About us

Sainsbury’s commitment to helping customers live well for less has been at the heart of what we do since 1869.

Today that means making our customers’ lives better and easier every day by offering great quality and service at fair prices – across food, clothing, homeware and financial services – whenever and wherever they want it.

As our customers’ lives change, so will our business. Sainsbury’s acquired Home Retail Group, the owner of Argos and Habitat, on 2 September 2016, creating one of the UK’s leading food and non-food retailers – a multi-product, multi-channel business with fast delivery networks.

Fast paced.

If you like to be kept busy then this is the job for you. At the branch where I work you will be expected to work in all aspects of the business. There is never a dull moment as there is always lots to do and not enough staff, so yeah… expect to be stretched. Having said that, the staff are all lovely and pull together as a team.


Friendly environment


Expected to do too much with not enough staff.

Senior management awful

Rated 2 out of 5

Trying to be one size fits all. Middle management not respected by senior management. Terrible one dimensional senior managers. Untrustworthy and will happily target people using any means necessary.


Some great colleagues


Senior managers

Great time but bad management

Rated 4 out of 5

So i worked at sainsburys for a grand total of 3 years, two different stores. I have made lifelong friends.

However, we had two brand new managers, one was 21 and didnt know how to do ANYTHING.

I was promised a full time contract and never got it, i felt belittled by this new manager, so i left.

Poor progression and depressing

Rated 3 out of 5

Good stop gap job for students as pay is £10 an hour and good for the brain numbing work but not a career path. Management are sometimes rude and disrespectful and treat you like pets


Decent pay for the work


Bad management as they don’t care

Career development

Rated 5 out of 5

Working at Saintsbury was a dream come true for me. Blending culture but all are helpful to each other. Any body can rebuild his behaviour and manner by working at Saintsbury
