    I worked at J Sainsbury

    Pros

    4 weekly pay. reasonably nice staff. staff discount.

    Cons

    constantly having to do task's in which you have had no training in.
    bullied into doing extra shifts and somehow never actually getting paid for them.
    horrendous management that have zero people or customer service skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't treat staff as a number. be more understanding of peoples needs or problems. give staff members more back up when it comes to customer complaints.

    It's a shame the vision and drive of the execs don't inspire the grassroots

    I worked at J Sainsbury full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Work was varied, physically active and reasonable. Hours were flexible. Customers are friendlier than other retailers.

    Cons

    Poorly organised Team Leaders who lacked discipline. Wages too low vs profitability. Too much focus on availability over sustainable procurement (i.e. Shipping asparagus in from Peru for 10 months a year.). Does business with the state of Israel. Stocks Nestle products. And the rest, I could go on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BE BOLD. The food industry has to change, Sainsburys could lead the change.

    Stop shipping produce from around the globe, focus on local seasonal produce. Beat Abel & Cole at their own game.

    Don't conduct business with companies or in countries with questionable ethics.

    Make sure all employees, contractors and suppliers earn a living wage.

    Work with other food giants to develop a globally sustainable food system.

    OK, so the last step is a biggy! But you get the picture.
