    No opinion of CEO

    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!
