Hi,
Long story short I have a job interview for tesco for a role that would require me to work 8 hours on a Saturday. I worked in a shop in first and second year. I did a placement, and after that didn't work in third year. I will be going into the final year of my Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering in September.
I don't really need the money so I would only be doing it for experience but would employers really care about a job like Tesco? It's a very full on course and I may be commuting alot but I'm not sure yet if it is online. Is it worth the extra stress? I don't want to go through the hassle of starting the job only to quit a month later because I need to focus on study.
Thank You

Hey working in tesco will be good for your communication skills, customer service skills and working with others plus helping the public out.
It will be good for you to have this your CV for future.
End of the day only yourself will know if it will cause you extra stress or not but why not give it a go or like you said of you travelling a lot then perhaps not start tesco job if you giving it up say in month or two...

I'd take the job for now.
You will get the skills, experience etc etc.
See how it goes once you start uni in September. If after a few weeks you find that it's too much then you could quit. By the. You will have been there 2 or 3 month's by that point anyway so if you do want to leave then you will have been there longer than just a month
