Sainsburys Jobs and Careers – FAQ.

Why am I unable to find a vacancy from my local store?

Some Sainsburys stores will not have vacancies, and so will not advertise jobs on the Sainsburys Careers page. With that being said, it is sensible to check back regularly, as new vacancies may come up.

Can I apply for multiple jobs at once?

Yes, although you should only apply for roles where you are able to fulfil the shift pattern advertised.

Am I able to choose my own interview slot?

In most cases, you will be asked to book your own interview slot by choosing from a number of possible times. However, there may be limited availability, resulting in only a small number of options.

Can I change my interview slot after booking it?

If you applied for a store vacancy, you can usually re-book your interview by logging in via the same link you used to book your initial interview appointment. However, you cannot re-book on the day of the interview. For other roles, you will either need to contact the store directly, or speak with your recruitment consultant.

Is it possible to work different hours from those advertised?

Generally speaking, it is advisable to only apply for a vacancy if you are able to work during the hours advertised, as these have been selected for a reason.
