    Asda Employee, December 2021

  • Best thing

    In the past it was the ethos and the training and the respect you recieved

    Worst thing

    The roles and benefits being taken away, contract 6 took away paid breaks and bank holidays. Closing the fresh bakery lost me my position of a skilled baker with years of experience.


    Asda Employee, July 2021

  • Best thing

    Some of the colleagues and some of the customers

    Worst thing

    There is an element of bullying from certain colleagues, plus some folk take additional breaks they are not entitled to
