Customer Assistant (Current Employee), Express – February 25, 2014
Pros: 10% off
Cons: long hours standing up all day, customers service
Well, we all know what Tesco is like, most of us have shopped there. It's not a fantastic job, not a terrible job. The pay is good for what the job is, and the Sunday premiums are amazing for picking up some spare overtime.
The problems that I have had working for Tesco are mostly situational. Customers, as different and individual people will treat – more... you differently. However, the ratio of people treating you like you are not even a human being with rights will sometimes over scale that of those who know you are just a person trying to get by.
The management differs from person to person, store to store. I have met good and bad managers and it is most likely the same with every company.
Lets just say a decent job, decent pay for said job, if you do your job well and just have a good work ethic and a strong will it's going to be a secure job. If you shop there you get a discount, along with the clubcard benefits. There is a pretty good phone package as a staff member as well.
It's a standard supermarket retail job. It's going to have it's problems much like Sainsburys or Waitrose, but atm the payroll is higher. – less
Customer Assistant, Checkouts (Former Employee), Trowbridge, ENG – February 25, 2014
Pros: easy advancement
Cons: seem to be a bit "soul destroying"
Supermarkets aren't my sort of thing. There's little variety in the work you do and there tends to be little communication between workers and managers. If you're into doing the same task over and over again and have little communication with your colleagues then you may have more enjoyment out of it.

The hardest yet most enjoyable part of the job is the variety of work.

I have learnt to be flexible, creative yet firm when managing a project. At the same time, the variety is interesting and challenges me. – less
