Pay rates

Pay is based on the number of bins picked. A ‘bin’ is a wooden fruit bin that holds approximately 400 kg of fruit. The pay rate varies with different fruit, but as a guide, the rate is approximately $30.00 per bin. New pickers take a couple of days to develop their picking technique, during which time 2 to 4 bins per day would be expected. More experienced pickers can achieve anything between 4 and 10 bins per day. Some fruit varieties are paid on a hourly basis.



All employees need to provide a tax file number and Australian bank account details. Payments are made once a week (Thursday) directly into personal bank accounts.
