Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Leeds, West Yorkshire – 10 January 2018
I loved working for asda but the past few years i believe it's not the same place it was to work for. They don't seen bothered about there staff and family life anymore and are cutting back on alot of hours. They still expect the same amount of work from alot less staff

General Assistant (Former Employee) – Leeds, West Yorkshire – 28 November 2017
asda was a very good company and in my opinion one of the best places i have worked. There wasnt much room to work my way up the ladder as the had got rid of a lot of section leaders and just wanted team leaders to the job for the same money they was on but with more responsibility.
Acceptance Testing (Current Employee) – Leeds – 15 November 2017
Asda is a good place to work. People are very nice and the working environment is chilled. Management is overall good. From Asda I have learned how to be professionalist and to take everyday tasks seriously
Counters Assistant (Current Employee) – Leeds – 8 November 2017
Counters are always heavily understaffed which overworks the current people working there. The hours are long hard and can sometimes be very boring when there's nothing to be done. Other times it can go from quiet to extremely busy in under 5 minutes.
HRSS (Former Employee) – Leeds, West Yorkshire – 17 October 2017
If someone in charge doesn't like you, they will find a way to get rid of you, even if you are good at your job. There are some really nice people there and the job is good but the environment is let down by office politics. Integrity is a big part of Asda values but if you show any in HRSS it will conflict with certain egos, they will not like that and you can kiss permanent employment there goodbye. They won't listen to suggestions or concerns and in fact if you voice an opinion they will tell you that you are too negative, despite the negativity coming from some members in charge who constantly put down their team.
Good job if all you want to do is turn up, stay silent and don't show any sign of wanting to progress yourself and the workplace, but it gets annoying with team leaders expecting things from you when they don't even know how to do it themselves and how long things actually take. Most of the staff are lovely but a lot are stressed and seem to have a lot of complaints but feel like nothing will be done if anything is suggested.
Fast paced environment, yet a fun place which recognises and grows talent
Activity Planning Manager (Former Employee) – Leeds City Centre, West Yorkshire – 13 September 2017
A very customer driven organisation which considering it's size is very agile adapting to the market place It is a very open and honest culture where all colleagues are respected & valued. Management empower individuals to be accountable to their part of the business encouraging innovation which either takes costs out of the business or sets Asda apart from the competition. Career progression is good and there are opportunities like I did where you are able to move to different roles to understand different elements of the business.
The culture at Asda is fantastic, it's great to work with like minded, enthusiastic colleagues. The business is currently in a period of change which is making proactive planning and strategy forming very difficult
