Cashier | East Midlands | 16 Aug 2018
Good company to work for. Working in checkouts/services can be a lot of fun if you're eager to learn and move around.
Having worked for 3 different retail companies since leaving school, alongside studying full-time I would definitely recommend Asda as a company to work for. I work at a large and busy Superstore in the East Midlands and I'm going to give a pretty detailed and honest review. I applied for an 8 hour Sunday Checkout Operator job in November as a Seasonal Colleague (for the Christmas period) but ended up being offered a permanent contract. 'Mainbank' Checkout Operator role: For the first few months as a Checkout Operator my role was solely to sit on a till and serve customers who come through for the entire shift. The till systems that Asda use are very old and literally just a keyboard with a tiny two-line screen, but they work fine and once you've learnt how to use it properly then they are quite efficient. Asda are really big on giving good customer service and they expect 100% effort at all times when it comes to service. Checkout Operators are trained to follow 'Easy, fast and friendly', 'Greet, Help, Thank' and 'Six Ahead' which are Customer Service ways of working. The ways of working are assessed regularly by mystery shoppers and if a colleague fails a mystery shopper audit then the whole store will lose out on the bonus and it usually leads to some kind of disciplinary hearing. Audits can be failed for something as simple as forgetting to give a warm and friendly parting comment to a customer. Asda make no secret of the fact that they are determined to be
ProsLenient with hours, work as much as you like and choose your overtime (pretty much unlimited), fast-paced, good opportunities on checkouts, great colleagues, most customers are lovely
ConsAt times the management is pretty poor and things aren't always well organised, management lack attention to detail and don't fix obvious problems, things are often untidy which is easily fixed but ignored

Security Officer | Leigh | 6 Sept 2019
Boring, Bad Management
I began working for ASDA in December time 2018, busiest period of the year for them & thrown right into the deep end. As Security the job was constant, firedoor runners, pushout attempts, lots of problems with the homeless, the list goes on. I had no issue with the job itself or completing the tasks. The issue is being left on your own for 8 hour shifts and expected to stop and detect any theft occurrences. It's an impossible task do so such a thing working on your own, barely on with another security colleague because managment claim they do not need more, yet when a basket full of JD goes through a firedoor while your dealing with other issues they soon enough come running with 300 questions such as "What have they stole" Who was it" Did you see them" Where did they go" Why didn't you stop them". Again if I wasn't left on my bill all shift and while I'm dealing with other issues things like that wouldn't happen as often but yet they don't see things that way. Management expect you to be sat at the podium for the full 8 hours staring at CCTV despite the training videos stating your only supposed to spend around 35% of your shift looking at CCTV and the rest walking the shop/assisting with other duties. But again impossible to do when there's just 1 of you on. Then shift changes happen all the time, mostly to suit managements needs or section leaders needs. Countless times my shifts where shuffled around last notice despite the fact there supposed to give minimum 3 w

Shop Assistant | Keighley | 5 Aug 2020
Unbelievable experience
I will list what I experienced and you all can judge if its typical of all asda stores . Work is pretty much the same thing every night, replenish the aisle your given and work through all the pallets until the shift is over , if you get stuck with the same aisle repeatedly it can be a hard week , if you get the same aisles for several months you probably will hate it depending where you are placed. Workloads were often longer then the shift but should you not miraculously finish over 9 plus pallets in your 7.5 hour shift then often you have the manager,which ever 1 is in charge that night anyway, ask you to stay behind to finish it or still ask you to stay back , even if you finish all your work because someone else's work is not finished , pretty much every shift you got put on the spot and asked to do an extra hour or an extra day because they was under staffed or had too much work to finish, then when you refuse you seem to have trouble booking your holidays that you have earned, it took me several weeks to get my manager to book my holidays as when I booked my own they was always rejected and he repeatedly told me we will do them later , but later comes and you are told see him tomorrow , then the next week was the same messing about and excuses why he couldn't book them. The holiday booking was one of the most unprofessional aspects I had issue with . Breaks are strange, in an 8 hour shift it was 30 minutes break only , though most seemed to be allowed random smoke
ProsThe night bonus to the hourly rate
ConsNight manager, no training in retail skills, weekend mandatory shifts, substance abuse

