Good wage. Training not very good but you learn on the job. Good fun if you like to help customers . Managers vary in kindness. But all the other staff were helpful

Company run by vultures
I've worked for Tesco for 15 years and the company has got worse every year. In its current form Tesco is just a mess. Not enough hours to do the jobs they ask to be completed, not enough equipment, poor pay rises and no decent hourly contracts for people. If your a manager like me you will be threatened with redundancies every year and they will keep increasing your work load and give you no payrise. I now do the jobs of what used to be 6 managers who all had 36 hrs each to complete them jobs and have more staff at their disposal. I would avoid Tesco at all costs you will be nothing more than a number to them and they will cast you aside if it means it will protect the top bosses bonus which is in the millions every year.
