    So I've been applying regularly to my local sainsburys but I just can't "meet the benchmark"

    I feel like my answers are correct..... I normally choose "ask team leader" or whatever is best for the customer. I just don't get it! When I walk around the store they are clearly some chavy people employed there, but I can't get a job?

    help?

    Chavy or not clearly better than you, I suggest you stop being so judgemental.

    Try somehere else. Screw Sainsburys. You're wasting your time if you think about it too much. If they want chavs then fine. Just move on.

    Sometimes it isn't your skills or anything. Sometimes you just don't fit into the culture in the company (in this case in the this branch of Sainsburys). There's an employer out there that wants you. Also a lot of retailers don't want to take on graduates or uni students because of the fear they'll be moving on fast.
