Upon graduating from the University of Bratislava, I wasn’t entirely certain what I wanted to do. I was looking for a job that would allow me to explore different paths until I found the one that was the best fit for me. Acquaintances had suggested that Tesco might be just the company to provide such an opportunity.
What I find particularly appealing and motivating about this workplace is the way in which my colleagues – including managers – treat young people. It’s all about creating opportunities. Having worked in a number of departments, I’ve gained a solid understanding of their operations and the benefits and drawbacks of various tasks. If there’s a job opening that fits me, I can apply and move up the ladder. And with each new experience, I’m able to broaden my skillset and take on even more challenging roles.
Furthermore, the vibe among colleagues is just great. It doesn’t matter how old you are, where you come from, what previous experience you have, as everyone is willing to provide support to one another. As an example, during my tenure as an intern, I proposed the idea of having a Halloween pumpkin carving party and my colleagues, in addition to endorsing the idea, offered to assist in any way possible. Such gestures serve not only to uphold, but also strengthen the corporate culture here.
