Store Assistant (Former Employee) – Leicester – 16 August 2018
it was fun having a work experience at ASDA . i had to start at 9:30 and finish at 4:30. the colleagues there were really nice and friendly and if i wanted any help they would always be there to help. the hardest part of the job was the fast paced working and i really struggled to stay in pace of the work.
Checkout Operator (Current Employee) – Ayr – 5 August 2018
The benefit payout scheme is good, if you have the funds to put into it. There is overtime available, but usually the same people get the overtime hours before you have a chance. The company used to be family orientated, but with changes and management cut downs, the atmosphere went downhill.
Service crew home shopping (Former Employee) – Barking, Greater London – 5 August 2018
I started as a driver delivering home shopping. Knocked that on the head after a couple of days. Never enough time to complete the deliveries and very stressful.Became part of the service crew instead. loading vehicles, click and collect and putting items back on shelf that had been rejected. I'm 54 but fairly fit. Hard work but I enjoy a challenge and enjoyed the work. Pay wasn't great but I'm in a position where I don't have dependents anymore and mortgage free. Middle management were a nightmare always pushing for more effort because of understaffing issues.I was on the NEW contract that takes an hours pay if you work a nine hour shift. Never ever got an hours break..lucky to get 15 minutes. Middle management were always on my case to do more. I worked hard when I was there. Lost half a stone in weight from my efforts, which was one of the only advantages to working there. Worked with some really good colleagues and made some good friends. To summarise, poor management are never going to keep good staff.
Worked alongside some good colleagues
Wages. Management. Overworked. Unpaid breaktimes that one never gets.
I enjoyed working for ASDA and enjoyed the driving and dealing with members of the public. I would deliver to local and rural areas which was something I enjoyed. The wage was minimal and I felt the rate of pay should have been slightly increased. There was always chance for overtime if I wanted this which was always good. Very good to work.
Dot Com Picker (Former Employee) – ASDA LYME DALE WAREHOUSE – 3 August 2018
They will sell you this job like no other and make it sound to good to be true. The pay is good on nights £12:50PH but that soon becomes old. They make up policy and tell you to only go to the toilets on your breaks which is nonsense. The management do not and will not care about you and never will they see only one thing which is a number and they will bully you and deploy all kinds of nasty tactics if you fall short. I have seen staff member's crying because of the brutal, sadistic, inhuman, ruthless, spiteful, depraved, mind set of the management. Talking is NOT allowed and i mean NOT allowed and is frowned upon to the highest degree. You will find management hiding in clothing lanes spying on team members to catch them talking even at the printer waiting to get work sheets or just in passing. They will pull your scrips and nail you to the cross on your so called "downtime" regardless of how small it is unless you have noted down the reason for your few minutes of not clicking that gun they will write you up and into the file it goes. If you are even 1 minute late off your break be ready to face the wrath of a miss conduct write up even if you went to the toilet after which is your human right they DO NOT CARE. I would rather take less pay and be treated like a human and be happy then to work for this kind of establishment where it beats the people down to fit of depression and suppression where you are deprived of the basic of human interaction and people work in FEAR of talking to the unions and other staff members for FEAR of loosing there job. They will also give youmore... a temporary contract for 12 months and when we all went into ASDA warehouse we soon realised the people 12 months before use were all leaving because they did not honour the contract or agreement and will extend it over and over so you will not get to be a "REAL" ASDA employee. the main reason is that you are the new agency workers and they can treat you anyway they want and because you have not been there for 2+ years you cant take them to a tribunal for there barbaric behaviour. there is more but i think you get the picture. WORK HERE AT YOUR OWN RISK!less
Good company to work while I studying. Managers are nice and flexible on Rota and dealing with problems . Lot of benefits from a big company . Because of a lot drivers working, you often can swap a shift with them .

Chef (Former Employee) – Belvedere – 1 August 2018
Manger tought me too cook certain foods and helped me do home bakes, workers there are friendly and easy to speak to. Hardest part of the job is learning how to use the till because got to work at a quick pace to serve the customers.
Terrible staff shortage. Need to load your own van even though your not supposed to. New manager is useless. Poor wage. ~Heavy lifting. Traffic a nightmare. No breaks. Schedule times all over. Sat navs that dont work or charge in vans. No sim cards inside handset to call customers, or 999 if had accident. Dirty vans inside and out. Overloaded vans. Dangerous job with poor pay.
