Fine for a temporary gig

Indeed featured review

Menial work, managers can oftentimes be poorly trainedThe work can be pretty mindless but the pay is okay for the work and it’s honestly fine for a few short years as a temporary job

Productive but boring days

Not great not awful . Good facilities and management seemed to be helpful for the most part. Potential to progress is minimal. Work is repetitive and at times stressful.

Depressing and very clicky

Company is trying to cut corners in every possible way especially when it comes to staff. It actually used to be a fairly good and fun place to work but over the years it’s going downhill rapidly. God help you if you have any length of service with this company because all they will want is rid of you for it. New contracts are worthless

Kept busy

Decent hours, always kept busy whether on tills or shop floor so shift goes quickly. Flexible hours so very hand if you are a college student. Pay could be better.

Really nice job. Kept busy during shift with restocking and delivery. The pay was good, also got a colleague discount which was handy. Managers were all supportive and nice. Other colleagues were easy to get along with

Not the best

Honestly management need to communicate better with each other because one manager tell you to do something and another tells gives out for doing it. Always been told to go faster. Certain people get away with murder but others watched like a hawk. The pay isn’t worth how customers treat you and they treat you worse in here I feel cause management have a “customer is always right” mindset.Could go on for hours but if the management was better I would love it cause my colleagues are lovely and will comfort you when you’re upset and the security guard will try his best to help more than some managers

Bad place to work no room for progression and poor management. Premium time taken away from us and newer staff on a higher flat rate. Don’t get stuck in here

Ok to work in but can get very stressful sometimes, money ok but could be better management ok. All in all just ok to work in at times. Working day consists of early starts with sometimes late finishes

Great colleagues... Management needs a change

Management in Tesco needs a change in higher levels .. they dislike certain department just on basis they don't stack shelves .. some colleagues told to do work of 3 people in short time and if not done they get in trouble

Okay place to work

Pro: Great opportunities to progress and always busy with day to day duties.Con: Understaffing and low pay hourly rate is causing a lot of turnover and destroying moral within stores.

Decent and fair work and very easy to get by in. Work reasonably and there won’t be any problems. Great as a college job or a first time job. Contracts are getting worse now for new employees

Under staffed and over worked

You are expected to do the job of 2 people. I suffer with back issues as a result of the pressure to complete massive deliveries on my own in a short space of time.

Fun and rewarding place to work

Overall working at Tesco was a good experience. Always had a laugh with my colleagues and there was always great chemistry amongst the staff. Some downsides include the negative encounters you can have with rude customers and also the shift patterns you can be expected to work sometimes.

Night shift

Good payEasy enough work. Big shop but are given a certain amount to do each night and it keeps you occupied. Staff are friendly also. Fair play in the workplace

Repetitive work environment, Horrible staff treat you like a number and not a person. Heavily statistic based where one mistake is treated like a bombshell in the office and will set what type of person you are in their eyes. Pay is good if you can handle the TLs and Ops managers as most of them are snobs

Co workers only positive

Each department had their own manager. My manager was awful.I envied the other departments as they had much nicer managers.The people made the job bareable

its ok

Good enough training provided for an entry level role. Nice team of coworkers. Managers can be a mixed bag. Challenging at first but ya get used to it soon.
