    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.

    It was a good seasonal job during uni, but I was definitely just a number and not a valued member of the team.

    I worked at ASDA part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The times flies very quickly during shifts. You are often working with the same people every week so can build up friendships.

    Cons

    Due to the large staff numbers, management did not know anybody's name even after working there for over 3 months. Very difficult to find someone to ask for time off etc.
