    Default Is there any Kmart workers here?


    I'm hoping a current Kmart employee can help me out please.

    Long story short, I was made redundant at the end of last year, and a few months back I dropped my resume off at my local Kmart (and other shops) in the hope to pick up any sort of work.

    I was wondering though, if I work evenings/nights (our Kmart is 24hrs), what the penalty rates are worth?
    I've been told of an approximate hourly rate for a 35 year old, but I need to work out that if I work nights, how much extra I can possibly earn with penalty rates.

    I'm just trying to determine if the wage is sufficient to cover mortgage payments, after school care fees etc....along with DH's income too of course.

    If anyone can give me a heads up, that would be super.

    On weekdays 30% for permanent staff and 50% for casual staff (you get an extra 20% on a shifts as a casual) for shifts worked between 12:01am and 6am

    On Saturday 50% and 70% for shifts worked between 12:01am and 6am and 10pm-12am

    On Sunday 100% and 120% for shifts worked between 12:01am and 6am and 10pm-12am.

    Hourly rate is $19/hour as permanent or $22/hour as casual (20% loading).

    Any job is better than no job.
