I worked at Tesco full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Really interesting work from the perspective of everybody already knows the business as most people have shopped there and can think of ways to improve it!

Really friendly peers there and Tesco is great for your CV!

Cons

Management try to restructure the organisation numerous times, you get moved around with no thought to what you want to do even though HR continually say they are always thinking about your career progression.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve your people skills, be approachable and listen to what work level 2's say as they know a lot!

    I worked at Tesco as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    staff discount. some decent people.

    Cons

    the current management are very rude, found out a few times they had been bad mouthing me and other members of staff behind our backs, they do what they want, and favour certain people which leaves other staff remembers feeling annoyed and under valued. holidays never seem to get booked properly even though we would book them months before hand. over time never got put through properly either so we would get under paid and have to wait another month to get what we are owed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management would be to start acting like a manager and not like teenage girls, gossiping about staff behind there backs.

    I worked at Tesco as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The really aren't any pro's when I was working there, I was a "flexi" contract is a way of them saying your hours aren't guaranteed, and when they asked you to stay even though they said you can go home as there's no overtime they complain.

    Really Did not enjoy working hear, especially when we were told we couldn't talk on the shop floor!

    Cons

    Flexi Contract
    Management have no clue
    Team leaders extremely lazy
