What people are saying about Tesco

Cyber Security Bowl


works at 

Hoare lea

I am an electrical engineer on the consultancy side, and I am making the switch into Cyber security. I have an offer from EY as a cyber consultant and an offer from Tesco as a Cyber engineer and I am unsure which way to go. I am leaning more with EY as I get to try a lot more industries, however Tesco may offer better initial training for the proffession. I would appreciate any opinions to help? Thanks

      Brand Marketing Strategist

      Have you ever done interview & just felt the team or company wasn’t sitting well with your gut? How does that factor into your decision if an offer is made? Obv a job interview time is limited so you never know but sometimes I just have a vibe it’s not a match and even though I may keep going in rounds, I’m always checking if I finally get the gut feeling this may be right. I had one where round 1-4 the mood was off. I felt I was being nitpicked harshly always, they rejected me in the end

      Quality Assurance Associate

      For those who are/were in management- At how many years of experience did you get your first job as a manager? How did you make the jump into leadership? For people whose first management role started at a new company, how did you convince them since you had no prior experience in management??
