Pros

There are not many good reasons for working in sainsburys apart from the fact that its easy to get a job in there even people like david beckham would get a job at the snap of two fingers. The other reason why it is kinda reasonable is because if you work on the deli you can eat as much as you want, your not suppose to, but what the hell who cares if sainsburys losed 50p evertime you eat a slice of ham. Oh and maybe one more thing everyone that you work with in their hates the whole management tier.

Cons

When you actually get given a discount card its 10%, oh wait that aint that good. Every manager is stuck up their own arse, except the normal department managers and sometimes even they act as though their god.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would advise managment to not talk to their employees like they are dogs and to get their head out of their arse otherwise one day they may have a brown face when they come up against someone that isnt going to let themselves be spoken down to.

    Variety great, pay disappointing

    I worked at J Sainsbury

    Pros

    The role had lots of variety and could involve anything from conducting disciplinary hearings with employees to stacking freezers on the shop floor. All roles customer facing and if you enjoy working and dealing with people then this role is for you. There is a lot of scope for "on the job training" as the approach is very much "get stuck in" so if you like a challenge and picking things up as you go along this role will suit you

    Cons

    The pay was certainly on the low side and sometimes the hours can be unsociable as operations are 24 hours seven days a week. The lack of career progression opportunties was certainly a drawback as was the support available for more formalised personal development and training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Paying people slightly above minimum wage is no good for staff retention

    Pros

    job security staff discount pension plan

    Cons

    the hours are sometimes insociable, but this is I suppose to be expected in a retail environment. customers are I find much ruder than they used to be, and I think this is partly because we pander to their every whim. Whilst I agree that sometimes the customer is right, not always so and this reflects in their attitude to the staff. A more positive attitude towards staff would result in a happier working atmosphere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    to be more receptive and friendly towards staff and to realise that it is us who are dealing face to face with the public and thus providing THEM with their bonuses!! We are also human and a Good morning or acknowledgment would do wonders for morale, praise as well as criticism would go a long way to making it 'GREAT' again!!
