    So...I emailed to double check...and the words are its 'potentially' an offer. but we still have to meet/talk to the distribution recruitment team to see if its right for us (ie: they also need to meet us)

    the lady from tesco said in theory there is no reason why it should get signed off and become a guaranteed offer as we were good enough for stores etc. so its still great news, but not 100% confirmed until after we speak to distribution team

    ye sounds the same as the phone call i had, she said its not 100% but they're seeing what they can do and its hopeful or something! trying to not get too excited until its a definite! but wahooooooooooooo! x

    yeah, basically i emailed to ask them to clarify and she called back lol

    she said its never 100% until the offer gets sent/signed off but there is no reason why it shouldnt happen.

    Just another waiting game for the phone call from distribution people now!

    sounds hopeful, she sounded positive in mine but I think she just didn't want to say its 100% certain. exciting. will let you know when I hear anything xxx

    ahh this is good news. I didn't know whether we had actually been offered a place, or were being offered a place at the assessment centre for distribution - so hearing what you have been told is good news!

    Fingers crossed we will get on, I can't see why we wouldn't want it!

    im sure its not assessment centre because she said to me that we've done all the hard work so we don't have to re-apply or do any part of the process again just have a meeting with them!

    excited! I was reluctant to go down the distribution route at first as thats what my dad did with tesco, but I am surpised at how excited by it i am!

    ye and its skills which can be used later because every company has some sort of distribution, and at the end of the day its a graduate scheme with a decent salary and were lucky to have that opportunity....just need to get a 2:1 now haha
  9. Offline

    yeah, at least I don't have that worry as my grades on my masters don't matter! I am sure you will do fine!
  10. Offline

    Yeah 2:1 is the main worry for me as well now haha just about to hand my dissertation is as well, so this could play a major part in it!

    Let me know if you hear anything else guys

    got a follow up email from yesterday, doesn't sound half as positive as the phone call! lol
  12. Offline

    yeah I agree, the email makes it sound as though its just something they're considering.

    Not gonna get my hopes now unless I hear anything concrete.

  14. Offline

    I had 2 missed calls from an unknown number at about 2PM today. I was in a seminar so couldn't answer it, even though I had a suspicion it would be Tesco!

    What exactly did they say?

    I'm hoping they will call back tomorrow!

    How much do tesco pay to training managers, roughly?
  16. Offline

    ye it was probably them then because thats about the time they rang me! not alot really, sounded very positive, she arranged a date with me to go to a distribution centre, shes going to send an email with all the details! im sure they'll ring back tomorrow! x
