    I'm 16 and just left school and am now at college. I was just curious to find out the hourly pay for someone my age working at Tesco part time as I have applied for the role of customer service assistant. Any help would be appreciated!

    I think it's minimum wage or lower than the minimum age

    But do you work at Tesco? I only want to know if you know for sure because anyone can just make guesses.

    Hello! Recent ex-Tesco employee here. I'm fairly sure that one of their policies is to pay everyone the same regardless of age - that is, £7.24 an hour (and double time on Sundays/bank holidays) - however having just left school you might struggle with the interview as they tend to ask questions about previous experience (as in, in work) hope I helped!!

    Hey Aidan, what was the interview like? I have had a call today letting me know that I have an interview with them. Am just wondering what type of questions they asked you and if it was a group or 1 on 1 interview.

    Hi, I know the last post was a while ago, but in the online application you have to put 'required salary'. I'm really unsure what to put! Any help would be appreciated!

    And are you still there and do you recommend working at Tescos??

    Thanksss

    Hi there, I put down £7.50 as my requested salary, but I get paid £7.92/ph which is brilliant at my age. I normally end up earning around £800 a month as I do a lot of over time.

    I'm still at Tesco and am really enjoying my time there. My Interview was one-to-one and so was my induction, altogether the inductions are usually done with a few people in a group.

    Hope this information helps

    Hi Aidan, thanks for the help - I wasn't sure if I put it too high whether or not they would reject me!! I really hope I get an interview at least - and a one-to-one at that!

    Thanks again, Lucy
