    Quick question. If you get offered a job and accept it, can then later decline you the job if they receive a bad reference?

    Hey everyone! Just a quick question

    I applied to my local Sainsbury's on Fri 18th there and was just curious to find out how long it generally takes to get a reply?

    Thanks.

    Definately yes. It happened to my bro. Sainsburys state it in the small print somewhere too....you've been offered the job, subject to references..
    (& also if you failed to mention a CCJ or something like that. That might not apply to Sainsburys though, I dont think they check that)

    There really isn't anything special to think about before you start. Just arrive on time and introduce yourself. The team leaders will then set up an account for you and you'll go with another shopper for your first shift.

    If you have any questions after tomorrow, I'll answer them :p:

    Cool, it will go real quick. Whats your hours?
    You wont need any tips really, online shopping is a piece of p lol
    You will find your own way around it once someone has shown you the ropes. We all have our own little foibles! I like to pack the bags as I go along, others leave it all til the end then pack them.
    Only thing I will say is always double check your tote labelling. Its a nightmare if someones put the wrong lane or time on one.
    That will make more sense once you get into it tomorrow.
    Good luck.

    they may or may not, you have given them notice and they will be able to find someone to do your hours, but then as they are three in a row you may have problems there, just ask whom ever is in charge of that kind of thing in your branch.

    hmm i hope so, it is like 6 weeks notice. well tbh on satudays i usually do 12-7, and the thing that i need to do is only until 1 all 3 saturdays, so technically i could do 2-7 if they have a problem, then its only 2 hours a week that they need to cover me for.

    There should be no problem if you tell them about it now. You have a poorly run department if there is :P

    hi all, i need to book some saturdays off for something important, it will be sat at the end of oct, then 2 in november. thats 3 in a row... will they let me do this??
    I doubt anyone on here could answer that, unless they could see the holiday book of your dept! lol How many, if any, have already booked that day off. Would be a bit of a mess if they had loads off on a holiday the same day.

    Shame she didnt tell me what the 2 parts actually were..

    I found the customer service part really difficult to answer :tongue: Mainly because I wanted to put what *I* would do, and I knew I should put what *Sainsbury's* wanted me to do...
