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!

Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    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

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Cons

    Not all Senior Directors who set and sponsor Values and Leadership behaviours practice them consistently
    Some cliques at a senior level and people protecting their own interests
    Seek feedback and challenge, but not always willing to listen to it
