    I have been working at ASDA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The home shopping department at my store is like a little hidden Utopia amongst the mean streets of Northamptonshire.

    This particular store also enjoys the presence of the best Personal Shopper in the Whole Wide World and 2 of the best beards in the UK.

    You get to drive a lovely van around the lovely countryside delivering shopping to lovely, lovely people, listening to lovely music.

    Love the wide-angle mirrors.

    Automatic vans so you can steer with your left hand and leave your right arm on the window sill, and as to what to do with your free hand, use your imagination, the sky is the limit.

    Savage and relentless banter in the depot.

    Seriously green uniform.

    Cons

    "We're one of the biggest private sector employers in the world"......... But 2 months to get a pair of trousers.

    Being paid the bare legal minimum, to the penny, doesn't make you feel too valued. No extra money for driving. Considering the difference in potential consequences of messing up your job when stacking a shelf to driving a goods vehicle, that's pretty harsh.

    Reversing an Iveco autobox up a steep hill is an acquired skill for sure, u get used to it though.

    You might find yourself driving your own car miles down the motorway in 4th gear, and pulling up to roundabouts in 5th and wondering why you start to stall.

    Getting promoted would mean working in an ASDA.

    Other than that, no cons. Great job.

    Advice to Management

    If you pay minumum wage then by definition any other job someone gets offered can't be worse pay.

    I worked at ASDA part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Worked in a large store near Newcastle in the produce section. Work was reasonably satisfying and you knew what to do, filling up baskets of fruit and veg etc. Great supervisor.

    Cons

    Had to overlap with the night staff sometimes as I worked a late evening and they were a bit cliquey.

    I worked at ASDA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, colleagues and benefits. Team spirit, winning hearts and minds makes it. Learning and development is outstanding. A new challenge every day. Logistics is a great place to work, the former and current Logistics VPs are outstanding.

    Cons

    You will have to dedicate yourself and be prepared to sacrifice some work life balance. This business breeds winners and this isn't done by accident. If based at head office parking is difficult.
