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

    Pros

    Really good place to work, great pay, good management structure with people always around to help. Really good with holidays and very lenient, also strict with health and safety and making sure the employee is learning and having opportunities through online teaching systems where they can learn of these opportunities. Also very kind with discounts and money off of products every month. Great company to work for overall,

    Cons

    None, everything is well done.

    I worked at Tesco full-time

    Pros

    Really good training in place
    Options- management training
    If you work hard, you’re noticed by management
    Staff canteen- subsidised food is always a plus
    Staff discount card

    Cons

    Customers can be very challenging at times but that’s the nature of the job.
    Getting contracted hours is difficult but the overtime is there to be worked
    Good holidays

    Advice to Management

    Shame that management positions froze. Beforehand, options meant you could apply for management role. Now you go through options with no reward at the end.
