    I worked at Primark full-time

    Pros

    the pros are good pay,benefits,401k,culture and pricing .

    Cons

    lack of sympathy for personal problems. predominantly white and poor diversity on the top level. will target you if they don't like you. The manager that i had the experience of working with was rude, lack empathy and intellectually dishonest. If you get on their bad side they will create a bully atmosphere to push you out once they deem you to be a target. Also fraternization in the work place seems to be excepted since the store manager and lower level manager are in a relationship working in the same store/location.

    Advice to Management

    Learn better management skills. Big egos, one way communication and resistance to change will only give your company a revolving door and bad reviews.

    I have been working at Primark

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, easy to accrue paid time off, you are never bored, always something to do

    Cons

    Staff levels are horrible. You have no team to manage. Most of the time you are doing double the work, as a retail assistant and manager. The job can be stressful at times due to the lack of staff and time allotted to get things done

    Advice to Management

    Hire better employees with retail experience and match them up to departments. Find experts in the business. That way it's easy for them to adapt and help us managers
