    I have been working at Tesco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Pay Great People Discount is helpful!

    Cons

    i worked in an extra store, a lot of the time we were understaffed, tesco like to employ customer assistants under a 16 hour contract which is impossible to live on

    Advice to Management

    hire staff with higher contracts, paid 15 minute breaks, more staff discounts and make overtime more regularly available

    I worked at Tesco full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They pay overtime in this position. In the beginning it was great company, with the President welcoming each temp or new employee. It is a worldwide company so there are opportunities everywhere. Admin is a generic title as you could be in accounting or assisting a manager.

    Cons

    I had 8 managers in 8 years. Turnover is Huge. Difficult to advance

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to stop the revolving door. Listen to more little people, especially if they are dealing with a constant change in leadership

    I worked at Tesco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great teams to work in, enjoyable challenges. Possibly great career prospects if willing to wait.

    Cons

    Too much carrot dangling without results. To many decisions made from management who don't work in stores.

    Advice to Management

    Spend time in stores to see how things really work. It would save time and money.

    I have been working at Tesco full-time

    Pros

    Having worked for a different supermarket previously I find that Tesco are much more interested in the wellbeing of their employees than some other companies are. This alone makes it a great place to work

    Cons

    Sometimes you are expected to get on with doing a job when you are not trained to do so. Tesco now seem to only hire people on part time flexi contracts which can be a disadvantage for those with restricted availability

    Advice to Management

    At times management can go missing from the shop floor when they could really be out helping their colleagues.
