Customer Service Team Leader (Former Employee) – Richmond upon Thames, Greater London – 15 October 2018
Store management wasn't the best and sometimes made decisions that didn't help colleague or customers. extremely stressful as you had no support. the shifts always varied and changed and sometimes you had no notice at all extremely difficult to plan your life around the company.
Excellent pay, fantastic team and great atmosphere.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Whitley Bay, Tyne and Wear – 14 October 2018
During my time working for Sainsburys, I truly learned to love my job and the team I was part of. Granted, some work takes some effort to master but the team are very patient and will balance the customer experience with that of the staff, ensuring all members are happy and confident whilst customers can have a smooth and effective service. Recommend anyone who likes retail work try working with these guys, they're awesome ^.^
Great pay, supportive team.
Certain roles can be tough at first to master, but the team will support you.
Customer Service Adviser (Former Employee) – Falmouth – 14 October 2018
Really flourished in Sainsburys and wasn't to difficult to get to grips with ,long hours though and can be a bit repetitivee at times but great if you just want a job that you can go home and not worry about
I really enjoyed working at sainsburys, it was a fun and productive environment. Most time I would be restocking the shelves or I would be helping customers find their shopping. The management were really fun to work with and they made my short time there enjoyable.

Shop (Former Employee) – High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire – 11 October 2018
Did the job for nearly two years, and really enjoyed at the start and enjoyed the working environment. After a year of working part time their and witnessing all the changes that Sainsbury's were making my opinion changed greatly. The managers treated you like you were below them and wouldn't even acknowledge us, unless they wanted something, even then they seemed to have lost any kind of manners of saying please of thank you. The working environment was then just very negative because of this, and many people left at the same time as myself. Although the money was good, I went home from most shifts in the end feeling angry at the way I had been treated and just very negative towards the end.
Customer Service Assistant (Current Employee) – Clapham North Station – 10 October 2018
I do enjoy working with the team at my store. We are one big happy family. We share a good times and sad times together, supporting one another. It's good that we work well under pressure when it comes around.
