    The Colleagues

    The pay is above minimum wage. I’ve had to work harder for less from other jobs, so it’s not too bad.

    Worst thing

    We have no manager and it’s been like that for a while !!!! Our department has been falling to pieces. Hours have been cut like mad and other managers from other departments are clueless about how fnf works. So as a whole it’s been chaotic and its been quite draining for us staff.

Here’s a recent review that mentions hours:

  • 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.
