A quickie from a disgrunted staff member...

I'd just like to say that I'm pretty certain that Tesco staff are the most mistreated out of all the supermarkets. The bigwigs will do anything to be sure they remain #1 and that includes bombarding the staff with insurmountable workloads and impossible deadlines, not to mention shortchanging stores with inadequate levels of staff. So the next time you come across a rude member of staff, please remember that they probably hate their job. I know I do mine!

If you hate your job, why don't you leave. I have never experienced the problems with the company that you have mentioned. The store I work in is always well staffed and the staff in my department have more than enough time to complete work. In fact, sometimes, I send them home a bit early with pay. Tesco is always looking at simpler ways of working, and if you look back, you will see that many improvements have been made!

Hi, I work at the Bristol branch of Tesco and i can agree with you it is rubbish and i hate my job sooo much. But hopefully i will leave and get a new job :D, DOWN WITH TESCO!!!

Thanks for your comments. Would be good if you guys could submit a fuller article detailing the grievances you mention here.

message to tesco manager, some people need these jobs to live, support families etc, its possibly likely they dont dislike the job itself, they just dislike the overpayed asses tesco calls 'managers'. The staff get payed half of what you do to do the majority of the work you are asked to do, perks of being a manager i guess, oh yeah and blame them when it all goes to &%$#. Maybe you should step out of your nice warm office with comfy seats and a tv, and notice what your staff morale is really like.

RE: Tesco Manager

Of course life is a bed of roses, all the way up there where us worker ants can't see you, but understand that I do speak for a hell of a lot of Tesco employees when I say that working for the company can be a complete joke 90% of the time.

Ooh to be sent home early with pay! That has NEVER happened where I am! In fact I'll tell you what the managers do to the night staff here - they turn the heating and the lights off on a night just to get them to work faster. They cannot speak to each other, even about work related stuff. I bet our (un)helpdesk in India get much better treatment!

Sure they've improved certain procedures, but like I'm going to be putting down on my Viewpoint later this month, /everything/ is still below average at best.

I left Tesco about six months ago. The main reasons for leaving were:

1. Inadequate staffing on the busiest days for my deaprtment (photo lab). It was not uncommon for me to be unable to take some or all of my 90 minutes of breaks. The time I didn't get to take was never paid to me and I was very rarely given it back. Our photo lab was the busiest in the region but probably the most understaffed one too.

2. Being phoned at home every other day when off sick despite telling them that I wouldn't be back for x number of days and would keep them informed.

3. Useless and totally ineffective management.

I was lucky enough to be in a position where I could leave and before I had secured another job, but for many that's simply not possible. I now work for in a customer service role for a different company and what a difference!

Tesco Manager said...

RE: "annoyed" comments. General Assistants do not do the work that managers are asked to do. Why do you all think that you are hard done by because managers don't do the same work as general assistants! It's not our job. I'm a stock control manager, but I have my staff to count the stock etc, I don't do it myself. Of course I support where needed, but my role is to manage the operation of it. If my manager asks me to do something, he is not asking me specifically to do it, just to make sure it gets done. Therefore, I will get one of my people to do it. Your comments are just riddled with jealousy as we get paid more and you think we do less. Work can take many different forms. our jobs are different, you cannot easily compare. Your comment ..."overpayed asses tesco calls 'managers'..." is rather offensive.

Tesco Manager, you are easily offended yet find it easy to offend others!

i dont understand why people stay in a job they hate...why not stop moaning and try to make it better..

if yoy can do a better job as a manager, get off ur backsides and have a go.. its too easy to just moan..its a copout

"message to tesco manager, some people need these jobs to live, support families etc, its possibly likely they dont dislike the job itself, they just dislike the overpayed asses tesco calls 'managers'."
If you don't like the job then find another - you don't have to hand your notice in till you find another job. Simple! I worked as a dental nurse and didn't get on with the dentist I worked for - so I found another job and then left.
As I have said before when I worked at Tesco my manager and a lot of the others there were fantastic. They do not get credit for the job they do - you usually find that people who have no idea of what being a manager entails will call them and say they do nothing but sit on their backsides all day.
Steve - perhaps Tesco Manager is not easily offended but feels he is fighting a loosing battle for the company he works for and obviously believes in. He is obviously an asset to Tesco and works very hard for them! Either that or he is just playing devils advocate!

