST AS DISGRACEFULLY AS THE CUSTOMERS. THEY ARE RUDE AND ABUSIVE TO US AS WELL. THE DISTRIBUTION CENTRES ARE WORSE THAN THE SHOPS. THEY HAVE TO CURB IT A BIT BECAUSE OF THE CUSTOMERS IN THE STORE BUT IN THE WAREHOUSES THERE ARE NO BOUNDARIES

Anonymous said...

how dare people imply that there is some seceret conspiracy to rip off the the public you people are pathetic get a life if you are overcharged u get double the difference if i was the manager i would have made sure u were barred you nuicance

Anonymous said...

These comments are hilarious! Wouldn't mind but you were just trying to right a consumer wrong. Let the fools on here bitching about you, go on paying Tesco's grossly inflated prices...

And for the record, Tesco are fleecing you! Take Jaffa Cakes for example(don't laugh, I eat these more than anything else!!) the RRP is £1.19 but in my local Tesco they are now £1.49. Another example is the ground coffee I usually buy... Was £1.68 until October, when it increased to £1.87 and is now £2.29. Evil!!!

I now shop at Waitrose, it is seriously cheaper.

Anonymous said...

I currently work for tesco in Yorkshire, and thank you for the comments but we are not all brainless just because we work in a supermarket! Do i hear you owning up when you are undercharged... no that just gets forgotten about... hmm.
Any supermarket has its problems, it is impossible to keep up with the PI! Any idea how many items change price on a daily basis?
The customer may believe they are always right but 9 times out of 10 they are wrong, just mis understood something... so now who has a low IQ! Well.. it said it was 99p so it must be... acutally sir thats thr product next to it! Dont suppose you would always be able to sit and take someone shouting in your face when something really isnt your fault. Clearly customer service desk is there to take complains, however we are not there to be treat like animals. Think about your place of work, if something goes wrong it isnt personally your fault is it! Just because you have had bad experiences at tesco there is no need to start slating staff, we are working to make a living and maybe you need to take a look at the bigger picture
