Managers and supervisors think they own u, they have no respect for u and treat u like dirt, they try their hardest at findig faults in each and every employee over doing their job right. All supervisors + managers talk about the store manager, shifts are ridiculous, everyone is overworked, too much expected from employees that are paid 4.80 under 18, 6.25 upto 21 7.05 upto 25 and 25 and over get 7.50. The pay is horrendous.

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.

Depends on the store, but think it requires some initiative. Instead of waiting for Managers/Supervisors to tell you what to do. Work, Finish your department and work your way around. Then do returns. Depends how busy the store is really. Sometimes you are left on your own to do what ever you want as long as you recover your department first.

It may be different in other stores but in Primark Bristol the hours are set if I'm honest:
4 to 8 hours, sometimes 12 hours to 16 hours on the weekend
Weekday is either 20 hours or 40 hours subtracting your breaks.
