    I worked at Tesco part-time

    Pros

    Great working environment,
    friendly staff,
    real team spirit,
    easy to approach the team leader or manager if there were any problems

    Cons

    Customers could be annoying
    Had to be quick to book holidays if you wanted the good dates off
    Employee benefits decreased with time

    Advice to Management

    Consider increasing employee benefits like staff discount and vouchers
    Be flexible with holiday time