Shop Assistant | Oldham | 17 May 2019
Was very good but gone downhill.
Pros - The people I've met whilst working at Asda are some of the most funniest and humble. Had some really good times along with them and I still see them from time to time. - Some of the perks are pretty decent if used on a consistent basis such as the 10percent discount (20percent at certain times of the year) and the Asda Perks website which gives you discount to cinema tickets and days out events etc... - The hours are there if wanted (well the store I was in had hours due to their recruitment policies which I'll explain down in cons later). So basically, I had a contract which was part time but from time to time I used to do full time hours with the added benefit of my holiday allowance being adjusted for the extra hours I have done. - Even though I had a contract, section leader allowed me to be flexible in terms of my working hours. This allowed me to take care of some of my personal stuff that needed my attention. - There are people who have worked at Asda for years and know the colleague hand book inside out and are willing to help you out once you are in trouble. - I have had the pleasure of working under some of the best line managers you could ask for. They would guide and encourage you in order to be best in what you are doing. That encouragement is all that is needed in order to feel appreciated. Some managers have even agreed with what cons I will mention soon as they believe the shop floor workers are getting the short end of the stick

Delivery Driver | Newton Abbot | 25 Sept 2021
If your working in the store it's a great place to work, but anything else its a nightmare.
So I've worked for Asda for close to a decade now, and my experience probably reflects what it is like as an employee that works in the home shopping department. If your instore the job is good, you know you'll be working for a set time, you get your breaks and have a comfortable area to take that break, along with access to facilities should you need them. If your not in store though, for example a delivery driver, none of that applies. If your out on your own the only access you have to facilities entirely depends on what is available to the public, which in most cases means not very much. Management seem to care more about those in store than those actually out doing the deliveries, your often out later than scheduled resulting in either working longer hours or as is the case more often than not, you end up skipping your break to make up the time. The expectations on a delivery driver are ever increasing, I have seen this job change so much in the past 10 years it is vastly different now than it was back then, 10 years ago you had proper support, your vans were pre-loaded ready for your shift, you had proper support in store, vans were rarely out late and you often had enough time for a break. Delivery loads weren't excessive and most people were reasonable in their expectations. For example a block of flats, people would come and help, now they expect you to carry larger deliveries up multiple flights of stairs without so much as a thank you, obviously if the customer

Replenishment Associate | Torquay | 27 Feb 2022
pointless, misery, depressing, sickening, the usual low expectation from a corporate company
maybe not just asda, but when new starter comes into a business, it is hard to make new friends from collegues. your staff collegues are bored, and can do their job very easy, and expect a new starter within zero seconds on the shop floor to know as much as their experience over their 8-10 yrs experience. as you show willing to work faster, harder, rushing, lifting, pushing and doing more, either to keep up, or to show willing, this becomes the new norm. and is expected as well as taking on more duties, all for the same pay. A Manager may see that an area does not need 3 people, when a new starter has been shown to run around like a high speed robot, so the job role is now that of 3 people. Thinking about it logically, 3 people moving things from a to b will move more produce in a work shift, so how can 1 person be expected to match this? Then when you master the act of coming in early, working through breaks, staying over 2 hours a day, the next new starters see you and the exising staff working like this and it becomes the normal culture. It is expected and no one likes a slacker... or a normal person with a real life outside of work. If you show that you have ambition, and would like to move up in the company, everyone you speak to are just the same, you are not special, and you realise they want to move up also. and you get the feeling that it is pointless, it is a lottery, even some very pretty young ladies who could take the pick of the crop of young su

Not great
The driving aspect of the job in itself is great, I was lucky enough that my delivery route was a very pretty area of the country and I got to deliver to some great locations and meet some decent customers. That, however is where the good parts end really. The management at the store I worked at were appalling, there was little to no communication between management and section leaders and between section leaders and drivers. So much so that I was rung up on the day of my driver tech test to be shouted at to why I wasn't there only for me to tell them in return I had not been told of the date. I later found out two different section leaders had both known the details and neither had told me. I saw so many bad managerial practises in the time that I was there that I really don't have space to put them all here. I was regularly given broken/faulty hand held computers to work with which were the primary way of me knowing what drops I had to make and my navigation, I relied upon my own phone most of the time for navigation purposes and to call the customers. I was sent out on multiple occasions on vans which had defects, including an oil leak, cracks on windscreen etc. when I raised these issues with a section leader I was basically told to shut up and go away. The vans that I drove were always filthy, I delivered to primarily rural areas and there was no way of cleaning the vans off when back at the depot, the best they could do was get the store cleaners to go over them w

