A stable minimum, wage part time job
Asda Ace (Former Employee) – Wiltshire – 30 November 2017
I worked in two stints for a total of 6 1/2 years.
Second year in due to hours being cut I relocated to another store, which I returned back from 6 months later.
Subsequent yearly reviews meant further hours lost and the introduction of MicroFibre.
Good parts about the job being, it is a guaranteed job (due to long company contracts with the store) with stable hours and pay every fortnight, and the people you work with are lovely on the whole.
Bad points being, the yearly potential hours / job cuts, and people being lazy at doing their jobs are not challenged to improve by their manager.
Little to no chance of progression in the company.
Managers don't last very long.
Also the employee benefits scheme, although recently improved is still poor and not appropriate for people on such low income.
As one manager said, it's not a living wage but you've always got a job. But year on year, how many hours a week you will have could vary.
A stable job, regular hours and pay every two weeks.
Minimum wage, poor benefits, no chance of progression in the company
