    Yeah, it should be an hour's unpaid lunch, but you'll get a paid break as well.

    Hi,

    Just want to say a quick thanks to this thread, it's been incredibly useful to refer too during my application to Sainsburys.

    Had my first day today on produce, I really like it and I didn't get bored at any point which was quite surprising since I'm always bored haha. Just waiting for my shoes now as the ones I have kill my feet, 8 hours of walking around was horrible haha.

    I'm really struggling here to make a decision. I know we're not supposed to talk about Painsburys on line, but I dont know what to do, & I need to have ideas by monday!
    Our dept needs everyone who starts after 7am to change their hours.
    Do I go with the flow & start work at 4am, & finish at 8am, OR start at 5am, stop at 7am, start again at 9am & finish at 11am (manager has suggested something like this due to my other commitments) OR change departments & stay with my 9-1pm?
    I love the dept I am on. And the thought of changing fills me with dread to be honest.
    Will I learn to work the checkouts? Are they difficult?
    What's the matter with the world these days, people seem to have their job sorted, & work darn hard at it, yet change still happens & turns everything upside down. Makes you wonder why you bother at times...

    We have quite a few people who do the 4am-8am shift so they can go home to deal with their kids.

    What prevents you from doing 4am-8am, or is it just the early mornings? I'm sure you'd get used to it :yep: why don't you try it out and if it doesn't work ask if you can try the other option? Just try things out- leave switching departments as a last resort.

    I guess. I can just see it being a right headache to be honest. I have to drive my kids 5 miles to school, leaving home at 8.15, I can see them taking advantage, me getting home & one of them not even dressed saying 'I dont feel well blah blah blah'
    Will be nothing I can do with 10 minutes to spare. I just have visions of it being a right nightmare lol
