    I have been working at Tesco full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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 worked at Tesco part-time

    Pros

    Decent salary as for part time job, Flexible shifts, uniform provided, Lots of overtime. They understand that it's only a part time role and they hire lots of students.

    Cons

    Lots of overtime, but if you're studying that is a con. Not many career prospects for regular employees (if working part time alongside your studies it is not a problem though)

    Advice to Management

    They are doing good job, but you should not expect too much of them. At the end of the day it's just a regular (fairly nice) part-time role.
