    I worked at Tesco full-time

    Pros

    Good work/life balance; good compensation; good advancement opportunities; worked on real issues facing the business; lots of happy hours

    Cons

    lack of autonomy; lots of upheaval; lots of promotional levels; poor bonuses; fear based culture

    Advice to Management

    making us pay for hot water for tea was indicative of the low awareness for how management decisions impacted culture negatively

    Buyer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tesco (Houston, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Process was 30 minutes long with HR and department head. Was asked specifically to go through a typical day in a purchasing process that one had experienced. Interview was short and to the point. Was asked about salary expecting.
