    Advice to Management

    Promote more
    Back your staff when customers complain over nothing, it is demotivating when you don't do it and feels like being betrayed for your efforts for low pay

    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.

    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