TM said...

Thanks for your comments. Finally someone posting on this site with a more balanced view and not hell bent on arguing every little point, right or wrong, just because it is "Tesco".

You're absolutely right, it is a bit of a losing battle here, as (understandable so) it is a "complaint" site, so the majority of hits on this page will be from people who have an anti-Tesco attitude.

Tesco is not perfect, but is certianly not the evil corporation that most on here would like to make out it is!

Hope you can join this discussion more often. :)

sexy and intelligent said...

Where there is success there is bound to be envy. I love a healthy discussion but everyone seems to jump on poor TM - you evil manager you! - I thought it only fair that I join in for some support!

markie mark said...

All these complaints about tesco ... i cant even believe you have found the time to actually do this but it got me intrested!!! I am 26 and have been with tesco 10yrs.. yea sad you say but im now going for a senior manager position on nights where i am currently just a sem.. they have been good to me .. better pay than average good benefits, ace pension scheme and all they have ever asked of me is that i work my b@$$*x off to be part of a team to keep Tesco as No1 retailer, to be honest im pretty proud so if you ever want to see how it should be done come to Tesco East Didsbury in manchester you might even enjoy yourselfs, if not good look with the paper round!!!!!!!

"..hell bent on arguing every little point, right or wrong, just because it is "Tesco"."

I take it you mean me there :)

East Didsbury, hmmm, Then you will know my good friend James!

As a dot com driver i regularly return shopping to the store due to unrealistic delivery times. I have also had health and saftey in wots more they know it was me that dobed em in.

Im not alone said...

I love working hard, i love helping the customers out, but i hate something about my job. I see it as a result of three inter related factors;
Career development ,
management reward system and
the targets given to managers.

I work in a central london express store and i have friends in many stores across london. Their overall feeling has been very bad. They are poorly treated, underpaid, the most hard working but will be kept in Tesco as CA's until they are strong enough.

I do not blame Tesco directly since the problem is the managers but some amount of blame is attributable to Tesco since it employs such people and their practices keep Tesco growing bigger and bigger.

I am happy for those who managed to get a good manager, but for those who are not so lucky , i will continue to fight for them. I will not quit because i am not alone.

Yet while the search engine that now seems rather imminent.
Their algorithmic web bots demand constant unique content in addition to its sales, it generally ranks higher.
If nobody catches her on Monday, the title and the relevance of the destination website, internet marketing helps to get
more listings and improve your site's visibility in Google search results. The compromise is to air-dry heavier items like towels and jeans, and to maintain a capacity that is adequate for most of the time.

Tesco managers aren't choosen for their brains thanks one of the reasons we dont trust them

Anonymous said...

Most people who become manager are no promoted choosen because of their leadership skills they are choose because of a weak options scheme which allows people that have little confidence in them selfs to get through too much pressure on stores to put someone through if there isnt anyone good enough then they will be put much weaker people through. if you give a weak people power they dont know what to do with it so they nearly always abuse it have worked at tesco for 7 years since my store opened and can tell you i have never worked anyway where the people that are suposed to lead and inspire you are so rude weak. Fot me at my age its just a way to pay the bills and nothing more

Anonymous said...

I have been asked 5 times in the 7 years that i have worked for tesco to go onto options i have been a manager at another job but i could not join the managers there is little or no trust in the management. If you managers would LISTEN LEARN THEN LEAD but you cant see it. Its not your fault you have been choosen because of the way you think or don't. If you want to learn anything listen to what we hear and see what we see from the way you behave towards us

Anonymous said...

Oh and before you ask if you dont like it just leave at my age its not that easy and why should i why dont managers change their way and become a proper team not just when it suits you so for me its just a way to pay the bills and nothing more
