It comes to light what Mercadona pays to work only on weekends

With the escalation of prices derived from inflation, the public suffers a loss of purchasing power. This is why it is claimed to companies that increase wages just as the cost of living does. In this regard, the Government announced an 8% increase in the minimum wage, which stands at 1,080 euros per month. Another thing is the private companies, which are within their right to proceed as they see fit, whether they like it or not. However, there are exceptions such as Mercadona. After increasing one 5.7% is the salary this 2023 to its employees, it has now transpired how much the supermarket chain pays to work only on weekends.

The company run by Juan Roig already announced one salary increase of 6.5% in January 2022, so that the basic salary signed in the agreement rose last year to 1,425 euros gross. Before the end of a really complicated year at an economic level, Mercadona returned to increase wages by 5.7%, according to the December CPI. Both the basic salary and the supplements and bonuses. In this way, a worker who joins Mercadona from this January has a basic salary of 1,507 gross monthly euros in 12 payments.

Seniority is also paid: in the case of more than two years, the salary will go from 1,565 euros to 1,655 euros per month. Employees with three years or more will be paid 1.838,80 euros instead of December 1,738. The most veterans, those with a career in the company of more than four years, will go from receiving 1,929 euros to 2.041 euros a month.

Half day or part time

In addition to having a large full-time workforce, the chain strengthens the staff for the weekends, especially for the summer, since in some coastal towns it opens on Sundays from 9 am to 3 pm, and relevant holidays. In this sense, Mercadona hires half-time or part-time personnel, which means shifts of 15 or 20 hours a week, respectively.

If you work 15 hours a week, usually on Fridays and Saturdays, in 2023 you will be paid a gross monthly salary of 565 euros. On the other hand, in the event that the contract states 20 hours a week, which are usually adjusted to Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays, you earn a 753 gross monthly euros.
