Tesco Supermarkets P.L.C. had over 3,400 UK stores in 2020.
Very good due to the nice store layout, fawning staff, sycophanting customer care culture and reliable home delivery service.
Stressful, especially fawning to abusive, bullying, smelly, sexist, fat, racist and\or over demanding customers. A 7 hour shift on trollies and a 10 hour shift on tills is hell! Many staff members are nice and friendly, but stressed out by work.
Until recently cost was driven down, but this has changed.
Tesco was found in 2014 to be hoarding land that could build 15,000 homes in order to stop rivals from using it.
Buying manufactured stock on mass in large amounts and in contracts.
Unfair practices to rivals
Office of Fair Trading said that the 4 leading brands were not quashing cooperation or each other unfairly during 2007 in the then £125bn grocery market sector.
It was £6.57 in 2007 and £8.42 2018, and thus was one of the lowest in the trade during the late 2010s, until the 2019 pay rise took it to the average of £9.30.
Generally they are rather steep and get worse with time. A 35 hour week is normal, but it could go up to 55.
Expect it to be canceled with no reason at short notice.
They are about average.
Not the most rewarding of cards until recently.
The latest one is a cheep and has unisex top. The tops have 8 standard sizes: XXS, XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL and XXXL.
In 2015 There were all the sizes from 8 to 36, going up every 2 clothing sizes after 2015.
A long while back it was, for women: Pixie, Dainty, Petite, Smallest, Smaller, Small, Demure, Modest, Regular, Medium, Large, Larger, Larger+, Largest, Big, Huge, Bold, Massive, Enormous and Grand.
Women's 'named' sizes were about these sizes:
- Pixie (3-4)
- Dainty (4-5)
- Petite (5-6)
- Smallest\XXS (6-8)
- Smaller (8-10)
- Small\XS (10-12)
- Demure (11-13)
- Modest (12-14)
- S (14-16)
- Regular (16-18)
- Medium\M (18-20)
- Large\L (20-22)
- Larger\XL (22-24)
- Larger+\XXL (24-26)
- Largest/XXXL (26-28)
- Big (27-29)
- Huge (28-30)
- Bold (30-32)
- Massive (31-33)
- Enormous (32-34)
- Grand (36-38)
The largest size, Enormous, and the third smallest, Petite, were later available on request in some stores, but they are were discontinued long ago.
Due to there being a lot of fat old staff or skinny young staff, the middling 4 sizes are hard to find, the 14-16 and 16-18 being the rarest to find.
Lurid pink, vomit green, canary yellow, fire engine red and electric blue are banned in most stores.
They were too low in the 1990s and 2000s.
