    New jobs sometimes put people on an emergency tax code (which is 20%). Wait till you get your payslip. If it is tax you will get it back 😊

    Thanks that makes sense, wasn't told about that and it's my first official job minus waitressing at a local pub

    Don't worry. I was the same with my first job. Freaked out that I was getting paid below minimum for nights.
    The good thing is you tend to get all your tax back at once which means a huge pay day 😍😍

    Hi
    I know it's different for most stores, but I want to apply to Tesco for when I move back to my uni city (3rd September). Is it too early to apply now? How long does the whole process last?

    When did you get yours back? Do you think it will be next month or later than that? I'm used to getting paid weekly and prefer it instead of having to wait another 30 days haha

    I had an interview on Wednesday (29/07) and then came in on thursday (30/07) to hand in my documents and the women asked me if I wanted to do a work sample. So I just worked in clothing for half an hour with some random women then after half an hour the women said I could leave if I liked so I left. Is this normal? Was I being assessed? Seems like I worked half an hour for free:confused:

    Also does anyone know how long it takes them to contact you after this? They haven't given me any information at all...

    Do Tesco even hire 17 year olds? Seems like they only want 18 year olds

    Everyone I've asked about tesco that is 17, said they got rejected.
    They do, I was 17 when I got hired a month ago; although I'm 18 now. My job hasn't changed at all so there is no advantage to having me at the age of 18 rather than 17. The only advantage is I don't have to ask someone if I can serve age restricted items... Not really going to make them want 18 year old's over 17's in my opinion.

    One of my colleagues in the same department is 17, she started in December and turns 18 in September. Plus, a majority of people in my store started when they were 16/17 years ago! It's just a coincident that it was all your friends that were 17 that got rejected. I'm sure an equal amount of 25 year old's are rejected too!
