    i was exactly the same, and in my experience it did get better. It took a while to to be 100% confident with everything and find out where everything is so once I had that sorted I was a lot more comfortable, also once you've made friends its is a million times better!
    ahh thank you! thats encouraging lol i was seriously considering quitting the job already

    The night shift where I am are usually running around after the store opens to clear everything away.

    Which leads me to another point. We're told to only have chilled stuff out for 30 minutes. Yet the night shift seem to ignore this.
    The chilled stuff comes in frozen so they can do that.

    Good luck. I had to phone in sick once when my shift started at 7am, I started phoning at 4am and finally got through a 6:45am. :rolleyes: I didn't get told off as it wasn't my fault no one was manning the phones! I was panicking though
    We don't have to talk to anybody when we phone in sick. We just leave a message on the answerphone, which I thought they had to do so that they had a permanent audio record.

    Depends what department you work in, who you work with, and how badly you need the money.

    Really, once you've made some friends, if you're doing an easy-ish job, you can make it pretty fun.

    Online. Apart from the early starts it's the easiest job in Sainsburys tbh.

    It is quite funny - in an extremely despairing way.....
    Regardless of what you think of the company, they are still your employer, and they have rules about how to conduct yourself on the internet - especially when it specifically relates to the company. If anyone from your store saw the post above and reported it to your manager you may be liable to disciplinary action. I recommend you remove the content of that post :P Edit: that seems stroppy, but it wasn't intended to be. Just pre-warning you :P

    In reality it means it's either waiting to be looked at (most likely) or they're reading it right now (unlikely). A decision will come shortly enough, don't worry.

    Please can anybody advise me on holiday pay. I've still got 50 hours to use up for this year. Basically I know nothing about holiday pay, how much is it? Also, could I book it some of it off but still work and get paid more for it?

    Thanks

    holiday pay is the same as your usual pay. you might be able to work it if they are short staffed or something,but is pretty unlikely, ask your manager!
