    ARRH, i just got the job and been here a few weeks, i seriosuly hate working on the checkout, since i've had about 5 weird old guys, either stalking me or giving me weird comments, one who looks about 80 actually comes in twice a day and stares and tells me im hot. i've never had this before in any other workplace, do all female checkout people havve to endure this?

    I didnt even get past the questionnaire stage this time.. Even though i answered the same as my last time.

    hmmmmm

    EDIT: Oh, it says 'Position already filled' on the job section. Does that mean what they told me on the email about someone else better fitting got in, or someone had got the job that had already worked there? oh or maybe it ment someone had already gone for an interview whilst i was applying.

    Oh its letting me apply for another position

    To be fair, they should really contact the other candidate, and if they cant contact them, let someone else have thier spot.

    I would be pretty annoyed too. I'm surprised they've given the candidate this long, it's usually ~48hrs (or something) that the email says you should contact them within.

    It's either an incredibly good candidate (on paper) and thus, they're holding out for them, or there is something else going on.

    I think its because to start with Sainsburys never contacted me after I passed the online test and I had to phone them so they probably never contacted the other candidate either !
