    I've just heard today that I'm back working at Sainsburys again Do you think they mind that my NI insurance number will be on a sticky note rather than the card? I seem to have misplaced mine <_<
    That'll be fine - we were just asked to write down our NI number - we didn't have to show the card.

    You never need to show the actual card to anyone. It isn't a form of ID. As long as you know the number it's fine.

    Thankfully thats probably true for Sainsburys, although our store wanted a formal letter of proof or you didn't even get the interview. But there's other places that insist on more than just knowing the number. Unfortunately Ive had 2 cards over the years & thats the max the government allow they said. Travelodge said I had to have the card for them to photocopy. I had to get national insurance dept to post me a letter of proof. I used that at Sainsburys when I started working there too. Its to stop illegal foreign workers. Says about it on the Sainsburys recruitment web site :yep:

    Unlucky. Depends if there's another department that wants anyone. Ask the other department managers.

    Yeah our store is taking the TALKBACK very seriously......I used to work in Checkouts and now shifted to HR........now the HR manager and Checkouts manager are arguing for the talkback form........Finally they asked me to fill it up for my fav dept lol........I heard it gives some sort of ratings to the store and stuff like that??? Or maybe the worse dept manager gets sacked???????:yep: :yep: We got a instruction from manager that not to select the "Neither agree or nor disagree" option beacause it means that we dont know what the hell is going on in our store lol.........

    I think i lost out.

    Ive got an email saying '
    While you demonstrated some of the skills we’re looking for, there were other candidates who were a closer match for the role. Therefore, we regret to inform you that we won’t be progressing your application any further on this occasion. ' And the website says im unsuccessful.

    Is this a mistake, or have i actually not gotten any furthur than the interview?
