    Apparently, if you wear a Uniform to work you can claim back the expenses incurred from washing and drying.

    Might be of interest?
    I saw that on Facebook.. haven't tried it yet though, but it seems like free money :yep:

    At my store, we have a target of 34MPO(minutes per order):confused: , we don't unload the shopping anymore, and we aren't allowed to look in warehouses/out the back...if it's not there sub it. We also have to do as little pending as possible.
    We are meant to spend an average of 19 seconds in the online area:rolleyes:

    This generally leads to team leaders standing around talking to the drivers half the time....thats what I used to do

    Looks like some idiot in a suit in Holborn, who has never shopped came up with this for brownie points.


    That said, my manager doesn't seem to be as interested in the targets now.

    Us shoppers dont offload the trolleys at all. I might do if I only have one tote of shopping, but usually it's a case of leaving the trolley & picking up a new one, then you're off again.
    Since they shortened the shopping times recently, none of us are managing to do the AMB3's on time, that's the magazines, cigarettes, bread, eggs, alcohol. Probably because it starts at one end of the shop, goes to the other end, then to the middle! lol

    Does anyone know what the new Online targets are all about? I was in Sainsbury's earlier and one of the Online girls was on overtime at checkouts and was on a tangent about how things have 'gone to the dogs'. I can't stand the place, and I can't stand her, so I made a sharp exist.

    What's so bad about them? :confused:
    Clear out your inbox!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!

    You should clean the plastic covers on the shelf edge where the prices go. They are filthy >_>

    Lol I did that at the same time!
    I seriously think they should actually advertise for someone, even only one person, to clean full time, all the shleves from one end to the other. By the time they have finished they would be ready to go again. Boring though I know!
    I am really frustrated at the moment with shopping. Item is out of stock on the shelf, so we sub it, later on we walk past an end shelf & the item is there!
    Even one of our team leaders agrees we haven't got time to go searching the store.
    Trouble is, this will get a black mark when the MCS notices it in the store, so even though the dept managers dont give a shiney apparently. They soon will need to! :rolleyes:

    Our milk aisle is fine. We did have a bit of a problem a week ago when a customer pushed a broken tin of beans to the back of the shelf. Made the aisle smell of farts.

    That reminded me of a customer I had who wanted to bring meat back because it smelled nasty. I said to him I'll do no questions asked, as long as I don't have to smell it

    What did he do? He opened it so I could smell it. >_<

    our milk aisle is a bit gross, i got milk all over my trousers the other day cos it had leaked everywhere, i was terrified i was going to break my neck by slipping on it...

    i think crying your eyes out after a shift is incredibly abnormal. i think i need some sleep
