Switchboard Operator (Former Employee) – Leeds – 10 July 2018
ASDA Switchboard is a very relaxed, straightforward workplace full of helpful people and a kind atmosphere. The management understands what the employees need and works well to talk between their departments to provide release and entertainment for their people.

Ex-driver (Current Employee) – Morley leeds – 3 April 2018
It was a great place to work up until 3yrs ago then all the cut backs started now the management are under pressure and this gets put onto all the colleagues made to work under pressure constantly drivers get the brunt of all this and they are the forefront for asda the face of asda and the first point of contact for asda the company put these guys and gals under to much pressure to succeed in making deliveries on time when sometimes it is unachievable.
Not fun at all to work at asda anymore, made to do a 3 man job on your own and min night pay. Management will not take feedback and will impose their way even though it is n0t correct. Follow asda policies to suit them but ignore others.
secure job, not much time off, management expect a lot from collegues
ambient collegue (Current Employee) – Leeds, West Yorkshire – 20 February 2018
its a decent job with a decent wage £8.50 per hour but the flexible contract means that you may be required to work on your days off with 3 chances to turn down overtime. you may also be required to cover shifts on other departments on your contracted days off.
the management expect a lot from their colleges underneath them with most stores being understaffed and only just managing to cope with pressure at peak times, this twinned with adding "caps" onto departments meaning that certain departments in store have to cut hours to save money will add more pressure to colleagues.
a typical day at work on my department (Ambient grocery on a 10 hour shift would clude 1 hour of facing up from 12:00-13:00, stock replenishment until 15:00 , another hour of facing up, finish replenishment for 7 then begin picking the stock room until 21:00 then finish at 22:00.
in between helping customers, opperating tills at peak times to avoid queues, this can be quite difficuilt when understaffed, especially when your manager/ section leader is adding to your jobslist.
20% discount, £8.50 per hour, lots of opportunity for overtime
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
