Good place to work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Money on time, salary is OK. Work colleagues are good. No problem with company. Can be hard work at times but not every day. Management is fairly good.

Awful Management, stressful and understaffed

Management is a joke. They expect you to do the work of an 8hr shift jammed into a 5 hour shift but refuse to give anyone extra hours. They don’t care about the well-being of staffs mental health. God forbid you are ever sick because you are constantly questioned about it and are made to feel like you are a liar when you are genuinely ill. The only positive thing is my colleagues who are all very lovely and without them I would have been driven mad. Every since I’ve started working here my mental health has taken a drastic hit, I’ve never felt so low in my life and have been made to feel like my feelings don’t matter. Legit had a panic attack at work and manger said it was “just hormones” and we all have days like that which just makes me feel even worse.

Good money back 8 years ago

Used to pay well but not so much anymore.. good place if you want to advance to become a manager they used to give you the choice to do progress... Hours were never fair alot of late nights were done by the same people.

Friendly staff and management within the company

I have be very happy since I started working with Tesco extra. I love dealing with customers on a day to day running of the store and all the management staff and my work colleagues are very helpful and friendly Compared to other shops I've worked with in over the years Tesco Extra is by far the most amazing place to work in

It’s worth it

I had some great times and less great times at my 9 years in this company. If you’re given Opportunity to move up in there, take it. It has stood me in very good stead for other jobs. Each department is different and the staff on the whole are friendly, helpful and welcoming.

Nice and friendly environment

Was a nice place to work in. Staff friendly. Easy enough job and good enough pay if you stay there long. But many managers unprofessional and not many options for career growth. Uncompetitive pay if decide to progress.

Very cold place to work at times the management have no time to get to know there staff, there customer service is none existing the company has a greater interest in the stock levels rather than their staff well being.

Pros

Good salary

Cons

Work load.

Wouldn’t work there again

Tescos as a company and in every store cause too much stress and anxiety for the little pay you get. The discount is nice though but as for everything else stay away

Great place to work, staff are friendly and helpful. Training is fully provided and uniforms are also given. Overall I had a good experience working with them.

Gone downhill

When I first started in Tesco I really enjoyed my job and continued to until the last few months. Managers became unbearable and everything became very toxic. People who put in the work were taken for granted and no thanks was given. I would still be in my job at Tesco if the management didn't become so bad.

Okay I guess

Just not a place to feel happy or safe. Staff are run ragged. Fair play to them for keeping upWith the demands. Not many hours available. A place where you wouldn’t progress.

Pros

Uniform

Cons

Long hours
