A typical day on the shopfloor at Primark tends to be somewhat unpredictable and at times monotonous. I am often required to switch from department to department in order to make sure that one department is not too messy and is presentable to customers. Stock is normally distributed in the mornings when its quieter and then I normally am put on tills.
During my time at Primark I have learnt the following ; Ability to balance multiple tasks, the ability to work under pressure, developed a sense of understanding and compassion when dealing with certain customers, the capability of completing a group task in a given time period, efficient ability to use till.
Management in Primark varies from supervisor and manager but it is mostly tightly managed and Tayloristic. Department structure is often determined by a supervisor.
The hardest part of the job would be the monotonous cashier tasks which get repetitive quite quickly.
The most enjoyable part of the job would be helping customers that need assistance and being acknowledged for it.
Discounts, friendly colleagues
