    Why don't you ring them and find out?

    You can explain your holiday to them on the phone and I'm sure they can arrange something!

    lol, i started working at sainsburys about a month ago. When your ring them, they will say congratulation on the job offer, would you like to accept the offer? Then if you do accept it, they will give you your regular hours (didn't you discuss this at your interview?), and tell you your induction dates (2 days of induction). My induction was like 2 weeks after I got the job offer, but I worked at a different Sainsburys last christmas as a xmas temp, and the induction was literally a couple of days after the job offer, but that was at xmas so everything was rushed!! Did you tell them at the interview that you were going on holiday??

    I was advised when I had my Sainsburys interview that the paticular store I had interviewed for was desperate for people and would probably do inductions as soon as possible after the job acceptance (even looking at the next day)
