Home Shopper in Totton, Hampshire
Avoid home shopping.
The home shopping department is terrible.Most of the staff have low morale and the amount of work keeps getting higher without any benefits added, most of my co workers were either complaining about something or talking about getting a new job.The supervisors and management defend each other too much, to the point when even if they are in the wrong, they will back each other up, one supervisor disliked me for no reason despite being friendly before they became a supervisor.Most supervisors and management are either overworked like crazy or let the power get to their heads to the point where they'll complain or tell you off for doing something to then only immediately do the exact same thing. There was a very us against them mentality.Most co workers were really nice and I did get along with a lot of people but its very clear later on that this company is so understaffed that they are afraid to fire people, which people pick up on and end up doing a lot of stuff without repercussion.I felt incredibly unappreciated working here, I would do tasks that weren't even in my job requirements just to get the job done but I would either have my flaws pointed out or told that I work barely any hours.It was a constant same cr*p different day working here.

Asda is perfect for a first job. I was 17 when I started and there was always something to do on shifts and the staff, section leader and manager were very kind and understanding during my time there. My usual day consisted of stocking shelves and tidying them, there was always something to do to keep you busy on shift.

Asda is pretty straight run of the mill.
Most things are basic and easy to understand. Though you need to have an ability to adapt to change as Asda adapts to meet customers needs. My particular experience of work life balance was I was made to feel guilty if I asked for a day off short notice to look after a poorly child. Family orientated business??? Constantly busy. But management must understand staff are not robots

Fun place to work!
I worked here for 9 months back in 2014-15 and I loved my job I was in three departments and it was always fun! You also got a 10% staff discount and double discount days which was handy.
