Checkout Operator (Former Employee) – Liverpool – 1 May 2018
You're given guaranteed hours which is great since then you know exactly how much you're receiving when paid. Paid monthly so have to be able to organize and spread your money over a few weeks. Staff were lovely and nice but working on tills is sometimes boring and difficult during peak times, e.g. Christmas.
Customer Service Desk & Checkout Operator (Former Employee) – Conwy – 30 April 2018
Asda is an awesome place to work. The team is made up of family and friends that support and encourage each other. The bonus scheme is a great incentive to raise the level of customer service. Excellent opportunity for management progression.
friendly work environment, good bonus and discount scheme..

No support once you start.management hardly every there.section leaders always finish early.and if your working late you are in charge of everything.never enough staff.u had 4 customer service tills.sometimes struggling for 1 colleague to be there.tills were dirty and toilets were always dirty as cleaners finished early .That's customer and staff toilets. Short breaks and always doing overtime.couldnt talk to your colleagues as being told u weren't doung your job if you talked to them .unless it near retirement and need a little part timer with basic wage or a students first job then it is such a let down. If any other dept needs you they put u anywhere forget what your job role is.
Nice colleaques, staff discount days.
Short break.poor managers, no support when during your shift.

In Asda i learnt how to met nd greet in the correct mannor, i also learnt how to cash handle and till control, checking thriugg shopping, assisting customers enquiries and helping to bag up their shopping and also keeping my check out area clean and tiday. The easiest part if the job was cash handling.
Checkout Operator (Former Employee) – Mitcham, Greater London – 15 April 2018
A very interesting place to work at, as I have learnt many skills from Asda. for example: keeping up-to-date with time and people, working within a team, handling different personalities within the work place, working under pressure and always keeping a smile on the face as I had the opportunity to work at a check-out operator.
It can be an okay place to work if you are not stuck on terrible hours. Never use to mind having to work weekends but I currently work Fridays and Saturdays and that is EVERY week unless I can get a day off which is virtually impossible on a Saturday. My hours are such that I can't do anything socially on those days and my social life has been severely affected. I can appreciate the requirement of working weekends but nobody really wants to work Saturdays and I feel that contracts should allow at least one Saturday off a month which I was promised when I joined Asda but it never happened.
As far as the job is concerned there are the usual challenges. The main one being lack of staff. I work on the checkouts and they have refurbished most of the store apart from the checkouts. The checkouts look like they belong in the stone age and hardly anything works. It is frankly quite embarrassing sometimes.
Communication needs to be more organised in relating important information to checkout operators. The staff are generally nice people to work with, no problems with any of my colleagues.
I really enjoyed my time at ASDA the people I worked with have become some close friends and the enjoyable work environment made going to work not a chore. Gained many skills like time and people management and greatly improved my customer service abilities.
Enjoyable and predictable workload, helped me to develop interpersonal skills and overall confidence in my work. Approachable, helpful and friendly management and a enjoyable workplace culture which whilst sometimes challenging was extremely rewarding.
Checkout Operator (Former Employee) – Shipley – 6 February 2018
I have been working at Asda for a very long time, and in all my years of experience a typical day for me was, doing an 8 hour shift working on checkouts, serving customers, helping them pack their shopping, filling the gap with a chat and ending with a friendly parting comment. I learn't that having excellent customer service skills was a key part of the organisations work ethics, and this is what I learn't working at Asda along with many other things such as: dealing with difficult customers, problem solving, supervising and first aid. Management was organised in a structured manner, they were in close contact with several supervisors including me to go on shop floor to help them with: looking after different departments, making sure all collegues were carrying out their duties and that they were given their breaks etc. The culture was that of a warm and friendly nature, everybody was happy and had a smile on their face. Having a drunk customer verbally abuse you is never a nice thing and for me personally I found that a hard part of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job was to bring joy and happiness to customers after serving them
delicious food in the cafeteria, good customers, friendly collegues.
