    I have been working at Primark part-time

    Pros

    The break rooms are so spacious and cozy here, free WiFi, pay is alright(but taxes jeez), managers here are alright as long as your competent and efficient.

    Cons

    The store is big so be ready to walk, Walk, WALK. it's always staffed (at least here) so it's constant work to be done but not over whelming as other stores. NO CENTRAL MUSIC PLAYING IN THE STORES. sometimes it feels as though what your about to do someone else is about to do so there's a small lack of communication as certain people have walkies (if you don't prepare to walk, walk, walk looking for the person your looking for)

    I worked at Primark for less than a year

    Pros

    people, store, coworker, time management

    Cons

    Management is so bad. They don't care about their employees at all. They treat them bad and have those promoted, getting paid doing nothing, no experience, badmouth customer, gossip about employees and too much favoritism.

    I have been working at Primark full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free uniform. Fun training.

    Cons

    Work load is crazy. They bounce us around from department to cash tills to fitting room. At the end of the night the store looks like a bomb went off. Messy all the time. Sizes are meant for little people and that's not good if your selling in US.
