    Hi,

    I had an interview a week ago. They didn't specify how long it would take for me to hear back, so i rang them up yesterday and they claimed they didn't know if i had been successful or not and have to play the waiting game. What do people make of this, likely or unlikely i will be offered a job?

    So last times disciplinary i didn't go due to the booking the meeting a couple of hours after i finish. This time, they sent me a letter for another displinary meeting for disscussing my "conduct namely absence" (what does that mean?) last time it only said "to dscuss your absence".

    Anyway, they sent a letter telling me to come in on the 10th July 2009, thats already passed. Should i assume that its the 10th august 2009 or ignore it as its their mistake?

    LOL I had my WOW training on tuesday..........what a load of crap.........atleast got 1 hour extra pay and did not work on checkouts for 2 hours........thanks to "wow" Training......I wish they start these kind of trainings everyday..... I realised how much sainsburys are wasting on wow training........Maybe in millions.......Better give away extra bonus instead of useless training which we already know and deliver.

    Hey,
    With me I called 5 days after my interview and was told they havent recieved the results yet and to call back in a couple of days, so I called then (making it a week after my interview) and was told I got the job!

    If you get through to someone who simply says they will text or email you, say NO - please take a look on my file.

    Make sure you have IRC reference handy.

    Just tonight, Sat on Monday before a whole week off, I'm FREE..for a week at least. Then no more holidays until January I hate how bad they are with holidays, it's disgusting. Oh well! I'll either be leaving or getting a dual contract at the end of this next school year, so all is good.

    Could contact them whilst making a big show about how annoyed you are etc. to receive notice about disciplinary action yet they cannot get the date right etc. It might stir things up a little.

    I think a lot of it is to do with how desperate the store is for staff. The store I applied to is very desperate and took me on less than 24 hrs after interview.

    are you leaving?

    if you are do you still take things seriously there(e.g : mcm ) ive seen some people give in their notice then they just muck arond and call in sick etc. lol i might do that but i doubt that they'll give me a good reference if i do

    anyone know if they automatically give you a reference if you leave? and i know that i'll have to give in 4 weeks notice but are there any exceptions that can get you to leave earlier?

    thanks

    You could just leave. You'll just lose some pay and get a bad reference. But you might get a bad one anyway knowing Sainsbury's

    If you're due holiday still, you should be able to leave in a month minus your holidays? We had a girl leave recently & because she was owed 3 weeks holiday, she left within a week :yes:

    I think you should be paid for those holidays though - as the law states you are entilted to be paid for any holidays you didn't use.

    Oh yeh, of course if you leave by giving & doing 4 weeks notice they will pay you any holiday owed. But I think she struck up a deal to leave after a week & use the last 3 as holiday she was owed & obviously still got paid for 4 weeks.

    Four nightshifts in a row, starting tomorrow. Bleh!

    With regards to this 4 weeks notice thing: is that only after the first 3 months? Because I'll probably be handing in my notice at the beginning of September - having worked there for just over a month - with my last shift being around the 16th September. Do you think that'd be all right?

    If you had only been working there for a month then you will be in your probationary period and can leave at any time.
