    I have been working at ASDA part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have worked here for 6 years, I applied when I was 16 and have worked here part time throughout my education. They are always more than helpful giving study leave to students with exams and a great HR team

    Cons

    Not a lot of room to develop in the company, I have never seen anyone complete a development programme in my 6 years despite it being what they pride themselves in

    Advice to Management

    Ensure section leaders are trained efficiently with Walmart one holiday self service. It is frustrating when you are waiting 2/3 weeks for a response
