What people say about pay at Asda

  • 3.1/10

    Best thing

    Team

    Worst thing

    Customers, not enough staff, and low pay
    Checkout operator, September 2020
  • 4.7/10

    Best thing

    Driving, hands off management after probationary period.

    Worst thing

    Inflexible and unreliable computerised system and equipment being frustrating to use, or obstructive to performing the task in hand. Said equipment not being correctly set up, and staff not being proficient in its use causing more obstruction. The drivers taking up the slack for poor performance in other departments. Unpaid breaks add insult to injury on top of poor rate of pay in the first place. Statistics over quality service, and no incentive for drivers who are genuinely responsible/don't damage vehicles/are team players.

    Shop assistant, December 2019
  • 2.8/10

    Best thing

    They pay , the hours.

    Worst thing

    No rotas, shifts changed and you are forced to do them, no communication, management force you in to things and use your contract against you, colleagues are disrespected, colleagues are fixed to tight break schedules and are punished if a few minutes over whereas managers and section leaders take 2 hours worth of breaks a day on a 9 hour shift, colleagues can't sit at the same table as section leaders and managers as hierarchy extends to the lunch room, colleagues have been physically and sexually abused and it has been swept under the rug for years... I could go on.

    Best thing

    The hours I work fits in with family life

    Worst thing

    A lot of risk for not great pay
    Delivery driver, July 2020
  • 8.1/10

    Best thing

    Colleagues, most of the management are nice, hourly pay is good for my age, fits well around university, set shifts so guaranteed hours

    Worst thing

    Some section leaders and management talk down to colleagues in a condescending manner, unpaid breaks, set shifts can also be bad for example I’m contracted to a 5-10 Tuesday, 5-10 Friday and 1-10 Sunday so if plans are ever made for this day I always have to use holidays on them or ask another colleague if they will switch
