  • Best thing

    I met some good friends there, very easy to get lots of hours when you need the extra money.

    Worst thing

    So many things. It’s both good and bad for students considering they’re so flexible in the summer for shifts. However, when it comes to seasonal periods such as Christmas or Easter - the times when students are most busy revising for January and May exam periods - they basically tell you that you HAVE to work. I nearly failed exams because my manager had me working 6 days a week and refused to let me take days off for my education. Speaking of management, there is basically no respect for those that work under them. They have their own rules, like they will take 2-3 hour breaks, but if you’re so much as 5 minutes late coming back from a break they kick off. There was a point where they made us runners time the breaks of colleagues. In terms of where they place people in front end, there’s almost no negotiation. If you are young but are susceptible to issues with your feet, they won’t let you sit down even if you get to the point where the pain is so bad that you are crying. They immediately use the excuse of “you’re younger than me and I have no issues with my feet therefore you’re overreacting”. Management also have favourites that they let take longer breaks or basically do no work, give them extra smoke breaks etc. I was personally berated by a colleague in a different department and the store manager told me, to my face, that I was overreacting. They immediately did not even take concerns into account. When I first started I was also forced to divulge extremely personal and sensitive information in regards to my family when an emergency came about and I couldn’t come in. They would not leave me alone until I went into detail with what had happened. When I came back to work, all my colleagues knew what had happened because my manager had told everybody. There’s almost no sense of confidentiality. Even though they seem to be regularly advertising for positions, departments still tend to be lacking in the people that we should have due to poor scheduling. Morning shifts are often given more people than they need whilst evening shifts are left sparse for people, leaving colleagues massively stressed and customers very unhappy with the service they’re getting. Overall it’s genuinely just a terrible job.

  • Best thing

    Most staff are younger which is ideal if you're a student. Hours are okay and you can pick up shifts when needed

    Worst thing

    Management is a shambles. Important information doesn't get passed on between section leaders / management as their communication is terrible. Shop floor is always crammed which is hard to divert the home shopping trolly. You are expected to hit a specific pick rate which cannot be achieved most of the time due to stock availability and the volume of customers in the store. Management are quick to let you know if you're slacking but slow on letting you know when you're excelling

    3.7

    Asda Employee, February 2022

    Easy hours

    Worst thing

    Early starts
    Toxic colleagues
