    Pros

    Primark is a great company to work for as far as retail jobs go. Promotion within the company is really big which is great if you plan to grow and stick around for a while. The pay is also great, even working part time at $15/hr plus an extra $1.50/hr on Saturdays (our BUSIEST day of the week). Employee discount is cool too but since everything in the store is affordable, the discount doesn’t do much; still nice nonetheless at about 10-15% off.

    Cons

    My only issue with Primark American Dream is that the managers definitely play favorites. You do have some who remain neutral but for the most part, they expect you to kiss their ***. Also, its hard to get in trouble but once you are, they WILL hold it against you (i.e. make you do tedious tasks, undermine you, gaslight you, micromanage, etc.) its exhausting and just plain rude.
