    Doesn't it! I always seem to do it, I have to try hard not to swear, I just do it without realising sometimes.



    The roll cages..... I always get shocked by them, so much so that I now touch them slowly so it doesn't hurt as much.
    Ahh, this is so annoying lol, Although i have found out a way of not getting shocked. Put both feet on the roll cage so you're not touching the floor and then touch it and jump back off it :lol: :yep:. bit hard to do if there is stuff on it and i suppose you'd look like a moron jumpin on and off cages during the day, ahh The joys of working nights lol.


    EDIT: sorry for the double post.

    I've only been working at sainsbury's long enough to have been paid just the once but I realised they didn't pay me for my training. Have they done it on purpose (does it generally get paid at a later date?) or do I need to speak to someone?
    Did you have training a week before the last week before payday? If so, then you won't be paid until next month.

    Do you pull them by the blue strap? Thats why ive noticed i get all charged with electric! Ive started to make sure i'm holding onto a part of the metal so it stops shocking me.
    It's funnier when you know t's charged up with static and you get a customer touching it when asking you a question.

    The main reason for the shocks is the plastic packing.....when u rub ur hands with the plastic for sometime and touch the metal You get a small shock....I still remember my Physics lessons lol Now I had seen them practically at sainsburys

    I hate the shocks from the roll cages. I understand why some of the nightshift wear gloves now. Theres also one that has a flat wheel so it just drags along the floor but the person that loads them up with the deliveries can never put something light like toilet roll on it, oh no they have to put the heaviest things they can find on it so its a right pain dragging it out.
    I think the gloves are also to stop the workers from slitting their fingers open on all the bloody boxes we have to open on a 10 hour shift. I don't have gloves and my hands are absolutely mauled!

    We had our RGIS yesterday, so our backdressing everything was a load of fun, and cleaning up the store last night took ages -.-.

    I wear gloves because handling, ripping at and opening hundreds of boxes and lots of packaging both really dries out your skin to the texture of paper, and results in several paper cuts per night. Not wearing gloves is just torture!
    I find that it's the older bronze coloured roll cages that give shocks: I've generally been ok with the newer looking silver ones, and can't remember having been shocked by them.

    I would speak to them about it, I got it on my first pay day.

    I have no idea if I was paid for inductions. I really should have a look back at the payslip. By the time they have short timed you for no reason whatsoever & taken off tax they shouldn't have (the tax bit didn't happen to me thankfully) I expect they have confuddled you enough to not give a damn really! lol Clever!

    I usually work 1:30 to 6:30 on Mondays but there was a sign in my store saying that it will be open 9-6 on bank holiday monday. What happens to my hours? Do I even HAVE to work on a bank holiday? (not that I particularly mind to be honest... especially if I get paid more)

    What usually happens, at least in my store, is that your shift is automatically moved forward, so instead of half one til half six, you'll be working one til six. Best double check with someone though.
