Management listen but with one ear.
Sometimes no matter how hard you try, ideas/suggestions are just heard and not acted upon. pretty sad really as the guys there are absolutely brilliant. Hands tied springs to mind.

I can't say that Tesco's is the best supermarket I've been to, but the stores do usually have a range of items and plenty of stock to go with it. If you see one in the area, it might be best to use a different brand but you could probably get most of what you need from their stores.

When I worked for Tesco I found the environment extremely hostile. At the time I needed a stable part time job so i decided to try something new and joined the Bakery team in one of their Tesco Express stores.Worst decision of my life.

Who ever does the sut down is left on there own for 2 hours from 3 till 5. There is so much to do in that time and your expected to cook till 5 even though you close at 5 it is ridiculous and extremely stressful. Nothing is ever explained properly. And most of the time there is only 2 members of staff on and your constantly running around. Only get break if work 6 hours

As long as you go in and do your job to the best of your ability you will find it easy going. I did start to get a little hassle about working overtime - they are quite forceful with this so it's something to be wary of.
