Great company with good benefits
Customer Assistant/Cashier (Current Employee) –  Portsmouth, Hampshire21 August 2017
Good company with great benefits. Colleagues are fantastic, team support is wonderful, management can be a bit iffy but it depends on the manager. Absence policy leaves much to be desired but okay if you're healthy. Opportunities for advancement. Hardest part of the job is the occasional difficult customer. Most enjoyable is all the lovely customers you get to meet and become almost like family. Overtime is unreliable so you need good base hours.

Bad place to work
Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) –  Reading, Berkshire20 August 2017
I wouldn't reccemend this place to anyone as it's badly managed. Poor work life balance, if you have problems the mangers just laugh at you instead of trying to sort it

Comfortable work!
Cdd (Current Employee) –  Havant, Hampshire20 August 2017
There is nothing difficult or brain taxing about this job. Most drivers here on the whole enjoy the work. All that's needed is some common sense and a can-do attitude. The set-up is good. Support is good. We get the backing from management and senior staff alike. And the customers are great.
Unless you're incompetent, can't count up to sixty, and are scared of a 10 hour day, then this job is for you.
So if you feel you won't get the support from management, then Don't Bother.
Pros
Reasonable pay. Good benefits. Good teamwork.
Cons
May get wet sometimes.

Customer Assistant (Temporary) (Former Employee) –  Swindon19 August 2017
There was usually always someone there to help but if not customer services tried to help. Hourly rate was very good and Sundays meant you would be paid time and a half which was very good.

Personal Shopper (Former Employee) –  England18 August 2017
A typical day as a Personal Shopper involved pushing a trolley around and picking groceries. In my opinion the job would be more interesting if you were trained to work in all departments and changed from one to another periodically to make work varied and interesting.
Pros
10% staff discount
Cons
Boring

in terms of my employment, its going downhill
Customer Service Assistant (Current Employee) –  Leyland, Lancashire18 August 2017
At the present time Tesco are making too many cuts to contracts and hours meaning there is less overtime and little to no option for the expansion of my current working hours. This is making it incredibly difficult to pay bills without looking for loans and because of this Tesco no longer hold a good reputation for employment in my mind so much so that I am now looking to leave as soon as possible and find another job with enough hours for me to work to support my basic needs.
Pros
benefits package
Cons
not enough hours

Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Welwyn Garden City18 August 2017
Great work environment and benefits.

However there are numerous examples of people being promoted into bigger roles but no change to salary, being sold to them that if they prove themselves the rewards will come. Unfortunately they rarely do.

Terrible management and culture
Shift Leader (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, Cambridgeshire18 August 2017
Low morale amongst staff, much lauded benefits are on a difficult to navigate website which is rarely used or known about by staff.

Old equipment which needs replacing but never is making the job harder than necessary.

Too few members of staff for work to be done to a high enough standard for my liking.

Behaviour of problem staff tolerated to the detriment of the store.
Pros
None

Good pay, good work standards, no room for a career
Assistant (Current Employee) –  West Midlands18 August 2017
The pay compared to other retailers is very good and the management really look after their teams. No intentions to promote people into management. If you just want a job to pay bills then it's a good place to go.
Pros
Good Pay
Cons
No career advancement
