    I have been working at J Sainsbury part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Was taken on as a xmas temp in 2018, and so so lucky to be kept on. Cannot fault the place at all, great management, all muck in, as they say, and the colleagues are so friendly and I do look forward to being with them., same with the Customers who are all, without fail, really friendly. I work on Produce (the first port of call with the cusomers) and on chilled fresh foods too. I am so lucky to have found this job. Great overtime availablity too, if you want any. Always plenty to do, and the management are very trusting with us taking our breaks, and therefore I respect them for this, and never over exceed break time, which can also be split into two, if required. Pay is amazing, discount card too, and if you do your work and care, you will always be happy there.

    Cons

    Non really, no problems, I live far away, Haydock, so shame about the distance, takes up to an hour to get there, but would not change it for the world.
