how much discount do staff get at sainsburys

blineboyblineboy

as title says and also can vouchers be bought at a discount using staff discount, so if i bought £200 worth of vouchers and got 15% discount (which i think is how much staff get at sainsburys) which works out £30. then you wanted to buy something for £300 after discount which costs £255. all ill have to pay is £25 difference. if my calculation is correct it works out £225 for a brand new ps3. kinda worth the hassle since your saving £75. would be gratefiul for any help on this. thanks

    I dont believe u can get discount on vouchers. I havent worked at sainsburys but have at whsmiths., their policy was that you get discount on the item, so if u were to get discount on the vouchers too you'd get two lots of discount.

    when i worked at tescos we used to get a massive pack of vouchers around christmas time. It was usually things like £3 off a £30 spend etc

    the machines werent smart enough to limit the amount of vouchers used to 1 per transaction so myself and loads of the staff even managers used to get all of the alcohol for christmas new year etc food, desserts and then use all of the vouchers saving about £90 then use discount card. This will still b happening this year, i dont work for tescos anymore tho.

    If you're asking for yourself, I think your best bet would be to quit Sainsbury's and find a job somewhere else. The pay isn't very good in retail generally, and at Sainsbury's, or at least the one nearest to me, the pay's only about £5.75, and for the amount of work that shop staff do, you derserve more than that. Hunt around, you'll find someone willing to pay you more for your time. This won't help make the PS3 any cheaper admittedly, but £300/£5.75 = 53 hours of work. Find someone who'll pay you just £1 an hour more, and it becomes 44 hours work, three hours less than you'd get with your 10% staff discount.
