Featured Review

Current Employee - Customer Service Associate

I have been working at J Sainsbury part-time for less than a year

Pros

The best part-time job for a student, I only work 12 hours a week. Nice management and team.

Cons

Ability to contact HR - not a thing. WOulnd't know what to do if there ever was an issue. Sick days are also VERY strict.

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at WHSmith full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

It's now out of business. It's been gone for for years so 2015 does not apply.

Cons

It's out of business. Now overseas as far as I know.
