    I worked at ASDA part-time (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.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure there is enough staffing and make sure shift timetables are put out at least 2 weeks in advance.

    I worked at ASDA part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Whilst working at ASDA I felt management was helpful and flexible. Any issues with exams or extra time for coursework were never a problem. Company was very understanding.

    Cons

    There seemed to be favouritism between managers and colleagues. I'm sure it's not an issue in every store, but unfortunately it was apparent where I worked.
