    Can someone please explain the grade system in use in Sainsbury's stores. I'm talking about the 'rank' grades, such as C5, C6 etc. What grade applies to each position? Are the higher numbers further up the store structure or are the lower numbers further up?

    The job i'm starting in September is either C5 or C6 (I can't remember off the top of my head). What sort of job title does this equate to?

    I've never heard of that grading, only pay "bands" The standard band is Band 2, Team Leaders is Band 3. Managers get more. Where have you heard C5/C6 from?

    On my contract it mentions that my pay grade will either be C5 or C6 (I can't remember which). So perhaps the letter C just means stores and the 5 or 6 is the pay grade... would that make sense?

    If so, what would a pay grade of 5 or 6 be the same as (e.g. supervisor, department manager etc).

    wow... seriously, have mine lol. they keep putting me down for loads of overtime on the schedule and i don't want it!! I work in a small town centre store!! lol. only on a 12 hr contract, every week that i've been there since i started in mid july has been between 20-35 hrs a week.
    I got put to do overtime once during my study leave. I didn't ask for it, they didn't ask if I wanted it, no one actually told me about it. And then there wasn't enough work for 3 of us to do, so I got put sorting out bits of board and such, then spent half the day on a checkout when I could have been revising for the six exams I had the in the next week. No one understands why I've refused most overtime since for some reason... :p:

    Band 6 is the highest you can go in store, and that's a Store Manager. I think you'd know if you were doing that job lol.

    Ok fair enough. So it is a Department Manager's sort of salary? ( I assume checkouts is classed as a department? ).

    No need to laugh about the Checkout Manager thing - I'm a good guy... you would love me if I happened to be your CM!

    on second thoughts, you would have to atually have previous experience at sainsburys, so I'd doubt you'd be checkout manager.
    more like a member of price control maybe :/

    I don't quite see how you've managed to be appointed as a department manager without being aware of it. You must have applied for a specific role.

    Obviously I applied to a specific job... I'm starting the Graduate Retail Scheme in a few weeks. I was just curious what role the pay grade was equivalent to as the pay grade system hasn't been explained as of yet.

    Ah that makes sense now. However I've no idea how pay works for that scheme so I guess you'll have to find out when you start. If you get paid an hourly rate then that should be on your contract as well. If its a set salary then I don't know where that would be displayed - logically it should be on your contract as well but maybe not lol.

    Damn, I failed the DVD test. Apparently I did well in the interview and they were surprised I failed the test.
