ASDA Stores Reviews
Newest Review: ... checkout person to be totally focused on SPEED of service, and forget the American-hyped bullshit. I listened to several distressed staff talking about this in a pub, and NONE of them had a copy of their Employment Contract, and the Disciplinary Procedures were not FREELY available; they had to be personally ASKED FOR, presumably so that the Bullying Managers can make a record of WHO is asking to be aware of their FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS. It is clear that ASDA's staff feel very intimidated so I did this Google Search just out of curiosity - quite a disgraceful attitude towards HR and people's feelings.... more

ASDA will tell you it's all about work life balance and taking care of there staff but it's all just talk. The bottom line and business needs are the only things that matter. The harder you work, the more they try to bully you or take advantage of you. Rubbish company to work for.

ASDA's latest pressure tactic on its staff (and its unfortunate customers!) is to threaten staff with Disciplinary Action if they do not MAKE conversation with the customer while they are being checked out. ASDA does lots of spot checks and pays for 'mystery shops' to enforce the pressure! This is regardless of whether there may be a queue behind the customer, because the staff are also expected to make conversation WITHOUT extra delays and WITHOUT making mistakes. Do ASDA think their customers are so sad that they want to chat to checkout staff they don't know from adam!? Everyone I know just wants the checkout person to be totally focused on SPEED ...

I was made redundant from a Sales job after 15 years and at my age (then 58) had put enough money away to retire. I did in fact retire for a little while but was so fed up of doing nothing that I decided to apply for a job at Asda on their Home Shopping Department as a delivery driver, not for financial reasons although the money helps, it was more for something to fill my time. I have now been with them for 18 months and this is my experience. After an initial "try the job out to see if you like it" where you go out with an existing driver during daylight hours.

I have worked for asda for almost a year and about 3 months ago the manager brought in some yellow gillets and i was told i had to wear one because i work on self scan. We havent been provided with one each, we have to share, they are grubby and feel horrible on. Does anyone know if it is compulsory to wear one, i have been threatened with a disciplinary if i dont wear it.

We do not work at Asda but personally know someone who did until they they were dismissed for an one off unfortunate incident which was out of character and was first incident - under personal distress. No compassion shown, should have been a written warning. People who are supporting this ex employee believe that Asda have gone over the top. Furthermore this employee HAD an excellent work record until now and the dismissal could not have come at such a bad time, EVEN the line manager knew about the distress this couple were experiencing. Well done Asda - we won't be shopping there anymore !!!!!!
