    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)
    afaik, for bank holidays, or days when the store is closed (and you're contracted to work) you'll have a 'Bank Holiday Entitlement' as part of your holiday pay.

    In such cases, you'll need to have booked off the 30mins to ensure you get paid (and not short-timed, which I believe ultimately happens).

    However, as it's only 30mins, chances are you'll be asked to come in earlier.

    In any case, I would get this confirmed by your line manager. :yep: (if you can get the 30mins back, you'll get a full hour on bank holiday pay)

    it varies substantially between store and then even more substantially within a store.
    I applied and was intraining within one week but others on my training applied 2 months before.
    Theres no way of knowing.

    I guess it depends of how urgently they need staff but I got an email and text inviting me to book an interview within 2 days of completing the online form and then about 1 day after my interview I was told I was being offered the job by the text and email.

    Hmm...I don't know if this will help or not but all Sainsbury's recruitment is worked on the results of the test. You either fall into three categories - Pass (Insta Job), Borderline (They evaluate you on how you acted and how you compare to others) and Fail (Insta rejection). More than likely you gave a stellar interview but were let down by the test.

    Yeah, but i don't think people are that keen to search through over 40 pages of a thread tbh. I actually did take a look at a couple of pages but never saw an answer.

    Now i'm really confused about working bank holiday monday, my contract hours are 5.30-9, i was assuming we were open until 11, but i'm guessing we'll shut earlier thinking about... So do i turn up for half an hour then go after the store has closed?

    Also, what happens if you forget to clock out? Because i think i might still be clocked in... :/
