Primark offer a small contract at first usually 4 hours but there are endless opportunities for overtime on any day of the week at any hour. A typical days work is putting stock out in the early hours of the day e.g. 8-11 am and tidying the stockroom area. After lunch/breaks its recovery if you're on the shop floor rather than tills or the customer service desk.e.g. folding clothes, size ordering, hanging clothes back up and answering customer queries.
From working at Primark I am now experienced in a very fast paced environment e.g. you get used to it, I am till trained, I know how to expertly fold clothes etc.
The hardest part of the job is recovery as due to Primark being perceived as a lower cost store customers sometimes deem it acceptable to mess up the beautiful stack of clothes you just folded. However, this is a given in any retail shop.
The most enjoyable part of the job for me is becoming more confident. I have made many friends and feel comfortable with speaking to and resolving problems of customers.
Good pay e.g. £7+ for 16-25 yr olds, 11 days holiday, team atmosphere
