    Any black shoes/'smart' trainers will be fine, unless you're going to be using the trucks/pulling heavy cages, when you'll need steel-toed boots (I can't remember which position you were going for so take your pick :p:)

    Whenever your next shift is

    So my hours are Monday - Wednesday 4-8pm and had my induction Wednesday and Thursday so I was meant to work on the following Monday.

    Forgot to mention that if your job is Customer Service Assistant you might have an extra day where you learn how to use the till OR on your first official shift they may teach you then, depends on the store.

    Uh oh... Guess I'll be wearing my own trousers too. What shoes do most people wear?
    Well I work nights so I guess it's a bit different - I wear boots, and the other guys wear black shoes or trainers even! :eek: We were given safety boots but none of us wear them because we're just stacking shelves.

    I think you can still apply for any position that is not of the same job type, such as if you applied for a general assistant post you can still apply to be on the checkouts.

    If it lets you apply using your existing account you should be fine. Or they could possibly be using a different process altogether for christmas temps in which case you will be fine.

    Many stores that would normally do one to one interviews often do group ones from christmas temps as they have so many applications. So sainsburys might do that and have a different online assessment process.

    You will just have to wait until the jobs go up on the site.

    could of used the steel capped shoes on one occassion, i got one of those cages and started to put the base down, i normally stand on the front of the cage so i can lift the base off the hooks, then i dropped it to crack straight off my toes.

    anyone think sainsbury's is going for a colour change? i have noticed that sel safe stripping are a more reddy colour, and the ladder rack side panels, snowploughs are the same red colour. oh and the new barkers, SB09 RED it is called i believe.

    it's soon gonna be a red sainsbury's.

    I was catching up on store gossip with the other counter people and they had the view that the other people in the store hated them, especially the produce girls, is any of this true in your stores? Can anyone shed any light on why?

    Like normal gloves? I kinda like the tills, but chilled should be fine. I have a jumper so I shouldn't be too cold. I think I'm just stacking.

    Where do you work?

    Not necessarily, sometimes they can take a while. But either way, whether you're successful - or not, you'll be informed either via email, or txt.
