An alright workplace
It’s an all right workplace. They don’t offer enough hours to sustain normal living. Some employees work really hard some talk a lot. Some managers are cliquey and prioritise same people when there is any overtime available. Overall not a bad place to work.

Great People, Questionable Management
I have worked for Sainsbury's for 8 years and enjoyed my time there. The company as a whole offers lots of benefits and you feel like part of the family. When it comes to management within store its hit and miss. I found that with managers that are new to Sainsbury's they don't want to connect with the colleagues in the same way as the ones who progressed through the business. When managers are under pressure you can feel it on the shop floor, this is due to poor communication and them just being in a bad mood. When things are going well then they can be great to work for, this does depend entirely on your department managers and how they interact with colleagues. You'll find that the recruitment for Sainsbury's isn't very good, even though there is a lot great people, some of the staff do the bare minimum and have no desire to be there whilst others are working twice as hard.
