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 – more... nothing then openly tell you that several times to your face... – less

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.

Technical Writer (Former Employee), Calgary, ABMarch 27, 2013

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.

Rich Content Induction (RCI) (Current Employee), NEW YORK , NYDecember 23, 2014
A key business challenge for Tesco is inducting products onto the website in a timely and accurate manner.
Part of the underlying issue with the product induction process is its complicated nature and many touch points. Business teams are expected to operate in many systems to induct products and resolve issues.
For the purpose of the Pilot, Tesco had – more... come up with a plan for implementing the Rich Content Induction Process in IBM BPM V8.0.1. Instead of using coaches provided by BPM, we have come up with out of the box/Custom UI using nUI technology. The integration of nUI and BPM was through REST API’s. The RCI flow consists of many stages like Buyer Initiating the RCI process, Supplier providing necessary product date along with Sample/Image, MPC (Media Publishing Center) and CP (Content Provider) enriching the data for the product to be made available on Tesco Website on planned Launch Date. – less
