    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

    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!

    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!

    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!
