    I worked at Sainsbury's Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are great.A few stress heads but that's every where.Same old 'retail banter' and such.Job training is ok,You do this this and this.One of the few jobs on store that have a full time contract which is a shame.Sainsburys is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Working outside is horrible, traffic, late online shoppers due to online crash crash, extra drops,finding addresses in the dark because equipment and sat nav is useless.Council estates with no lifts and no help.You are on your own.Don't bother calling anyone they won't help.Hardly saw management.If I'm honest they expect a little much of 1 person.Should be a 2 person job.Also if you finish early you won't get paid for it so have a coffee or sit in the staff room is what a lot of drivers do.Very physical and demanding work.A lot of women with bad backs and such as a result.No toilet (Got to search them out).If I'm honest I would rather be in store.If a driver is late or calls in sick,its not as though just anyone can drive.Recently left due to finding a higher paid job.

    Advice to Management

    Have stand in drivers incase of late or no show drivers.Make it a two person job (it will be safer and job will be done quicker).Management should show up more.Training shouldn't be so quick.Basically - care more.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sainsbury's Bank (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I applied online. The next day I received an email asking me to call HR and arrange for an interview.
    At the interview I was made comfortable. I was asked to do some basic math test and currency exchange test, which I had half an hour for. It is very important not to make any mistakes. After that I was asked many competency questions. Make sure you ask some questions back. It is important to show your intrest in the job and good to mention why you want to work for sainsburys bank. We discussed the hours, rota, uniform size, holidays etc. The overall experience was good. If you well prepared and do research about sainsbury you should be fine.
