Very nice place to work
Admin Assistant / Customer Assistant (Current Employee), Worcester, ENGSeptember 8, 2014
Pros: we are given access to some drinks like tea and juice to use during breaks
Cons: no seats allowed behind the checkouts, which means we have to stand during the whole shift.
I enjoy working at Tesco. The Managers are very helpful at all times. I love being with people so this place gives me the opportunities to talk and help old and young and make friends at the same time. The gratitude I get from helping the customers is worth the job I am doing. I love being at the checkouts where I can accomplish all this.

The hardest – more... part of the job for me is when I need to take time off for taking my children to important places and can't find anyone to take my shift. Normally if this occurs I have to take a day off without pay and the Management gives the day out as an overtime to whoever wants it. Also during the School holidays it's difficult to get enough time with my children. For example, when the kids are off for 6 weeks it gets harder as I can't get all that time and I can't afford baby sitters. Most of the time I only get a few days where we can't really afford to do anything.
Also as my family is not near here, if I want to book a whole month holiday to go where they are I have to officially apply and book my holidays a year before when I don't even know the dates or what transport I will be able to afford in a year's time. This being the reason why I am looking to work at Schools where I can have days off when my kids are off.
Another difficult part is that I need more hours but I can't seem to be able to get more permanent hours to work in order to get more money so I can give more help to my family. – less

good work place
Customer Service Assistant (Current Employee), cumbernauldSeptember 7, 2014
Pros: good company benifits.
Cons: no thanks for doing your best
A typical day in Tesco would involve serving customers, helping and solving problems, be available to help at all times or find the proper help. good and enjoyable place to work, great people to work with at all ages. hardest part of the job would be dealing with the few difficult customers but the most enjoyable part would be working with great people – more... and talking to and hearing loads of different stories because everybody has one to tell :) – less

reasonable
Team Leader/ Sales Assistant (Current Employee), Pitsea, ENGSeptember 6, 2014
Pros: good money, employee benefits
Cons: ridiculous hours, not enough staff in the sections
colleagues are helpful and friendly, others keep to themselves. some managers are helpful and others are useless.

a typical day of work is too much to do and not enough hours or staff to complete everything,

hardest part of the job is turning up and the most enjoyable is leaving at the end of the day

Tesco
Personal Shopper (Current Employee), Sandhurst, ENGSeptember 5, 2014
Pros: the customers are great, pay is good, collegues are nice.
Cons: managers expect everything from you with no questions asked.
This job has me used to early morning starts. The management doesn't really care what the worker wants. They expect you to work whenever they say and if you say no once then they complain about you! It is a nice job to do and the pay is good but it is not worth it when the management treat you how they do. When you are out in the super market it is – more... nice to just have time to talk to customers and the other colleagues. – less

Great experiences
Supervisor/Stock Control/Sales/Customer Service (Former Employee), KentSeptember 5, 2014
My time with Tesco was fantastic. I left them only to go to Uni and it was a big mistake. My colleagues who stayed working are now earning far above my potential and with no debts. This is a fun and nourishing environment to work in. I was supported no end with my other commitments at the time and there are so many opportunities to develop your experience – more... in different fields. The only problem is not many people leave so although they give you all the coaching and training to do a job you desire sometimes you have to wait a while for a position to become vacant. – less

Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee), ENGSeptember 2, 2014
I enjoyed my time working at Tesco and providing the right standard of customer service which the company specializes in. I learned how to deal with situations spontaneously when it was necessary, for example when it got very busy, especially around Christmas, I had to adapt a quicker, more efficient and more open style of working. The management was – more... very good and displayed a caring environment for both the employees and customers. – less

Merchandising Team Leader (Former Employee), Hyde, ENGSeptember 2, 2014
Pros: nice friendly place to work.
Cons: working nights 10pm to 7am
I enjoyed working at Tesco, my shifts started by going on workplan and organising the job roles for my colleges to complete that night. I learnt everything i could as a customer assistant and team leader. As with every supermarket job I was often asked to help out in all departments when my work load was complete. All staff on all levels were lovely – more... and hard working. – less
