Can't tell you exactly but Tesco is reckoned to be better than the average. 15% staff discount also. I know it is better than M&S but they have a higher staff discount. (20%)
Never argue with an idiot. They bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

6 something per hour, rising after a yr. Great benefits, but disc off of shopping is 10% after a year not 15%. Immediate disc off of car/home/pet insurance. Disc off participating gym's/leisure centres. Share save schemes, contributory pension scheme which is good. Good trainee management scheme. Flexible on hours worked. Annual bonus I think. In the childcare vouchers scheme too.

6.22 if i remember rightly and 10% staff discount after 1 year.shares related to pay which you have to hold for 5 years and usual other staff perks. Nights are time and a half as are sundays.

Thats a bit mean of them!

I work on the Produce dept. and am under 18. I am currently on £4.96 however have just completed 1 years service so that will go up to around £5.20. All members of staff have just received the annual payrise (3.8% this year) and the discount has now been lowered to 6months service and is at 10% off when you spend £1 (Not including cigarettes, petrol, lottery etc.) HTH - Oh by the way, sundays are now Time-and-a-half (1.5x) it used to be double time(2x) but that has now stopped and continues only for staff who were employed more than 10years ago
Like what I said? click thanks!

Working for Tesco atm and I get £5.95 (increasing soon due to internal pay rise) then an extra £1.23ish on top of that for working between 10pm and 12am and a further £1.40ish for the night premium (12am-6am). Not bad really if you can stand it! Also they have started introducing the discount card after 6 months, not 12 which I am quite happy about

I don't work Sundays but I think 1.5x is right...

I used to work for Tesco years ago as a student and was very well paid. I left after 5+ years with a raft of benefits from shares etc that I'd accumulated. Back then the discount was 10% after a year and on purchases over 3. The discount scheme was widely abused - hardly any surprise they limit it. Staff were bringing their extended families and next door neighbours in to do their shopping on the cheap.

Rate of pay is 6.82 at present, but with the 2.5 % pay rise, will be 7. There is extra pay for night work (midnight til 6am) and Sunday. 10% staff discount after 6 months, and also 50% extra credit on Tesco mobile.
You also get lots of other perks like vouchers, and can buy shares, have profit sharing after 2 years (I think), and the staff canteens are heavily subsidised and sell great food!

According to a friend, they pay higher than Marks & Spencers, Adsa and all other supermarkets.. as she's had interviews at virtually all of them in the past year.. she went with Tesco and it seems they are very nice to work for!

I worked at M&S for 3 years. When I left my hourly rate was 6.53. The rate had gone up to I think about 6.60 for Customer Assistants. However, because I was on a warning my pay froze to 6.53. If you receive a warning and the rate increases you will not get a raise until your warning has cleared. And then you have to wait until the pay goes up again.
The pay with M&S typically goes up in October time. If your on a warning you will also not receive any pay bonuses that the company offers. The staff discount at M&S is 20% but you can't use it for technology items (TV's DVD's etc).
I've just been offered a job at Tesco (today actually) so I'm looking forward to it. I didn't enjoy my time at M&S for certain reasons. Mainly because I didn't get a lot of thanks for the amount of work I did there, but I know thats probably the same everywhere.

For context the minimum wage is;

  • 5.93 - the main rate for workers aged 21 and over
  • 4.92 - the 18-20 rate

Nothing for Britain's biggest and most profitable retailer to be proud of, is it?

This comes as a huge surprise to me. I simply had no idea. I assumed Tesco was a better employer than that. From other posts, I gather the likes of M&S pay around the same. It also appears wages have either stagnated over much the better part of a decade or actually gone down.

I need to re-think where I choose to shop. I simply don't want most of my weekly food spend to go towards what are (apart from a derisory 80p or so an hour) minimum wage employers.

minimum wage employers? bear in mind that one its a 2.5% or so payrise for all staff during a period when half the public sector had a wage freeze. then you factor in there are no qualifications taken into account when you are interviewed for said job. Plus after a set period you get a discount card entitling you to 10% off shopping plus the same reward points.. a pension scheme 2nd to none and a life insurance policy built into your contract when you are permanent staff. Add to that after a years service you get 5% of your annual wage in free shares every year thereafter. Plus a management scheme that judges you on merit rather than a paper degree.... go figure.... Throw in a decent pension and i find it hard to see your point? Yeah its only a pound above minimum wage but its not a taxing job. Granted it can be busy... ie xmas but for a walk in job... not too bad.
