    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 3 years)

    Pros

    -Great people
    -good work/life balance - great for students.
    -better pay than most other equivalent jobs
    -Sunday premium pay
    -Easy to move departments/change roles

    Cons

    Pay still isn't the best and the recent salary increase was very misleading as I am now earning less due to premiums being taken away.

    I have been working at Tesco part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, majority of staff are nice. The option to move to other departments and it is easy to do so. Can be a nice environment if you enjoy the department you are on

    Cons

    Managers have clear favourites and a ‘clique’ attitude is formed on departents. When complaints are made nothing is done to help

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone fairly and keep a work relationship rather than trying to be best friends with individuals and creating clear favouritism
