    yeah i have a copy of the contract, problems with times are that friday and saturday nights i dont want to be working + going to chelsea games 3pm k.o saturday or 4pm sunday i would not get to work in time
    if it says AM on your contract say that is what you signed for and you cant do the evenings.

    as for overtime we're not allowed to do over 50 hours if we're on a new contract, if you're on an old contract no more than 39 hours cos after that you get time + a half. money saving measures and all

    Hi all,

    Had my interview at sainsburys today (DVD and a 1on1).

    i think it went really well , the 1 on 1 was very easy but im really unsure on the DVD

    From experience do you know how much you need to get on the test to pass?..i think i may have messed up the customer service bit of it and feel that if i didnt pass i must be a bit of an idiot ahah!

    Any help appreicated

    regards,

    My brother said their store had made £3k and they phoned up somewhere to request more stock. They were told not to be too pleased with their selves - some place up north made something like £43k! :eek:

    I was wondering whether it's possible to swap shifts with someone, is that 'allowed'? I really need a day off in December and they've told me to write a letter to the store manager, but since i'm quire new I don't want to do that!

    I'm looking at applying for a price controller job at sains. The ad says that one week in 3 will require one night shift, does anyone know what kinda time this shift will be like? I'm presuming its for some sort of promo changeover stuff (I do virtually the same job atm for another supermarket, minus the night shift)

    No, you will only be interviewed for the hours you have applied for and won't be able to take the hours from that other position as they would have already have started accepting new applications. Why don't you withdraw the first one you applied for and apply for the new one.

    just ask for overtime. that way you aren't contracted to do that extra shift

    First time, it took nearly 2 weeks and I received an email rejection. Later I received a job offer via phone call and email [about a week after the rejection].

    Not sure why I didn't get a text, as I got a text about the interview...

    I work as a admin assistant, its mostly doing a missing ticket walk, putting increases out during the day and putting decreases out at night then using a handset/scanner to confirm all the tickets that you had to put out. Also doing all the advertising you see in the store.
