Worked there for 1 year and it was horrible
Sale Assistant (Former Employee) – Burton-On-Trent – 11 January 2018
Throughout the time I was working there I was treated like a child,
manipulated, they were often very rude towards me and spoke down to me constantly. As well as that, they were not very flexible and when asked, I was told I wasn't allowed to be allocated any more shifts, I was contracted a few hours a week and was happy to offer more of my services as I was desperate for more money but I was always rejected.
Further more, the typical day at Primark was a nightmare. I was always forced to swap jobs, I was never able to finish a task that I was set by managers as I was constantly given more tasks or was told to move to a different department. It was also impossible to keep areas clean, but not just because of customers, it was mainly because of managers repeatedly telling staff to put more stock out. This resulted in piles of clothing that had fallen on the floor due to no space and boxes everywhere because we never had time to sort them out. But that's only to name a few.
Nevertheless, there were positives such as pay rates and breaks, but unfortunately that is it in my opinion.
Lunches and pay rates
Rude staff and very unorganized
