Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Portsmouth – 20 May 2018
Asda could be a good place to work for depending on your manager. Some management understood that colleagues working on minimum wage were keeping the company running, however some treated you like dirt.
Asda - Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Lakeside Retail Park, Thurrock RM20 3LP – 20 May 2018
The things that I learned from working at Asda living is that all the hard work that the people have to go through to make sure everything to nice and tidy for the customer and some of there jobs isn't fun at all I also enjoyed working at Asda living as the customers are all nice and friendly and they are also smiling even when they hacertainly a bad day then see to know how to cheer you up.
A typical day at asda is full of colleagues and managers who do not care about the job at hand, easy and simple tasks are left undone with leads to the cause of larger and more time consuming jobs that could have been avoided. A management team is in place which is completely ignorant in there proceedings and only work when a regional manager or someone of purpose is visiting the store. Favoritism is clear throughout the work place which leads to a very poor and depressing environment
Sales assistant (Former Employee) – Colchester – 29 April 2018
I worked at asda Colchester for a while and the main store colleges are very nice but the management and some of the runners/section leader think they are better than you. Getting time off on holiday is difficult as you have to book most of your holiday nearly a year in advance and God help you if you are ill as you can be dead on your feet and they will still make you stay or come in. If your a very healthy person with no social life and love being bossed around this is for you if not I would highly recommend going somewhere else.
Management, pay is dreadful, not good for holiday or illness
I have loved working with asda for the last year and a half, along side working with them i been able gain management qualification which i could've done to a higher level if i stayed with the company. Management is good for the most part but communication could be improved. Colleagues are friendly and welcoming and customers are usually friendly too. Unfortunately with the new system the ambient hours tend to be either 10-5pm or 5-10pm and full time hours arent available unless you're a section leader or a manager. Rate of pay is great just a shame i couldn't get the hours i needed
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Wales – 23 April 2018
Worked here for around 6 months, throughly enjoyed.. good set shifts and hours, overtime avaible if needed and wanted. Management not very Good, they are not easy to go and speak to and sometimes treat you like dirt. I ended up falling and damaging my back because of wrong training which I had to leave due to not being able to work, but overall pay is Good, work load is not to Hard, friendly people (I was in th3 great department) breaks are good as you get to choose when you go for one. Overall good job.

1. Order picking, stock replenishment, database correction, and pricing. 2. Ensure the department clean and tidy. 3. Dealing with customer quires. Till processes and cash handling - (Challenge 25) 4. Markdowns process. Date code checks, dealing with waste disposal uplift.
Terrible place to work no regard for members of staff, check-out assistant made to work like robots cannot move or talk, only allowed to talk to customers whilst having to constantly look happy. No career prospects and would not advise anyone to work here. I will never step foot in Aintree (North Korea) store again. DO NOT turn round whilst on your till, DO NOT take a step away from your till and whatever you do, DO NOT go to the toilet without ringing up and asking. Scary when I think back!

Ensuring department is maintained to a suitable standard and ensuring the warehouse stock has been worked and all items have been fed away to their appropriate area.good team

Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Ayr – 20 March 2018
Very busy Shift in Asda , Customer friendly focused , Big family team . Learned many roles within the company looking to further my career . Most hardest part of the job would probably be the late finishes and the most enjoyable part is the meeting of new people , customers and colleagues make your day go in better.
working on a checkout interacting and scanning in shopping for customers. I worked on customer service (returns) and cigarette counter. The other staff that work there are they only reason to work there, long hours, low pay, bad management
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Farnborough – 3 March 2018
Nice workplace. Very lively, productive and great place to learn about sales and customer assistance. Great helpful team. The hardest part of the job needs to be continuous on toes as customers need parcels from Click and Collect quickly when they are on run from office to home or otherwise. Providing service for returns and providing and convincing customers on substitute items to the ordered is another challenging task to satisfy customers needs.Rush hour time management is a big challenging task. Keeping annoyed customer calm and making him happy at the end is very tough part of the job. Talking to various people, knowing them personally after few visits, and receiving great smiles of satisfaction on their face is most enjoyable part of the job.
