^^ I know it'll be different for every sainsburys, think i had the last interview slot so the important people should be making their decision over the next few days, also was told its an agency that rings you up and offers the job. Do they still get in contact if you dont get the job? So inpatient
i only waited two days...then got a phonecall from their headquarters about hours....then i turned them down! it was a fun process!
Same, they phoned me about 5 times, twice before I missed, I phoned them back, and they were like bla bla hours, I was like I can't do them as I have another job now. So I declined. Two days later at work, I got a phone call to my home number which my dad picked up asking me about the job. I got home and they phoned me again :/

Okay, its just frustrating! Might start looking for other jobs just incase I dont get this one
Yes, please do, always go for more than one job at a time, it increases your chances :P

...yes and has your opinion maybe altered significantly, since you started working for them? I'll bet.
I have to disagree with you completely. I think it may just be your store which is poorly organised.
I had my interview, and then (iirc) a day later I had a email saying I was successful and a call later my induction date was sorted. Induction went smoothly and uniform and everything was on time (unlike what some have found).
Since I have been working at my local store, I have been able to have my contracted shift/hours changed 3 times without any problems (although the last one had a slight ooh! ahh! to it). And even my promotion went perfectly! No problems whatsoever!
In fact, if anything, my opinion has improved highly! And I would reccomend anyone to work at Sainsburys - as if their store is anything like mine, it will be a enjoyable (can you say that about work LOL) experience.
I didn't get much uniform for a while. I was given a second hand huge blue polo on my first day and one pair of trousers and that's all. The polo even had white paint or something stained on it, luckily it was a place I could put my badge over so I didn't look like I was dirty and didn't wash! So I had to wear that for a while until a new order came in and I got my own polos. It didn't bother me that much apart from being cold, but the other new starts hadn't any jumpers or anything either so it wasn't just me.
I definitely don't think every store is as poorly organised as yours seems. I don't have much of a problem with how things are run at the store I work in, I just find the job incredibly boring after a year and a half. That's my only real fault with it.
