    THANk you! And it was a group interview we first went to the customer service desk then waited at the cafe with the others (around 5 Moreno people). We then got taken to the back of the big Tesco and went to a classroom sorry of room, where we met the manager/interviewer. We said our name ect and filled in some sheets with The date on it and things such as health and availabilities which was a tick sheet. She then asked us some questions which we had to speak about to the group.
    They were if I can remember correctly name something which makes you stand out from everybody else? What's something which you haven't wanted to do but you've done anyway and I can't remember the last one.
    we then went into another room which was in the canteen and one by one the interviewer called us in to the room we were just in.

    I don't know how everybody else's went but she said there were 2 F and F jobs which matched my times which I had ticked off on the sheet. So I chose one which matched my availability, and she offered me the job which I took. She also asked if we had any problems with health.

    and that's about it but tomorrow I am going for my open day where we have to watch videos and do rumbling which is doing stuff with the cardboard my friend had told me who works there. (9am-6pm but you get paid) My interview was on Wednesday and I was meant to start on Sunday after tomorrow's open day thing. but I am busy on Sunday so I am starting on Tuesday.

    I hope this helps and I am nervous but also excited about starting my new temporary job. 😬☺️Ps everyone ear says £7.22 ph I think it is!
    Thank you so much! Hope your first shift goes okay! My interview is at 8pm on Wednesday!

    How was the availability sheet laid out? Just I'm at uni so my lecture times change everyday, so I just want to figure out the best way to work out my availability!

    No problem! Had my first shift which was good and it's littrally a table with the top being the days (sun-sat) and the left side being the times from 1am to 12pm...if I can remember correctly. so you'll probably have to know exactly what times you can work. But the chances are they'll give you a job which is flexible but has specific times for you to work and they'll make sure and give you other options if you can make it. Good luck!

    TO THOSE WHO WOULD LIKE HELP WITH THE QUESTIONS. I did actually put them up but they got taken down due to them breaking the rules of TSR which I understand, so I can't really specifically help you 😬. But I can give you advice: just remember the customer comes first in the questions. I hope this helps! Good luck guys and any questions I can attempt to help you. (I guess it'll be easier if you need to ask me questions, just put them on here so it can help others at the same time as helping yourselves)

    I am interested in applying for this job at my local big Tesco, currently 16 and just started Sixth Form. What exactly do you do in this type of work since I am in need of a part time job and I feel like this would be my best option.
    Hiya! I suppose you were in the same sort of situation as me. What do you do? Well it really depends on what yourve applied for but it's not too hard work at all! The pay is great for our age and they are flexible and understand the responsibilities of school or collage. If I were you, i would see what jobs they have there and apply for the ones you could work at. Try and get one around 7 hours as you'll work 2 days for around 4 hours each shift which isn't hard. You'll also earn a decent about £60 per week and you can concentrate on your A levels. If I were you and there's one go and apply for it! I wish you the best of luck

    If you can't pass the questionnaire (which for festive workers is about 5 questions) then you obviously don't understand what Tesco's values are so I suggest you do some research. It's designed to weed out those not suitable for the job. It's not rocket science, the customer comes first, always.

    You will order your own uniform and badge online once you get your employee number. My salary started at £7.24 an hour and time and a half on Sundays. Pay can vary per store depending on size and your role. I doubt you'll earn any less than £7.
    The induction is boring, you have a store tour and watching videos, whilst answering a booklet. You also fill in a starter booklet adding in your personal details. Overall the day is long and drags, but it is worth it since most are paid!
