    I got a unsuccessful rejection email after my interview today from sainsbury's, really gutted, needed this job... Anybody else got this before and know if you can apply again in the future?

    Any words of encouragement, feel really depressed right now. :cry2::dong:

    Yes! I have been rejected so many times! It took me ages to get my first job and I finally work in Primark. Definitely apply again - perseverance is a good thing! Make sure you prepare and improve from last time. Practise in a mirror, dress smart and look at their website - find what makes them tick. Hope that helps!

    Some places won't let you reapply within a period of 6/12 months (e.g. Boots, Next, Aldi etc)
    Some places you can reapply or submit more than one application at a time
    It's mostly just passing the long online questionnaires that's the problem. Try think how you would feel as a customer, or try putting yourself in the shoes of a retail assistant

    Sainsbury's allows you to apply again to other jobs immediately so go for it!
