    I worked at ASDA part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very accommodating: I had a part time (16h/week) contract, but was offered shift cover to make up more hours. I also worked with a woman who could only do part time and she was not pressured to do more. Keeps you busy running around, and free coffee/tea even food sometimes in the break room. Other colleagues made sure you got our breaks. Were accommodating with holidays.

    Cons

    A bit hectic - sometimes got called to cover shifts with a few hour's notice (though I was welcome to refuse). The work schedule changed each week and wasn't always up to date so I didn't know when I was working unless I found a supervisor to ask. Understaffing was an issue when a trainee manager came in. Left us understaffed at the end of the day or with trainee staff doing supervisor roles.

    I have been working at ASDA part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Always can talk with other colleagues and can have fun with them having a laugh etc while working, lifts the spirit and makes you feel welcome by your fellow colleagues. Always something to do and you tend to be busy Learn a lot of new skills etc

    Cons

    Lack of appreciation most of the time. Management doesn't pay attention to the good and great things you do, but the bad times and not so great times. Never really rewarded for your hard work, unless you are lucky to have great management in your store who put their colleagues at the forefront of their minds. Lots of hard work with little reward. Can be frustrating when you know you work hard but management always pick up on little petty things without looking at the bigger picture of what you have achieved.
