    I have been working at Tesco full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very professional company. Great management in stores that have changed their values over the years. New Senior Leadership, making the right decisions (finally) to benefit our customers. 10% discount.

    Cons

    Previous Senior Leadership leaving giving us bad name and regular abuse because you work for Tesco. Consistency of treatment, some get certain perks for their development ie Fuel expenses while on placement - A colleague was allowed to claim yet I wasn't allowed to claim a penny, even though policy said so. Work/life balance can be hindered if you are unorganised and some Store Managers expect ridiculous hours but some do not, dependant on where you are. One week I wasn't allowed a day off which is against the law. Salary for Managers - I am underpaid in comparison to equivilent roles with other companies. Decent pension scheme scrapped, benefits are old fashioned, no pay rise this year which is shocking considering inflation is positive.

    Advice to Management

    Please provide 'step up' wage for people on placements as I shouldn't be financially worse off for for doing a bigger role and travelling a bit further. I wouldn't expect fuel money once signed off and in a vacancy but when developing, this needs to be looked at.
