Advice to Management

In order to succeed in the professional side of the business, you must encompass a different strategy offering more respect and career opportunities. Professionals do not have to be sen "rumbling" frozen foods or tissues in order to be part of your team. Focus on your professionals' strength!

    Pros

    Quite flexible when it comes to shift swaps
    Keen eye for health and safety
    Good for a part time job

    Cons

    Highly unprofessional managers
    Adamant about staff working either Saturday or Sunday (company policy blindly obeyed by all managers - even when it's not the case)
    Poor flexibility with regards to changing departments and no job rotation
    Paid less in comparison to the other BIG 3 retailers (Sainsburys, Morissons and TESCO)
    Very monotonous work at times, but this is more characteristic of the industry rather than ASDA in particular

    Advice to Management

    Senior managers should be more carefully selected. My manager could not even spell properly (when leaving messages for checkout supervisors) and clearly did not have adequate communication and interpersonal skills to be in that position. Middle management is very poor, which probably is one of the factors leading to such a high turnover rate.
