    I have been working at ASDA part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Clear focus on teamwork and collaboration for mutual gain. There is an evident concern towards a superior client service and employee welfare at the firm.

    Cons

    I feel that it is sometimes difficult to get noticed in a corporation as large as this one. There should also be a canteen supplying colleagues with food at major meal times.

    I have been working at ASDA part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very flexible work place, reasonable wage fits in with my life, Section leaders are slowly stepping up to the mark.

    Cons

    funny holiday systems, took holidays didn't get paid a fair amount as I only work part time, management said they would sort it and they never did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the culture of ASDA lot of cuts are happening which need to move forward however I can notice a big shift and a lot of colleges are loosing faith.

    Former Employee - Section Leader Services in Cannock, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Section Leader Services in Cannock, England (UK)

    I worked at ASDA full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good teams, nice people, pay is halfway to decent, relatively flexible, job safety, I have never had an issue with the management.

    Cons

    Long days can be expected, they only like to progress the 'favourites', pay should be more based on the job being done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Progress more than just favourites and consider the pay because people in supermarkets are being paid the same as those in superstores and I know for a fact that a lot less is expected in superstores for the same money...

    I have been working at ASDA

    Pros

    Great environment to work in. Optimistic employees. Fantastic pay. My job is pretty straightforward and I've even become close with workers in the other departments.

    Cons

    The hours that I do are really early and as a student, it's difficult to stay awake once I've finished because the job is tiring itself.
