    If your on the old Savacentre contract. Yes.

    For most, its just 1.0 for overtime and the premium.
    I only started working at Sainsbury's 6 months ago, and I work part time? Will I get any extra pay at all then, or is it just standard pay for every hour?

    Local's dont get no premium what so ever, i dont understand why that is... sainsburys should be sainsburys in all their stores
    Really? This is awful, I was only happy to work tomorrow thinking I'd be getting premium.

    The premium is something like just over £1 an hour I think. That's what I was told on Friday anyway but no one seems to know for definite.

    I don't think anyone's mentioned this yet - but on the Friday, our store is letting us wear something red or blue in 'celebration' of the Royal Wedding. Anyone else have this going on? I'm not in love with the idea of wearing a "It could have been me!" top so I think I'll be a spoilsport and not bother.

    I had to take over 6 cages of Easter eggs to the petrol station at 12am on Saturday night. :l

    I was not impressed. The carpark was pitch black and actually really scary.

    :eek: Could you BE any less-patriotic?!

    The crown idea sounds a lot better.. still silly, but better than a cheesy top!

    Don't worry! I'll be sat in a german pub watching it on the tv and wearing my union jack socks and maybe I'll convert my old bakery hat into a crown just for the hell of it!

    Here's a question for you all: What department would you most like to work on and least want to work on? (excluding your own of course)


    I quite fancy a shot on Produce or something, just a change of scenery really instead of the same old stuff on Checkouts.

    I don't think I would want to work in the Bakery though, as I would mess everything up

    haha, i love the bakery, its alot easy than people think + you get to listen to music all day and have a chat with each other.
    I did a 5 hour shift on checkouts yesterday and can say that is my worst department. Its quite repetitive and gave me slight back pain, also some customers are just terribley rude

    Unlikely if you've only just been at Sainsburys long enough to get a discount card. You'll need to speak directly to your store manager. There's no harm is asking, no matter what we say the answer will still be the same.

    I had 8 weeks unpaid leave authorised last summer to go on a placement, the catch being was that it was with Sainsbury's at head office. Theres no harm in writing to your Store Manager directly and see what they say, chances are that they might agree it if you are a good worker and you have a good performance and absence record.

    Sounds like it might be payment for untaken holiday last tax year perhaps?

    Not 100% sure though
