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.
The hardest part of my job as a Technical Writer was the self learning I had to do, however I enjoyed that – more... 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. – less

Busy typical day at work. Learnt about manufacturing and Great Plains software. Good management and fun place with co-workers.

Grinds you down
Customer Assistant (Current Employee), Bristol, ENGAugust 29, 2014
Pros: great co-workers
Cons: don't get paid for breaks, low contracted hours
Tesco is a great place to work if you're either a student or a working mum. If you aren't any of these, good luck finding enough hours to get by. They mostly operate on employing lots of staff with stupid hours such as Tuesday 13:00-16:00, Friday 18:00-22:00. This isn't helpful to anyone who wants to actually get on in their working life without the – more... support of an earning partner. Getting into management is also a joke, unless you have the 'right face' for the job nobody will help you progress and before you know it you're five years down the line and haven't moved an inch since day one. – less

Cashier (Former Employee), Bangor, NIRAugust 28, 2014
Pros: meeting people
Working as a cashier withing Tesco allowed me to majorly improve my customer service skills as quite often you ended up chatting to customers whilst serving them at the till. It definitely brightens up your day. Although responsibilities were fairly basic, keeping pace during busy periods certainly keeps you fit!

Having said that, if it is a quiet – more... period, time can start to drag but you'll grow to appreciate the odd mini-break here and there. Also if you're on a long shift, bring a cushion for you bum! – less
