I’ve twice worked at Sainsburys. Big on customer service. Big on being legally compliant with food safety and age verification and and big on working hard.
If you can do all that, then great! Also, the more flexibility you offer (weekends, evenings) then the more valuable you will be to them.
Good luck!

Ahh ok that's perfect. They're my main times as I'm free .I'm a student and 17 years old if that affects anything. Appreciate the advice. Will try to show these as prominent characteristics
Good luck
It's hard to get in there. 1st you will have a group interview like asda does then they take it from there. They see if you talk or not.
Morrisons was well easy to get in.

They make u do a topic and see how well you interact but because there's like 8 of you in a group obviously depends on how many people are going that day, those people jump in to talk and it's hard to budge in to talk so people just over talk. I normally let other people finish talking lol maybe that's why I didn't get it back then

Hmm sounds good
Good luck. Take a peak at your social media account and clean up anything you wont be proud of.if asked.
From my recollection of my 'interview' with Sainsburys, they tell you to turn up and you're with a group of others. They train you for 2 days and then they tell you when to start.

Having GCSE’s or not wont have any effect in a retail job. Doubt they will even be bothered about that.

Be confident but don't come across arrogant if you know what I mean. Enjoy yourself and the nerves will settle.

Yup sounds like a good plan. Will try my best🙌🙌
Helps if you know someone, so visit the store and get a few names then casually mention their names to whoever interviews you. I went to group interview once, this one young male adult decided to faint at the group interview when it was his turn and he delayed it to go last, it was so fake he hates group interviews no doubt and was the only way he could get past it, he was the drama queen type. They said he was the worst one but ended up getting the job because his mum works there. There were people better than me that didn't get it, because I knew someone, unfair. If that's not an option be yourself but they look for flexibility so more hours you can show availability, the better.

Ahh ok seems pretty fair but will give it a try. Dont know anyone from this particular store but know someone from the other closest sainsburys. Glad you got it. Yup will show my flexibility. Appreciate the advice

Also slap your bottom multiple times too.

Hehe
Thanks for the advice everyone we'll see in a week when I get a phone call
Read up on their ethos and culture and apply that to the group discussion. You'll be guaranteed to the next stage. (don't ask how, I just know )
