    Hello!

    I just got offered a job at Sainsbury's as a General Assistant Xmas Temp.
    I will be working part-time alongside my studies. I have an induction tomorrow from 9am till 6pm.

    I was wondering, has anyone had experience of working at Sainsbury's as a Xmas Temp? What does the induction involve?

    Thanks for your help.

    Congrats! You'll spend a lot of time watching videos, going over health and safety stuff, and signing contracts if you haven't already. You'll also likely do a tour of the store, including where everything like the break room is, and all the fire exits. They'll discuss things like the Think 25 policies and everything with you as well. They'll tell you bits about the company, and you'll probably do exercises out on the shop floor as well before you start work properly

    Haha it's not too bad It'll differ between stores as well. I find the Christmas temp inductions are better than the ones for permanent staff
