    For people wondering how long the whole tesco process takes, something I would've liked to have known when applying;
    I applied for a role on the 23/10/15 (The same day as the closing date)
    I was contacted on the 18/11/15 telling me to come into a group interview on the 23/11/15
    I was then contacted on the 5/12/15 telling me to bring in my right to work documents as there was a problem on their end
    I was contacted today (10/12/15) telling me that I have the job and they'd like to invite me to a induction day on the 18/12/15
    So overall the whole process started on the 23/10/15 and will finish on 18/12/15
    Hopefully this gave people a good idea of how long the whole process takes

    Had my interview on the 14th December and it's still in process. Does it really take 6+ weeks for right to work?.

    They should have scanned all candidate's passport and birth certificate during the interview cause this right to work evidence process thing Tesco using is absolutely absurd.

    I would give them a phone and ask to speak to whoever it was that done your interview and ask whats happening. My right to work took 4 weeks to come back.

    I rang the store today and the personnel manager of the store is not in today, will ring again tomorrow.

    Does the unsuccessful candidates get rejected way before the long in process waiting stage?

    My status for the role is still on in process on the Tesco dashboard online.

    I would just keep ringing eventually you will find out. Do you remember the name of who done your interview? If so I'd ask to speak to them. I'm not sure if I'm being honest about unsuccessful candidates but they will have to let you know one way or another. On the Tesco Dashboard Online my status was still 'in process' until after my induction so it does take a while for that to change.

    How would I do a transfer?
    My parents are moving house in June after my A Level exams to somewhere that is around 45 minutes away from where I'm currently working at. This means I can't commute that far as the petrol costs would be way too high.

    Do I tell the Manager directly, or mention it to the Team Leader on my next shift? Would I have to contact stores near to my new house that I'll be moving to in June?

    It's better to start sorting your transfer out as soon as possible so they can try and match you to a vacancy in your new store. Next time you're in, either tell your line manager or find the personnel manager and they can sort it for you. Just explain your situation and they should try and help you with it.

    I applied on the 15th of January for a tesco express, and I still haven't heard back I'm 17, and worked at m&s for a few months so I know I answered the questions quite well as they were very similar to the m&s ones , does anyone know whether I should keep hoping for a call or give up and look elsewhere ?
