    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 part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Clear focus on teamwork and collaboration for mutual gain. There is an evident concern towards a superior client service and employee welfare at the firm.

    Cons

    I feel that it is sometimes difficult to get noticed in a corporation as large as this one. There should also be a canteen supplying colleagues with food at major meal times.
