    I worked at ASDA part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Being a big company allows flexible hours and the possiblity of swapping shifts with other colleagues.
    - Possibility of getting overtime, in own department or in other departments.
    - Great work/life boundaries. Little responsibility means little stress.
    - Low-risk low-reward, good for students and old people; a good part-time job.

    Cons

    - Relatively low on "satisfaction of a job well done"

    If you get too involved it can become stressful due to:
    - Trying but not having the possibility to make a big difference
    - Being pressured to work overtime during busy times.
    Other than low pay, cons are small as long as you draw a clear line between what you are willing to do and what you are not.
