I enjoyed working seasonally at ASDA King's Lynn the team I worked with were very efficient and friendly. I learned about team work and customer service primarily as well as being able to develop confidence on the job. The most enjoyable part of the job was working somewhere where the team members go on and were there to help and support eachother.

Good and fun work place, A great bunch of staff who were willing to always go the extra mile for a customer. I learned a lot including cashing up, dealing with new till systems and just learning new things day in and day out.
Asda was at one time a really good place to work. But unfortunately the work force has been slashed so much it's getting harder to do your job safely. And progression in the company is really hard. If you want to step up without a university degree, it's a long tiresome slog.

Do not consider working in ASDA, They have Racist Managers who Talk to you like you are slave, They have no sense of respect, they shout at you and try to patronize you. They do not reply to your questions and are so rude.

Absolutely disgraceful. As a new starter / trainee everything is so rushed. No proper instruction on how to lift boxes, no proper information given about overtime (they just expect you to turn up when they want) Section leaders are a nightmare to deal with, they complain about work but are never actually in. Contract is not thoroughly explained to you. Overall summary: Back breaking work for peanuts (that's if you actually get paid). Nearly everyone is clique-y and everyone seems to bolt it if you need help. Managers get away with talking to you like horse feces and the more 'experienced' colleagues are even worse! It's a solid no from me.

One of the worst places I ever worked for, I worked there for a year You get hassled by the line managers to work faster because they get hassled from there managers who in turn get hassled from the Main Boss who gets hassled from the Area Manager who gets hassled from head quarters bosses who get hassled from the share holders...so basically most of the managers are stressed out most of the time & are on edge, as for staff I think they would be happier if they had robots stacking the shelves your nothing but a number to them, In fairness some of the staff were very pleasant but if your face doesnt fit & your not up to speed youl be edged out of the door.
