    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    To meet new people and interact with customers. If you like knowing what goes on behind the scenes of companies, then Sainsburys is a good place to work. The staff discount is also a bonus and the feeling that you have helped customers.

    Cons

    The pay isn't very enticing, and management can be awkward when trying to book time off.

    Advice to Management

    The store manager needs to interact with employees more and give them praise for doing jobs well. He also needs to spend more time on the shop floor, taking part in jobs there, to see how the store is operating.


  2. "Team leader"
