Home Shopping Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Nottingham – 6 October 2018
it is what it is really you deliver shopping to customers from a distribution centre. decent people, pay is ok only £8.50 and no overtime rate but it is all clearly said to you during the interview. Good hours and good staff would go back if i needed to/.
Home Shopping Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh – 22 September 2018
Avoid this job, they treat the drivers like siht, cutting hours at the same time as hiring new drivers. Turnover is high because of the gruelling workload and minimum pay. You have to ask yourself why are there always so many asda driver jobs being advertised??..its because nobody wants to work there. There is plenty of overtime available because as I said before nobody appreciates working as a slave for minimum wage.
George Colleague (Former Employee) – Scotland – 18 September 2018
Loved my colleagues, plenty of opportunity for career progression, salary was quite good. Biggest draw back was being dragged into other departments of the store a lot of the time. And as for communication I guess like most work places it could have been better.
This was a type of place to work where working hours flexible; I learned to be more independent and take on challenges where others would consider. A typical day involved me working independently and within a team at certain times to complete tasks around the store, some days it would be challenging and i would have to organize myself into getting prepared and completing my duties.
The culture of the job role was very eventful, for example meeting many different customers on a day to day basis and helping and supporting them throughout their experience through the store.
As for the management at the workplace it was very formal and everything was notified to every member of staff before any changes where to happen. To be honest the hardest part of the job was not having the chance to move up the ladder and try to reach an higher position as sometimes my attributes where not notified and praised. The most enjoyable part of the job was having the change of new knowledge and working within a fun environment which never stayed the same.
Worker ant (Current Employee) – Scotland Haven, Highland – 10 September 2018
Like any job it can be boring and you are expected to do more with fewer people. If only customers realised that your cheap food is at the expense of the workers. Cuts in staff and pensions.but would they care? Money is good but I would not sign the new contract. Total exploitation. Good for asda not staff. To the previous poster. Why should you get different treatment cause your black?. My manager takes the mickey regardless. Grow up and stop moaning.
Kiosk Assistant (Current Employee) – Cumbernauld, North Lanarkshire – 8 September 2018
ASDA has a great friendly atmosphere to work in, and 90% of the customers are lovely and friendly too. The wages are fair, the break times are brilliant compared to other employers. The staff are well praised and rewarded for delivering excellent customer service. It’s generally a fun, happy place to work. The only downside for me is the terms and conditions associated with the new contract. I wouldn’t have accepted that if I had been made aware of the T&C’s at my job offer.
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Dartford – 6 September 2018
Work hard like machine, pickng tonnes a day. Do overtime and weekends and management will be happy. Don't do what they say or don't question them or you'll get in trouble. Very easy to get disciplined if you have your own opinion.
Team Leader (Current Employee) – Ipswich, Suffolk – 5 September 2018
Very friendly staff, fun place to work. Nice environment, useful tools around me to get the tasks done professionally, always got lots of praise when a job was successfully done, always got given help when asked
Store Colleague (Former Employee) – North East – 29 August 2018
I used to love my job at asda but slowly things changed as new management came in and my personal circumstances changed. management and section leaders dont seem like they are bothered about their staffs welfare. a lot of the time the store is over on wages so to save on costs you are asked a lot to go home early or feeling pressured into leaving early even if you dont want to. always short staffed so your having to do the job of maybe 2 or 3 people for £7 odd an hour.
Salary, discount card and other discount benefits.
poor management, always over on hours, short staffed
