I have been working at J Sainsbury part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great prospect of progression and training. Key to success is staff and the company understands this quite clearly.

Cons

Improve pay to a living standard. Store management could adopt a flexible management style to improve operations. Having to work a few departments at the same time during busy periods with minimal staff is a struggle.

    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.
