    And also, full time or part time?

    Call Centre
    Part Time - casual hours In an ideal week I do 32.5 hours/week.
    £6.50/hour, or £7/hour if I'm doing admin work (also get to use a badass pink timesheet when doing admin work)

    It's a great student job because you can work when you want. However when the work starts to dry up (as it is right now; accursed govt. cuts) you run the risk of having only one shift/no hours at all because there's only so many staff hours to go between everyone.

    Mercure Hotels
    Waitress/Bar Maid
    Part time: zero hours based, so whenever I'm home from uni, I can just ring up and ask for whatever spare shifts they have. Usually around 20 hours a week or so, loads more at Christmas.
    Oh and I only get whatever minimum wage is for an 18 year old

    Waitress, Part-time. £5 an hour, just like it was at my old job. Although with tips it can be a bit more, £7/h maybe?
    Not the most fulfilling job in the world

    I work for a sports photographer and get paid £7ph. Sometimes I can be doing absolutely nothing for an hour or more but I still get paid for it. I enjoy it, I get to work outside, it's pretty relaxed and it's a really small company and we all get on.

    For a bank call centre right now I'm dealing with savings for tax year end, usually I'm in sales. Part time, 16hours a week.

    £8.50ph plus 15%extra for working Sundays and nights.
    Plus my quarterly bonus, so an extra £300ish every three months.

    I worked in a restaurant part time at uni and then full time until I got my Commission in the Navy. I was earning about £13-14 an hour if you include tips and that was an average week, more over Xmas. I also did a bit of A-level and GCSE tutoring at up to £25 per hour.

    At the moment I have a cushy part time job in a Library, just in there for 12 hours over the weekend around term time, and get holidays off £7.40 an hour.

    I was on £6.67 per hour for 15 hours a week at Waitrose.

    Now I'm on £7.25 per hour for 12 hours (average per month) a week at John Lewis. Also including a Sunday shift, which is 1.5x

    So, I work less hours overall per month, and get around the same pay

    I work in a Garden Centre for £4.00 an hour... Should be going up to £4.92 when I'm 18 though! Score! *I need a better paying job*
