Current Role: Warehouse Service Coordinator
Location: Reading Distribution Centre
Joined Tesco: March 2016
I used to work in a small company back in my home country, Slovakia and my brother in-law said I should come over and work for one of the biggest depots in Europe. It was the best decision I’ve ever made.
It’s great working for such a passionate team, I’m learning something new every day and developing my own skills operationally and with people.
And, being able to work night shifts is great, as I can easily balance my work life with my home life. When I wake up I have the day to myself and I always make the most of the time off.
The biggest benefit for me are the opportunities available and the chance to get on in my career.
“My manager inspires me to come to work.”
The opportunities for self-development, coupled with support from colleagues and managers are among the reasons I love my job so much. My career has developed rapidly, from starting as an assembler/loader, to then becoming a trainer and working with new people. I am now a service coordinator managing different departments in the distribution centre.
It feels more like being part of a family than just a team, from the moment I started on my first day to where I am now.
“There are so many opportunities to develop and learn.”
In my spare time I love to travel, and have been lucky enough to have visited most of Europe. Day by day I enjoy reading good books, going to the cinema and self-learning. My Tesco Colleague Clubcard means I get loads of vouchers and money off for cinema tickets which both myself and my wife enjoy.
The one thing I will always say about Tesco is that if you want to get on and develop the opportunities are here for you. You just need to want it.
At Tesco, inspiring and helping colleagues to look after their whole well-being is really important to us, so they can feel great at work and at home.
We are proud to be a business full of varied opportunities. We give colleagues the tools to shape their own future with a career path that meets their own personal goals and aspirations.
We try hard to ensure we offer a broad choice of benefits to make Tesco a great place to work and shop. Our aim is to make our benefits easily accessible, simple to understand and great value for all our colleagues.
''When opportunities come your way go for it, be open minded and you never know where that path may lead you,''
