    Thanks, just wondering what the procedure is when you do leave

    I.E do you just hand in your notice to your manager or do you have to discuss it with your manager before you hand in the notice. Sainsbury's was my first job so I'm clueless haha

    One of my friends has recently done it. Apparently you are meant to do the dvd test, but it's a harder manager version - there are 3 versions - normal colleague, team leader, and manager. Then there's a more formal interview part as well.

    I've had a department manager trainee interview in December didn't have a Dvd test. Consisted of a few competency based questions, then a task involving creating a 2 month plan for starting in a new department and a role play. Didn't get the role but was offered another job didn't accept it but had my details passed on to another store where I've got a job as team leader in training

    apparently they sacked 7 people last week. that is quite worrying considering we don't have a large workforce anyway. last night we had to leave 6 fresh sections and 3 grocery ones cos we didn't have enough people :/ i know they are hiring again for my shift though so hopefully we get some more soon. we have an average of 5 people a night which is stupid.

    The other night I did the same work that 2-3 people usually do, ridiculous. Felt like writing to the store manager because he simply doesn't appreciate the sort of effort we put in, completely ignored while the team leader gets the pats on the back

    that's what it's like for night shift ! i used to work really hard now i can't be bothered, it's not like they show any appreciation for it. why should i hurt myself (and i often do) just so they can have all their work done, they can do some for a change.

    My region are having a competyition to see which store can sell the most, and the store that does will be given 2 of the new DS's to be given to the people that push sales. I want this DS, but im not spending £120 on it. So I've been putting tannoys out every 15 minutes with the same thing I checked to see how many deposits where sold and since last wednesday we have only sold 3

    Its not allowed. If they find out, you could lose your job. Its apparantly in the contract somewhere (so i've been told!)

    I think its all to do with the competition between JS & the competitors. Can see where they are coming from, but 9 out of 10 people working for 2 different companies are probably only doing it to make money!
