Hourly wage at Tesco

25
Found 27th Jul 2010
Can someone tell me what the current hourly wage is for someone working at Tesco? If you could be so kind as to detail the age groups I.E. 16-17, 18+ etc also...

Lastly, if you work for Tesco, are the new uniforms any good?

my gf is getting the pay rise upto £6.80 or something and she's only 17 - she was saying that their abolishing min.wage for 21 and under i think. Could be wrong though tend to switch off when she's yappin'

Lastly, if you work for Tesco, are the new uniforms any good?



They are more comfortable to work in than the old ones, in my opinion.

I'm not sure if the hourly rate varies for new starters...i've been there a while and get just over £7 p/h basic rate
£6.50 something is the wage at Tesco, from september anyone under 18 will be paid the same as those over 18.
The new uniforms are a lot better, you have the choice between a shirt / blouse and a polo shirt, short of long sleeved plus get to wear combats. You can either have navy blue or red. Plus you can have body warmers and fleeces.

You get a wage rise in May, normally about 2.5%, depending on the companies performance for the year.
£6.63 is the wage and its the same for every age

Depends, general assistants are paid per hour so will depend on how many hours you work,
Managers depends on how high you are up.

Night staff working 37.5 hours, as a GA can earn £1200 a month. Day staff will be slightly lower so I would say £12k a year as an estimate for 37.5 hours a week.

Managers are paid a set yearly salary, only GA's are on an hourly rate

edit: Counters Line Manager - Milton Keynes, Kingston | £22,000 - £25,000 (Depending on experience) (taken from tesco careers site)

GA > Team Leader > Line Manager > Senior Manager > Store Manager

Theres a new store opening around here creating 100s of jobs. I may jump on board as the pay doesn't sound half bad!

It says no where about managers so i presumed that it wasn't any special position just general, since the Op was asking about 16/17 age and 18+ so don't think they would be applying for a mangers job do you!

After 6 months you get 10% discount card, after a year you can buy shares & get free shares every year. In 4 years I have over £3k of shares from putting £20 a month in.
You can also progress to management quite quickly, all stores run a management scheme.
Sounds quiet awesome. Thanks for all the info. I won't be going for a management job straight away...

Can all staff get a body warmer/fleece? Would be nice to go to work in, in the winter.

EDIT: Sounds like Tesco give quite a bit more than minimum wage.

Yup, and a lot more than other supermarkets. 2 of my managers are ex asda. Just be able to put up with a lot of crap, and be able to ignore snide remarks. Some of the managers are so far up their own backsides imho.

I thought you worked as a computer nerd not a Tesco worker.

Or are you a computer nerd employed by Tesco?

No I work at Tesco a few hours a week to pay my bills, while self employed as a "nerd" the rest of the time...
Don't think you will become a manager easily without a degree in retail management.

You don't need no degrees, Tesco train you to become management material for them, which includes working in different roles in different stores.In our store, 15 people in last 3 years have started as GA's then became managemet, one of the ex GA's is now dairy manager back at our store.
Most will get farmed out to other stores as management changes a lot.

Depends what you mean by 'easily'. No, you won't automatically join Tesco as a manager without experience and/or a degree, but technically the opportunities are there for anybody starting an entry level job to become a manager with enough hard work. Providing you put that work in and make yourself stand out it isn't actually that difficult. Same goes for most major chains.
Wow glad I turned down that managers job at tesco now.

Why?
Hope I get one of the 100s of jobs going then. Thanks everyone.
