    This is for the Leicester store, right? I've been waiting too!

    I think I've read on here that it took them about 3-4 weeks to get back to somebody once. Apparently if it remains "In Process" it means we may have failed this time round but they may consider us in the future. Hopefully they get in contact soon!

    Hey guys,
    I have been going through with Tesco for a part time job. I am literally ready to start, passed the interview and got offered the job on 23/01/2015 and my checks came back clear the following week. It has been 4/5 weeks now and my manager is on hold from his regional manager in regards to being allowed to recruit again. Does anyone know how longer it may take as I am getting really frustrated as I have been ringing in every 2 week to see if he can let me start and he is desperate for staff in his store. I am frustrated, my manager is frustrated too!


    He has guaranteed the job to be mine as long as no other Tesco is closed down -.-


    I'm just getting really anxious now

    Have you managed to contact the manager at Tesco who hired you? The managers at my store are always difficult to get hold of on the phone so I'd say go in and speak to the customer service desk and ask when he's in.

    Yes mate,it's the manager that i've been in contact with, it's an express store so it's easier to get hold of him, been told that all this malarky they are going through will be finalised and put to bed by the 25th March, guess I'll just have to wait :/

    i didnt turn up for interview because i thought it would be in Wed rather than Tuesday i called them up to confirm it but no one answered . so i received a message saying that i am unsuccessful for the position. after 2 weeks they called me again saying that they want to invite me for interview tomorrow which i accepted. but then again im confused! MY APPLICATION IT SAYS UNSUCCESSFUL and wants me to come again without applying or more LIKE (I DIDNT TURN UP FOR INTERVIEW) due to confusion.

    Hmmm I know there are some changes in the managerial structure going on in some stores so that might explain it. Good luck though!

    My checks took around 2-3weeks pal. Since it's been 2 weeks, it would be reasonable to give them a chase up call.

    Hey guys, freaking out about my privilege card usage. I've let my boyfriend use my card once, so it won't be my debit card on file but his. Do they often check privilege card statements?

    So starting pay is £7 an hour.
    As your hours are nights, you get night pay which I think is time and a half so you'd be on £10.50 an hour (not 100% sure)
    Coupled with the fact you are working 2 hours on a Sunday again time and a half, you'd be on £14 an hour for those two hours

    9 hour shifts have 1hr30 unpaid breaks, so in total you'll be paid for 15 hours work

    (2x14) + (13x10.50) = £164.50 a week

    I can't guarantee if it's 100% that but probably something around that figure
