Friendly workplace
A friendly environment with lots to do, working with different people and building on customer service skills with everyday face-to-face experience with customers. ASDA allows you to feel important and it helps you build on important skills.

Shocking Management
Honestly my experience was terrible! I was a temp and had no training, was given a device and told to go and work. I came in and asked for a job and a week later was just given one with no interview or anything. They didn't make us sign a contract. I received EIGHT phone calls from different colleagues in a week to confirm what shifts I've been doing! You can't get ahold of ANYONE on their phone number which is absolutely irritating. No one seemed to know what they were doing. Once my temp position ended, they decided to underpay me by almost a grand!!!!! And they still can't answer my phone calls! I have had to make many unnecessary journeys into the store only to be told to come back another day! This is becoming very ridiculous!

Honestly the job itself isn't too bad, it's very boring and repetitive (and your eyes hurt by looking at the screen for a long time) but it's really really easy and passes time. But the poor and rude management is definitely not something you would want to get yourself into. I have contacted ACAS about this and if this doesn't get resolved then I am going to be opening an investigation with them on this!

Awful place to work .
Used to be a family friendly company . Has gone down hill dramatically with bad management , bullying culture and victimisation .
Standards vary according to if your face fits !

Close ranks in management to sweep under the carpet bad treatment of colleagues.

Would not recommend as a place to work

Very demanding
Time goes quickly at Asda if you can keep up ! Under staffed to many leaders and not enough staff,,,,
Shifts can change on short notice and nothing you do gets credited,,,,a security guard at Asda is the forgotten ones.

Nice place to work
People are friendly, generally a nice place to work, so long as you get on with your work you are left alone. I can honestly say I love my job and hours are perfect for me.

Team orientated environment
As a student working at asda has been a fantastic opportunity for me in all aspects. The pay is great for someone my age with many few out-goings, colleagues are very friendly, only downfall is customers who can be abusive.

Stable even during a pandemic
The role has been the most stable during the covid-19 pandemic. Working as a team to get the job done. Great atmosphere to work in. I would recommend working for ASDA.

Poor management
Horrible management, didn’t get my break numerous times as I was “too busy” to have one. Had problems with uniform and problems with clock card which both were not fixed.
When I was working at Asda I constantly got phone calls at early hours of the morning asking me to come in to work cos they had no one available. The times I did say no which wasn’t often the manager was not happy and wouldn’t give me any over time.

Driven
You need to have lots of energy. It isn't enough to be focussed on the customer and give a good, pleasant service. Break times are unrealistic.
It isn't enough to be punctual and reliable, you are expected to give more and more, especially at Christmas and on Bank Holidays.

Warehouse picker
Absolutely awful. Management aren't the cleverest & if you have a brain they'll hate you. Most of them are like the bad guys from the Hobbit. Work is tedious and unless you're young and fit you will end up injured. If you're involved in an accident asda will lie & threaten to make sure you can't sue them. Some people get easy picks and others get all the hard work. Should be illegal.

Great place to work part-time
I worked at ASDA for a period of 10 months alongside my degree and found it to be a very supportive environment, with managers and team leaders who actually listen to you. The workload was fair, but not too much, and there was scope to do different tasks throughout the day, so you don't get bored. Breaks were always given and colleagues were friendly and helpful. Only downside is the lower pay compared to some other supermarkets.
