Retail work

retail work is getting worse. getting rid of staff and cutting hours where they can. stressing employees out to points of nervous breakdowns. no real care shown even when the issa brother came into the store they left within 20 minutes, not interested unless they are making money. good benefits though 10 percent off shopping

Fun place to work (but bad management)

I worked at Asda for years through high school and university, and I really loved the job. The people in my department were great and I made some really good friends, and the work really wasn’t too difficult. I don’t think I was ever asked to do too much, I was trained on several department across the store, and there was lots of overtime available. The hours were also changed around to fit into my schedule.I will say that lots of the managers were absolutely incompetent and didn’t know what was going on on the shop floor, but we basically just got on with the job ourselves.

Alright

Adequate pay and useful for students looking for part time work as they help to balance your life. Good workplace culture and helpful management. Decent temporary role

Great staff bad management

Some managers were decent, some absolutely terrible no compassion or empathy Terrible contract where they can change your days or hours as they please for the sake of business needs

Face paced but easy workplace

Busy at times but quite easy- deliveries, maintaining stock levels etc. Once you get to grips with te job it is easy and the rate of pay is good for what you do.

Great supermarket to work for

Started with Asda at 16 and they kept me on through uni so we’re very flexible. Lots of chances to get promoted onto section leader if you want to do it. Hours are as decent as they can be for a supermarket. Colleagues always friendly but managers can be cliquey.

Pros

Flexibility

Cons

Like any other supermarket

It’s was ok just not enough pay, had fun with other staff and managers where ok depending who you knew. Overall not a bad experience. Shout to the fresh dinners

Poor

It was a poor place to work with poor people and poor managers. All politics if your face fits and if it doesn’t then you’ll be treated like the enemy. Just disgusting practices don’t work here.

Managers

The job itself is simple enough, but because they don’t have enough staff you’re often set unattainable goals, and even if you do somehow manage to accomplish them, it’s still “not good enough”. The managers barely listen to you and treat you more as a number than an actual person. Lots of bullying from co-workers too, but some are nice and make it bearable. Standard pay for a retail job but not enough to make a decent living, so this job is more ideal for younger people. 10% discount is nice. Not enough hours.

Avoid at all costs

Horrible management and horrible co workers.The job is very stressful since they hardly have any equipment. And the atmosphere is just depressing no wonder they are always hiring.

Friendly but fast paced

Great team but horrible management. Minimum wage for a stressful job and managers will look down on you. You will make great friends with your team.

Pros

Discount

Cons

Management

Often feels like a family and success is rewarded but can be boring, demanding and under paid.

Worked my way up from being a colleague to section leader to trading manager. Met so many great people along the way and loved most of my time in Asda however eventually it gets boring and repetitive. Under paid and over expected of.

Pros

flexibility

Cons

pay

Good money

Quite boring, but it's a relaxed place to work at. Managers really don't talk to you much, neither do other employees, if it's something you're looking for

Great people, shocking expectations.

The people you work with are one of the only reasons worth staying. The KRAs are ridiculously high, hard to achieve and cause undue stress on an already stretched workforce. The reduction in the amount of colleagues make your job unnecessarily hard while the bar is set too high for such a low paid position.

Cons

High workload, lack of colleagues, lack of support.
