My Story

“Being a single mum with grandchildren, flexibility is always the biggest thing for me and I find I can get that here. My manager is really supportive, whatever I’ve got going on we can always move things around to make sure I’m there for my family. That’s a massive plus for me and one of the reasons I’ve been here for 32 years.

“I started at Sainsbury’s when I was 16 to get some pocket money, I worked on the check outs, then grocery, fresh, counters, clothing, I’ve done it all! My favourite part of the shop is the checkouts, I like having a chat with the regular customers and I like the pace of it, things move so quickly there.
