I wouldn't call them rude. It's just some of them aren't very attentive e.g. if you're stuck on the self check-outs they wont really notice. However, in most cases this can be solved by being polite and smiling at them; if they feel valued they are more likely to want to help you.

Because they get paid for it. And people need money to pay for a house, car, food & other essentials. You'll find that out in the real world though.

I agree, I don't think anyone is 'too good' for any job.

If you actually worked at Asda, or in fact any supermarket or just in retail at all, you'll quickly discover the soul-destroying nature of it. They have to deal with awkward customers who kick off about something that isn't there fault, day in day out. It's unfair to tell them to 'give it 100%' if you haven't actually experienced what they experience. Plus a lot of them are on minimum or just above minimum wage. The financial motivation just isn't there for them.
Even if your sole-motivation is money you shouldn't be acting rude and being generally unhelpful to the customers that are paying your wages.
"Soul destroying" Spare me the theatrics, parking your ass on a chair and watching items traverse on a conveyor belt is not hard. Neither is any other Asda job.

Soul destroying is working in a coal mine or an oil rig and risking your life or cleaning toilets while someone takes a dump two cubicles away from you. Working in Asda is not hard, so please tone it down. :rolleyes:

Because people have bills to pay duh

Have you ever been raped through the earhole ? Because I can honestly say after about 3 hours on a checkout thats what it feels like , if you was to work for asda I guarantee after a month you will despise it .

You can't expect someone working in that sort of job to be all smiles 24/7 , I think the job is absolutely soul destroying tbh . like modern work houses imo and having worked in retail I can't blame them for acting the way they do.
Ear-rape? Maybe if you were more enthusiastic about the people you're serving you might find the ear rape bearable. I'm not sure how sitting on your ass is considered soul destroying.

I'm not asking for you to be a robot and be perfect 24/7 however being courteous shouldn't be something you switch on and off it's common decency.

Do you have a silver spoon up your ass, OP? Have you even had a job before?

I want to believe you're just trolling (again) because you can't be that naive.
I've never had a job, no. Though I'm not sure why that's relevant at all seeing as I was the customer an' all.


The customer is always right first rule of retail, no?

I really can't take you serious as you've never worked a day in your life.

Blablabla Silver spoon fed Blablabla Daddy pays for my Iphone BlaBlaBla Trust fund

Just because you've been spoon fed all your life don't expect the real world to treat you like a princess

Sit the **** down on your privelleged ass and be quiet.

When you have had a job then you can talk

Yours sincerely ,

Mr held down a job since I was sixteen

The nearest waitrose is a 40 min drive from me whereas Asda is like 20mins.

Being treated with courtesy and respect shouldn't cost me 20mins of my time.
You have to pay for good service... go to Waitrose








or your future husband who will pay for everything can take you there

I used to work for a supplier to ASDA.

Before the staff entered the shop floor, a notice said' Rule no 1- the customer is always right. Rule no 2- if in doubt refer to rule no 1.'

Presumably the notice has disappeared.

There's no need to insult my character because I disagreed with your outrageous claim that working the check-outs at Asda is "soul-destroying". If you dislike people maybe refuse to go on check-outs and just do the unpacking/manual labour or even security.


See this is what I meant when I was referring to the entitlement culture that so many people have these days, doing your job shouldn't be something the customer has to ask for. You're there to work not get paid for doing squat.


Again, why do I need to have a job before I can call you rude for being a **** to the people who'll pay your wages.

You've had a job since you were sixteen, okay, should I be impressed? Or do you want a medal from me?


My parents are not wealthy and I certainly don't have a trust fund. You're being unreasonable now... :rolleyes:

i seriously advice you get your first job in retail. The staff can take sooo much **** from customers, you are looking at your experience from a rather self entitled perspective.
Asda do not pay a living wage even though they could, very easily.
And they even have no problem with taking on unpaid staff for 'work experience'.
If you were working in an office, chances are you would be allowed a light hearted exchange with your colleagues from time to time. I see no difference with a checkout worker, especially as they are being paid considerably less, whilst suffering unjust rudeness from self-entitled selfish individuals.

It really isn't outrageous , I actually love people but the job has admittedly made me dislike the human race much more .

It's difficult to put into words why working in such a job can be so depressing as you assume people are just sitting on a chair all day , lol so now I can tell my manager what to do ? :rolleyes:

I really cba to repeat what i've already said but generally when people join the job they are happy to bend over backwards for customers , but the majority of customers these days are ***** who just make you hate your job and thus most employees are going to put minimum effort into the job they do.

I beg to differ since when was animal welfare 'snobby'. That's a horrendous attitude to have. Why don't I mass farm you just because people want to eat you and have your life for that little bit cheaper.
Hey, what's wrong with genetically breeding chickens with no claws and beaks so they can't hurt each other when mass farmed just to save a few pence?


and again, the problem with it is animal welfare.
It's ridiculous pushing down the price at the cost of animal welfare. Think EU meant needs to be banned, and halal too. Oh and Kosher.

If I got a job at Asda I'd give it my 100% and sure I'd have bad days at work like everyone but I wouldn't moan or tell customers to give me a break because I didn't want to work there. :rolleyes:
that is a little rich coming from someone who has never had a job and never wants one

I suppose if you can afford to be picky about your meat then go ahead , for the masses though survival > animal welfare.

Especially if you eat lots of meat , you can end up spending triple what you usually would , which is very impractical.
