    Thats god! When you applied did they call you for an over the phone interview? I haven't received a rejection email but I think I missed their call

    They just phoned me to ask if i was still interested in the job and asked me what day was best for an interview.

    I had an interview for personal shopper last week and the interviewer said I had her recommendation and just needed to wait on my NI forms to get back to her. Its been 6 days and i've not heard back, my sister says I should call and ask for any info but I'm not sure. Any advice or info I could get from anyone?

    I get £7.09 and I'm a general assistant and as far as I'm aware all general assistants get that much, then obviously the managers get more. For my induction we just wore smart-casual clothes, just look the part so they know they did a good job employing the right people. My induction lasted 5-6 hours and we had to watch multiple videos on everything about tescos and the essential info you need to know, then we went through some questions as a table and finally did some rumbling (making the shop floor look nice).

    I'm currently on £7.39 an hour and £11.09 on a Sunday or Bank Holiday.

    Breaks are unpaid. And 1 hour 30 mins break for a 9 hour shift I believe so you get paid 7 hours 30 mins for a 9 hour shift.

    I've been working at Tesco part time for nearly 6 months now on checkouts and sometimes stock control as overtime.
    If anyone has any questions, I'll try and give the best answer I can.

    On your induction or over the phone your boss will sort it out soon after you arrive (or you can order uniform online now) but for the first couple of week just dress in smart trousers and a white or blue shirt.
