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

    Pros

    Company discount offers, flexibility with choosing the shifts that work for you.

    Cons

    Quickly becoming a completely sales driven company with no thought for customers or colleagues

    Advice to Management

    I do not think that it is a very nice thing that management are forcing us to do multiple people’s jobs at once, manipulating us into doing more than we can handle by saying “we pay you £9.20/hr, you signed the contract”. Yes we get paid a fair wage but it is used against us constantly which I find disgusting. I have worked for sainsburys for 4 years and it used to be an amazing company, customers and colleagues... were always a main priority. I loved working here and I recommended working there to so many people. However, now I would advise people against it. It seems that if you don’t fit management’s cookie cutter ideal, you will be pushed out of the company one way or another. I have seen this happen to a lot of fantastic colleagues in my store recently and it is not creating a pleasant environment to work in.
