Technology at Tesco
If you think of your average Tesco store, technology might not be what immediately springs to mind. So it may surprise you to know that our innovation in technology began over 20 years ago with the launch of our Clubcard loyalty programme and the advent of dial-up shopping; and it hasn’t showed any signs of slowing down since then. Tesco is still at the forefront of technology and is central our entire business; from our supply chain to our stores, and of course online too.

We’re passionate about serving customers a little better every day and colleagues are at the heart of that. We want to nurture talent, so we run a range of successful store, distribution and office programmes for Graduates, Interns and Apprentices.
We believe that the most rewarding way to develop is through real-life business experience, which is why our grads, apprentices and interns join our teams by hitting the ground running, with the opportunity to have a real impact from the start.
No two days are the same at Tesco and this, coupled with our collaborative culture, is something we’re really proud of.

Our customers are at the heart of everything we do. And the one time they’re most likely to engage face-to-face with Tesco is when chatting at the checkout, or asking for help on the shopfloor. Our Customer Assistants, get on by being right at the heart of our in-store customer experience. Putting their abilities to the test, showing that ‘Every little helps’ by doing their bit, with the friendly, flexible approach needed to make a difference to our customers.

I have been working at Tesco full-time (Less than a year)
Totally professional team. Maintain units and trailers well. Lots of help and support from team trainers, free CPC, pay for any medical that may need to be done. They will be flexible on working times (time you may need to have time off for family or personal reasons). They like drivers to be flexible and if you put yourself out for them, it Willbe reciprocal.
One of the best companies to work for. Very very seriously do they take any infringement on HSE or company policies or working time infringements etc. and you could be out the door. And rightly so!
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tesco in March 2018.
Get invited for an interview, mine was a 1on1. If you pass the interview stage you are invited to take a driving assessment. My assessment took an hour long and it consisted of taking the van, which was an automatic, around the local area, while stopping briefly to perform certain manoeuvres, and then returning to Tesco where I was then offered the Job.
