    I have been working at J Sainsbury full-time

    Pros

    A big company which impacts lots of people in the UK, Working for Sainsburys allows you to make a big difference in people's lives. A good set of company values means that Sainsburys does the right thing for its customers.

    Cons

    long hours make working in a supermarket both physically, emotionally and mentally tiring. Grocery market is having a tough time at the moment meaning that promotions have slowed down in the last year.

    Advice to Management

    invest more in store labour to ensure service is our USP versus ALDI and Lidl. Product development is always important as customers want to feel excited by the offering.
