    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at J Sainsbury full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Staffcard with 10% off after 6 months. Fit around family commitments.

    Cons

    Very early start - 4am mostly. Does become very boring. Constantly being monitored for speed New management structure got rid of team leaders and merged some management roles and so many very experienced staff have left. New ones are not very good

    I have been working at J Sainsbury part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Job in itself very good and so easy, money not too bad for what we do, just gone to £9.20 and a discount for staff which comes in very hand

    Cons

    If your face doesn't fit then not good, very clicky and not a very nice atmosphere to work in, hours difficult, too many people getting away with too much like not conforming to the uniform properly and too much talking rather than achieving

    I worked at J Sainsbury full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay whilst being under 25 Friendly colleagues Many opportunities to explore working other departments Good diversity amongst staff

    Cons

    Poor management and lack of clear authority for the department often caused confusion amongst staff. Christmas hours felt forced with little time for planning shifts and mostly non negotiable beginning at 4am Constant need for staff to work overtime

    I worked at J Sainsbury part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great managers. Support if you struggle to hit the items picked per hour target. Understanding if you call in sick. Overtime was available and was offered with no pressure at all. Friendly work environment.

    Cons

    Target was difficult to hit because of the way it was calculated. Constantly increasing target. Early morning 4/5am starts.

    I worked at J Sainsbury part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice people, pays well, early mornings a bit rubbish but means you can have the rest of your day free.

    Cons

    Get asked to do too much overtime even if you're busy, targets are hard to meet sometimes, 130 items or something, must be scanned an hour, it's easy with some shops but other shops make it harder to meet but managers still get annoyed if you don't meet the targets.
