Working on checkout- what else can you say about it? It was very basic pay and hours were not too bad. Difficult to get holidays approved but the job was easy going.

Lack of leadership/management
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Midlothian East18 May 2018
Met some of the best people who will remain friends for life, however the management were atrocious, delegated every aspect of their jobs to underpaid colleagues. Very patronising, lazy, and disorganised, left you on your own with no support.
Pros
Great colleagues, flexible hours, staff canteen, staff discount card.
Cons
Management, salary

Changing with the times
Retail (Former Employee) –  Widnes, Cheshire13 May 2018
Worked for Asda for 15 years! Unfortunately had to leave due to a reduction to my hours. Easy place to work wide verity of starting and finishing times. If you’ve been offered a contract, read your contract thoroughly!!!! I can’t stress this enough. make sure you fully understand it. The new contracts they’ve introduced are a bit unfair in regards to bank holidays and been flexible. Progression within ASDA Is decent you can make section leader really fast. Unfortunately to progress past section leader takes a lot of patience can seem like a dead end to some! There’s a lot of changes happening within Asda some good some bad. This is all part of changing with the time and staying relevant. Good luck with your interviews and thanks for reading.
Pros
Discount Card, Bonus, double discount days
Cons
Rare full time contracts, working every bank holiday, compulsory flexible contract

customer focussed environment
Services Assistant (Current Employee) –  Great Yarmouth10 May 2018
Asda's primary focus is it's customers this is important to achieving success and Asda continue to obtain good work ethics when it comes to it's customers.

benefits are provided for colleagues; 10% off shopping across selected items as well as many other benefits and discounts through other companies such as Frankie And Benny's.

colleagues are friendly and we all work well as a team to make shifts fun for all, customer service is improved if colleagues are in a good mood on shift.

customers can test your patience, it is important to uphold a professional manor in all situations when necessary even when dealing with the most difficult of customers.

I have learned to be more confident when dealing with different people, consider some people may need more help than others whether it be with finding a product or a colleague in training it is important none are patronised or discriminated under any circumstances.

ASDA has provided me with execellent customer service skills to help increase sales and allow customers to leave with a positive opinion about the store/company

This isn't my chosen career however has given me skills I can apply to a job role within my chosen career.
Pros
10% discount off shopping
Cons
unreliable overtime

just a number
Section Leader/ Duty Manager (Current Employee) –  Oldham10 May 2018
up until the last few CEOs the job was great well looked after felt like you belong.
in the last 3 years...
viewed as disposable.
most benefits removed.
no matter how much you do its never enough.
continuously cut hours so have to hope your staff that's left will do extra hours and push them to breaking point.
Security is being removed so expect even more threatening customers and thieves.
Pros
10% discount

Regional Loss Prevention Manager (3 years) (Former Employee) –  Midland10 May 2018
Every year job security is under threat. Remuneration package is ok if you take advantage of it. Can be hard to get things done with multiple layers to get through and lots of sign off. Competing interests do not work well together
Pros
Save as your earn shares
Cons
Job security

Personal Shopper (Former Employee) –  Doncaster, South Yorkshire10 May 2018
Worked on personal shopping side of Asda which includes 4/5am starts. They didn’t give any training prior to starting, gave conditions which are not included within our contract of which the consequences were unemployment, were forbidden from talking otherwise we’d be disaplined and sent home from work. Very overbearing without much concern for the staff themselves. Happy to no longer work here.
Pros
Staff benefits after 3 months+ of service
Cons
Overbearing and little concern for staff

the job is good, but the management make it hard work. driving within the time limits means either you have to speed or take short cuts. very rare to get your allocated breaks and van break down all the time

lovely and nice
Checkout Operator (Former Employee) –  Liverpool1 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.
Pros
nice and easy and nice staff
Cons
bit boring

Management think they are better than you
Sales assistant (Former Employee) –  Colchester29 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.
Pros
Discount card
Cons
Management, pay is dreadful, not good for holiday or illness
