    Help.

    What's the rule with working after store closes? I work 6-10pm Tuesdays and 12-8pm on Sundays but I usually end up clocking out at 10 past the hour, do we get paid for it or not? I suspect the answer is no, if so what can be done about it?

    Second question which is sort of related to the first. I'm in a fairly small store within a shopping centre, we don't do any "store is closing in 15, 10, 5 minutes" stuff and I'm wondering is this common at JS? It irritates staff and an old manager banned it because it "annoys customers" plus the new management don't seem to be too fussed about putting out a call either.

    Almost every other shop I go into they do a closing announcement, is it just my store that choose not to or is more widespread across the company?

    It's the little things that annoy me about Sainsbury's.
    I've worked passed my time a few times but never been paid for it. Others have had the same problem. Normally I leave asap when I am due to finish, but sometimes you get caught up still serving customers etc.

    My store only makes announcements on Sundays, because of the trading laws. The rest of the time, they don't. Plus, they don't lock the doors until we actually close - rather than say 5 minutes before. It's really annoying on my late shift as we so often have customers still shopping way after we close at 11pm.

    It will be in your contract that you signed when you started that you may have to work on departments other than your own to support the needs of the business.

    What's so wrong with working on Checkouts? It's not like you have to be on them all the time.

    Working on the shop floor you probably will be. Last year we were all told we would be till trained but because of the hours we work (online shopping, so early mornings) it never happened... thankfully.

    We were told that they wanted the staff all "multi-trained" which of course i have no problem with, i am happy enough to be trained on Online shopping or trolley collection, but being forced to do checkout training when i was told in my induction day i didn't need it is a smack in the face.

    Unfortunately your contract will have 'flexi' written all over it which means they can train you for anything.

    One girl at our place who didn't enjoy it made out that she was totally incompetent at using the checkouts and they said she didn't have to work on them. Failing that just do a really **** job meeting MCM requirements and stuff and they'll soon take you off.

    Normally I don't advise people to do a half arsed job but if you aren't going to be happy when you're on the tills you aren't going to be giving good customer service which may eventually reduce the stores bonus at the end of the year through failing MCM.

    yep thats my advice, just go retardedly slow, each and every item spin it around a few times "looking for a barcode" and take your time doing fruit and veg

    Why all the checkout hate lol? The only thing I don't like is that you are 'trapped' on the checkout but other than that, I quite like it. Some customers are lovely and you can have nice chin-wags.

    Having worked on produce, GM, grocery, in the cafe kitchen and the clothing sections, checkouts is probably my 'favourite'. Although, a bit of variety is always nice.

    The one risk of this strategy is that you could be performance managed out of a job!

    we normally get them at 15, 10, 5 mins and then when the store actually closes telling customers to basically move their backside or we'll do it for them
