    I have been working at ASDA part-time

    Pros

    I have worked here for quite a long time. Have loved most of it. Most colleagues are lovely.

    Cons

    Unproffesionism to the up most. NOTHING is confidential.
    Management is poor.
    No communication.
    Hard work ignored, lazy people praised.
    Management do not care in the slightest about their colleagues. Brakes are clock watched but management can take hours. I was told on starting at asda that if you make a decision involving a customer I.e ID checked etc. Then section leaders and management would back you. I have witnessed the opposite and management even telling customers that their colleagues are in the wrong etc when they haven't been just make themselves look good.
    There is no compassion where personal circumstances are Involved.....
    20 minute rule with fresh food is ignored as is colleague safety.
    Nothing is ever appreciated.
    The list could go on forever.
    There is a good reason for all the good members of staff leavinh.. ..before long you will have none.

    Advice to Management

    Review the managers themselves. Actually do something and listen to your collegues....
