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

    Pros

    Whilst working at ASDA I felt management was helpful and flexible. Any issues with exams or extra time for coursework were never a problem. Company was very understanding.

    Cons

    There seemed to be favouritism between managers and colleagues. I'm sure it's not an issue in every store, but unfortunately it was apparent where I worked.

    Pros

    Flexibility
    Great culture
    Latest technology projects
    Discount
    Cash allowance

    Overall a very good place to work with interesting things happening all the time.

    Cons

    A lot of governance, processes. Very difficult to get things done due to needing sign offs and wavers for everything.

    Advice to Management

    Review the processes and look for improvements. We could be a lot better in what we do if we could adapt quicker and make quicker decisions without the burden of constant approvals and sign offs.
