    Hi,

    I'm currently working night shifts at Sainsburys over the Christmas period, and am just curious whether other people have experience of them and what their impressions are. Aside from messing my body clock up, I'm finding it really hard work physically. I'm not the fittest person in the world, and my back's not great, which doesn't help. I also get the feeling I've not been trained very well on a lot of things - nothing really difficult or anything, mind you, just a feeling I've done various things wrong which I wouldn't have done if someone had bothered to tell me. Getting the right amount of stock onto the shelf in the right way is sometimes a lot more fiddly than it looks (you might not recognise this unless you've tried it!). There are all sorts of little easy mistakes to make.

    I'm aware the night shift leaders are going around putting pressure on people, telling them "you're going slow tonight", "you need to work faster" and so on. Several of the people who started at the same time as me have had this experience. It's not happened to me yet, though I've got a gut feeling it might not be long until they're breathing down my neck in the same way.

    Anyone else been through any of this?

    Yours,
