If you apply for Tesco jobs and are asked at interview if you think that Tesco is bad for local shopkeepers, stress that Tesco is good for local customers because of the low prices and convenience that Tesco provides.

Third-party Tesco job sites
Some Tesco vacancies can be found on third party job vacancy sites like CV-library, 1Job, or Reed. Also, they often have good advice on job seeking in general. To make the best use of your time, it's best looking for Tesco jobs on Tesco's own site, in the first instance. But third-party sites are worth investigating after you have fully investigated Tesco's own sources of information.
Tesco vacancies - Tesco as an employer
Tesco vacancies are to be found in many different departments, and recruitment for Tesco jobs is ongoing throughout the year
- There are Tesco vacancies to suit every skill and qualification.
Before applying for Tesco vacancies get to know Tesco. By exploring the information about Tesco through the links on this site, and through searching Tesco's own sites using Tesco Jobs Search, you can learn a lot more about the company, and go to interview armed with information.
As Tesco is one of the largest employers in the UK, Tesco vacancies can be found in most cities. Tesco employ around 250 000 people, and, even in present economic circumstances, there are always new Tesco jobs on offer.
If you are flexible, you should have some
chance of finding Tesco job vacancies. Be careful to take account of your local area
to get a realistic impression of your chances of filling a Tesco vacancy. For instance,
if a factory or large Woolworths store has just closed in your area competition
is likely to be tough.
With movement of workers across the EU having been made easier, Tesco job vacancies have attracted many Polish and other European citizens, especially in Tesco's more specialized jobs like lorry driving. Coming from countries where wages are lower, these people are very keen workers and UK workers have to be very on the ball to compete with them. But local knowledge is always very important, and UK workers should always have an advantage in finding UK jobs. The key thing is not to be complacent. Don't expect to get Tesco jobs unless you put in some groundwork before applying.
Once you have a job, Tesco are very good at promoting from within. Even a school leaver with few qualifications can make it to Tesco Store Management and higher.
