    I have been working at Tesco part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I work at Tesco part-time as I am student. I’ve been working there for nearly 2 years and I absolutely love it!! These are the benefits of working for them:
    - everyone’s friendly
    - benefits (discount on food, gym, holidays)
    - customer-facing role
    - diversity of the role (never gets boring)
    - there’s always over time available which means you can end up earning a lot in a month

    Cons

    - there’s a lot of politics on who likes who and this can affect career progression
    - overtime can sometimes be imposed on us as we have “flexible contracts”
    - some people don’t like having to work over Christmas and holiday periods
