    i started in october last year and got a bonus of i think £150 this year.

    the amount you get depends on your contracted hours (doesn't include overtime).
    Thnaks for that, my contracted hours are only 12 so im not looking at getting much then lol.

    it depends if your store hits targets, i think you get up to 3%

    1.5% is based on your store's MAC rating and the other 1.5% is MCM.

    thought it was 1% for each factor; store/coporate sales, mcm and mac

    Meh, I seem to get told something different every time I ask :p: We won't be hitting MCM this year, that's for sure.

    A few have already handed in their notice at my new store, despite us being open just a week today!

    It is terribly dull at the moment though. We simply don't have enough customers. I counted up yesterday - in the first hour and a half of my shift, I served 8 people. And, there were only 4 other tills open! :/

    Silly question but did they promote the store + do people know you're there? :tongue:

    We have a total of 15 people for Christmas. God help us. Especially when you consider a lot of the shift are only part time workers!! We don't have any team leaders now either they've all left =/

    It was in the local paper and on the radio. They didn't even mention it on the website until it had already opened though - I thought they might put it on as 'coming soon' or something.

    The main problem is we are less than 3 miles from another Sainsbury's store, whose customers have been using for 20-odd years! Plus, within a 4 mile radius, there are established Morrisons and Asda stores and 6 miles away, there is a Tesco. Our customers are saying there is simply too much competition and whilst they like the layout, wide aisles, customer service etc, we are not competitive on price.

    This week, they cancelled all overtime for the many temps [at least half the staff are temps] and have given many 'forced' holidays, as they are over staffed. Some people have also been sent home mid-shift because there is nothing for them to do... It is making the working atmosphere very tense and people are starting to get annoyed. Understandable really - it takes me an hour to get to work; if they tried to send me home, obviously without pay, mid-way through, I wouldn't be happy. :/

    Are all the Sainsbury's stores going to be open boxing day this year? Mine is, and I'm working because it falls on a Sunday when I usually work. Absolutely gutted.

    I think my store is closed for both christmas day and boxing day but open christmas eve, which is good as i only work saturday and sunday so get both days off. I may be wrong though.

    My store is closed Boxing Day this year. You could try to book it off... It probably won't be that busy on Boxing Day.

    Yeah apparently our store has to open on boxing day because we have a large GM department and we need to open for Jan sales. But you can apparently 'refuse' to work it if you want to; nearly everyone on our meat and fish counter has so that just can't open! I want to ask for it off but I've got to have a couple of weeks off early next year for an operation so I don't really like asking any favours!

    Unless there are restrictions on there operating hours(?) (I know some stores can only trade for a certain amount of hours on certain days due to some church rules or something), most stores will be open Boxing Day. I bet head office/careline staff get the day off though "/

    My manager wants new years eve off but is expecting us to work that night. Erm, no. You want a shift then you had better be there!
