    Cant be, all Id be doing is stacking shelves I can stack and go home, no taking work home with me. It would be a dream come true.

    That sounds a lot less lame than working with rude/ ignorant customers who leave things on the wrong shelves and mess things up. Or being ordered by someone as to what you're supposed to be doing. Or to have to sweep up. Or to be surrounded my angry, old bossy colleagues.

    Tesco jobs are very ****.
    I think sticking to project manager will payoff once a task is done.

    There's an in between though mate. Tesco is a bit extreme. I completely agree that if you aren't enjoying your job and it's causing unnecessary ongoing stress then you should find somewhere else. We spent most of our lives working we should ****ing enjoy it.

    But if you work at Tesco from your current position, the stress will probably be replaced with depression. You can easily find a less stressful job that's less well paid but still respectable and requires responsibility. Like I said there's an in between.

    And as someone who has worked at Tesco, yeah it wasn't bad part time but it would be a nightmare full time. A lot of the customers are lovely but some seriously treat you like you sub-human, with your only role in life being to serve.

    This means you have quite a few transferable skills so you cast your net a bit wider than Tesco.
