"...in Radcliffe since October 2007. ASDA really tends to big itself up as great employer so I thought I'd write a review on working there and you can make your own minds up.

"...I do. I came to asda after my maternity leave ended, and I decided to leave my old job. My reason for leaving was slightly unusual. One of the regular customers of the bakery where I used to work was a very handsome doctor.

"...worked. Applying: To get a job at asda you need to fill in an application form - this is available from the personnel department via writing, or from the customer services desk.

Plus I think you get a point for filling out your name and address correctly. And best of all it is multiple ..." Read review
