What is overtime like at ASDA?

Pros

Some great colleagues and a decent job for a student looking to earn some extra money

Cons

There is a massive divide between senior managers and everyone else. You can be called into work at very short notice and don't get appreciated for doing so. They tend to offer 1 day a week contracts almost forcing you to work overtime but because your contracted hours are below a certain threshold, you don't qualify for benefits such as pension scheme

Advice to Management

Need to be more friendly and approachable to staff and need to show more appreciation to hard workers who cover a lot of extra shifts.
