I am 17 year old full time student and I have got a job at M&S.

I am getting paid 9.5 an hour and want to know how I can get this salary up.

Any ideas ?

How long have you been working for?
Is your behaviour good?
Are you bringing a positive impact to the company?

Pushing a promotion or seeking for one seems desperation unless deserved with all due respect I don’t know how you work so I wouldn’t comment on whether something like that rewarding offered at such young age would provide you with more money although what you could be able to do is be flexible within your role to do additional hours ‘overtime’ that’s outside of your contract and for everyday hour worked you will get your hourly rate.

Retail doesnt work like that unless your management or specialist.
In retail wages are a flat rate accross the board for customer assistants ect.

For a 17 yeqr old they are already above minimum wage and likelly unskilled. So other than progressing up the ladder there isnt much else to do

I haven't even started the job. Tomorrow it is going to be induction day. I want to give an initial great impression. If I impress him what salary increase will he likely give me.

What PonchoKid said, not much to do.
I guess you can save up.
