Great Company to work for
Shift Leader (Current Employee) – Southampton, Hampshire – 18 June 2018
Tesco as a company is a really rewarding place to work with many added benefits.
The jobs is the same as any other retail environment where service is vital. Day to day jobs include working delivery to ensure the availability is there for the customers, making sure that the customer leaves with a smile.
The higher express management are really supportive, being available to help you if required and will actively work with you if you are looking to progress.
The hardest thing while working in convenience is as you're working in small teams, you'll frequently have times where you are short staffed and you have to meet expectations like making sure the day's deliveries are worked so they don't roll over into the next day; while also making sure that the customers need are met.
Another is working anti-social hours, where like other shift work, if you're on a rota you may work a lot of weekend late shift. Which make it difficult to make plans
However, that is only small negative as there are many positives with working in Tesco express. Such as the teams you work in make the job really enjoyable, as you're consistently making friends. Another is the company benefits like 10% off as colleague discount, added benefits include money off in selected restaurants and days out to places like Thorpe park. Lastly depending on the company's yearly results there is sometimes a annual bonus
Discount cards, great hourly rate
