    if you got a part time job, would you expect the £/hr to be lower than somebody doing the same thing, except full time?

    thanks

    No, the wages stay the same as they are hourly. The more you work the more you get paid but it's relative.

    I get more money per hour working as a casual because I don't get sick leave etc. But part time workers get the same money as full time per hour. My work tries to force school students to go part time over the holidays so they don't have to pay them as much.

    That's actually pretty tight. Was gonna ask where do you work, but you can tell me in PM if you want

    Yep, my work's tight too, but in a different way. What they do, is they don't do the whole 'double time' thing and only go up to time-and-a-half, even on public holidays. And I'm a casual too! *shakes head* It's always about money with some people :/

    Yes.

    If you work full-time, you are more valuable to the business and an essential part of their labour force; not to mention opportunities like promotions, pay rises etc. are more frequent and you are more likely to obtain than a part-timer. Part-timers are not so valuable to the business, are more easily replaceable and will have access to less pay rise opportunities, less cause to ask for a rise etc.

    Not to mention you have a good chance of getting paid less as you are under 21.

    I'm working at Wooloworths. We still get double time and a half on public holidays. I'm getting paid about $18 an hour which is pretty good.

    it sounds like you have confused part time and full time workers with permenant contract and agency contract workers there. As what you describe is what usually happens with agency workers no matter if they work 37/5 hours or 20 hours per week.

    I work for Asda and get £5.06 an hour which is really good for supermarket work. You do get paid less for being under 18 though which isn't very good for a company which claims not to discriminate on age. I work 20 hours a week and get paid exactly the same as someone who does 38 hours.

    Danni bella 83, time and half is fine for overtime. In my last job you didn't get paid any extra for overtime worked (ie. over 37.5 hours) and nothing extra for most bank hols (apart from maybe new years eve and another bank hol which I can't remember now).

    where i work you dont get any extra for bank holidays and rarely get paid for any overtime you do (staying on to help after your shift shouuld have ended). i wrk as a waitress for a restaurant chain.

    annoying thing is that a few people who started before signed onto some old contracts which means that they only do get double rate on holidays.

    because they employ tonnes of students (both alevel and uni) they try and press us all to work exta over sch hols, but weve had loads of problems recently cos everyones got exams and wants time off but they just say no!

    so now noones turning up for their shift and they have to call in help from other stores. it even gets to the point where the supervisors actually have to get up of their asses and come out of the office to help.

    not htat im bitter about my crap job, not at all
