general assistant (Current Employee) – Dorset – 16 February 2018
The people are lovely, for me my management has been very good. but some stores can be rather lazy with their management. Their sickness system i found to be quite unfair, but i feel the pay is fair, and the bonus/benefits is good, they dont tend to act much on their staff feedback which is a shame. options to progress are very much fair and managers will pick up on potential.
nice people, easy job not too much stress
managers not strict enough, sickness system feels unfair
Warehouse Operative and Forklift Driver (Current Employee) – Crick – 16 February 2018
People are being pushed to hit the performance, even by breaking the health and safety rules, managers are rude and completely not helpful. The place is terribly dirty and untidy. Most of the people cannot even speak English.
Shift Leader (Current Employee) – Shepshed – 16 February 2018
Easy jobs but lots and lots of them. Small express store so much closer knit and like a little family. Had a good laugh most days. No reflection on company, only colleagues and manager. No colleagues wanted to support us with overtime, leaving the store dangerously undermanned at times. Boss was p*** poor at man management, not putting cover in place, going on holiday and not prepping anything, letting people off "sick" when drunk. Made this all very hard and I thought it was time to leave.
Tesco Customer Assistant (Former Employee) – Lakeside Shopping Centre, Essex – 16 February 2018
There are plenty of opportunities working for Tescos. it is also a good place to work because they give you the opportunity to make plenty of new friends. The down side to this is that some of the managers that i worked under at least use this to undermine people to get them to do what they dont want to do.
Shelf Filler (Former Employee) – Renfrewshire – 16 February 2018
I worked night shift during my employment in Tesco as a Shelf Stacker so this made it quite a bit easier to get the job done as there were no customers in the store, it was a very busy and sometimes very heavy job, bringing in deliveries and loading the stock onto the cages and then to the desired aisles. The team that I worked with both male and female were a really good bunch of people which made the job seem "easier" as it were,
People I worked with and early finishes which means you have the rest of the day to relax
Shifts are organised a week before giving no time for private life, shifts are often 4 hours long and in the night 6-10/7-11. job only becomes good after being with the company for years. never enough shifts to make any money so always stuck at the end of the month.
General Assistant (Former Employee) – Glasgow – 15 February 2018
The 24 hour nature of larger supermarkets has led to unsociable hours becoming the norm. Overall, the atmosphere and variety of different tasks kept things fresh and there was great scope for progression assuming you were willing to potentially relocate.
Night Cashier (Former Employee) – Rainham – 15 February 2018
Liked working here, variety every shift with different customers and times of the year. Spent time on the tills and shopfloor and enjoyed both immesley. Would like to go back to working for tesco as it was a nice job and the back then there was a staff discount card which is great if tou have a family.
General Assistant (Part-time) (Current Employee) – Greenock, Inverclyde – 14 February 2018
I've never had an issue with Tesco as company. There's a healthy give and take ethic within the store I worked in. There is always the opportunity to get experience on other departments if it's wanted. There's a culture of sharing knowledge and always teaching and helping coworkers.
Characteristics that I believe can improve my overall performance when working.

Dot Com Picker (Former Employee) – Rutherglen, Glasgow – 14 February 2018
Worked in dotcom in Rutherglen for Christmas period. Team Leader is a bully, he tells you you know where front door is if you cant do better, makes fun of people and favours others who are on their phones and talking during the pick. Tells you their is no overtime, but gives it to those he favours. You get into trouble if you go to the toilet. Always tells you your work isn't good enough. Management isn't much better and not approachable at all. Other staff in that department and store are not nice and talk to you like rubbish. Would only recommend working here if you like getting demoralised and bullied.
