Hi I work for Tesco from 3 months at night shifts 10pm-7am as stocker. I do my best but sometimes delivery are to big or they camiing to late and no mather how fast you work I still can't finish to 7am and then my manager saying that I have to stay and finish my job. Sometimes I have to stay until 8am or even 9am, this time is not a overtime, this time I work for free. They saying that my working time is not from 10pm-7am but until I finish my work, but no mather how long I work 8,9 hour I still have paid for 7,5h. Can they made my stay longer and work for free?!

I work in a Tesco superstore and I have witnessed on numerous occasions, line managers and team leaders gossiping about people and back stabbing people they don't like. In my first month of working there I was bullied my my team leaders and line manager. I then moved to a new department in the same store and things were fine for a while until we had a new line manager. This line manager makes my life hell, I get criticised for giving customers too many carrier bags, I will look up from where I am sitting at my checkout and see her and one of my team leaders giving me filthy looks. She talks down to me and snaps at me. It's really horrible. On my days off I ... Read the complete review

NEVER WORK FOR TESCO. The management teams' attitude towards staff is awful! I felt bullied by senior managers within store & gave me no support what so ever when I needed it. When I took this to grievance I got nowhere! Also I had a lot of issues with my contract & had nowhere near enough training when I moved into their opticians department. After 3 years of working for the company I have NOTHING good to say about them! Leaving was the best decision I ever made! :)

Tesco is just a complete joke. I never received any training whilst being a general assistant. Suddenly I was placed on the options as the store needed to send two candidates. I didnt even get a chance to complete that as I was whisked to a different store as a checkout manager. I had no experience, staff were so fed up and had no morale.I was made work ridiculous shifts with not enough staff!!!! It actually led me to a mini breakdown where I drove to work, took one look at it and drove home crying. I just couldnt cope, horrible horrible place!!!!! Just used

I have worked in a number of organisations, but NEVER have I felt so low as working for Tesco in a Distribution Centre. I felt like "the sludge (polite version) at the bottom of the manpower well", as one colleague put it. Teamwork was non-existent except between managers and, quite independently and accidentally, unsupervised workers. Management "supervision" killed off any teamwork. The "supervision" consisted of shouting at and bullying the workers. No help or encouragement was given. There is little chance of promotion unless your face fits, in fact I have seen totally unsuitable candidates being whisked in as managers ... Read the complete review
