    So I got a interview at Tesco for customer assistant night shift. Hours are 22:00-07:00am. For both Friday and Saturday.

    My NMW is £5.30. Age 21+ is £6.70.

    So what should I ask for? In the online form, I said I "roughly expected £7" and still got an interview. But, what should my hourly rate be considering I'm working in night premium hours. This is at a Tesco Extra.

    You'll find out in the interview I doubt you'll be getting anything less than 6.50

    Will they provide me the hourly rate and negotiate from there on? Or will they ask me of what rate I want? If so, I just didn't want to say a value too low or ridiculously high.

    I'm not sure for my job the rate was shown in the advert- best find someone that has worked in tescos. If they ask go for £7 I mean those hours sound horrible and how old are you?

    I'm 19. On a gap year, so these hours are OK with me. My rate was not shown. Is £7 not too low for night hours and weekends?

    Probably I mean at 17 I was making £7 delivering pizzas and they offered 7.50 when I told them I was leaving to concentrate on exams. Bear in mind i wasn't working your late hours. But the difference between 7 and 8 £ per hour is unnoticeable. Have you had a job before?

    Will be my first paid job. If you don't mind me asking, how long was that ago for you? Current NMW day rate is £6.70. I was expecting much more than £7 for late nights and weekends at that.

    You can't negotiate pay at Tesco (or other supermarkets for that matter). Their rate is fixed for all staff -- night staff will get a pay premium between midnight an 6am. The actual amount depends on the area (e.g. London stores get higher than non-London etc.).
