    I worked at Primark part-time

    Pros

    I left these horrible place. Do not work here

    Cons

    If you are minority Muslim (i.e you are not south Asian) or if you are black Male be careful. Do not fall for their charm and fake praise. Do not allow them talk down to you, do not work in any isolated area. The play mind games and mess with your head. Things to look out for : 1) they will make you feel uncomfortable on the shop floor, by being condescending and demeaning towards you. 2) they will tamper with the tills and say it is cash only till. When you realise something is wrong with the and you make them aware they will not do anything. Months later they will say you are under investigation because your till was down. Refuse to go on tills at all cost. 2) if they ask to clear a pile of clothes ask them to stay while you clear up. Or tell them to do themselves. This is because they hide purses underneath the clothes. They want to make you look bad. If you notice any of the above things make a record and apply to the employment tribunal.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Primark part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good pay Quick career advancement options if interested Generally flexible with hours (see cons)

    Cons

    Quick career advancement and opportunities often lead to ignorant people getting into department management positions because they passed a sales based interview with a smile on their face. Not always flexible about hours and can suit themselves when it comes to contracted hours ("you are obliged to work your contracted hours, except this week we're cutting them because sales were low" sort of jazz). January, one of the worst financial times of the year for the layman, hours are often severely reduced below contracted hours to save money. The value of the customer is often placed way too high above the welfare of the employee. People are awful to sales staff in all forms of retail. More effort should be made to protect the staff from silly people with ludicrous requests instead of welcoming more ludicrous abuse and requests.
