    I think its double what it is usual days. I think. My friends sister worked in waitrose on a sunday and got £10 and hour, 3 hours = £30, pretty good. But as Izzy said they are hard to find.

    The pay for some large chain supermarkets is time and a half or double time on a sunday.

    Hope that answers your question.

    Yeah, I think supermarkets are the exception when it comes to higher rates on a Sunday - I worked in a shop (large chain but not supermarket) and there was no extra rate for Sundays so I didn't work them

    Doesn't matter if you work in a supermarket. I am assuming that when you accepted the job you signed a contract. Within that contract and the basis on which you accepted the job was the pay and hours you would recieve. They have no obligation to raise your pay at all. If you don't like it, then perhaps you could look elsewhere rather than complaining.

    In my last job working in a shop I was only contracted to a Saturday, so when I worked a Sunday I got time and a third. Another girl who was contracted to a Sunday only got normal pay on the Sunday, so maybe it depends on what hours they contract you to. If you cant find out, you could always ask at interview...Im at Sainsburys now but I dont know what the pay is on a sunday as Im not contracted to them

    Yep, and equally they don't have to pay you if they decide they don't want you.

    Yes, and I am sure that your supervisior earns it being that he is more responsible than you if things go wrong.

    Maybe it's just because they fill in the timesheets that go to the HR department and they want to save money on their P&L :rolleyes:
