    Ok thankyou Do you reckon they will allow me that?

    And oh... :/ Well I only booked the holiday a couple of weeks ago, and the weeks that I wanted holiday were open.
    I once made the same mistake as you. The posers on the wall said there was still 15% to book for that month for the store, but the department was 100%

    If your already working for Sainsbuy's, Why do you need an interview?I got a transfer by asking through HR and they organised it all.

    Help please!

    I want to apply for a team leader position, and it says to apply in writing. Anyone have any idea's of what to include in that letter, and the layout etc. I've done some but it doesn't look right!
    Any help will be appreciated!

    I'm not a team leader or anything but I'd guess something like starting with "I am writing to apply for the team leader position..." and going on to say why you want the position, maybe how long you've been working there and any other training you've had that shows your commitment to Sainsbury's, and what you think makes a good team leader and why you would be good at it. Then finish with a thank you for their time, etc. Someone else might be more knowledgeable, those are just vague ideas off the top of my head. Good luck!

    Do you work in the same store as me? I saw a similar position with the same application system (And i've never seen "write a letter", its usually tell your manager).

    I just wrote "I want the apply for the xyz job because a. b. c. with the following hours per week.

    Thanks for that, I was thinking something along those lines.
    Just hope I get it, it seems to be an ideal position, as I'm already pretty much doing the job unofficially for less money :yep: :eek3:

    Ah, I see. I've applied/stated my interests on a number of occasions for the last 8 months or so, and I don't hear anything back, so I think it is my manager not telling them i'm interested. Hopefully now i'll hear something back this time.

    Ours said 'apply in writing'. Of course I'm not interested in being a team leader. :tongue: I know it's more money but I'm quite content just being a shelf stacker. Plus I'm happy enough - and the manager has started saying 'thank you' more and stuff after one of the colleagues had a go at him and told him to stop being so unappreciative of how hard we work... Which I guess could've got them sacked. lol.

    Yeah, they know I'm interested as well, but I've just been waiting for the position to arise. I just hope it all goes well, and I get it... time will tell :eek3:

    Ah Good Luck!
    When I applied, I wrote a short letter stating what position it was and that my intention was to apply.
    The interview is a bit difficult, but if you want to know how they do it, pm me.
    I did pass it, but couldn't do the job when they offered it to me because of the hours. Hopefully yours will be more successful

    Thanks for the help guys

    A couple more quick questions --
    Can I apply for Sainsbury's jobs on the website if I see something more suitable, if it hasn't been six months and stuff if I'm actually employed for sainsbury's already? Even if it's the same store, too?

    Can I have two Sainsbury's jobs on the go? Like 2x 16 hours? If I switch to days I may need to do this, or have to get another part time job -- bills to pay :woo:
    Anyone?
