    Discounts not as good as other retail stores (only one card per employee between only 2 people... they check)

    Find people who are good at their jobs, and ask the people they are working with during probation period if they fit in. We work very closely to one another, we have to get along

    I have been working at J Sainsbury part-time

    Pros

    Can have earphones in during hours shop is closed.

    Cons

    Starts at 4am which affects the rest of the day and means you barely get anytime with family/partner if they work a 9-5.

    Don't get a premium for working unsociable hours, we earn the same as day staff.

    Unrealistic targets - really old handsets with constant problems means IPH is frequently just not possible, but management don't take this into account.

    Patronising management/team leaders - threatened with 'we can see everything you do', constantly belittled for not picking fast enough, called back for stupid things like shopping being slightly over tote whch would be quicker to just fix themselves. Always talk to online shoppers like they're stupid.

    Unappreciative managers - get told you're doing overtime 10 mins before end of shift without being told a time you'll be done, don't even get a thanks at the end of it.

    Rubbish breaks - worked over 9 hours with only a 10 minute break because they wouldn't tell in advance how long overtime would be.

    Bad health and safety - when the shop is closed everyone leaves crates, boxes, bits of plastic, spilt milk etc everywhere so you're constantly tripping up.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff!! Lower IPH or fix problems staff tell you about, especially those who have been there for years. Stop patronising non-management staff.

    Tiring and boring- Totes when full are really heavy and it damages your back to twist them around corners of aisles (which you have to do to hit IPH). You just pick up an item, scan it and put it in a box for 4/6 hours straight which is mindnumbing.
