    I see there is a vacancy in my store for a Checkout Supervisor.

    However, is there any way I can see what this particular job entails without letting them know I am interested?

    Would I have to let my current dept. manager know I am applying? Need notice with him etc.?

    I dont think there is much chance of me getting the job, as I am currently a part-time general assistant who is a bit of a loner there. But I would quit uni to become a full-time checkouts supervisor. Is this realistic?

    I am a checkout supervisor and I was on tills for about 3 hours today cause it was so busy. I haven't been on them in a while and I got some Brussels and I couldn't find them on the PLU group. I actually had to call my colleague over to tell me where they are! The lady said to me "do you not work on checkouts normally then?" and I'm like "yeah, I'm a supervisor on the department!" how shameful!
    Our self service machines appear to not have brussel sprouts anymore ^_^

    What store do you work in?



    Anyone else having issues with their self service machines since the installation of catalina? We have 13 SS tills and 9 of them where down today.

    Hmm. I wonder if different stores use different PLU numbers? or some items have more than one number?

    In my store:
    Carrots: 4562
    Limes: 4048
    Lemons: 4958
    Oranges: 3107
    Onions: 4665?

    The grapes and butternut squash are the same, dont know the others

    Strange
    Their pretty much universal over all the chains in the UK and US.

    I've noticed a board go up near the clocking machines about holiday... What is a 'close (closed??) date' and er I don't know, someone explain booking holiday to me :eek3: do not understand. might just leave it and work hahhaa at least it's straightforward.
    They allocate a set amount of hours holiday you may have over a month. If they reach the limit they stick a "FULLY BOOKED" sticker over the plastic wallet/piece of paper on the wall. This is the stores quota, not your departments. I made that mistake once >_>

    Oh, it means I booked my holiday according to the wall. It said only 10% had been booked, but the checkouts had already booked their quota for that month, so I had to miss my holiday.

    I saw this video on Youtube. I think Sainsbury's should roll this out nationwide. I'd pay more attention to the labels if there where jokes on them.

    I've noticed a job vancancy at my local Sainsburys for 16 hours and some of the days are quite good and fit in very well with uni but the others, not so much. Only one or two days don't fit in with my timetable. Would I be able to apply and perhaps ask about changing those days to the weekend?

    Is there anything I need to know about the application process or any general advice?

    The hours they have listed are the hours they want. If you can't do them, there will be someone out there who can.

    Weird, we have quite a few vacancies for temporary night shifters on the recruitment website. They wouldn't need 6 new people on night shift just for Christmas would they? They didn't last year, unless it's something to do with a refit.

    EDIT: end of contract is Xmas eve, so I guess they are Christmas temps. Weird.
