    Store manager where I worked was on £45,000 plus company car, that was in 1993. I've seen B+Q management jobs recently >£60k so the pay is there but then you have high pressure on sales targets each week and of course 7 day opening etc. Not saying it's a better career option but the progression is there for those that want it. Some people are quite happy shelf stacking/operating a checkout and we need them so i'd not diss off those roles tbh

    Is it still common to get inflation raises per year in a school? If you stick it out, on any banding that must work out to be pretty good over time (if it's still the case)?

    Really? I have the drive for the job and go above and beyond. But when asking my employer if I could go up a scale and go to a Senior IT Technicians post I was refused as they can't afford it.... yay!

    I do get Incremental Increases each year, although after 3 years it can't go up anymore and I can't get a higher paid role unless I move to another school and get a different job. Also it isn't that much more a year I think I get around £40 more a month now I have had my increase!

    Yup store manager salary does vary greatly. Now would you want to be a network manager of reasonably large school get paid £23k, or would you want to be a store manager for a reasonably small store and get paid £25K. I know which one i pick.

    Agree with that. As was mentioned earlier, store managers at somewhere like Tescos can earn £50k plus. However, you can guarantee they would have worked their backside off to get that far having started off stacking shelves. Seriously, early starts, late finishes, slatings from the public, slatings from management. Every store manager I've known that has come through the ranks has been semi burnt out by the age of 35.

    Hah you think because you're unemployed you can get a council house? hahahahahaha

    There's hardly any left for years they didn't build more to replace the ones sold. I think there's a 7 year waiting list in our area. We're in a housing association bungalow there's 4 of us, I don't know what we'd do if we had to pay private rates round here, we pay £400 a month rent and £100 council tax, private rent alone here for a similar property would be about £700-800 a month.

    Sorry bit OT but thought it was worth pointing out.

    The last time I was unemployed, we actually did quite well with tax credits picking up the slack so I can really see how people get caught in the benefits trap as I don't think we were much worse off then than we are now, i'd never advocate it as a way of life though.

    Oh and don't forget there's a benefit cap now so you can't collectively get more than £26k aggregated over a pile of benefits (don't know if PIP is included in that or not but HB, CTB, TC and CHB are)
