    the cut off is the date when any hours you've worked after that date are paid in the next pay day after the one coming up.
    having read that ^^^ i'm not sure it makes enough sense, so heres a nice example.
    our next pay day is the 3rd dec, the cut off is 27th nov, so any hours you worked after 27th will not be paid to you in the pay package on the 3rd but the next one which would be on 31st dec.

    good news people, i just got my tax refund £1685.75,:hoppy:
    thanks

    Guys, many thanks to all those who have contributed in this thread.

    I had the interview and was told by the manager that he thought I was in excess to what he had interviewed before and would like to offer a part time permanent role as opposed to just a part time temporary(General Assistant). I played along and got the phone call from recruitment yesterday confirming my new role and usual induction information. Fair play to the Manager at the interview, as he stood by his word and said there would be over time for me too!
    Once again, thanks for your support!

    Just thinking ahead, I need your help again please. For my CV, what 3 bullet points should I write to summarise this role, as I will still be applying to get back on track with my career.

    I have 2 for starters that show customer service, and team working. The 2nd one is creative freedom to a degree!
    What could be the last one?

    • Delivering exceptional customer service, by assisting customers with their enquiries and maintaining a clean and efficient environment.
    • To act as a mentor and provide support to seasonal employees who may need additional guidance and on the job training

    dudes, does anyknow know how it works on the sainsburys recruitment website when you apply for a job as an ex employee? there is a different button to press if you have worked for sainsburys before, but i was wondering what this means in terms of do you jump the queue to be interviewed, do you have to do induction again?
    my mate who left sainsburys a few weeks ago wants to come back and is gonna apply this way when the right vacancy comes up and we wanted to just know how it works a bit of anyone knows. ta. really want him back! he left on good terms.

    I don't know if anyones going to know an answer to this but its worth an ask ...

    If your an xmas temp, when are you likely to know if they want to keep you on after xmas? Is it going to be a few weeks before your contract ends or do they let your contract end then ask you back and you go through the induction process again :confused:

    Sitting down, leaning forward and picking up items puts more load on your spine than standing up or lying down. You should really be taught proper posture and technique for sitting down working at tills. The bending and twisting motions are absolutely lethal over time.

    Standing isn't all good. I just did a 6h30m shift on the self checkouts. My legs are killing me from standing up/walking around so long lol.

    When I first started nights, standing up for 10 hours (well ok, 9 hours, cos of the two breaks) really did kill my legs and it still does to an extent but it;s a wonder what some comfy shoes can do!!

    theres a lot to be said for comfy shoes in any role at sainsburys!! biggest mistake i made for the first few weeks was wearing bad shoes... online shopper, constantly on feet, walkin prob miles every shift round the store at a fast pace... found on my days off i could actually barely walk!! soo much pain in my feet, legs, back. then i got some diff shoes (invested in some good quality black trainers which dont show under my trousers) and since then its been a lot better. did under-estimate how physical the online shopper role is, not only with all the time on your feet runnin around the shop but also a lot of heavy lifting of the totes.. saving me a fortune at the gym!

    My personal motto... why go to the gym when you could just do crisps and cereals at Sainsbury's? :tongue: (I really struggle with cereal hmph)
