    Normally you get a delivery and you're expected to work it. Obviously not all of it will go on the shelves but... My advice: try and get as much of it out as possible because of the MAC. I don't know what stores policy is on splitting cases but I do it anyway.

    If you think it will go out without overflowing then get it out. You don't want to be left with 6 pallets of overs that you have to break down in the back by yourself.

    If you work H&B often, you definitely don't want a lot of overs! Tagging that *** is PAINFUL

    Does Sainsburys staff have to pay for parking? How does this work if you are at work for eg 8 hours?

    All the staff at my store have a little orange sticker on the mirror so they don't pay.

    Hi all,

    I had my two induction days monday and tuesday just gone, all went well.

    I have two more days of till training I think next monday and tuesday from 10am till 7 pm. Any advice or info on what sort of things i'll do on those days, is it particularily hard? (I've never worked on a till before)

    i like the new TTD packaging, ithink it looks a lot better than the old packaging.

    loving the cookie offer though, night shifters are currently surviving on cookies...
    I hate the cookie offer. 8 racks of those things I had to pack today, and they all went out before 4pm! We usually get one every two days. Bring on a week on Tuesday I say :woo: But I bet that's when we bring in mince pies. ugh.

    Doing 20 hours this week including overtime so getting in the good books and I've not even been here for a month so fingers crossed everything will continue to run smoothly.
    Will need to actually get myself a Nectar card at some point...

    I have an interview on Friday too! Before my shift. I wonder if I will get paid for it

    I don't have the guts to ask, since I actually want the job :P

    Getting trained to do Kiosk and haven't even been here a month. I've been getting plenty of overtime so I think I'm doing quite well at the moment.

    They trained me in Kiosk on my second Shift. Other than having to ID more people and deal with the inevitable abuse its much better than normal checkouts.
