My purchasing manager is on about $80K but its a bit like a piece of string. Depends on type of industry (and level of technical knowledge required). The level of collaborative work is way behind europe... which opens up a load of opportunities.

Suggest you use Seek.com but dont take the first job offer or advice from agent your rate will change with local knowledge (and once you build up some contacts).

Hello!
I was just wondering how much a person in Coles/Safeway got for checkouts/shopfloor work? When we eventually go I just want a basic part time job that you walk in, do the job and go home until I can sort everything else out. Any ideas on hourly pay?

I'm annoyed that I dont know the answer to this, I do know that Safeway will employ any age group and both genders.

I'll find out and report back.

I'm going to guess at this stage, from 8 dollars, for a 16 YO, through to 15 bucks per hour for an Adult, will confirm soon.

I am a teaching assistant here in U.K specialising in Secondary Autism intervention - making sure children with Autism are successful in mainstream secondary education as many are excluded for behaviour.
Anyway.....I have slightly researched this area but need to change my terminology to the Aussie equivalent which will take time.
I will send some lovely K for your assistance

When I started pushing trolleys at Woolworths it was $2.45 per hour so you must be able to get more than that

On my trip to Safeway Coburg today, I Queried the 30 something male "Checkout chick", who didn't mind answering as there was no one else in the queue. I was pleasantly suprised at his answer. Currently its 15.80 per hour, going up to 16.05 next week. Apparently thats the minimum a mature aged person can earn at any Safeway around Aussie. After 6.00 pm, the rate goes up to Aud 18.90, with weekend sunday rates currently coming in at 27.00 dollars per hour.

Not bad at all, I guess the downside is, it wouldn't be full time, and probably very irregular hours. But as its considered the bottom end of the market, it's quite a decent wage.


BTW, there are plenty of jobs around at present as well.

I was chef, looked at the wages and its as varied as the UK, depends on where you are and what kind of establishment etc...i saw position in Adelaide for ft chef split shifts - $37,750 and was one of the better salaries and it didnt inspire me to be honest!

My wife worked as a purchasing officer for a couple of big international companies when we were in Sydney, both on 12 month contracts. Both paid her around $60k plus superannuation on top. She was aged 29 at the time and had 10 years experience working in purchasing/supply chain for multi nationals.

Default Re: the official jobs/wages thread...

Myself and husband are heading over to the Sydney area about April 07 (ish). He currently works as a site manager for a housing company but is a carpenter by trade. Does anyone know what the money is like for carpenters around Sydney? Or are there any site managers out there who could give some advice on wages/work availability? Thanks
