    Most Groceries Online Shopper roles I see is only for 12 hours. Is it possible to increase these hours??
    Yes. They prefer to give everyone 12 so that there is more flexibility when they need extra hours.

    Hmm. When you do a duplicate receipt it all comes up on the screen like a saved transaction. Would this boost your IPM too?
    Initial guess would be no because it is not "new" items going onto the screen, as it is not getting paid for.

    I look forward to the little test that ohno is going to do ^_^

    I just had an interview, not sure it went that brilliantly but it was an experience! Everyone was very nice and I didn't feel under pressure much but i'm just not very good at thinking of good answers to the generic interview questions. They asked me what I knew about sainsburys, i was like erm, it's a very large store which is part of the FTSE 100. :facepalm: But yeah, i forgot to ask when they'd get back to me. When is it usually?

    Hi, I have sucessfully been contracted as a Customer Services Assistant for 16 hours per week. I recently completed my induction day, and had a few questions I hoped you guys would be able to answer for me:

    1. Are the tills easy to get used to, and I'm talking more of the advanced features (lol) such as lottery tickets etc.?

    1. How well and how thoroughly do you enforce the 'Think 25' policy?

    1. As I am under 18 I understand I am entitled to 30 minutes break for every 8 hours which I work, would I be able to take this break whenever I want or would I require permission from my supervisor?

    1. I understand to pass the probationary period after 12 weeks I will have to gain a sufficent mark in a test, and was wondering how difficult and what sort of questions were involved in this test?


    Sorry for the list of questions but as I say I am just an ignorant new starter haha.

    Tills are easy after a few weeks. Are you working in the kiosk? Otherwise I don't think you'll be dealing with lottery tickets. Think 25 has to be rigorously applied, it is actually there for your own benefit. Breaks are when supervisors decide, although after a few weeks you'll start to get to know them and should gain some influence on when you have them. Don't worry about the end of probation at week 12, I'm just reaching the end of week 14 and I've been telling them every day for the last three weeks I need to sort out my end of probation, they don't seem to care!

    And if they ever do get around to your probation, they won't let you fail the test. It costs too much to recruit new staff to do that.

    Yeah, if I were you I'd ring up and ask them to confirm the validity of the email, considering the fact that they refer to a position you didn't apply for. They might have accidentally left it in and are still rejecting you, but it's worth enquiring to make sure.

    After reading through the entire thread which took ages, >_> I've got a few questions.
    I've recently been offered a job as a customer service assistant although after reading through here it doesn't seem as appealing as I first thought. Anyway...

    1. I haven't actually had my induction yet but when I go start my first proper shift what types of shoes will I be required to wear. Are there any rules on this?

    2. I'm currently contracted to work 16:30 - 22:30 on a Saturday but I was wondering how soon after I start I will be able to change this to an earlier time on a Saturday as I have a few family events on late nights on Saturdays and I would have to miss out if that's the case which I wouldn't mind so much for about the first couple of weeks but after that I can see it annoying me.

    Well done for actually reading the thread To answer your questions:

    As a customer service assistant, any black shoes will do fine. They don't even have to be particularly smart - black trainers will do as long as they can be polished up nicely.

    It depends how much earlier you're talking, but it's worth asking the store trainers at your induction. Some people on my induction managed to change their hours around then. Otherwise just talk to your department manager as early as possible.
