      Good company to work at while at Uni but not enjoyable during COVID and full-time

      Jan 23, 2021 - Sainsbury's Shop Assistant in Sheffield, England, England

      Pros

      - 10% discount - Overtime at your own store or different stores - Colleagues are usually great - Flexible hours - Managers always back you with customer complaints - Gave bonuses (thank you payments) during covid for extra hours worked

      Cons

      - New contract means no annual bonuses or paid breaks - With Covid HR and COOP have been penalising staff and managers by investigating movements on shift through cctv if they go off ill during the pandemic but still allow customers to come in without mask, allow for cash payments over tills - currently, stat sick pay if off for Covid - Either very easily starts or late finishes - When Mike Coupe left he stole the manager's bonuses which was pretty peak and I felt sorry for them

      Fair company, good hourly rate with overtime available regularly

      Pros

      - the hourly rate is good - overtime is nearly always available should you want it - acknowledges and rewards staff who work hard (through ‘love it’ and Yammer) - friendly atmosphere - flexible hours to fit other commitments around - management is approachable

      Cons

      - my own experience of working on the delivery for past 5 years is that it is hard and tiring work (lifting and carrying and a lot of walking but it’s good exercise) - late finish (10:30pm) - work load can be overwhelming - colleague discount is only 10%, although it rises to 15% on certain occasions throughout the year, it is still quite a low discount
