    Blah heard nothing today, Maybe tomorrow! I think if I've heard nothing by Monday I will phone the HR dept and just ask I'm worried about building my hopes up, it has been a week of rejections for everyone in my house this week!

    When I signed in the visitors book and got my visitors badge, I had a quick peep and no one else had been in for an interview that entire day (it was 2pm by the time I left), how many people do they actually interview per vacancy? Or does it depend on the store?

    Well when I had my interview I heard a couple of days after and they rang quite late, I think it was about 5pm. So give it a couple more days!

    That happens quite often in my store - say once every 3/4 months Barclay cards will get declined.

    I think the online application system shows all correspondence. If not just ring up the recruitment line and they'll be able to tell you what it said.

    Hi guys. I worked for Sainsburys for about 4 years a few years ago. I stopped working for them because I started Uni. I kinda regret not working for them now as I really need the money.

    Thing is when I left am not sure weather they completely struck me off the list or placed my name to one side. The last time I worked for them was xmas 2008 when I helped them over the festival period. Ever since I've not been back (I didn't actually tell them I wanted to quit).

    If I wanted to work for Sainsburys again would I need to apply from scratch again?

    Thanks

    Phone the old store and see if they still have you down on the books. If not then yeah, you'll need to re-apply online.

    Hi everyone.

    I started working properly at Sainsbury's this week working on the checkouts, and I had a quick question about authorising products like alcohol.

    I am only 17 years old and I know that I have to get authorisation from a supervisor if I want to process the sale of alcohol (providing they are over 18), but do I also need to get authorisation when selling products that are under my age, like paracetomol, or a 15 rated DVD/game?

    Just got an email saying I had "successfully enrolled in the induction", which is a bit of a strange way of saying I got the job :P I hope!

    thanks for that. when i went on Monday i did the DVD test on my own! 2 people were just comin out as i went in. then the 1:1 interview (which i did before the DVD)was the bloke from the bakery in his white outifit - including hat!! very informal. he just asked when would i be available, what hours could i work, what size i was for uniform and did i have a bank account. and after each question he kept saying " if you get the job". didn't ask why i wanted to work there or what can you bring to us, or tell me about yourself or any of the usual 1:1 questions. so i am just keeping my fingers crossed.

    Well done for getting the job:woo:
