Great colleagues-Awful management.
Customer Assistant/Cashier (Current Employee) – Swansea, Swansea – 16 July 2018
Tesco is a good company to work for, the work itself is fairly straight forward, the pay is just above NMW. What consistently lets them down is the management from team leader to store manager. Individuals promoted beyond their abilities with no idea how to do the basic administration of managing a store, this in turn leads to frantic last minute phone calls to cover shifts, shops running on skeleton staff, frequent late or incorrect pay, which then takes a month to sort out. Tesco also promotes a snitching culture which I have witnessed firsthand, staff cliques taking out their frustrations by ringing the report helpline. The customer assistants are fantastic people it just seems the management are quick to climb the ladder and then pull it up after them if you show any degree of ingenuity. To conclude Its a job.....which I am still in ironically.
Secure, Above NMW, Flexible
Terrible management, Frequent pay issues