Delivery Driver | Poole | 17 Aug 2020
Unprofessional and a complete mess
Job was alright at first, then slowly started to realise things that were flat out rediculous. Higher ups with no clue about real working life setting rediculous numbers and making the job insanely stressful and making you work through your breaks. There are no chargers in the vans, so when your palm dies (provided by the company) you have to use your phone... No PHONE MOUNTS... Only 2 of the vans had PHONE MOUNTS. This was completely rediculous and my own phone mount couldn't properly hold the device needed to do my delivery. There response to not providing the bare neccessities was "well people keep breaking them so" - and? Thats not my problem? GO TO THE STORE AND GRAB ONE, YOU ARE A SUPERMARKET. I CANNOT DRIVE SAFELY WHEN THE PALM KEEPS FLYING EVERYWHERE. Section leaders seem to never have any clue of whats going on. I was told I was doing one shift, then to come in and find im doing something completely different. Funny thing about this was, I came in at 7:00am to do my job (Click and Collect), then was told I was driving at 10:30am, and they WONT PAY YOU if you come any earlier than 45 minutes before your VAN LEAVES, and 45 minutes is no where near enough time to get in, clock in, see what you're doing and load and leave. Not enough time. So I had come in, 3 and a half hours early, when i was told to come in at this time, only to not be paid until 9:45. I quit after this, as this was not the first time they have completely messed up my shifts. There is no work lif

Delivery Driver | Rochdale | 4 Mar 2020
Utterly clueless
The job itself was quite fun, you get the usual things you'd expect in a role like this such as people who live in hard to find houses who simply won't use the delivery notes options to let the drivers know ( "ooh- everybody struggles to find our house!" ) , people who order their shopping for a specific hour then go out at that time and can't understand why you won't wait for them ( oh yes- we know your "I'll just be 5 minutes" is more often than not the best part of half an hour ), and my personal favourite- the people who order, aren't in and then expect you to deliver to a different address ( "What do you mean it's 40 minutes out of your way- I always see your vans around here! " ). Whilst that's a bit annoying overall the good far outweighed the bad, I met some really great people and had some very interesting conversations whilst delivering and the other drivers I worked with were brilliant guys you could have a good laugh with so on that basis I'd say it was a fairly ok job. What really ruined it was the running of the department. Much has been said in recent times regarding the company and it's contract changes. Whilst workers are now expected to be flexible it would appear that somewhere along the line something got lost in translation and "flexible" morphed into " go out of your way to make the job as unnecessarily annoying as you possibly can". If you get asked to cover a shift make sure you tell them you can do that shift only- because what they won't tell

Delivery Driver | Harrogate | 21 Oct 2021
Fairly routine, but every shift is different
A typical working day for me starts at 7am, or 2pm for the evening shift, finishing anywhere between 2 - 3 for AM, and 8 - 10 for PM. The morning shifts typically require more waiting around, as it isn't unusual to arrive to find that your load isn't ready to go out yet. This will likely differ from store to store, however some customers time slots may require you to wait upwards of 1 - 2 hours a time before you go to them. You are expected to load your own van; sometimes other drivers will help you wheel your load out, which comes on multiple platforms, other times you'll be going back and forth yourself - This can sometimes be stressful when you're pressed for time. Training is predominantly driver led, meaning the quality will vary depending on who you're paired with. Each driver will have their own methods, sometimes cutting corners and setting a bad example. You're expected to shadow on one shift, with the remaining three being you in the drivers seat. If you're like me, and have never driven anything larger than a car, it's quite easy to get used to the size of the vehicles. They're all automatic and have a rear camera which can help out a lot. The job in hand is easy enough once you're out on the road. I'm fortunate to live in an area where a lot of my routes feature scenic views, sometimes delivering to wealthy houses up to 20 miles away, other times being in the heart of towns only driving short distances between drops. If you're on time, things will go withou
ProsScenic routes, left to own devices, nice customers generally.
ConsLate finishes if you're on night shift, addresses can sometimes be hard to find, little recognition for being a good employee.

Worked at Asda Dagenham on nights, 3 nights a week, I only lasted 3 weeks of the 3 months contract, I resigned. The amount, toughness and stress of the work is unbearable, it was the worst job I have ever done in my life, it was physically and mentally exhausting. I couldn't believe to see some of my colleagues do it six or seven days a week. I didn't have any problems with the managers, they were great, the pay was good, but the job wasn't for me.

What is the interview process like at ASDA?
Asked 16 Mar 2017
An absolute shambles! I applied online completing a multiple-choice questionnaire. A few days later, I received a call telling me to attend a group interview at Asda Oadby, Leicester. I arrived at the store and waited around with the other applicants. We were eventually met by an Asda worker and took to an aisle where we were told to put stock out. Everyone still had their coats on and those who had handbags had to leave them on the floor as they filled the shelves. About three safety knives were handed out to open the boxes; however, there were eight people in the group. After twenty minutes of this, we were took upstairs to an office where our passports were photocopied and that was it. Nobody in the group was asked any questions whatsoever! Just put stock out and photocopy our passports! Those who worked in the store were totally unprepared to receive the job applicants!

Really short and easy ‘interview’ over the phone, only one or two questions asked, then taken in for induction a few days later, Whole process took less than a week.
