Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Hanley – 20 November 2017
No typical day or week in Primark, constant changing environment, with the need for variety in communication skills and clear expectations set for myself and my team. A day would involve a variety of stock management controls for the whole store, conducting commercial walks and challenging decisions being made by all my managers. Ensuring the working environment was kept compliant and in line with company procedures and processes. Dealing with multiple floors and departments ensuring a balance across the store as a whole is created and setting clear plans and being organised throughout a day and week. Replying to emails and launching any company communication. The culture was vast with a broad range of experience, and dealing with pros and cons daily from all staff and management. Dealing with poor performing management, a long process, which I have been hands on with during a long period of time. The rewards of KPIs and involving the whole store within those successes, ensuring all are aware and bringing the team together.

Primark is fantastic to work for and the main (if not only) negatives seem to be caused by customers, patience is essential! most staff management etc have an understanding of this and everyone works together to beat the busy periods . A lot of good friends made here too
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Hammersmith, Greater London – 20 November 2017
This job is great if you don't mind repetitive work. The managers are quite inconsiderate to how messy the store does get whilst it is open. Pay is fine and great for a weekend job. Customers are often rude but there will be (occasionally) customers that are understanding and kind. Store floor are always friendly and kind.
Great for a weekend job and there's always overtime
Managers are often oblivious and inconsiderate and messy customers.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 17 November 2017
Ok company to work with, no sense of respect for staff or those who have worked there for a long time. No bonus, not good pay, no discounts, same job day in day out. HR not very helpful, overall a real thankless job.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Eastbourne, East Sussex – 14 November 2017
This job is okay for someone who is looking for a first job to earn their own money, once I started gaining bills in my private life such as rent, I had to leave to find something more financially stable.
