It's become a very depressing workplace
Shop Assistant (Former Employee) – Caerphilly – 12 March 2018
Asda have recently made drastic cuts across all stores and it's clearly showing on it's workforce.
Store managers continue to get paid ridiculous salaries and receive big bonuses for what is a bare minimal input on their behalf, at least that's the case in the store I've worked in.
All new starters are offered a 'NEW' flexible contract paying them £8.50 an hour while long serving employees, some of which have been here for 15-20+years who don't wish to sign the new contract remain at the minimum wage of £7.50.
A good few full timers have recently left due to the company getting rid of ''Full time'' contracts on the home shopping department, where every single employee is being forced into a reduction of hours.
The only progression route within the store is to be a section leader, you will be given a ton of responsibilities and be expected to carry out a managers job for just an extra £1 an hour.
Reduced hours, Terrible pay, Overpaid managers, No Staff Canteen
