    I worked at J Sainsbury full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Staff discount of 10% and on occasion it goes up to a max of 20% for couple days.
    Uniform provided.

    Cons

    The HR are useless, always side with the `favourites`
    Management are useless, i reported that there was a member of staff stealing and eating the products and they did not do a thing, even though they saw him do it many times, also the theif used to come in to work drunk.
    I lost my yearly bonus due to the HR department not telling me i would not receive as i handed notice in 24 hours too early even though i had worked the whole tax year and got told by HR i would defo receive it. I tried to appeal but they refused it for sake of 24 hours. There was nothing in a handbook to staff about this `small print`.
    The majority of staff are miserable and always gossiping and try to cause trouble (not my experience,just watching from afar)
    The managers beleive they are the best thing since sliced bread.
    This company i worked for nearly 7 years and gave excellent customer service and they couldnt even repay me with a bunch of flowers to say thankyou.
    Do not work for them, they are a joke.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at J Sainsbury part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Young people working
    If you are fair and reasonable Managers are helpful and can accommodate for last minute holidays

    Cons

    Turnover of people is bad
    Some workers are so bad, they accept any vouchers and really don't value working there.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of people that obviously don't care, some people get to work for nothing.
    People who worked at the bakery use to eat the pastries, I won't mention named but they were young lads.
    One or two supervisors shouldn't be and are absolutely useless and terrible in terms of customer service
