    I see you're from Co.Armagh. Are you in the city?

    1: Generally you see the manager of the department you want the overtime in. Sometimes they'll ask you though, so you don't always have to find them.

    2: You're not supposed to do over 39 hours a week.

    3: I think you can apply when there's a vacancy, not sure though.

    4: Don't know about this one.

    5: We're getting paid this Friday, next one is 4 weeks after that. I think it used to work out as the last Friday of the month, but it doesn't anymore.
    Thanks for the info... I'm just outside the city... you know it?

    earliest you can get them is on wednesdays i believe, your dept. manager/team leader will have them if you ask them, that is if HR have handed them out to them.

    I just got offered a job as a restaurant customer assistant, any one work in that department? Is it good?

    Also how easy is it to get more jobs within sainsburys, i.e to make a full working week? And how soon after I start should I apply for these roles?
    On a side note its also a bit weird how pay varies from store to store!

    I have a couple of friends who work in the café, so I can only go from what they tell me. That sort of role sees you being constantly busy, either with customers or (more often than not in my friends case) cleaning.

    In terms of getting more roles within Sainsburys, I guess it depends on your store. In my store we are all checkout trained regardless of what department we work in, so there is always opportunity to either do overtime or do contracted hours on the tills. If you talk to your department manager about more roles within the store he/she will be able to help you. And you'll get some brownie points for being so enthusiastic.

    Just got my first payday. I think i got paid correctly. I just calculated Induction 9am-5pm for twodays. then two weekends 14 hrs, 24 & 25th Sept, 1 & 2 October and it's like £40 short. I did forget to clock in on one of the induction days but my trainer said it should be fine, I was also late on the 25th by an hour because of my bus diverted/stopped running and because i work super early hours, it was the moment when nightbuses stopped running and normal buses hadn't started running. (I've moved into my Uni house, it's only a 5 min walk now) But don't they just take away the 1hr you missed? £40 is a lot ....Thoughts? Who should i talk to about this?

    The cut-off is the Saturday before pay day. You'll be paid for the work you do from the Sunday onwards in the following month's wage.

    It's £4.89/h for a 17-year-old, unless you've been working for Sainsbury's for over six months, in which case it's £6.54/h. You should be given your pay slip by a team leader or somebody. If they don't give it to you then just ask for it.

    Best to fill in a wage query form and hand it in to HR so they can investigate.

    I was underpaid by 6.5 hours once, and handed a wage query form to HR. They said it was because the clocking in and out machine wasn't working.

    I got paid the 6.5 hours on the next pay slip.

    I got my last pay today and it seems to be short by a fair bit. How do I submit a wage query given I have finished?

    Hoping my Payslip may shed some light on it.
