    I worked at J Sainsbury full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, great bonus, nice work culture.

    Cons

    Hardly any. Kinda faraway from transport links. But that is me, not driving.

    Advice to Management

    We need more free food!

    Contract Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J Sainsbury (London, England (UK)) in May-2015.

    Interview

    I went through to the job via a recruiter, and after a week or so was called into a face to face interview where I talked to two managers (hring manager and one other) and had to do a very simple SAS test, which was explaining some written code.

    Recruiter got back to me with an offer 3-4 days later.

    The process for contractor hires is very simple and straight forward.
