I did enjoy my placement in administration here. I found majority of my team were extremely friendly and made my placement enjoyable. I looked forward to going into work during the weeks. I found the workload was not stressful at all and it was very easy to carry out. After the placement however, I feel like I would not have a future job in administration as I sometimes did feel bored and uninspired by my work. I strongly felt every day of the week was very repetitive and I was carrying out the same work.
I had a great time on my internship. I was given a lot of responsibility, for an intern, which was highly rewarding. I also got to see numerous and diverse areas of the business; this is one of the most important aspects of an internship to me. I worked hard but I also had a lot of fun and got to see some extremely interesting things.
I found my placement with Tesco to be extremely enjoyable - I was given an immense amount of freedom with the direction in which I wanted to take my placement. I built great rapport with my fellow interns and all the staff which made the time pass by far too quickly.
This was my first internship, so I don't have much to compare it to, but I really enjoyed my 10 weeks in Tesco's technology department. I was allocated a meaningful project which would deliver real value for the company and its customers, and given plenty of support to complete it. The working environment was relaxed, surprisingly stress-free, and yet still motivated and challenging.
The Insight was a 10 week long internship. It was very enjotable as the peopel were friendly and they welcomed me into the team from the first day. I got to know them outside the office as well as inside. I got to know a range of business areas within Tesco, including GM, food, charity.
I was really fortunate in that I was able to spend time in two different parts of Tesco's clothing business F&F – Corporate Social Responsibility and Menswear Technical. CSR was about watching the horizon for new ways to make ourselves more sustainable as a business whereas Menswear was much more practical and focused on getting the task done at hand.
I really enjoyed my 10 weeks with Tesco. I was working in the Finance department and found the office environment to be both lively and welcoming. This really helped for me to quickly feel relaxed in my role and get the most out of the experience. Tesco made an effort to host many events to help make the expereince as fun as possible.
I enjoyed working for Tesco as a company and learning how different parts of the company worked together. With 500,000 (ish!) employees it is easy to imagine that you would feel lost in such a big company, but in Online I didn't find that at all. In terms of my particular role I didn't enjoy it to begin with, but towards the end of the internship everything clicked and I enjoyed it a lot more.
I really enjoyed my time at Tesco. Through the project I got, I learnt a lot and got to meet a lot of people around the business. The company has a really nice and friendly culture and although it is a massive business, it has a small-company feel in my opinion.
