    Pros

    Staff discount off shopping only thing decent.

    Cons

    Started a Seasonal Temp 16 hours.Which meant 52 hours over Xmas totally spoiled my Xmas!
    Team Leaders bullied you into working what suited them. They kept ringing me to come in on my days off and threatened you with your job when you couldn't come in. When I finished my shift they wanted to keep you working with no notice! The company use you to get what they want and don't care about you at all. Very different to what they say at the induction.I did get a 8 hour contract for a Saturday after Xmas ( big deal as all they wanted was tons of hours from you over Xmas) I lasted 3 months then they decided to just put me in 5 hours on a Saturday and 3 hours on a Sunday. How to spoil your weekend! I hated it as they just messed you around none stop! I hated it so i left and got another job...a job that respects me..very happy now.

    Advice to Management

    Stop saying how the company are caring. I needed more hours and no one at all helped - no one listened no one cared. Please tell me could they live off 8 hours a week?
    Management couldn't run a corner shop!
    Team Leaders are bullies need sorting out before you have no staff left.!!

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

    Pros

    Flexible, Always overtime, 10% discount, cheap collegue food

    Cons

    Home shopping drivers get no extra than other Collegues compared to other retailer's home shopping drivers even though job is much harder than sitting on a checkout, out on own, unsafe at night, pressured into overtime, rubbish career progression, Awful management, constantly running late due to shocking management in store and items not being picked in time. Was in city centre so constant 4th floor flats which other Companys e.g Tesco and Sainsbury's refuse to deliver to with no lift access. People stealing from vans. Tote's constantly loaded above the 25kg limit.

    Advice to Management

    Review the home shopping driver pay. Put 2 people out in each van for safety.

    Pros

    10% discount, think thats about it.

    Cons

    rubbish contracts and hours, made to feel guilty for having a break, rubbish cheap food in canteen, worked into the ground then disaplined for being ill, no one cares or listens to actual workers, managers only interested in number one and feathering their own nests.

    Advice to Management

    need to remember that colleagues are human beings and without mugs like us they wouldnt be able to afford their nice houses and posh holidays or new bmw company cars. colleagues are treated like second rate citizens, we dont even get celebration lunches anymore and it was only smart price stuff that was going ood anyway. a little more recognition wouldnt go a miss. and ROMs need to try talking to the people who actually do the work instead of talking to us via the GSM.
