Working for Tesco Diamond review

AdvantagesGood pay, great benefits package

DisadvantagesCrap uniform, crap managers

"...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 couldn't be bothered with university, I suddenly had to face the big bad world and go and find myself a job. I wasn't really fussy about what job I did - I've never been ambitious, and simply wanted a job where I could go to work, do my job, come home ..." Read review

Nice little earner

Advantages good pay, easy work, great benefits, hours to suit you

Disadvantages too many managers, bad equipment

"...of you wage put into tesco shares which can be accessed anytime but are tax free after 5 years. After a year you receive free shares to a percentage of your wage, these are held for you for 5 years and then you can claim them tax free! There are many other benefits but I have no use for them as I will be leaving soon, the three above are considered the best benefits tesco's offers. Equipment For a multi-billion £ business I have found that tescos ..." Read review

It was OK, I suppose.

AdvantagesBest pay I've had, easy job, overtime opportunities.

DisadvantagesGeneral inflexibility, restricting, tedious job, tight-fistedness.

"...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 spending half an hour doing the job I was being interviewed for (you didn't generally have a choice of what you did - I wanted to go on checkouts and was dismayed to find ..."

Easy oppurtunities but not a long term prospect

AdvantagesStaff Discount and Benefits

DisadvantagesCareer Progression and Pay

"...went on it became clear Tesco was changing, it started cutting overtime to allow for budgets and management were in and out from various levels after short periods. New entry managers were random and this lead to a backlash from staff who were easger for promotion and working towards a career. Various departments work at different pay rates and it became apparent who was earning certain rates and who were not. After making a beeline for the customer ..." Read review
