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

    Pros

    Quick easy transition into sales team. Mentor approach taken to improve system structure whilst communicating competency's within the marketing division.

    Cons

    Unruly hours culminated in tired mind and brain from exhumation of repetitive tasks which were mundane and un-asset crunching. Unmotivated workforce were omnipresent within the society walls of the company.

    Advice to Management

    If there is a straight shooter with upper management written all over him then he has to be explored in depth before rash decisions are made about the hierarchy associated with the baking stand.

    I have been working at ASDA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have always enjoyed working at Walmart. And I fine at this time in my life I want a change and new life abroad but stay with the company. I have always been drawn to Scotland.
    Walmart is a great company and I have a lot to offer still. I enjoy making a difference and helping people. What better way to do it.

    Cons

    Walmart always has challenges to best service sometimes but as a team and sharing ideas we can come up with new ideas and ways for all.

    Advice to Management

    Serving the customer and striving for excellence, respect for the individual are the three most important reasons we are one of the largest company's in the world.

    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 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.

    I have been working at ASDA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You can progress at your own pace. If you want to get involved in something its very possible to do. Pay is ok. You get out of working for Asda what you put into it.

    Cons

    Communication between departments and things left to the last minute to deliver.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to each other. Various areas of the business dont have a touch point. and before you know it, unrealistic goals in ridiculous time scales.
