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

    Pros

    Stable, consistent, weekly pay, big company lots of departments room to move to other stores or into management over time.

    Cons

    Big staff turnover, always changing shifts, good hours given to longer standing employees with no options, no 2 days consecutive off, never offered higher paying days eg. bank holidays or Sundays always absolute minimum staffing on those days. no benefits other than discount card after a year of working, prioritise customers over staff wellbeing. Never given uniform after months, not trained when starting only two months down the line.

    Former Employee - Dut Manager in Dublin, Dublin
    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Tesco full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Generally, the staff were nice to work with I started there as a teenager and worked there for over 5 years. the customers were generally nice with exception to the odd self-entitled customer. Working there helped me develop good interpersonal skills and an ability to deal with different personality types.

    Cons

    I found that a lot of the leaders were incompetent and lazy which was also the case for some of the employees.
