    Former Employee - Chilled Colleague in East Retford, England

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at ASDA part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Steady money for simple work. You don't really need to think about much, if you can read and understand how numbers work there is little on the shop floor to challenge you. In my store at least, most of the staff were friendly, and look out for each other. Most managers are also completely reasonable: they understand that they have to work with their subordinates and cannot rule by fear. Plenty of jokes and laughs when appropriate, genuinely a big family culture

    Cons

    Dealing with moronic co-workers, however this is usually short lived. As stated above, most people are nice enough, but the turnover rate of new staff is incredibly high primarily due to their own stupidity: theft, turning in drunk, late, not at all, lying about things that can very easily be checked. The potential pitfall here is that if a manager or established member of staff takes a dislike to you early on it can spell the end- though if you are there long enough and make an acceptable impression you are likely in a job for as long as you want it. The new contract is definitely worse than the one I was on, but the provisions in it seemingly were not exploited by management whilst I was there - although I never signed. This is part of a larger trend of reduced benefits which began before my time- one long standing coworker had stock in Walmart worth a substantial amount, which was gifted to them upon completing their probationary period!
