Various positions (Former Employee), Exmouth, ENGJuly 13, 2014
Pros: friendly co-workers, very sociable
Cons: repetitive, not very stimulating
For the time I worked for Tesco, it was a very social job, constant interaction with customers and very easy to get on with the other workers.
I only worked there for the period I was in education and they were very flexible with my needs as a student, giving me overtime and time off when needed.

Team Leader (Former Employee), Leighton BuzzardJuly 12, 2014
Pros: good rate of pay, left to get on with your job, discount and holidays
Cons: not enough hours !
I would say there is never a typical day at work , as the days can throw up many challenging jobs throughout the day .
I have learned to take each day as it comes as no two days are the same .
I prepared the weekly rotas ( a month in advance ) for my Manager , and dealt with most of the daily and weekly paperwork .
I had a team of 14 , with three departments – more... , customer service desk , cash office and trollies , ( also petrol filling station , when team leader on holiday ) .
I loved meeting and greeting customers and thrive on dealing with challenges .
The hardest part of the day is not having enough hours !! – less

A convienient and fun part time job
General Assistant (Current Employee), HarlowJuly 10, 2014
Pros: discount
Cons: no overtime
A typical day at work will be to run the self service tills and to provide customers with the help they need.
I have learned to communicate with customers a lot better than before i had this job.
The management has declined in quality over the past 3 years. When i first joined the company the management was excellent, however has become below stamdards – more... of recent times.
My colleagues are brilliant at work. A lot of nice people and hard working people , they are brilliant.
Running self service in peak hours is the hardest part of the day. Having to control 10 self service tills on your own is hard work however rewarding once the ques have gone down.
I like making the customers happy. Helping people that require help is my most favourite thing whilst at work. – less

All ways on the move
Team Leader (Current Employee), folkestoneJuly 9, 2014
Cons: dont get entittled break, shift pattern is all over the place, and too many tasks to do in little time.
on all shifts we work fresh, produce, bread and milk first thing, then we go straight onto working our grocery back stock or delivery. i also have routines in between like, reductions (finding products for todays date to reduced), potentials (finding tomorrows date to reduce), gap scan ( scanning every gap on the shop floor to send new stock in), and – more... till checks (to see if all tills balance from staff using the tills). during my shift i am always vigilant around the customers as we have quite a few theft incidents. – less

Pros: cheap food in cantene
Cons: they are not considerate when scheduling you hours.
To begin with tesco was an okay company to work for but after a while when you get settled in they will make you work hours that are not in your availability and then get angry at you for not being able to work these days.
