I have been trying to get an employment reference from Tesco.
The company (Company A)who offered me a new job and required the employment reference from Tesco sent them an email to external.enquiries@uk.tesco.com.  Included in the email was a link for Tesco to fill out and complete. I don't know if they completed this link, or they just sent out a basic employment reference to Company A. After checking with Tesco that the reference had been sent out, Company A did not receive the reference.
I have submitted the same reference request but now have to wait 5-6 for this to be processed by Tesco.
Is there anything I can do to speed this process up?

Meant to be starting a new job in a week but Tesco haven’t sent my reference to new employer that was requested is there anyway of chasing this up? Asked TM but he said he wouldn’t deal with it.  ???

Can anyone with experience in the matter advise what the company actually include in an employment reference?

Had a lot of time off in the past couple of years and also many years ago for bereavement and worried it could be mentioned as absence and portray me negatively.

 Official company references don't contain anything like that - just day of joining, leaving and position name.

Hi.

I'm just wondering what people's experience is when requesting a reference for a mortgage?  My mortgage company has requested that the information be emailed to them but it seems that HO have posted it and now a good week after Tesco say it was posted my mortgage company still have not received it.  Any advice would be welcome. :thumbup:

I work in an Express store but i guess it should be no different to other formats, get company A to email <store number>@uk.tesco.com, that way your direct manager or SM can give a reference.

Will they contain the reason you left? For example dismissal resignation ect or will they literally just state the day you started and the day you left?

They shouldn’t have it’s actually misconduct for store managers  to send reference. he/She can send there own personal reference but this can not contain specific information regarding you employment nor from a Tesco email address.

It only states the period you were employed there no other details.

waiting for a reference myself, employer sent email request to tesco. Then tesco emailed a request form to the employer, this request form (then emailed by the employer to me) had to be filled in and signed by myself, giving tesco permission to give the reference to the employer. that was a few days ago, and I have heard nothing yet. But reading the above comments, I don't hold out much hope of expediency. In my case though I am not that concerned, there is no rush and I sort of expected tesco to c**k it up, par for the course with tesco.
