    Pros

    Individual work, good pay, not many customers on the night shift, good employees who work well as a team.

    Cons

    Top down, bureaucratic managers, who can be unfair and unappreciative of the hard work that their staff carry out. There was no consideration for work/university balance and my manager even changed the dates I agreed to work at Christmas when I was ill and told me my standard 8 hours was not enough..

    Advice to Management

    Be kinder to your staff, they work extremely hard and manners do not cost a thing

    I have been working at ASDA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Staff discount, however it is not used a lot because staff can get better deals at other sources.

    Cons

    Requesting time off is very difficult, most requests are denied which I believe is a form of harrasment. This company is failing and the managers do not know what they are doing. The stores are disorganised, dirty, untidy, have unfriendly staff, and the shelves are full of gaps and no one has time to dress the store. This company is failing because they have not invested in staff or competent managers.

    Advice to Management

    Fill the shelves, improve availability of products, staff are not slaves...treat them with respect and it may be reciprocated. Improve quality of products, not every customer wants an overdose of fat, salt and sugar.


  10. "Overall a good experience"

    I worked at ASDA part-time

    Pros

    Staff were friendly, manager was polite and listened to concerns. Good working conditions and colleagues were approachable and willing to help you when required.

    Cons

    Even though overall working hours were tolerable, sometimes they were a little inflexible about swapping shifts. Manager was not always contactable if you had questions or concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Connect with workers more and be more attentive to the needs of workers.
    If you are more flexible to working hours workers would perform at an overall better standard.
