    I worked at J Sainsbury full-time for more than 3 years


    Goal driven, bonus tied to company performance


    Some really strange company policies....became a horrible place to work when new management ruled to the letter of the law.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use common sense and don't hide behind policies. Talk to your staff and be sincere.
