Reviews from Tesco employees

  • Best thing

    Where I work there is a lot of people who have worked there for a lot of years, so we have lots of friends as colleagues

    Worst thing

    All the newbies are on zero contracts, I feel sorry for them not having regular shifts

    7.6

    Tesco Employee, September 2022

  • Best thing

    The rota is really easy to change

    Worst thing

    The people aren’t trained well so it can become dangerous when working. There is a lot of favoritism and I went to them about a man touching my leg and being inappropriate and they didn’t care
