    I'm handing in my notice next week! After two years (just! June 5th...) I have officially had enough of Sainsbury's. Along with being offered a far more enjoyable job, I'm sick to death of the store :L my store manager is really, really creepy, and customers seem to be getting worse. Ahaa.

    For those who handed in notice to quit, if I told them I was quitting on July 3rd, would July 30th be my last day (4 weeks). Someone on this thread wrote that 31st would be the last day, buts that's 4 weeks and 1 day? I always though it was 4 weeks notice, so shouldn't July 30th be my last day?

    Thanks

    One day really doesn't make a difference tbh.

    One day could make a difference if you really hate working there.

    I actually enjoy my work and my department, it just sucks on the Saturday night when I'm doing an 8 hour shift and for 6 of those I basically sit in the office counting elastic bands.

    Also, if you REALLY want to leave, you can leave pretty much straight away. I've known two people in the last few months that have got new jobs that they wanted to start within the week, they went to our store manager and he said it was fine, and they could leave whenever they wanted so they did like a weeks notice rather than four weeks, so I'm sure this could be the case at other stores if you really want to leave straight away?

    We got MACed as I was leaving yesterday. Noticed as that several gaps had appeared in places that i had just filled half an hour ago so not looking foward to going in today. MAC always puts my manager in a mood even if we do good.

    You only really need to serve the notice if you want to get a good reference at the end of it. If you already have another job and you don't need a reference you can just walk out. Technically Sainsburys could go after you for breaching your contract but that's expensive so they're unlikely to bother.

    You don't have to work for 3 months or longer before you can quit. In fact the first three months are a probationary period, so I don't think you even have to give the four weeks notice.

    Quick question; is it just my store or do you guys get some customers that you really wish would have a wash and use deoderant once in a while?! We have a couple of regulars that I kid you not, I hold my breath for in fear of gagging. Ew.
