    Do stores actually get a fine from Trading Standards if we trade for more than 6 hours on a Sunday. It was mega busy and we "over-traded" by about 10 minutes.

    By over trade you mean to 6 hours 10 minutes? No..up to 6 hours 30 minutes will go unnoticed. Its an unusual week if we aren't still trading at 4.15

    I always thought you were a team leader.

    Best of luck anyway!

    I had an interview on Friday for a new store? Which store is it and what position you apply for?

    I basically am a team leader, but I don't get paid to be one. I do the assisted shops, cashier observations etc (There is probabally more to it that what I do, but it seems like I do too much for my current job description :P)

    Why would they pay you to be a team leader when you're doing it for free :woo: that's what happened on my shift anyway lol.

    Manager is getting much better though. I think a couple of people had a go at them and they have really made an effort which is nice :yep:

    There's a job going around my area (well there's three) but i've applied for one and can't for some reason apply for all three which is a shame.. hopefully i'll get this job as the store is really close to me (less then 05-10 minutes walk) and i could do with the money, suprisingly the store is advertising as permenant so i presume its just a general permenant job rather then temporary over the christmas period.. suits me fine i'll even do overtime if needed tbh.

    Here's hoping i get a reply back!

    btw how long does it take for them to reply back?

    Hey, I'm back in this thread for a quick question.

    I left Sainos in March after working there for 4 months, and now need a reference so I can get a job at uni. How do I go about this - is it central HR or store HR that I have to speak to?

    I would just put down the name of your manager/a team leader & the address of the store. I thought they contact them, anyway?

    I think I got underpaid by a week but I'm not so sure, it's confusing working it out. My first payday was last month and I got paid for the days I worked right up until the deadline and then I assumed the week you work after the deadline up until the next deadline you are paid for, which should be 4 weeks worth, am I right?
