3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I enjoy my program as it gave me a foot in the door into a company such as tesco and I am open to many possibilities. I would recoomend the program but feel it is not for someone looking for a 1st job as is far more intense than you would expect.

I feel valued to an extent but Tesco is a really big company and you need to understand this. It does not have th ebaility to congratulate you on every tiny good thing you do. however the team you work with tend to show they value you through praise now and then.

These are readily available on the company's internal website.
