I posted a review of Sainsbury's on the indeed website but my review was rejected. What can I do?

Below is the review that I wrote:

--------------------------------------
Please see this video about Sainsbury's www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jb2E_3t3mLQ

Sainsbury's lied to me about my working hours. When I said that I want to discuss my working hours they invited me to a meeting and dismissed me calling me a liar. The meeting note-taker did not write down everything I was saying during the meeting. The manager conducting the dismissal meeting was not listening to me and became very irate for things I did not do. My dismissal letter states that the meeting in which I was dismissed was a disciplinary meeting. Sainsbury's did not follow the disciplinary procedure mentioned in their Employee Handbook. The Employee Handbook was contractual so Sainsbury's breached my contract by not following their disciplinary procedure. Sainsbury's deny that my dismissal meeting was a disciplinary meeting and Sainsbury's note-taker (the person who took notes during my disciplinary meeting) posted about himself on his social media pages that he is "fluent in bulls**t" and that he is a "compulsive liar". I have written to Sainsbury's Head Office about this incident but Sainsbury's CEO doesn't care.

Perhaps you should look at the other negative reviews. And how they have been written. ..Usually as well as writing negative stuff about the company the reviewers are expected to write something positive.

For example, it would be something like the following. I found my fellow staff members to be friendly enjoyed working with customers. But the Management were totally unprofessional and had a dismissive attitude towards staff and did not follow the disciplinary procedures as outlined in the employee handbook. They changed work schedules at short notice. Avoid working for this company it is not worth the headache.

Pros: friendly colleauges and customers.

Cons: Terrible attitude of management towards staff.

.....................


What you have done is written about a specific incident and then posted a video asking people to view it. Its most likely this reason that your review did not get published.

Another reason could be I assume is because you have highlighted a specific grievance of a certain incident that took place then Indeed.co.uk. might legally have an obligation to give a right of reply to the supermarket.

If you feel you have a legal case then
Consult an employment lawyer. If there is absolutely no legal recourse and just your word against the Supermarket you worked for and then one can only advise that you learn from this experience and try to move forward with your life...

The name of the company is Sainsbury's

If anyone wants to know further details please send me a message.

I want to warn people that the company is dishonest and rogue (in my opinion). I can show evidence that supports my opinion to those who want to see it.

I have spoken to solicitors about this and yes it is far too late to take this matter to an employment tribunal.

Bismillah.

Looking at the multiple negative reviews about the bad treatment of staff. It Is a recurring theme on the indeed.co.uk review section. With many people warning others not to work for this company.

I have written to Sainsburys about their bad treatment of their employees in general.
And will if I get a response post it here.

I am sorry that we were not able to be of greater help on here.

From a family man and customer point of view I dislike Sainsbury's because its OVER priced in comparison to Asda, Tesco, Morrison's, Lidl and Aldi.

Even their own branded items are so badly hiked up, it's pathetic.

However, for the shopping that is done for office stock, Sainsbury's is the closest so i/we buy our milk, coffee, tea, sugar, bleach, soap, liquid, tissues, water etc etc all from there. It's even the nearest petrol station to us.

In fact, I've been sent notifications from Sainsbury's over the last few years (but not including 2020/21) that we've purchased the most of a single item in the whole year ;) and I get all the Nectar points :) that I end up using in Argos ;)

So, I hate them and I use them for my advantage. Otherwise, I tend to stay away for personal use.

Have you got any response from Sainsbury's?

Can I kindly ask forum members to write an email to Sainsbury's for a response. It can be a short email just asking Sainsbury's why the company refuses to allow me to show evidence in public of Sainsbury's lies? If anyone wants a suggested template email then please let me know and I can prepare one.

Firstly Sainsburys or any company infact will not respond to e-mails sent by random people concerning grievances of a particular employee unless the person writing to them is the agrieved employee themself or a legal representative. Acting on behalf of the aggrieved employee. Such matters are considered by virtually all companies as a private matter between the company and the employee.

As far as my e-mail I found the e-mail address of the CEO and head of Sainsburys Simon Roberts. I sent the following e-mail. I doubt I will get a response I am not an employee and they are not under any obligation to respond to me. But I hope my concerns will have been noted in anycase. My e-mail was generic and not about your particular case although I highlighted the type of grievances you have mentioned in your posts. Here you go.

Dear Mr Roberts.

Looking at the reviews on indeed.co.uk.
By former and current employees of your company I am shocked and dismayed. About what I have read. Extremely high pressure environment, especially in the distribution centre and online ordering. Unachievable targets set. Completely dismissive and patronising attitude of management towards employees.
People having work schedules changed at short notice, employees who raise questions concerning issues affecting them.
Being treated with complete disdain and lack of empathy and a perceived threat of dismissal hanging over employees if they raise their voice about their mental well being, and some even being mocked concerning mental health issues. I was totally astonished to read this and it was a recurring theme. Surely one would expect Sainsburys a highly respected and established high street name. Would have better training for supervisors and management concerning the treatment of staff under their supervision. I was even more stunned that their seems to be a complete lack of awareness or even care at Sainsburys concerning the mental well being of staff. Or any real tangible methods for staff to raise their grievances with people complaining disciplinary procedures and complaint procedure as outlined in employee Handbook are often not followed through.

Sainsburys can and should do better when it comes to the mental well being of employees. As it stands their seems to be employees left completely traumatised and emotionally burnt out by their experience of working for Sainsburys. I hope you will look into this.

Kind Regards.
