    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Fast-paced, talented staff, well-equipped, forward thinking, good work-life balance, great benefits, beautiful campus…

    Cons

    Tremendous brand-name industry recognition. Even though it's a large Co with a lot of layers of management

  7. Great employer, perfect job for me.

    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 worked at ASDA

    Pros

    Good seasonal job to help with uni student living costs. Flexible hours. Fairly good pay compared to other retail stores. Most colleagues and managers are very friendly and approachable.

    Cons

    Management was weak in some areas. Progression is not easy. Section leaders are paid only a fraction more than junior colleagues and are expected to do the same work and the same hours as mamagers, including overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Improve chances of progression. Although improvements may have been made since I left.
