Pros

Holiday time is about the best thing to say about Sainsbury's....although the staff discount isn't bad at certain times of the year....

Cons

Lack of respect from some of the departmental managers towards other members of staff. Constant procedure changes by the management on the basis that you're supposed to be able to read their minds!

Advice to Management

You need to retrain some of your department managers in the art of of to treat other members of staff with respect in order to get the best out of them. The phrase "to many chiefs and not enough indians" springs to mind. The night shift are a law unto themselves causing a great deal of problems for the day shift....And i think the term "to many kingdom builders" also springs to mind along with bullying by departmental manager who seem to think that is how they are going to gain respect by making people cry and belittling them in front of others. So, Senior managers do your self a favour and take care of the staff that help you get your big bonuses at the end of the day.
