    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Primark (New York, NY (US)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    First interview over the phone and 2nd interview face time. Both interview was standard questions and deep driving into your background history. Really positive experience. I had three more interviews face to face with VP HR ,VP Operations and two Store Managers. They fly you out to their flag ship store in Boston. The Challenges was the language barrier and understanding from the different cultures of management. Overall, the last interview was rushed summing up two five structure questions and a SWOT Analysis of the store. Trying to complete all that in 60mins in order to make my flight. This was not great planning for all the interviews I had in one day concerning time lines, in order not to feel rushed!

    Interview

    It was very positive! Everyone was nice and friendly. We both asked each other questions! An interview should not be one sided remember you are also interviewing the employer. They went over benefits, hours, and job duties!

    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Freehold, NJ (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Primark (Freehold, NJ (US)).

    Interview

    Let me put it this way - I never even made it to the interview. I received an e-mail from Primark prompting me to choose an interview date through e-mail. The link was broken and about a week later, I was contacted by someone from the store. It seems that each store has a P&C Supervisor (kind of like HR) and I was e-mailing with them directly regarding the position. I currently work full-time in a salaried postion and explained that I was very interested in the Visual position, however I wanted to find out the pay range as well as if it was a salaried or hourly position to make sure it was inline with what I was looking for. My resume is VERY overqualified for the position at hand so I wanted to make sure I was not wasting mine or the interviewers time. He never answered. I found it super unprofessional on his part, especially since he was quickly responding to my e-mail's before I inquired about the pay. As an HR Supervisor, you should be open to the fact that candidates have questions about the position before actually coming in for the interview. I would not recommend.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Primark (King of Prussia, PA (US)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I got a call from recruiter for an interview. The person who interviewed me seems very lost and didn't know where to start. I answered all question (basic question) then she asked me how much am I looking to get paid. I told her that I am open to discussed based on the company pay grade. She didn't know what to respond. I thank her for her time and left the place. They need more training and they want to pay way cheaper than McDonald's. Sorry can't do that!!!

    Retail Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Primark (Boston, MA (US)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process for me was fun and smooth. I interviewed as a retail assistant so it was a survey first to make sure you're a good fit for the company. Then you get an email to schedule a phone interview. After the phone interview (if you pass), they ask you to formally submit a resume/fill out an application for it to be reviewed. I applied the summer before they opened and my phone interviewer said she wasn't going to wait for my application to be reviewed and just send me to the next step which was meeting/interviewing with the managers and coaches from Europe. I had a little interview/chat with them and then I received an email inviting me to join the Primark team and then join them at a three day orientation. I know the process is a little different now that the store is open, but for me, it was a very positive experience.
