Okay as a transition job

Shop Floor Assistant (Former Employee)
Bristol, England (UK)

I worked at ASDA

ProsQuite flexible when it comes to shift swaps
Keen eye for health and safety
Good for a part time job

ConsHighly unprofessional managers
Adamant about staff working either Saturday or Sunday (company policy blindly obeyed by all managers - even when it's not the case)
Poor flexibility with regards to changing departments and no job rotation
Paid less in comparison to the other BIG 3 retailers (Sainsburys, Morissons and TESCO)
Very monotonous work at times, but this is more characteristic of the industry rather than ASDA in particular

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior managers should be more carefully selected. My manager could not even spell properly (when leaving messages for checkout supervisors) and clearly did not have adequate communication and interpersonal skills to be in that position. Middle management is very poor, which probably is one of the factors leading to such a high turnover rate.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
