Cashier | Coventry | 4 Jul 2020
Stressful, bad management and poor work culture
I wouldn't recommend working for this company. They treat you like a number and don't support you if you have any personal problems. The management is a joke and just expect more nothing is ever good enough so don't expect any thanks or praise. Colleagues can be good but there are some bad apples as in any organisation. Don't expect any advancement in your career unless you are in the 'in crowd'.
Pros10% discount for permanent staff after six months service
ConsThe company sucks so everything from working conditions to management to pay and hours

Friendly , efficient company
I enjoyed working for Tesco. I liked interacting with the other staff and customers. I preferred working on the checkouts to the delicatessen as there was a lot of washing up to do

I would recommend Tesco's as a place to work.
Worked there for approximately 30 + years. Worked my way up. Left due to structural changes in the Management roles. Enjoyed my time there. Enjoyed working with my colleagues and customers. Days varied, never boring.
ProsStaff discounts, buy as you earn, save as you earn, union, uniform provided.
Cleaner | Brighton | 31 Mar 2021
I loved cleaning for Tesco Stores in Brighton and Rottingdean.
If you ever need a new cleaner for your stores , let me know. Great people and good atmosphere.
I live in Brighton and loved meeting the local customers. I enjoy working with female cleaners since I find them great company and easy to get along with. The work is manual and rewarding and one feels proud of doing a good job and helping the company.
ProsWages were ok. Could be better.
ConsToo short hours . I would have like full time store cleaner ad my role.
Grocery Associate | Hednesford | 10 Dec 2020
Really enjoyed working at Tesco
If I could give 0 stars I would! Easy going job some days could be tough due to being short staffed and took months and months to recruit other colleagues. Management is POOR! managers have no idea what they are doing and the store I worked at was known locally by other stores to be the worst of the worst due to bad management and they seem to be one sided when situations arise. If you're looking for a place to work where you thrive off positive feedback from managers definitely avoid Tesco, no recognition for the blood, sweat and tears you put into the company. Most enjoyable part of working at Tesco is the benefits and work colleagues, the staff are amazing and deserve more recognition for their hard work.
ProsColleague Shop, Decent hourly rate
ConsManagement being #1 and too many other reasons to fit in the box.
Seasonal Associate | Colchester | 8 Oct 2019
Four weeks ago passed induction and still no contract and timing card, no uniform!
Even I don't know my rate per hour how much it is. Hard work . Disappointed as overall.
Warehouse Worker | Middlesbrough | 24 Jan 2021
A living nightmare.
Impossible targets always threatening you with dismissal. If your face fit you got yhe decent jobs but other than that you picked. No incentives. It was like working in a prisoner of war labour camp. They wanted machines working not humans. If you were fatigued towards the end of your shift due to the warp speed pace the team managers would come looking for you to tell you off like a school pupil. If you were sick you got told to man up and get on with it. I had to leave after 5 years due to stress and depression like most of the work force but please keep in mind this was the Distribution Centre and not the Supermarket.
ProsYou 10% Staff discount card
ConsEverything about the job
Transformation Manager | Welwyn Garden City | 14 Dec 2019
Challenging but Rewarding Workload and Environment
Employed to manage a role within the Finance Transformation Team using Oracle Source to Contract.
Roll out of the platform across UK / ROI & India, provide a centre of Excellence to Support Procurement Managers on a daily basis.and provide supporting training material for the Teams,
Recent changes have provided an opportunity to roll out another platform for Asia and Central Europe for Procurement and Legal Teams
Best part of the role is having the opportunity to communicate with different stakeholders and seeing a successful roll out across the group
The hardest part of the job is to manage the changes that can happen within a retail environment.
The culture can be relatively relaxed providing effective timelines are met and there are some good company benefits available, dress code is also casual on a daily basis
