    I'm trying to apply for a part time position in Sainsbury's and I have to provide two personal or professional referees.

    I recently worked for Royal Mail as an Xmas temp, but I don't know how to point this out in the online app, since it's asking for a person's name, address, email and number. Whose name should I provide? I had several managers in RM and I don't have their details. All the correspondence I have comes from "Royal Mail Group Limited"... Would it work if I just put the contact details of the local delivery center I worked for?

    Thanks for any advice :o:

    They don't check references until after you have got the job, so at this stage it doesn't really matter. I was asked for my referees details at the interview and at my induction training so you can mention the problem then. But, if I were you I would just put one of your managers names down (whoever liked you best!) or the HR manager.

    Just put any manager down, if it is sent to someone who shouldn't be dealing with your reference, they will pass it on to the person who is responsible.

    I haven't got any names T__T.

    I should've asked.

    They turned me down anyways. But thanks for your advice.
