    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 worked at Sainsbury's Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice job really shame pay so bad . Would have rated higher otherwise. They need to pay their staff better and they will retain them .

    Cons

    Absolutely awful pay. Slightly above minimum wage and that was only because I was a delivery driver. A whole 50p an hour more for that lol.

    Advice to Management

    Just concentrate on the the job and not trivial things like ringing the doorbell more than once to get into the compound and issuing warnings to staff ....... That was funny!

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

    Pros

    Nice, open minded people, good salary and some good benefits like 10% off Sainbury's and Argos.

    Cons

    HR department is rather disorganised, only got my uniform the day before going off probation period and starting properly. Even then my manager had to chase them up for it.

    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
