      Pros

      Absolutely nothing, gone downhill in the past couple of years...

      Cons

      Long hours, expected to stay an extra 1-2 hours everyday and not get paid, no support, sometimes working 14 days straight, hard to take full break entitlement, physical abuse from people stealing and they don't care, poor communication between management team, no work/life balance, expected to work on holiday, penalised for taking sick days, convenience managers expected to do everything, upper management are almost all white men, no mental wellbeing support, made all team leaders redundant, stopped Sunday time-and-a-half pay, no longer provide hot food in canteens, have to work on x-mas and bank holidays.

      Pros

      Decent hourly rate relative to other supermarkets

      Cons

      Can end up working late hours. Managers and team leaders can be okay, others can be a nightmare.

      Just don't

      Pros

      They MIGHT pay you a bonus. Their system is so disorganised & a mess you will likely find you can get away with anything. It actually is a sociable friendly environment to work. You do get a good friendship group & it is flexible with a work-life balance. It treats everyone equally bad - so it is fair in that respect.

      Cons

      Management - Their ambitious, lazy & honestly utterly cruel at times, trust me I was one. It's an unhealthy environment. They do NOT give a damn about you. From regional managers to your department manager - they really do not care. You won't get your bonus - It's reliant on a mystery customer, who feedbacks whether or not product was available or if there were queues - but since sainsburys refuses to replace lost staff that is always the case As aforementioned, expect to be multi-skill trained (THIS IS NOT A BAD THING) right up until you find you have 8 rollers left to work, you've been called to tills or somewhere else & it's apparently your fault you didn't do the impossible. NO accountability for management errors or recognition when you did good. Literally no advancement opportunities since team leaders don't exist, the company typically externally hires unless you're a brown-noser.

      Pros

      No one bothers you. Just be on target and shop away.

      Some team leaders can be bullies if you slack.

      Pros

      Had a decent team most of the time. I transferred stores twice in the 4 years I worked for this company which was an easy to do process. Staff discount sometimes went up to 2
