Former Employee - Trading Assistant

I worked at J Sainsbury part-time for more than a year

Pros

Friendly environment, satisfying to see organised shelves

Cons

There weren't any for me

Advice to Management

Keep doing what they're doing

Current Employee - Buying Manager

I have been working at Tesco full-time for less than a year

Pros

Benefits, work-life balance, range of projects, fast-pace and senior-leadership accessibility. People focused and a growth mindset culture (especially leaders).

Cons

Diversity, inconsistent development plans, internal feedback culture, lack of structure in meetings. Feels relatively hierarchical sometimes.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work around listening to colleagues and promoting employee wellbeing.
