im at tesco.
Firstly its a great place to work- u get to meet loads of ppl.
I think for an 18yr old starting would be about £5.50 per hour. When i started at 16 i was on £3.83. Then after 6 months this went to £4.17. After a year of joining this raised to £4.40 and then when i turned 18 it went to £5.00. At our store we were just given another pay rise of 50p her hour so right now im on £6.10 per hour.
Sundays you get time and a half rate.......
You get paid more on tills, and for specialist jobs such as security etc

Average starting wage for an 18 year old is somewhere around £4.90. You start earning more money when you've been there over a year. Checkouts get paid more than shopfloor (only marginally).
When I started working for them at 16, i was on £3.70.
I then moved to checkouts and got £4.00. By 17 this had gone up to £4.90 because I was also a first aider. I also got moved to working on the customer service desk and had an extra 60p an hour.
At 17 and a half I was promoted and was earning a few more quid extra an hour
Tesco are cool to work for

Tescos paid me:
£5.45ph -> 1st month (at 18),
£5.60 -> 2nd month, then
£5.83 -> 3rd month!
i dont know why. think thats the rate itll stay at for a while now. plus we get a location pay, which isnt much and works out about the same as my tax anyway. i work on shop floor btw. tills get about £6.50. its pretty easy money, but i find it dull as hell sometimes.
i plan to leave soon though and sort out some sort of goal for my career. Tescos have been really good to me though, and i find most people say the same. although they dont (where i am) seem to have any proper induction-training thing, which is pretty scary at first, you soon learn it all. ive only been there 3 months and theyve let me have loads of holiday to see my family, plus i got a four week holiday to australia out of them when im only entitled to 8 days of something at the mo. work hard for them and it pays off

I heard that Sundays are time and a half or double ... are they?

some staff get time and a half on sundaysbut they changed it recently, so i think new staff get time + £1 which is pretty crap. bank holidays rule though, you get paid for being there AND for not being there AND whatever your additional sunday rate is.
so id get: time + time+ £1 = £12.66ph
