    HR in-house.
    PTO and 401(k) offered to both full time and part timers.
    Set weekly schedule with generous flexibility when figuring out schedule with HR
    Internal promotions and positions not offered to the public.

    Cons

    Management's negative morale can really affect assistants.

    Advice to new employees- be on time for shifts and keep a good record of attendance. The company will help you move up when you keep a good record and genuinely want to grow with Primark.
