    I currently have a part time job as a waitress which I've had for just over 2 years, the pay isn't great at all and as I've left school and am having a gap year I want a full time job.

    I've been handing in CV's absolutely everywhere and have been offered a job at a big chain coffee shop 35hr weeks £5.35 an hour.
    I'm unsure whether to take it, I need as much money as I can to go travelling next year and I just dont think that's going to cut it. A friend of mine has just got a job in a bakery at a big supermarket with 39 hours a week and 8 POUNDS AN HOUR!

    Does anyone have any advice on where is best to go for the highest paid per hour jobs? (without obviously heading into a career with yearly salaries!)

    Try a call centre doing sales, decent basic rate, plus you have uncapped bonus earnings in some places.

    I'd say go to a temping acgency and try maybe warehouse work. I'm on about £6.10 an hour in a packing room in a warehouse. Some of the jobs they have advertised are better paid though depending on experience etc

    I would say take it but carry on looking for a better paid one. At least that means you're getting money whilst you search, and that is better than nowt.

    Apply for Tesco, the jobs not the most exciting but at least the pay is good and its time and a half on sundays (for me a 17 year old, £7.50 isn't too bad) + the pay has just gone up again

    :ditto:

    I've worked my way up and im on £8 an hour now, time and a half sundays too. There's usually overtime too.
    You should probably start on no less than £6 an hour.

    You won't get time and a half on a new contract anymore I'm afraid. But still its not a bad pay rate. Night shelf filling (or tills in a 24hr store) would probably be your best bet. The premiums are pretty good.
