We should be allowed some sort of meal allowance if we have to work through lunch, especially if we don't have a canteen that supplies got food!

What is wrong with buying your own food for lunch? Pretty much every employer out there is going to expect you to provide your own food. You would buy your own food at home for lunch so why should they provide food for you at work?

The meal deals are really good! Especially when the wraps are like £2.80 or something like that

Taste the difference sandwiches are £3, so you are getting crisps and a drink free!

And I had a brand match the other day so got it for £1.45

Pretty sure that would need high up authorisation and would complicate payroll, it's unlikely unless the other store specifically requests extra staff. But tbh most stores have enough staff within them to fill overtime requirements

Ah okay that's a shame. Thanks
Do you know if there would be a fair bit of overtime in a Local store?

Had an offer of a store transfer and need to find out everything haha..

Yea, but the sainsburies bagels!!! Only kosher bagels can beat them, and they aren't always available

Also, your staff are far more pleasant than Asda. And you have a larger variety of mushrooms. Need the portobellas and such for my home made pizzas!

That's because they aren't worth £2.80 in the first place Most Sainsbury's sandwiches are no better than the Tesco sandwiches, which are still cheaper even with colleague discount. I reckon Sainsbury's sandwiches are artificially high so you'll think "well, it's only 40p/30p/20p more for the meal deal", so they get £3 every time, haha.

Hello everyone !

I got a job for a temporary position as a Customer Service Assistant in a Local store in London. I called HR the other day and they gave me my induction days dates. Unfortunately, I cannot attend my second induction day as I will not be in London for a week because of unforeseen circumstances. HR told me that they will have to ask the store where I am doing my training if they are willing to open up another induction day for me to attend and that they're gonna get back to me after that.


What would happen if there is no other induction day available for me to go to? Will I be let go as this is only a temporary position and there's too much hassle for them to do all that just for a temp ? Or will they try to accommodate me as much as they can ? Maybe double the hours on my first induction day, which would mean I would have to stay in for 12 hours straight, or just find another store for me to go for my induction.


Thank you ! Image

You've asked this 3 times. No one really knows, but when I accepted my job I said what happens if I can't make that day, she said you have to wait for the next intake which could be several weeks. But you mentioned your a temp so you'd probably not be employed.
