    Yeah payday next week. Doesn't feel like it should be after a fortnight off, but I ain't complaining :p: I need the money, that's for sure.

    iirc, it'll be the standard thirty-day notice. If you haven't already, you may wish to consider using your holidays up. Because I'm not too sure of the policy on whether you'll be paid them in your final wage. :confused:

    As for the discount card. It depends (somewhat). I left earlier this year and wasn't asked to return it. However, I had a standard letter from Shared Services (central HR) advising that I would have to return it as it is Sainsbury's property. But I haven't returned it and nothing has come of it. :p:

    I'm not sure if there is a deactivation period (cause presumably the discount isn't for life and only for the term of employment) but mine still works! :yep:

    There seems to be a special site they are using. Go on the Sun Employment site and find sainsbury's on it and it will give you a link. It wasn't fully up and running the other they are meant to start advertising through it sometime this month.

    I got the job at Sainsburys!! I need to call them in the next 24 hrs to confirm employment.... I hope the top I ordered is big enough (size small :eek: )

    If the trousers do not fit me yet (I am losing weight but and was not completely sure of my waist size) will they let me wear my own trousers or something?

    I GOT THE JOB TOO! I've just confirmed my employment over the phone

    I was worried about the trousers too. Are they a small size, or a big size? I'm usually different sizes in trousers. Lol!

    I'm really excited I have my induction next Saturday and Sunday, 8-6!

    The tops are quite big... I asked for a large and the woman in HR just looked at me and said "You might as well come in draped in curtains if you're gonna ask me for a large one of them!"

    I'm quite tall. Ahh sounds like they make the uniform for fat people. :yep:

    Sooooooooo I had to 'settle' for a medium. Which I still don't have... my fleece jacket thingy. Yay for limited resources. :woo:

    Yeh that'll be fine. Just make sure they are black. I binned the Sainsburys trousers when I had a clear out a few weeks ago, hope they dont ask for them back when I leave
    Well done by the way x

    LOL the same happened to me! I got told to order medium top, I wear a fleece, cant be doing with those zip up things, yet I really needed a large! She said because they are unisex they come up big, do they eck! I'm a size 12 in everyday clothes yet I would say a small top is about a 10. I put in for a large last week as ive put up with it for nearly a year now.. We will see how long it takes for me to get another one. My name isn't on the board yet to collect :rolleyes:

    On the notice board where all the shifts are for all the colleagues, my name isn't on there for checkouts and I have worked there for 5 weeks. I remember at my old job they normally put the shifts up in bulk, like 2-3 weeks in one go or something but I just want to be able to see my name, see my shifts and see when my holidays are.

    Lol, lucky. I don't get that. I think they want me over xmas as well.

    When do you have your induction? I feel bad. Only 2 people went for this job... poor other person.

    The trousers are AWFUL. I am usually a size 12 in trousers but they are so tight at the top I went for a 14, but the 14 is massive. I've just been wearing my own trousers, and everyone else seems to as well.

    Everything else is massive, though. I have a small in everything and it's too big!
