    Hello Everyone !

    I attended for Sainsburys interview for General assistant post at Emerson's green , Bristol , night shift and weekly 20hrs , the interview went very well which happened on May 7th at 9.30 pm , but i haven't heard anything from them till now ?

    I and my other friend together attended the interview for the same post and same shift , but none of us got any reply ?

    What are the chances of getting job in my case ?

    Shall i give them a call ?

    Advance thanks for any suggestions !
    You could give them a call but I wouldn't panic. Took them two weeks before they got in touch with me.

    Officially I think the booklet says plain studs only. But, I wear studs with gem stones in and no one has passed comment. And, quite a few of the women wear small hooped earrings.

    Aside from working so much in the meantime, it is so cool that you are finally getting off the night shift. Having a finish date is also a very good feeling. June 4th can't come quick enough for me lol!

    I've already voiced my thoughts on the notice period lol. I really wish it wasn't so long. It is a bit of a drag!

    You should be. Holiday runs April to March, and you get roughly 1 week of holiday per 2 months. So, if you haven't taken any since April, you should have at least 1 week to take or be paid.

    Sadly, I used my 1 week [or 12 hours as it is in my case] up over the Royal Wedding weekend [just because I wanted to go home for a bit]. If I were to take any more now, they would dock my wages to make up for it. Plus, they won't actually let me take anything as someone has overbooked the holidays by over 100 hours this month. Eeck.

    I HATE working on fresh. It's impossible to go into work without the currys or soups leaking on me.

    What happens at the end of the probation period? I've been working for 3 months, and haven't had a single review yet

    I didn't have a review until I had been working there over 4 months. That review ended up being me filling in a form about how I felt - as if it were 4 weeks into my employment - and another as if it were 11 weeks. That was all. No discussion or anything.

    So, I certainly wouldn't worry about it.

    try working homebake, its leaks galore! flour everywhere, flippin syrup and juice as well

    actually i think yoghurs are worse than readymeals cos the yoghurts have the tendency to split open. madagascan custard, you smell lovely and all but having you all over my legs wasn't pleasant.

    going to hand in my notice today :eek3:
