Working at Asda
Working here is great fun and we have a real family atmosphere. However we also work hard to make sure our customers always leave us smiling and that they get everything they want when they visit us. This can often be physically tiring and you’ll be on your feet throughout most shifts. The work in most departments does involve some heavy lifting – even on the checkouts. It’s cold in the freezers as you’d expect and also very hot in the bakeries! That’s why we came up with our ‘Have-a-Go’ approach, which aims to let you experience what it’s really like to work here before you make any commitment.
Why is it called Asda Magic?
An Asda Magic selection event is the best way of finding out what working at Asda is really like. We’ll give you an honest, ‘as-it-really-is’ insight into our culture, our business and the role you’re applying for. You’ll have the chance to meet some of our colleagues, to see how they work and ask any questions that you might have, so you’ll fully understand what it’s like here before you even start.
You’ll attend Asda Magic along with other potential candidates, but you won’t be competing with anyone – it’s more about whether you’re the right fit for Asda.
So, what will it involve?
During the event there will be:
- Some interesting team challenges
- A short interview
- A tour of the building – what we call a Whistle Stop tour of the store, where you will get the chance to see ‘Behind the scenes’
- Insight into Asda and the roles we offer
- A chance to “Have a Go”
Getting to ‘Have-a-Go’ yourself
As we’ve mentioned above, we like all of our candidates to get a real feel for the job they’re applying for before they start so for about half an hour you get the chance to ‘Have-a-Go’ at the job to get a feel for what it’s like. You’ll work alongside one of our colleagues who’ll show you how some of their job is done. This may include real tasks such as:
- Operating the checkouts
- Talking to customers
- Walking around the store looking for products
- Rotating and filling shelves
- Filling out questionnaires and checklists
Some of these tasks will involve moving around the store, as well as some physical activity such as lifting, twisting, pulling and carrying. We obviously want to make your experience on the day as enjoyable as possible, so if there is anything that you feel we need to know about that might cause difficulties for you in carrying out any of the “Have a Go” activities we have mentioned above, then please let us know in advance and we will do what we can to assist you. To do this please contact the store(s) to which you applied. You can find their contact details on our store site: storelocator.asda.com
As the selection event is practical, you’ll need to come dressed appropriately wearing something smart but casual (no trainers please). We understand you’ll want to make the right impression but obviously as you’ll be getting involved on the shop floor please don’t wear anything too formal.
