    Hourly Pay at Asda? 15th Nov 11 at 10:03 AM
    Hello,

    I have just applied for a job at Asda (think it is on checkouts but Christmas temp so no sure) Does anyone know what they pay per hour - applied via JobCentrePlus which just said "meets national min wage" - I am on min wage at the moment and thought that maybe someone like Asda might pay a bit more?

    I doubt it will be anymore than the minimum wage as Asda rely on a part time non unionised workforce.

    That's not strictly true there are jobs on there that pay more.

    Meets minimum wage is just a standard setting.

    Asda tend to pay a little over NWM and under 18's are paid the same rate as the adults.
    (Looking at my research yesterday for the same question!)
  • Evilm
    For the first twelve weeks (probation or seasonal contract) last year they were paying £6.1588 per hour. After 12 weeks I think it went up to £6.28 for day shift.

    Use it to gain valuable experience, then bang-in an application to Aldi. They start on £8.00 p/hr and use the likes of ASDA, Tesco and Sainsburys to provide them with trained staff.

    It isn't a job for someone with a poor mentality, or someone who looks at how to get the most for the least effort. It's the kind of job where you will be expected to work hard for the entire shift, where you must be proactive and get the job done. They don't accept excuses, and it's certainly not the kind of place where you can expect sympathy and hugs (and tea) if you're having a bad day.

    Thanks for all the replies and advice. I am a mature student so this is just a temp job for me until I graduate but with Christmas coming I was hoping to earn a bit more than I do at the moment - maybe I'll have to volunteer for a night shift! As my budget is quite tight (have a family as well as being a student) I had worked my Christmas budget out on the basis that in my current job I will get paid on 23 December. Anyone know how/when Asda staff get paid? If it's going to be after Christmas I may have to re-think my plans to leave current job anyway :-(
