Horrible place to work

Analyst (Former Employee)
Cheshunt, England (UK)

I worked at Tesco full-time for less than a year

ProsIf you got promoted, the salaries went up dramatically

ConsLong hours were expected, no flexibility, they thought you should consider it a privilege to be able to stay late and work for them. However, if you were in 5 minutes past 9am, that would be a cause for concern.

Management were frequently bullies, and it was considered acceptable for them to shout abuse at employees on a regular basis.

People were promoted based on saying the right things to the right people, rather than based on actual merit.

Decent place to earn a living.

Fishmonger (Current Employee)
Clay Cross, England (UK)

I have been working at Tesco full-time for more than a year


Pros: Good people to work with - don't always work with bureaucrats. Competitive… Cons: You are working with normal people - complain a lot, 'bitchy' and so… Advice to Senior Management: Ask for more opinions from the normal people you employ.… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
