    I don't know what (if any) of the measures our store has passed this year... I know we were close to failing after the second to last period but that's all

    Ditto to not knowing if the store is getting the bonus. No one has mentioned it at all.

    Just wondering - my store opened 6 months into the financial year. Does that affect the bonus at all?

    Easy way i found is to just zone out. Get into a really deep thought about something and just make the basic customer service responses (How many bags did you reuse?, Do you have a nectar card? etc) come naturally. I did a 6 hour shift which seemed to go by in about 1hour 1/2.
    I zone out so much

    I can't see why it would be a problem, especially as the holiday is already booked.
    I just stated the date I was handing in my notice and that I would be finishing exactly four weeks later, with a very brief reason as to why I was resigning. I imagine you could do exactly the same. If you wanted to mention that one of those notice-period weeks were a holiday, you can but it shouldn't make a difference.

    I really wish I could book leave to shortened my notice period time but they wouldn't let me book anything [before I quit] until September! Everything I asked for before then, including my graduation and the day before my biggest exam, they said 'no' to.

    I've still got three weeks to work. A 4 week notice period is really long!

    I agree. At my last job, I only had to give 1 week! 4 weeks is a crazy long time, especially when you - and by 'you' I mean 'me' lol - are only a checkout assistant! Plus, it means that I have to work all through my exams, as I couldn't get any holidays approved. :/

    On the upside, I am getting out at the right time I think. Things are getting worse. Our department manager has now banned overtime and said the department will have to manage on skeletal staff levels as they won't take anyone else on. :confused: Plus, he is waging war against water bottles. It is such a little thing but if you end up on a checkout for 6+ hours, it is really tough on your voice/throat so a sip of water can be really helpful.

    Good luck with this new job. Will it finally mean you can get off silly nights?

    Oh I'll work my notice. Partly for the money, as I am desperately trying to gather some to fund my postgrad next year, but mainly because I want a decent reference and I don't want to drop people in it.

    Of course, I am not ruling out possibly missing my very last shift though. That is the one I desperately wanted off. Knowing me, I will work it but the option not to is there I suppose.

    Start up a short-term business to come up with the funds required?

    A reference from Sainsbury's isn't exactly an amazing reference, whatever they say in it.

    Ok. Just so you know it is an option, there if you want it
