Best Places to Interview: 2017 (#20)
We believe every little help makes a big difference. Take a look at our Little Helps Plan which builds on the progress we have made so far to make a positive contribution to our customers, colleagues and communities.
At Tesco, we’re committed to making it easier for colleagues and customers to make healthier choices. Read about how regular team walks have delivered some surprising mental health benefits for colleagues at Tesco http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQH6Z
At Tesco, inspiring and helping colleagues to look after their whole wellbeing is really important to us, so they can feel great and work and at home. With over 400,000 colleagues globally, we have a responsibility to give everyone a great experience of working at Tesco.
We do this by offering more flexibility to balance home life with work, the opportunity to be part of a great team and make a difference to customers, as well as the chance to get on, do what you enjoy and develop your skills.
Opportunities don’t need to be structured – part time, job shares, there’s no limit. Working with us really can give you the best of both worlds – a career and family life. We're a big business with diverse shift patterns and many areas of expertise, which means we can find something that works for you.
Here at Tesco, everyone is welcome. Equality, diversity and inclusion is really important to us - whoever you are, wherever you work and whatever you do.
We aim to attract, develop and nurture talent wherever it exists, to build great teams that reflect our local communities and provide the best possible service for customers. We're committed to making sure differences are valued and all colleagues have the same opportunities.
The people we meet each day make our lives interesting, whether we’re at work or at home, so we know how important it is to network. That’s why colleagues in Tesco come together to create networks where people can chat and find out how others manage their careers, meet people in different areas of the business, or even just share ideas.
Our business was built with one simple mission - to be the champion for customers, helping them to enjoy a better quality of life and an easier way of living. Customers want great value products that they can buy easily, and it's our job to deliver them in the right way.
That's why we've chosen 'Serving Britain's shoppers a little better every day' as our new core purpose. As a business, serving customers is at the heart of everything we do - from colleagues in stores to supporting roles in our offices.
It’s our goal to make sure that the service is just a little better during every one of those customers’ visits.
Helping our colleagues succeed by providing them with the flexibility, skills and reward to ‘get on’
We’re proud to be a business full of varied opportunities. We give colleagues the tools to shape a career path that meets their own personal goals and aspirations.
Whether colleagues want to learn and grow in their current job, find a new role in a specialist area, or move to another part of the business to gain more experience, there’s a diverse range of career choices open to everyone working at Tesco.
We try hard to make sure that we offer a broad choice of benefits to make Tesco a great place to work and shop. Our aim is to provide colleague benefits that are easily accessible, simple to understand and great value for all, from day one.
Even though retirement may be many years away, we offer a Tesco Retirement Savings Plan when colleagues join where they can decide how much they save, and we match their contributions up to a maximum of 7.5%.
We also have a wide range of discounts and schemes designed to help colleagues save money on everyday costs and treats, from car tyres to theme parks. Tesco Mobile offers discounts to help make the most of their time out of work, and we’ve got great deals on days out and holidays.
Colleagues can also save on childcare costs with our childcare voucher scheme, stay healthy for less with our Cycle to Work scheme and enjoy national gym membership discounts and money off health plans.
I worked at Tesco (Less than a year)
Lots of learning at Tesco
There is nothing as such
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tesco.
The process involved a group interview where a range of situational questions were asked. We were then taken onto the shop floor for 20 minutes for a work sample and given an understanding of what our job would involve.
