very productive workplace and interactive, good relationships built with co-workers
Warehouse/Customer Assistant (Former Employee) – Elmers end – 21 June 2018
Great enviroment, I felt catered for but at the same time well worked, I built strong connections with my co-workers so it made it easy to work hard and smoothly, whilst knowing htere werent any week links within the workplace.
very positive and active management free lunches and decent hours.
Picker/Packer (Current Employee) – Lichfield, Staffordshire – 21 June 2018
I started work in tesco before one and a half month . I like the warehouse , the job is a little hard but the payment is good , but from this work i have pain in the back everyday when i finish i think it is not for me .
Customer Assistant (Current Employee) – Leeds, West Yorkshire – 21 June 2018
I've held a job at Tesco since college and worked through university too. I've never had a problem with the company as the wage is good and the option for overtime is open for me. Progression within the company has also been available to me.
A typical day for me is replenishing shelves, pulling in deliveries, assisting customers and cleaning.
I've made many friends within the company, everyone looks out for each other and I always have a good laugh going to work.
For what you do pay is good but rude and hypocritical
Customer Assistant (Former Employee) – Whitstable – 21 June 2018
I worked at the Whitstable Store for quite a while, maybe it was just certain departments that had staff who thought they where better than everyone else but as a younger worker a lot is blamed on you and there is a lot of rules that were set for some but not others. The pay itself for what you did is good but I did not think it was worth the harrassement and staff talking behind your back to deal with the hassle.
I worked with a lot of other staff my age and if we spoke a manager would complain about it even if it's work related or whilst you work.
Admin Ca & Step-up Manager (Former Employee) – Totton, Hampshire – 20 June 2018
good college job, could work a self study routine out around me set shifts. With lots of opportunity to pick up shifts. Training system had ability to go beyond the required and develop yourself more if you desired, without pressure if you opted not too. Appreciation and ability to progress if you demonstrate the desire to improve
Customer Service Advisor (Current Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 20 June 2018
I just like to say that Tesco's is a very good place to work and the people you work with are amazing and you get along with all the managers but there are a few issues like communication is pretty poor but other than that it's a really good place to work and a lot of fun and you get to meet amazing people and make friends.
Business Support Executive - Customer Service (Former Employee) – Dundee City – 19 June 2018
Generally a good employer to work for however, at times guilty of not giving staff the true recognition they desire or deserve for the work they do on a regular basis. Management can be good depending on your role and position within the company.
Good environment to work in in the Contact Centre but again this may differ to actually working in one of the supermarkets.
Good base for employment and steady income but often due to the structure of the company difficult to move on up the business ladder.
Customer Assistant (Current Employee) – Whitchurch – 19 June 2018
Very goal driven place to work. Constantly pushed to work harder and faster in a fairly fast paced invironment. Must be capable of working in a team and communicating with other members of staff. Certain branches will not supply larger hour contracts than 16 hours so is ideal for school leavers or college students but not so good for someone in need of full time hours.
Customer Assistant (Current Employee) – Liverpool – 19 June 2018
My overall experience while working within Tesco has been a bit of a roller coaster, however, it has taught me a lot about the world and working in a busy environment. The majority of the staff that I worked with where very friendly, if I needed help they would help me. The thing I enjoyed the most is the relationships and bonds that you make I have met some incredible people while working there and made some friends for life. One of the hardest things I experienced while working there was an incident involving an older male colleague that seemed to continue even after management got involved.
Staff discount, good support, helpful staff, good customers.
senior managers bully people into getting results, departments are cliquey, older staff members are lazy and hostile to those who challenge them, if the face fits you get treated well, if it doesnt, even if youre a harder worker you get lumped with the tasks nobody wants to do. job has flexible working patterns, great for students. has some cool benefits, like staff discount, money off restaurants and cinema. decent pay for what the job is
Customer Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – dot.com Aylesford, Kent – 19 June 2018
Supposed to be Delivery Driver that equals a big NO.
Loading vans not good (poor training on this) you need to be fit as a weight lifter at times because you can load up-to twenty vans which could weigh up to 800Kg per van.
There is a preferential pecking order even if you arrive before any one else. Organised chaos at times. Wage is on the poor side. Night driving is awful trying to find houses with a name on their house from 30 meters away. Rubbish Sat-Nav come phone.
Want a social life - forget that.
Subsidised canteen, discount on food (after a period of service)
