    Retail Assistant- Sales Floor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Primark (Birmingham, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call back 2 weeks after (I'd nearly forgotten that I had applied for this) to come for an interview. Reached 10 mins earlier, and was directed to the staff's cafeteria to wait for the manager. Waited for around 5 mins, and the manager came and he was a friendly and cheerful guy. Asked for my passport and NI card to be photocopied, before starting the interview. The questions were quite easy and straightforward, mostly competency-based, and availability and all that. No store floor activities. Got a call back on wednesday (interview was on a friday) offering me an 8-hour weekend contract. Unfortunately my offer was withdrawn and put on hold as I could not make it for the induction; they were only having it for one day (and it was on a friday, though i was offered a weekend contract. Just thought it was weird).

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Primark (Birmingham, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I was really nervous but the Manager and staff were nice. I applied online, answered a few questions and uploaded my CV and cover letter. The following day I was invited to an interview in a couple days and was told to go to the customer service desk and bring some documents with me. The interview was one on one and I was given some scenarios and was asked some questions about my skills. It lasted about 15/20 mins.

    Retail Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Birmingham, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Primark (Birmingham, England (UK)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online for the new store opening in Birmingham Fort for a weekend position. I was soon after invited for an interview. I received an email asking me to select a time slot for the interview. I actually missed the interview and wasn't expecting to hear back from Primark again. However, surprisingly, I received an interview email again a few weeks later. It was the same, asking me to select a time slot. This time I did attend. As it was a new store opening, it wasn't the same as standard interviews. We were given a presentation on Primark in a group. Then we were taken to a large room with several tables and managers where there were several interviews going on. The lady who interviewed me was very nice and I felt the interview went well even though I felt I could've done better. Two days later I received an email saying I've got the job! As the role covers many different positions, they've assigned me to cash desk, which I'm pleased with. I've only been contracted 4 hours which is a little disappointing however, I have another job alongside this and there's always overtime available so I accepted.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I don't think there is room for negotiation yet however I am going to discuss my offer when I go to my induction in a few days.
