General Operative including. Storeman (Former Employee) – Dublin – 4 September 2017
It was a great place of work for many years but a new ceo came in with a new plan and decided he was not going to honour hard earned contracts unfortunately redundancy began A valid reason for leaving.. Although it was a decent package and after 28years of loyal service my time at Tesco came to an end...
Shop Floor Assistant (Former Employee) – Navan, County Meath – 30 August 2017
Was dismissed when asked about Point Of Sale till training. Deputy Manager delegated his own tasks to temporary staff which took us away from our own tasks. Learned about SEL allocation and understanding their layout. Developed an ease of flow that made working more efficient when it came to time management. Developed a habit of clearing shop floor of excess cardboard into empty waste cages, which lasted even after my employment ceased.
Merchandising stock onto shelves (Former Employee) – Naas, County Kildare – 30 August 2017
minimum shifts were 5 hours up to 10 if asked. i would be on the tills most of the time as that was my job description but if there were quite times i would be placed on the floor to pack and restock shelves. or i would be placed within the clothing department. work place atmosphere was good as there was alot of friendly staff. and the most enjoyable part of the job was the interation with all the customers.
Customer Assistant (Former Employee) – Limerick – 29 August 2017
management can be ignorant and rude to temporary & longtime staff, some of whom treat certain employees more favourably then others! Some of my colleagues were very mean spirited and not very friendly others I couldn't praise enough! Every other aspect I didn't have an issue with but still had a very unpleasant experience overall.
Uniform, good hours, new skills, canteen
some employees are unfriendly and mean spirited, unsociable hours, management can be ignorant

Shop Assistant (Former Employee) – Roscrea, County Tipperary – 21 August 2017
Two weeks work experience during Transition Year in school. Some of the management was very friendly and helpful while others not so friendly and helpful. To be honest I felt slightly overworked, it was very hard work for long hours (8am to 6pm) as I was only 15 at the time and obviously I wasnt being paid either. However, I made no complaints and carried on with the work. I recieved a €20 voucher for tesco at the end of the week.
Customer assistant (Former Employee) – Dublin – 16 August 2017
Working for Tesco was an enjoyable experience. It's a really good place to work if you want to learn the different sides to retail. I worked there for one year and i that amount of time i learned more than i ever would've thought. I gained experience in merchandising, floor work, exchanges/refunds, working a checkout, taking in deliveries and learned everything there is to know about working in a warehouse. What made Tesco so enjoyable was the people i worked with everyday! i also loved how much work the company does for charity. What i didn't like about working in Tesco was that it got very stressful. It was very understaffed and they often gave unachievable workloads to staff.
