I have been working at ASDA part-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Easy work, good training, 10% off discount card, store performance related bonus scheme, good people to work with

Cons

Career progression slow, with many people sitting at stepping stones level with very few management vacancies coming up.
No sunday working supplement
Above minimum wage pay - but still very low paid job
I know many single mothers who have left their job to go onto benefits since they are financially better off

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Speed up career progression for those who wish further themselves - and open up more management vacancies for those who have been waiting years to get a first appointment as manager.
Introduce a Sunday working suplement

    I worked at ASDA part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Easy to learn the tasks and ways of work and good employee discount (10%). Fun can be had when working with employees and shift times can be ok.

    Cons

    Very boring and repetitive work, not a large enough money:work ratio, if caught speaking with employees you will be shouted at or asked why are you speaking? When all managers do is walk around and speak to people. Not a fun environment. Customers will get angry if you dont know where something is. Christmas time and easter sucks majorly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give me your job, it looks easy as hell.
