    I worked at Sainsbury's Bank part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I made friends for life here and loved working in a small team. The uniform is really comfy and the highest management really care about you and often ask for feedback. The job is interesting and I learnt a lot.

    Cons

    I came in part-time and ended up working 40 hours with no thanks and often got underpaid. The job is stressful and we were often understaffed so be prepared for customers being unreasonable! My primary line manager didn't care. You are often treated as separate to the rest of the store so it can be lonely when not in peak

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing as you are but keep a closer eye on line management and regularly update their training

    I have been working at Sainsbury's Bank full-time

    Pros

    - flexible working
    - amazing people in the original Argos sites committed and hard working
    - relaxed working environment

    Cons

    - recruiting to tick box’s rather than the best people for roles
    - The bank does not understand the retail side of the business and try and operate independently not integrated
    - lack of stability and consistency at the top

    Advice to Management

    - Understand your people
    - Don’t share your values but not demonstrate them yourselves
    - Ensure the best people are in the correct roles
    - Review your HR support as since this function was moved to Edinburgh there is a no contact or understanding of the people, processes or procedures

    I have been working at Sainsbury's Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fairly relaxed atmosphere, plenty of overtime, looks like you can progress well in this job, hood shift patterns, shifts also given 8 weeks in advance.

    Cons

    Management trained at the same time so they know the same as staff, if not less

    Advice to Management

    More advanced training for team managers so they are able to help get better resolutions for customers
