    So starting pay is £7 an hour.
    As your hours are nights, you get night pay which I think is time and a half so you'd be on £10.50 an hour (not 100% sure)
    Coupled with the fact you are working 2 hours on a Sunday again time and a half, you'd be on £14 an hour for those two hours

    9 hour shifts have 1hr30 unpaid breaks, so in total you'll be paid for 15 hours work

    (2x14) + (13x10.50) = £164.50 a week

    I can't guarantee if it's 100% that but probably something around that figure
    Sunday is Time and a Half and Night premium is £1.47 I think. It's not as much as time and a half for sure.

    Until then my tip is to try and get any kind of experience you can put on a CV. Become a prefect, peer mentor whatever roles your school offers and/or try volunteering and/or join a club inside or outside school. Something that you can use to prove you are committed, reliable, self-motivated, dependable and other skills employers want It also gives you something to talk about in an interview (unlike most 16-18 year olds)

    I'm contracted to work on Sunday, but I'm wondering if I will get paid time and a half or just my normal salary?

    Does anyone know what happens if we leave the company but still have holidays that we haven't used up? Do we get paid for any holidays we haven't taken or do we lose them?

    You'll get paid for the holidays that you have earned, but have yet to take. You can find this on the bottom of your payslip.

    As far as I'm aware the Sunday/Bank Holiday rate has went down to Time and a quarter for new employees.

    I joined in August and people told me I was on time and a quarter, but I get time and a half, so think I may have been just before the cut off date. Unless it's still time and a half and everyone just made stuff up about time and a quarter haha.

    Unless it's changed again it should still be time and a half! I joined in October 2014
