Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) – Evesham – 12 March 2018
The training was very good. Customers services was very busy. The management were helpful so were most of the staff. The hours I was given did not fit around my home life so I found it difficult juggle everything. I did enjoy helping the customers.

Job only good for students who don't see themselves there very long or people who only need part-time hours. No good if you have a mortgage or rent to pay. Learned most posts, workplace culture is to discipline staff as much as possible. The hardest part of the job is not hitting someone and the most enjoyable part is clocking out.

Management for the most part is lead from the front. It is a company where you get what you give in regards to flexibility. In times of need they have allowed extra time off and been very flexible with working hours.

Worked at tesco for 6 years can't really complain to be honest decent hours had the opportunity to advance most management were nice but you would get the odd hitler. Had mental health issues whilst working for tesco had to have time off the management was very helpful with this

I would not recommend working for Tesco if you are a student or have other personal commitments of importance. The job does not leave a lot of room for a personal life and you will be continually pushed into accepting more hours than you agreed to.

Tesco was a great company to work for. I just wish I was on a different department and my staff didn’t treat me badly. I would have had a different experience for my first ever job and enjoyed it. My second manager was a big problem as well, not enough life skills and management to do what he was doing, like most of the young managers in there. Would definitely suggest it to a friend!

I have literally just left my customer assistant role in a busy city centre express store. First of all i will say you will meet some wonderful customers and colleagues and overall most of the people you encounter will be pleasant. The drawbacks for me were first of all the store i was in (and potentially others) was very hirearchy based. Basically if the right shift leaders and management liked you, you were alright but if not you can be prepared for a bit of bad treatment. I also found in my store the managers did not help very much and only seemed to get involved in things when it suited them. Overall i would reccomend working here as a 'for the time being' job but definitely do not establish yourself in tesco
Free tea, coffee, bread etc. Some staff members are lovely. Increased rates on sunday and bank holiday.
Hounded to cover shifts. Toxic environment. Unfair progression. Favouritism.

I started on tills and then went to night floor filler but I needed something new so changed to evenings and manage stock control. Unfortunately again the hours are not enough as I require full time. It is a good place to work and the people are friendly
