What employees are saying about Tesco

  • Best thing

    It's a very relaxed environment once you've gotten the hang of everything you're doing and the people you work with. The work is pretty good for the pay you get, especially if you do Sundays or nights. Hours are very flexible and the mangers can be great banter which makes you feel much more comfortable.

    Worst thing

    I was extremely ill for a week and half and had taken time off after almost passing out during a shift when trying to work despite my illness, this time off lead to my mangers decision to let me go but played it off to me as them feeling that I just wasn't a great fit for the company despite my known fast working pace. There was also an unreal about of drama and gossip made up about colleges including myself and it could cause large rifts in the workplace. I've heard this is very common at Tesco.

  • Best thing

    flexible, people I work with, short shifts

    Worst thing

    understaffed but store won’t employ new people, no full time contracts for regular staff but pressured to do overtime, 1.5 hour break for 9 hour shift just unnecessary
