    A memo was passed around to your managers where they are able to accommodate those that want to watch football, can do so, as long as that person isn't absolutely required. You'll have to make it up elsewhere though.
    Oh right thats sounds alright then. I don't expect to watch all of it. However the stores closes at 4 so would like to think I could see the 2nd half. We shall see.

    Haha at the cameras, dunno if the ones in our store are anywhere near the checkouts!

    have you memorised them all??:eek: I remembered oranges and peppers, but everything else I had no idea. And going into the PLU menu never seemed to take too long, but my scales never responded the first time.

    I have a list, but I know off the top of my head the 20-25 most common ones. I couldn't cope with having to use the menus all the time! Some of the fruit are easy as they have the number on the stickers...though I know a fair few of them through using them so often anyway.

    some interesting sainsbury's news for you guys
    World’s first supermarket beekeeper starts work at Sainsbury’s
    Supermarkets can offer a wide variety of careers, from retail management to food technology, to engineering. However, Sainsbury's is about to increase the repertoire of jobs available as it recruits retail's first ever beekeeper.
    Bee expert Robin Dean, has been recruited to set up and then maintain a network of ‘bee hotels' at 38 stores across London, as the company aims to help the UK's dwindling population of solitary bees. The initiative is part of the company's ‘Respect for the Environment' programme.

    Misc Bakery Item (Any Price) 4113!
    On the receipt that comes up as Misc Grocery. We tend to use it when self service decides to be naughty and stop working.

    I can't tell the difference between the apples or w/e, but when I see the colour of the label I know the number off the top of my head.

    7092 is white cabbage.

    I have something telling me that 1903 is lottery for the Kiosk (Although you can use it at any till *nod) -shrug-

    Wow... that's pretty catchy, lets hope Sainsbury's doesn't get hold of it and start playing it down the loudspeaker! haha

    and... good list of plu's! We have a list of numbers for most common things stuck on every till, but when we get our new ones, they won't fit on there. It really did help with productivity (so it seemed!)

    It's bad enough being stuck on the till beside the self checkout!

    Thank you for using, thank you for using...

    You've done it now!! :woo:

    Agree about the bee thing I think they're **** scary are bees, I actually had one in store the other week juuuuust casually paying a little visit to my till! Stupid thing. Only reason I didn't go nuts and kill it is cos it was a honey bee!!

    Uhmmm so yeah I won't be at Sainsbury's for much longer!! Just don't know when I'm handing in my notice (but I actually will do that, because I don't dislike anyone who works there and the current checkout manager has only just started on checkouts, wouldn't like to leave her with bad taste she seems nice!)
    :p:

    FINALLYY!! Looks like I'll be doomed to work in Coles instead... lol
