Depending on the management you're under, it can typically be a stressfree and enjoyable day at work. Your team helps keep you on your feet, friendly and enthusiastic people to work with which helps you within your job.

Customer assistant (Former Employee) –  London26 March 2018
Day at Tesco was always a new experience as you do not know what task or challenge you are facing today. Meeting new customers help to make your communications skills and your professional ability much stronger. As a customer assistant a combination of the following tasks are undergo: Answering customer enquirers or passing them on to the appropriate department. Giving information and helping to solve customer problems. Selling products and taking orders. During a work day you experience issues that may make your word day very hard for example time keeping in which you may have a certain time ti complete a task but over time it helps you to become more organised in your and as an individual completing tasks on time.
Pros
Holidays
Cons
Very Busy

Customer Delivery Assistant (Current Employee) –  London, Greater London25 March 2018
As you clock in for your shift and approach the team leaders desk, your issued with a trip and reach device. you would then carry out your deliveries in order as they appear on your reach device. Management is fair and the overall workplace culture is good. Hardest part of the job is delivering to customers who live in high rise flats with no lifts. Most enjoyable part of the job is the freedom of being left to get on with it with little intervention.
Cons
can be very tiering

Decent pay but you deserve it
Customer Serive (Former Employee) –  London12 March 2018
Tesco is a lovely place to work to fit around certain life styles, within reason...whatever that may be. However, be prepared for working in a 'playground'. Many promises of further job prospects only to have it dangled like a carrot while being taken advantage of... Managers making the rules up as they go - suggest you join the union (you will need them). Overall as I stated in the beginning it lined my pockets while studying and it gave me a new found respect for retail workers one word: CHRISTMAS, but that is as far as it goes on my recommendation.
Pros
10% discount all year occasionally 20% for a few days
Cons
Poor management
