    It was a good seasonal job during uni, but I was definitely just a number and not a valued member of the team.

    I worked at ASDA part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The times flies very quickly during shifts. You are often working with the same people every week so can build up friendships.

    Cons

    Due to the large staff numbers, management did not know anybody's name even after working there for over 3 months. Very difficult to find someone to ask for time off etc.
