Sold out to the Americans and then sold off potential future money making key assets.... Sad!
Technician (Former Employee), Calgary, ABMay 15, 2014
Pros: given creative freedom to achieve the required work result.
Cons: peers trying to take over your projects because of their lack of capabilities and competence
I was given the creative freedom to achieve what was required while working Top Drives, Casing Running and Casing Drilling Downhole Tools. Travelling abroad with Tesco was great and well organized. The sad part is having peers who their only mission is to get a bonus at the end of the year at all costs. When you are the one working for it and they do nothing then openly tell you that several times to your face...

Overall good company, hard to keep managment, and office staff, everyone always changing position, quitting or getting fired.
Tonghand (Former Employee), Red Deer, ABApril 12, 2014
Lackinging certain characteristics as a company, to big of a corporation attitude for what should be looked after as a small bussiness attitude, wheres as the employees are treatded more important, after all it really is the hands that make a Tong company.

Productive, learned new challenges
Technical Writer (Former Employee), Calgary, ABMarch 27, 2013
Cons: long hours
At Tesco for 6 years, working for 4 years in Accounts Payable and then was given an opportunity to move to another position as a Technical Writer. I learned to use Framemaker, Illustrator, Photoshop, as well as learning Sharepoint 2010, on my own.
The hardest part of my job as a Technical Writer was the self learning I had to do, however I enjoyed that at the same time because I love to learn and research, given the time.
I was the volunteer coordinator for Meals on Wheels with Tesco, handling the scheduling and paperwork for Tesco's corporate responsibility of volunteering.

Enjoys building a relationship in a friendly and professional manner
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee), Barnet, ENGJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: enjoys using the discount club-card for employees
Cons: long hours and double shifts
Working in a fast paced environment and meeting people from divers background, from different ethnic group, all working together to achieve same results,whether in tills or clothes department, every one is friendly and professional.

To work successfully as part of a team and knowing how to communicate effectively within different ethnic groups. sharing ideas and working together as a team.

The line - managers where very encouraging in helping with questions with products or on line quires, the also commend you for suggestions in making the team more productive

I made a lot of long time friends with my co-workers ,some have worked for years there and are happy to help you with there discount card until yours come after the induction or 10 days form commencing

The hardest part of the job was the long shift which comes back to back of each other ; like working from 7 am in between breaks to 10 pm at night , you do get used to it.

Having a very pro-active day at work completing the shifts successful, jumping on the bus getting home and putting my feet up. that is the most enjoyable part of the job

Excellent place to work, Fun
Dispatcher (Former Employee), Fenny Lock, Bletchley, Milton KeynesJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: start early finish early, good team to work with
Cons: long hrs when required
Start of the day you would make sure Engineers would have jobs on their pda's, triage tickets that would come in from stores, Area Managers to see if the IST (in store technician) would be able to resolve instead of sending an engineer to store.

Create daily reports for Management purposes (how many outstanding jobs on system, how long tickets have been on system, etc).

Answer calls from Engineers, Stores, IST's, Area Managers, Directors.

Call clear tickets that are no longer needed.

Deal with parts issues, van stock for engineers.

Liasing with other dispatchers to make sure engineers are not criss crossing each other (utilize engineers, cost saving on fuel, no 2 men going to store at the same time)

Liasing with contractors where need be.
