Average job, salary and actual work isn't fantastic
Process Colleague (Current Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 5 December 2016
I'm responsible for finding items that are about to go out of date on the shop floor and marking them down using a telxon gun. I've also been trained as a cashier.
I've learned how to operate a till, use a telxon gun, and how to best help concerned customers (listen to their needs carefully, and clearly provide information when sorting out the problem)
Management are pretty distant. They get on with their things, I get on with mine. My co-workers are quite friendly and were happy to help when I unsure during training.
The most difficult part of the job is making sure it's completed on time. Since I can't control how many items are going out of date on a certain day, some days have a huge number of items from many departments going out of date. I have to make sure that I work quickly and accurately on those days so I finish my work before I'm due to go. I also have to make sure the volume of work I have to do doesn't stop me from being approachable and eager to help customers.
The actual work I do isn't very difficult. I would prefer something more challenging.
The most enjoyable part of my job is helping customers. Successfully helping grateful customers is very satisfying. I've also made a few friends while working at ASDA, so spending my breaks with them is also quite enjoyable.
