    I worked at ASDA part-time

    Pros

    Colleagues - Some great people to work with
    Career Break - Max 1 year available to staff

    Cons

    Management - Very few managers seem to genuinely care about their staff
    Salary - Just a bit higher than minimum wage
    Your told to call everyone a colleague even the managers saying that everyone is equal but the managers don't seem to know this

    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 have been working at ASDA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Equal opportunities for all, flexibility, good support for existing employees with mental or physical disabilities, a choice of different things to do or career objectives, colleague benefits

    Cons

    New flexible contract 6 terms do not work for everyone as it's hard to plan life around work and some being made to work all hours most days, poor standards on shop floor aggravate customers and colleagues in other depts taking the rap for it, self service tills hard to manage and keep failing. Poor communication. Also stand up for your rights as a worker with regards to your health and wellbeing as this can sometimes be compromised

    Advice to Management

    Listen, understand and communicate. Apart from that you're not doing bad considering
