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

    Pros

    Comparatively Good Pay, Decent facilities, Discount Card (10%), Quite flexible on working times when you need them to be.

    Cons

    Like all big companies, although Asda try their best, you are still just a number at the end of the day.

    Advice to Management

    Depot Managers generally do a good job, but have their hands tied to an extent, by head office, But Head Office Managers need to listen to "the man on the shop floor" before making decisions that end up failing and costing them financially.

    Pros

    I work nights so the pay is good

    Cons

    To much separation of departments some struggle to get their work done and others finish early and there is no initiative to help those who have too much to do.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t separate departments up from each other we are all colleagues and should be working as a team for the whole store not managers scoring points off each other.

    I have been working at ASDA part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people I work with can be a laugh , and generally the managers leave you to get on with the job. Some customers are difficult - but that is the same in any retail job. Quite Flexible if you want to change a shift (providing cover can arranged). Pay is average for the industry.

    Cons

    Little chance of progression off the shop floor. As with all retail jobs expect to work shifts over xmas and new year.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within.
