    I worked at Primark full-time

    Pros

    Great salary (much better than any other similar retailer) Easy to pay monthly the VHI Excellent Company's pension contribution Lots of room for development - US and all over Europe

    Cons

    Very long hours (managers are expected to work over 48+ hours a week Ireland has not so good senior management, mostly "old school" and been there for 20+ years and impossible to move up and do different things. Managers has no support from HR. Department managers are expected to be by themselves and no help from HR is effectively provided.

      I worked at Primark part-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      There is a lot of diversity within the workers in the store. Great co-workers were helpful and were good work friends. The work you do is simple enough no matter what you do, but registers is perhaps my favorite thing to do. I worked in the Boston, MA location. Supervisors were nice.

      Cons

      Some people in P&C aren't as nice, maybe it's just my luck.

      Advice to Management

      Please be more personal with the Retail Supervisors and Retail Associates. This isn't a factory. Working for Primark has to be Easy, Caring AND Fun; not Hard, Careless, and boring.
