    Must be something about online! In the year and three months I've been there, the worst illness I've had is a sniffle that lasted a day. Sainsburys has really boosted my immune system :p:
    Online is the superior section of Sainsburys :five:

    I'm starting 5 hour shifts this week. What break am I entitled to? 15 mins? Also I may be doing an extra 4 hour shift on checkouts, which would be 9 hours straight, what am I entitled to then? I was going to ask my manager about this at the end of my shift today but couldn't find her.

    It's in your contract:

    working 4.5 hrs but less than 6: 15 minute break
    6-8 hours: 20 minute break, 15 mins paid
    8-9 hours: 30 min break OR two 15 min break
    9+: 45 min break taken as one 30 min break and one 15 min break

    obviously it depends as some may give you more time. "if you get one hour lunch break it will be unpaid"

    Thanks for that, just had a look at my contract.

    I've been till trained but am not to sure on two things. Can anyone help me?

    1. Gift cards, can't remember the exact process. I know you have to scan and swipe. but do you have to press something before that?

    2. sainsbury's discount card. not too sure on this, had one yesterday but the person on the till next to me did it for me. didn't catch exactly what he did.

    With gift cards you just have a scan the barcode, then break off the card that had the mag strip and swipe that.. you may have to input an amount that the customer wants if it is a top up gift card.

    Just swipe the sainsbury's discount card. sometimes it wont work so you go into the tender screen and go onto the second page (I think, it maybe on the first page) where it'll say STAFF DISCOUNT which you press then swipe it or input the number of the card, the issue number and the expiry date I think.

    We were told not to break off the gift card, but to do it some other way. Another thing I can't remember. :dong:

    Weird :\ But the customer doesn't really need the barcode bit, and how else would we swipe the card? Unless you input a number or something

    You can swipe it though the pin machine. Your not actually meant to use the side strip thing. My store went to the length of disconnecting it >_>

    I just reconnect it if I ever find myself on till.

    Quick question. I'm doing a presentation about Sainsburys for uni. What does MCM stand for? Mystery Customer Measure?

    Ahh the pin machine, thing is that it is difficult to reach over to swipe it because it isn't facing me and some customers always fail to swipe it correctly :\

    Yep MCM stands for Mystery Customer Measure, but I never remember what MAC stands for....mystery something :rolleyes:

    If you hand them the card and ask them to swipe it for you, they will.
