When I got hired at ASDA, my interview lasted less than one minute (I'm genuinely not exaggerating). It's not hard to make an impression in that situation because the quality of candidate varies so heavily. If you're really keen to get off the check outs, you could work even harder and put on a perfect front to all the customers, but then again there are limitations of what you can do here. You're encouraged to smile and be helpful, ask if people need help with their bagging and make casual conversation. That's simply part of the Asda ethos. Going above that is not particularly easy to do and in a large Asda store where most of the employees are fairly veteran, the quality of service on the check outs is always good. If anything you're better off talking to the management on your breaks and working your way up that way. On the subject of working in a supermarket, I would actually strongly recommend that people who want a part time or full time job here, avoid the check outs. In other departments your work is more likely to be varied and you're far more likely to be able to work with another employee, form bonds and so on. Being on the check out is extremely isolated. There's almost no room to impress because it's so linear, and it's very hard to get to know people except when you're on breaks. I also avoided the freezer section cause I thought it'd be really cold.
