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.

driver/ pod service crew (Former Employee) – Bideford – 6 May 2018
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

I really enjoyed my time at asda and worked hard to complete all tasks at hand everyone was very friendly and made me feel at ease from the get go and if ever I struggled there was always someone at hand to help me.
Catering Assistant (Former Employee) – Blackburn – 2 May 2018
I worked in the Asda Cafe for 7 years after leaving high school. Although the cafe has now been franchised out when i worked there Asda were my employers. It was literally like a second family. Even the most senior staff genuinely cared about their employees and it was a great place to work. I have many friends that still work there and really love their jobs.
HGV Class 1 Driver (Former Employee) – Falkirk – 2 May 2018
Was a great company to work for when I first started but by the time I left it was really poorly managed by people with no insight into transport and they hadn’t a clue,the answer to everything was to discipline employees at every turn.
Checkout Operator (Former Employee) – Liverpool – 1 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.
Ambient Nights Worker (Former Employee) – South Lanarkshire – 30 April 2018
The work was good and you were kept going the full night. You were taught well and thorough. Management was bad as both night managers were just not nice people, often speaking to you disrespectfully and not giving you much time to learn new things.
Customer Service Desk & Checkout Operator (Former Employee) – Conwy – 30 April 2018
Asda is an awesome place to work. The team is made up of family and friends that support and encourage each other. The bonus scheme is a great incentive to raise the level of customer service. Excellent opportunity for management progression.
friendly work environment, good bonus and discount scheme..
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
