    Interview

    The interview lasts about an hour. It is easy to prepare for if you Google questions and know everything by heart with examples. Focus on team work, customer service, working individually, main competitors, using charisma, hitting sales etc. Examples are the most important part as they show that you can do these things already.

    Interview

    Part time - applied online, completed questionnaire on the primark site. Was emailed a few days later saying I have been successful and that they would like to invite me to an interview in store. Went to the interview, was quite possibly one of, if not the best interview I have ever had. It was with the manager of the store, she was nice, it was mostly copetency based questions on my past experiences and things. We seemed to get on well, lots of chatting about past things and joking around. Both left the interview with smiles on our faces. A day later! 1 day.. Received another email from primark informing me that they would like to offer me a position of employment within the store. I have an induction day on Friday, which is just showing me the ropes and stuff.

    Interview

    I applied online the next day got an email to pick a date for an interview. I went to the Primark on Oxford Street, and it was really busy at the time I went (it always is anyway) then I was to wait in the room for about 5 mins. the interview was easy, the manager seemed really nice and smiley. She asked the same generic questions and I thought I answered them quiet ok. I didn't really get a chance to show of my personality maybe thats why I didn't get an offer. But its Primark so I would I don't see why they would care.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Primark (London, England (UK)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, and after filling out all the sections and the questionnaire I received an email about 2 weeks later offering an interview (usually i get an email saying for every position i apply that i am unsuccessful but this one for some reason it went in :S?!). as it seemed on the phone she wanted more candidates. I went for one to one interview with a manager (but i waited in the canteen for like more than 15 minutes :o because i was the last person. and i knew iwas last because i said on the phone that i cant come for interview at 11am and she offered me at 3:30 which i accepted. so i had 2 interviews within same day thats why) and I talked about general questions.

    and by the way. the room was like HELL omfg they turned the heater way upp which made me sweat when i was answering the question :O but i did try my best.

    The interview lasted around 15-20 minutes and after that I just left.

    the question i was asked that was on the paper i think (because she was reading it from a paper and writing my answer on the box provided)

    1-Why primark?
    2-What are the main Primarks Competitors?
    3-What would you think of Primark as a customer?
    4-Tell me about a difficult situation and how you asked others for help?
    etc
