    You get reduced goods, if you know who to ask!! Staff discount card after 6 months


    Lots of back stabbing. No praise for doing well but soon on your back if you get something wrong. The Managers are awful and don't care about anyone. Team Leaders are a total waster of time and spend most of them time sucking upto Managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    TRY TREATING PEOPLE LIKE HUMAN BEINGS AND TREAT PEOPLE HOW YOU YOURSELVES WOULD WANT TO BE TREATED!!! The clue is in the title, " MANAGE "!! look after your departments and stores and treat people fairly. Working with the public isnt easy and staff need your support. Most staff work really hard and dont even get a thank you. Would you want to be treated like this?

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at J Sainsbury.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and had to complete a questionnaire. Pretty long winded. Choice of 4 answers but it's all common knowledge. They take the job down as soon as 2 people get 100%. Those 2 are interviewed for the position. During the interview you have to watch a dvd and complete another questionnaire. After that one of the department managers will conduct a bog standard interview, 'How have you delivered great customer service?' 'What would you do if...?'
