Customer Assistant/Cashier (Former Employee), Manchester, ENGNovember 14, 2014
Pros: everything progression wages bonus's staff management
Cons: you can get to comfy when there might be a better option for a career
I have to say Tesco was the only job that really grounded me, i thoroughly enjoyed my 3 years there and i would probably go back in the future, the management became friends we all had a great working relationship and there was always ways to progress in the company if you put the hours in and effort to learn the routines etc, the hardest part for me – more... was younger team leaders than myself there was sometimes a conflict in personalities but only because i have a older mentality a and i sometimes found them to be quite immature and irresponsible, i loved my clients i had repeat customers who shopped there just to come speak to me for their day i helped customers on a personal level inside and outside of work if they needed anyone in their life to help them through anything they could come to me for help and i would do to my best ability – less

Pros: nice and friendly people
My job was to stack the shelves in the store and to organise the stock, stack the
Cages in the warehouse with products to display in the store, my other duties were to get rid
of all plastic and cardboard in the store and in the ware house and put those into the separate
compactors and to help the customers if they were looking for a certain product – more... and if they
had any queries. – less

A Great and safe place to work with a competitive salary and benefits.
Warehouse Team Manager (Current Employee), Southampton, ENGNovember 12, 2014
Pros: great salary and benefits for those with long service
Cons: different contracts and bonuses for staff doing the same job.
A typical day involves the scanning and assembling of product so that we can deliver it to our stores.

It can be a very fast paced and pressurized environment.I very much enjoy working with the great people at my Depot who enable me to have fun in the work place whilst delivering the KPI's and targets that are key for our customers shopping trip.

The – more... hardest part of the Job is managing the different contracts and bonuses for colleagues doing exactly the same job. (Dependent on service). New contracts have to work harder and have less breaks.
Agency can earn a productivity bonus however Company staff can not. – less

Personal Shopper (Former Employee), NewportNovember 12, 2014
A typical day at work for me was to start my shift at 6am and i was given a Scanner and this told me what shopping i had to pick for the day by scanning a container.

I learned alot at tesco as it was a fast pased job in order to get customers orders picked on time and without the frozen foods defrosting.

Fantastic employment!
General Assistant (Groceries) (Former Employee), LeighNovember 11, 2014
Pros: seasoned parties (xmas, halloween)
Cons: management could do with more training in leadership.
Tesco is a good place to work, if you get the right manager, sadly our section did not which was grocery day shift. other than that the hours are flexible, you interact with many different people and it is not a stressful job.

Store Technician - Extras (Current Employee), Welwyn Garden City, ENGNovember 10, 2014
Cons: synergie between retail and maintenance is very hard
The job is varied, from joinery to plumbing to dealing with store management on a daily basis. The company is continually evolving and as a result can often appear to be bumbling from one change to another. Recently the structure has changed again - the 4th time in 4 years. However with every change it seems to start well and get better.

Retail Assistant (Former Employee), Peterborough, ENGNovember 7, 2014
Fun and friendly place to work. Staff were very friendly and always willing to help if a problem was to arise. Everyday was different, new faces, new products, new targets to meet. Meeting new customers and learning new things about the products made the job pleasureable. Made some good friends too from from my time there.

Decent place of work
Customer Assistant (Former Employee), BristolNovember 6, 2014
The job is a great place to meet new people, who eventually become friends, especially if you live locally.
Most days are spent carrying out a mixture of tasks; on the tills, receiving deliveries and stock shelves. No surprises or different tasks, but then again it is Tesco.
The shifts are not too bad and the management are generally fine with shift – more... changes if you give them enough time to find someone to cover you. That being said, though, some of the bosses could not care less about the staff; staying in their office, ignoring you and yelling at you for not working even if you're trying to helping a customer.
The pay is also reasonable, around £6.70ph, for a part-time job.
The real worst is that for every four hours, you only receive 15 minutes break, unpaid, so it's up to you whether to skip a meal, or lose money. – less
