It's not really a good place to work. There is no life-work balance, and you don't have time to breathe. As a student, I was promised flexible hours, but as it turns out, the flexibility only works in favor of the company. And of the management, as the managers do get time off whenever they need it. In order to be able to actually attend lectures and go to my exams I had to change my job.
Overtime is forced on you. You never get asked if you want it or not. You get dragged from one department to another, and you're expected to be in five places at a time, completing five different tasks at the same time. After working 7-8 or 9 days in a row, you are told you're not allowed to be tired. You can't be late, but you have to stay until you finish the job, even if you're not paid.
The colleagues are nice, kind people. The management doesn't care about the staff. They will not help, no matter how busy or understaffed the store is.
My advice: don't work at Tesco's. At least if you also want to have a life. If work is all you want, from 9 hours up, 7 days per week, than it might just be the place for you.
Nice, kind colleagues
