“Retail Therapy”

published 14/04/2009

Great colleagues, great discount

lack of communication betwewen management, can be ...

I've been working at ASDA's store 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. A Brief History Asda was the brain child or butchers and dairy farmers from Yorkshire wh's...

How many people can imagine themselves saying 'I work in a supermarket, and I love it!!!'? No, I couldn't either, but strangely 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...

“Do You Fancy A Workout?”

published 08/11/2005

Flexible employers. Varied jobs on offer.

Bright green uniform!

About five years ago I was looking for a job which would fit into my family. I didn't really need to work at the time, but thought it would be nice to have some of my 'own' money and a sense of worth. I was really only able to work evenings when my children's father was at home and this led me to...

“Happy to help!”

published 27/12/2008

10% discount, cheap staff grub

Shoddy managers, bad pay, useless sick pay system

Me and my husband are writing this together, seeing as he works for them, but let me tell you, the effects the job has on my husband effects me to! Asda is a well known supermarket, it provides all sorts of stuff, food, clothes, dvds, etc. They are practically everywhere around the country and...

Great social life and people

No managment or people skills

I, like many people who work at Asda, was a lowly student who needed a few extra quid during holidays and at weekends, little did I know I was signing on to be part of a Nazi-esque regime! I left just over two years ago so some of the stuff may be a little out of date, and some may only apply to...

Discount and an insight to latest trends

It's tiring and the grief you get off customers

George at ASDA - full extensive review im afraid! # George? I currently work for a new movement project in supermarkets. The project was to open a stand alone store that is part of ASDA but not a supermarket. The store for which I work is a clothing store and so far ASDA's project of opening a...

A job's a job

Mind-numbingly boring!

Okay so I am a student studying in Newcastle, and I decided to find a job to earn some money, so I could enjoy the luxury of eating once again. Living about half an hour out of the city centre, there wasn't that much around, except for a few supermarkets. I decided to try asda. I went in and got...

Do you here you teenagers saying.... " I don't want to work in a retailers on checkouts!!" I said it too!! I have worked for a few retailers, Tescos and Sainsbury's included over the past ten years while being at sixth form school and college. At both Tescos and Sainsburys I worked on the...

Uniform , too many chiefs

I've read a few reviews about Asda and can say that I enjoyed them. I started at Asda 31/2 yrs ago. Firstly the interview was like no other I've had before . The interviewers made you feel very at ease . Not like some companies when you feel like a lamb to the slaughter . They're a bit like...

I applied for a few supermarkets in my local area and finally got a job in Asda, I originally wanted to work in the administration department as that was the closest to my last employment but was put on the Deli counter doing the evening shift.

“Re: Asda”

published 21/02/2007

Well I agree with the information in the review relating to working at Asda, WHY..??? I am a colleague who started as a seasonal employee, showing what I was made of my line manager bent over backwards in her attempt to find me a full time contract, though this never happened. I turned to a...

Well, I have now been working for Asda for just over 6 months and I hate every single second. Like a lot of people, I had been out of work for a while (I had relocated from London) and was really excited when I got the call saying that I had been selected for an Asda Magic session. Little did I...

As an employee of an Asda Home Delivery dept in the UK - I thought best to give the disgruntled reviewers as best an explanation as possible for the problems that they have experienced whilst using the service. Because I can understand how when the service and overall experience of Asda home...
