Very hard and not safe workplace
Warehouse Operative and Forklift Driver (Current Employee) –  Crick16 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.

Ok but went downhill fast
Shift Leader (Current Employee) –  Shepshed16 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.

Fun and easy place to work.
Tesco Customer Assistant (Former Employee) –  Lakeside Shopping Centre, Essex16 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.
Pros
cheap lunches and good opportunities.
Cons

Happy Workplace
Shelf Filler (Former Employee) –  Renfrewshire16 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,
Pros
People I worked with and early finishes which means you have the rest of the day to relax
Cons
Sometimes heavy work

Awful
Customer Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  Bridgend, Bridgend16 February 2018
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.
Pros
10% discount on shopping
Cons

Better of if they didn't hire agency's.
Order Picker (Former Employee) –  Livingston, West Lothian15 February 2018
This would be a far better server if the recruitment agency's were not their doing the work for them. Tescos would save a lot of hassle if they did it themselves.

After all they do the training not the agency's. It's tescos rules and laws not PMP recruitments.

We're talking about tescos management doing the hiring. Xx
Pros
Every little bit helps.
Cons
Not enough hours or work.

Great atmosphere and variety.
General Assistant (Former Employee) –  Glasgow15 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.

Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Borehamwood, Hertfordshire15 February 2018
a good company to work for & would recommend anyone to work for them. There are opportunities to move up the ladder to team leader or management, but like most companies you have to work at it.

good place to work
General Assistant (Part-time) (Current Employee) –  Greenock, Inverclyde14 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.

Dotcom...awful place to work
Dot Com Picker (Former Employee) –  Rutherglen, Glasgow14 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.
Pros
Leaving
Cons
team leader and management

Great place to be part of a team
People Manager (Former Employee) –  Essex14 February 2018
Tesco is a bit slow to keep pace with innovation. However if you enjoy working as part of a team it's a great place to work. Pay and benefits are average for this sector. Development is average.
Pros
Staff discounts
Cons
work/life balance is poor
