The bottom few posts are from a month ago. It’s still about £9.50. Fresh & frozen deliveries to Asda’s within a small radius.

Don’t see the point of this DC, there’s Wakefield, Pontefract, Doncaster on 1 end then Skem, Wigan, Warrington on the other, what’s the point?

Went up to Asda Rochdale last week along with a few other drivers for a Maths, English and drivers hour test. Nobody had there licence entitilment checked and not heard from them since

Theyre not interested…

I gathered that :cry: Got a few back up interviews lined up this week anyway. Had one today at JW Lees. Was given a bacon butty during interview with coffee and a goody bag to take home that contained a bottle of Marco Pierre White “The Governor” beer and a pint glass :smiley: No job offer at the end of it though :unamused:

Ask Asda, they spent millions on building it. Presumably they had a reason!

What difference does it make to a driver anyway, if there’s a job there and you need one!!

If I had to hazard a guess, it is to relieve pressure on the others because of all these little ex-Netto stores they now deal with. Maybe they have plans to open more smaller stores going forwards, I don’t think Rochdale is even at 50% capacity yet.

Quiet word from the gov/local authorities to regenerate the area me thinks, with tesco ‘recently having moved out’ Asda was the next best thing, supermarket glory days are finished so I doubt it’ll even run at full capacity unless they shut Wakefield/Skem.

There are no jobs like ‘ZigZag’ said otherwise he/she would have one, they’re not interested!

Maybe there are jobs and maybe there aren’t, you said you couldn’t see the point in the D.C. but I somewhat doubt you are privy to ASDA’s development plans.
It is possible that things have changed since the DC was planned but I would hazard a guess that a lot of people at a high level in ASDA’s management structure saw some point to it at the planning stage least.
