Advantages Easy to learn jobs that are simple to get!
Disadvantages Can be stressful during weekends and busy shopping times!
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 have is being clumsy I have burnt and cut my self more often then I would like. I am leaving in october to find more challenging work.~~~~BENIFITS~~~~
Tescos pays every four weeks. First time I got a paycheck after money was paid into my bank account. The pay slips are not easily understood... however I just tend to trust them anyways. Any overtime I do shows up seprately from my contracted hours and sunday pay for me is time and a half but from what I understand sunday pay is now just time for new people. Overtime though is still time and a half and those who work at night I believe get time and a half as well.
Staff restuarant makes fairly decent food and you can get a full breakie for 65 p and lunch for 1.31. Lunch today was lasangne and veg and a desert plus there were other choices but this is an example. The vending machines are horrible they eat money off your card occasionally or for me all the time when their doors get stuck. Because I complain and others don't I have recently been told not to use them with out supervision anymore. Trust me it burns me to be considered a liar. However I leave soon so I don't care and will pack my lunch from now on. Also our staff restaurant has a pool table and a dart board Pretty cool hey!
~~~~CLOCK IN AND CARDINAL CARD~~~~
This is how you clock in when you get to work. You are given 3 mins leeway either side to clock in! Any more then this shows up as an error in the system. This card also has your picture on it... and can have money put on it so you can purchase your lunch and break time food. The clock in and cardinal card used to be seperate cards however now they are one in the same.
