    I have been working at ASDA part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, understood university and travel commitments, altered my contract as and when I needed it changing, never had any problems with pay, diverse range of colleagues, discount card is a bonus, colleagues all friendly - lots of work nights out.

    Cons

    Working on tills can be boring but it's the same in any supermarket I guess, there wasn't enough space to have my own locker which was annoying but everybody was very trustworthy so not too much of a big issue.

    I have been working at ASDA as a contractor

    Pros

    Working for such a large company will always look good on your CV.

    Cons

    As a contractor you do not get the staff discount, you aren't allowed to park on site and you aren't allowed to use the company store. They also don't make you feel very welcome. They will take their departments off for frequent away days / team builds but you have to provide your own stationery. The on site cafe / canteen is over priced despite being full of ASDA products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your contractors more like your actual emoployee's after all, they are carrying out work important enough that you hired them!

    I have been working at ASDA

    Pros

    Great environment to work in. Optimistic employees. Fantastic pay. My job is pretty straightforward and I've even become close with workers in the other departments.

    Cons

    The hours that I do are really early and as a student, it's difficult to stay awake once I've finished because the job is tiring itself.

    Current Employee - Customer Service Assistant in Bournemouth, England (UK)

    I have been working at ASDA part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Training available
    Flexible hours
    occasional bonuses
    10% discount

    Cons

    Big divide between management and shop floor staff
    lack of HR
    discount seems minimal compared to other competitors
    Training is hard to get
    promotions are equally as hard to achieve

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More managers in store,
    Supervisor roles deserve more pay P/H as more responsibility - even if it is £1 more
    More customer service training needed
    Better safety procedures for colleagues
    Customers alway have the upperhand on colleagues especially on csd desk - unfair when working through policy
