    I worked at Sainsbury's Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There were a lot of people thriving here and enjoying their work which was always changing due to the volatile banking market. Head of banking always had a good vision of all products.

    Some people working here were very old school and complaints about poor behaviour of colleagues was not taken seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees.

    Pros

    Sainsburys bank is well known business. Good employer.multicultural and equal opportunity employer.always support their staff. Flexible job opportunities according to the needs of employees.

    Cons

    Not enough opportunities to grow. Due to restructuring the payment have been reduced.lack of motivational support to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management should arise the opportunities where the experience colleague can advance their skills. There are certain employees they wish to work in different area with in the bank but all jobs are in head office which restrict the employees to relocate with family.

    I worked at Sainsbury's Bank full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great Brand Huge potential if they were to get it right Good new office Some great departments with really good people Decent rate of pay

    Cons

    Imported the worst of big bank culture through their hiring process as they grew their number of employees significantly Wrong strategy - Trying to compete with the big banks at their own game, without any of the advantages of scale the big banks have An increasingly blame culture where politics trumps truth-telling or fact-checking Impossible to get anything done outside of transformation projects

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Sainsbury's Bank full-time

    Pros

    Better hours than a hospitality job, salaried.

    Cons

    Your job is to be a robot, plain and simple. It's soul destroying and yet management still force you to engage in this faux development rubbish. It's all for show. There's no development opportunities. I've seen time and again colleagues have "progression opportunities" dangled in front of them only for those opportunities to mysteriously never materialise. If you're looking for a job for a few months, sure it's... fine, but have an exit strategy. Also the pay is very poor compared to similar positions elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the manipulation tactics and actually invest in your staff.

    I have been working at Sainsbury's Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent breaks, no late shift on weekends

    Cons

    Managers are either really good or really terrible, depending on who you get you might want to leave sooner rather than later. Telephony agents are asked to do more and more things weeks after weeks without reviewing targets or raising salary, little to no chance to move to another department if you are in telephony as everyone leave
