Terrible management. Supervisors& managers are condescending and rude. New people get ignored and deliberately pushed out by supervisors& long time workers. Customers are rude. Over all not a nice working environment.

Primark - Yeovil

I left because I'm only contracted to weekends, I have previously applied for a better contract (Monday - Friday 14:15 - 18:15) and got no response or even an interview. The management isn't the best, very unorganised and not very good communication amongst themselves or the supervisors. Working 4 hour shifts doing the same thing every weekend made the day go really slow and boring.

The only thing I did enjoy is, even though the communication could use a little tweaking, I have met some of the best people working here and made some friends for life.

Sometimes as a sales assistant. You would be working hard tidying the store and then often would see Managers gassing and not doing anything. But then as soon as they see something one the floor or something that's out of place they call you to do it even though you are in the middle of doing something else. They wouldn't think to do it themselves even if it was right by their feet. They are paid considerable more and can't even pick up a hanger off the floor. They would prefer you to stop doing what you are doing and and pick it up. Even if you were with a customer. Not all managers were like this. But a couple are like this and sadly think they are too good to do a basic task.

After you're hired, but before you start work you will need to take part in an induction in groups (Mine was shortened to four hours) that includes the signing of your contract, ordering your uniform and customer service training. I also had a tour around the store because my induction was from 5 until 9 at night, so after working hours whilst the store was quiet.
