I went through the rigors of their interview process. I got there and saw interviewers who probably got there through people they know and now have the opportunity to pose as managers. They collected all my details, with no intelligent questions and did not get back to me. The positions are still vacant, the operations manager kept dodging my calls. They put people thy know ther and have the gots to bring you in for an interiew, I passed the 2 phases an went for the last phase only to be asked funny questions with the two boy managers obviously not knowing what they were doing. I ask that the head quarters of Sainsbury's to get people who know what it is to pass an interview to interview paople and not just bi=oys who are there through those they know

They require security background checks as you are working with a lot of money. It takes a few days to a few weeks for background checks to be completed

Since the restructure back in June the management haven't got a clue on how to do their job and then they take it out on the staff. The management are also lazy and just sit in the office with their phones out organising their social lives whilst having the cheek to tell staff they need to do more work. There is also a US vs THEM mentality amongst the management team. The work relationship with management is very cold now. Company-wise they are culturally aligning themselves up towards the Walmart way of managing staff for example, they will misuse CCTV to spy on staff to see how long it takes you to work an aisle or how many times you go to the toilet. The stores are looking shabby with empty shelves because of a lack of staff and morale is very low across the store. I have also noticed an increase in customer abuse lately especially down on checkouts where queues can get quite large with only two people on a checkout due to lack of staff and some staff.
