“Working for Tesco”

published 09/06/2006

Good pay, great benefits package

Crap uniform, crap managers

Ok, first of all, I'd just like to mention, this is a looooooooooooong review, so if you're not actually interested in reading about Tesco as an employer, then I'd suggest you don't bother as it will take some patience to get through! When I left school at the age of 18, and having decided I...

too many managers, bad equipment

I decided to take a gap year after my A levels and go travelling for a couple of months. To do this I needed a better paid job and more hours than what I had. I applied at my local Tescos knowing that it was well paid and easy work (as many of my friends worked there during 6th form). The...

“TESCO”

published 12/11/2007

Friendlly people, easy job

pay,staff benefits

Having worked for Tesco at some point I have an employee and also a customer's perspective. I was employed when I was 16; it started off as part time work because I was at college. This suited me because my hours were convenient, the pay was good - above the minimum wage, overtime was available...

I applied for a part-time job at Tesco - a large 24 hour store in Paulton, Bristol in June. Initially I was sent a letter through the post saying they had no places, but would get in touch if there were. A few weeks afterwards, I was invited to an interview, which I attended. This involved...

Staff Discount and Benefits

Career Progression and Pay

I was 15 when I left school obtaining good qualifications and heading off to college to do Travel and Tourism. The store was sort of newish to the area and was taking on staff at the same time as I left school. The store was one of the superstores within its portfolio and had the old uniform with...

I have worked at Tesco for the past two and a half years since I left school in order to fund my uni life. I have continued to stick with the company because it suits my student lifestyle. Reasons for this are as follows... *~Pay~* In comparison to other part-time jobs the pay is very good. As a...

“Dalhousie Express”

published 07/06/2007

It payed money

Where do I start?

I left Tesco earlier this year, and I have never been happier not working for a company. The treatment from managers in Tesco was abysmal, and the treatment from custumors was sometimes worse. There was absolutly no flexibility, and the head manager was a joke. It was supposed to help me get...

Open long hours

Bad customer service...the worst online shopping

Why do they show so little regard for their customer? Up until last week, I was a regular on-line shopper, spending up to £6000 a year. Sure, I had always had problems with them....40% of deliveries in the first 6 months were cancelled by them because 'the van has broken down'. Always the same...

I have been working in a tescos cafe for about 5 months. I Applied for the Job back in March and started the job in april. I have found working in the cafe pretty simple. It is unnerving at first but anyone who is interested in this type of job should find it quick to learn. Biggest problem I...

“Ideal for students”

published 03/04/2006

Good pay, Good holidays

Sometimes hard work, some managers

While I was a student, I worked part time in my local Tescos. Getting a job with Tescos isn't easy! The application form is quite difficult to fill out, and to this day remains one of my worst! You then have to go through your interview, then some tests on the shop floor to see if you're suitable...

Ignore Work related Health issues, Change of hours...

This is my experience of Tesco: No Rota Basis for staff who get the worst shifts & other staff refuse to swap, especially in some departments. It is expected that you shall change your hours to suit Tesco regardless of commitments or how you will get home. Flexability is fine by me....if only...
