    im not going to bother im sure you dont have to be over a certain age to buy a U dvd
    yeah i dunno to this day why it happened. i was alone (18 at the time) buying a PG dvd. they checked my ID and it was fine so clearly buying a PG at 18 is allowed, lol.. but i dunno why i got ID'd, i look quite young but how young do you have to be to buy a PG??
    when i asked this at my induction i got a vague answer n i still dont understand.:confused:

    I got attacked by a crazy Lady yesterday!
    She was with her partner and she was INSISTING that she paid by cash, but he wanted to swipe his Nectar Card for the points.
    She thought the nectar card was a credit card and that he was trying to pay, and started fighting him to get the card out of his hand. He passed it to me and I tried to just quickly scan it but she grabbed my wrists and wrenched the card out of my hand shouting "NOOO! NOOOO!"

    Oh my god it was terrifying!

    I suppose so, but I didn't want to make it into a massive deal, I only had 20 minutes left until the end of my contract! She wasn't being aggressively hostile, it was just like a crazy playfight between a couple arguing over who paid.... was just a bit weird to get the cashier involved!!!

    i had an email (like an automated one from the online recruitment dept) about 5-6 days after my interview. i think sometimes they telephone as well because you might not check your emails. but the email tells you to call the recruitment line to confirm you accept the job offer and i did that straight away. they also tell you when you phone, the dates of your induction.

    i think i had my interview on a thursday too... and got my email the following wednesday if i remember rightly. good luck

    I was woken up by a text telling me I had the job I had my interview on the Wednesday, got the text Friday morning and had my induction on the Tuesday. Now I feel like I've been there for ages, but it's only been about 4 weeks!

    What is making you want to quit anyways? The money on nightshift must be fairly good.
    Could always see if you can swap to dayshift if its the hours that are the problem.

    1) If a guy comes in with his gf to buy alcohol even if its one can of fosters or something..and he is the one purchasing it and looks under 25, I know I gotta ID him but what about his gf?
    And just say he looked over 25 but his gf didnt do I ID the gf in that situation as well?

    According to Sainsbury's rules, you are meant to ID the girl, but common sense should be applied.

    2) Even if someone buys a 12A dvd or 15 and they clearly are over that age limit but look under 25 DO I STILL ID THEM?

    Again, according to the rules, you are meant to ID them, but AGAIN, common sense should be used.

    3) Proxy sale only applied to alcohol right?

    No.

    4) How do you check how many points someone on the nectar has?

    On the till press "Menu" and then press "Points Balance" and swipe their card.

    5) If you served someone and they went and came back a minute later with the reciept and their change in their hand and said you gave them a dodgey pound coin (which btw is dodgey) to you swap it or tell em to go to CSD? or what?

    Tell them to go to the CSD. If you knew it was dodgy before you handed it over why did you give it to them?

    6)how do u put money on gift cards

    On cards that have already been used, press gift card on the till, then press top-up and enter the amount then swipe the card.

    7)just say you press enter which takes you to tender mode how do you get back to normal

    Press Cancel/No twice.

    8) if a customer asks is this on offer (say buy 1 get 1 free) how do I check

    Scan it twice, then total up (Some offers don't come up until you total it up.

    FINAL Q..how do you do price enquiry

    Press the Price Enquiery button.
