    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

    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.

    Current Employee - Grocery Colleague in Glasgow, Scotland (UK)

    I have been working at ASDA part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It's easy work, colleagues and section leaders are really nice and more like friends than colleagues, good break times during long shifts, flexible hours, rewarding when you help a customer, pay is okay, double time or time and a half pay if you work bank holidays/weekends etc, safety shoes are provided if you ask for them, opportunity to learn other deparments, training provided

    Cons

    Job can be repetitive, on feet for 9+ hours some shifts especially if you work in grocery, lots of heavy lifting involved if you work on shop floor, have to deal with inconsiderate customers sometimes, managers can be distant, equipment like top stocking ladders and flat beds are rarely ever replaced, more comps needed for split etc, not enough warehouse staff so people from other departments have to do warehouse tasks,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe put rotas online or email rotas to colleagues as it is hard to find out your shifts if you're not in the day that the rota is out, give all colleagues work phones so they can contact section leaders etc when needed instead of running around shop looking for them, train colleagues properly on how to use price guns, provide some training days like to scrub up on things or refresh colleagues memory, offer full time contracts more often to colleagues instead of for example giving someone with a 10 hour contract a 40 hour contract one week then the next back to 10.
