    have you defo got the job? I personally wouldnt ask before I was certain I was employed (signed the contract) as it would seem you only want to work there for the 'discount' :?

    why not ask at the induction tomorrow?

    I had to work at Sainsburys for about 4 months before I got mine.
    If you're classed as an xmas worker you probably wont get one at all

    yeah - co-op have taken over somerfields

    best hope there isnt a co-op near you then as they mainly bought somerfields to close them down and sell off the retail spaces
