    I worked at Primark part-time

    Pros

    Supportive managers and supervisors, good-ish pay, overtime often available.

    Cons

    Kinda difficult to mingle in with existing staff, random meetings you don't know if you need to go to, leaves are complicated.

    Former Employee - Retail Sales Associate in Liverpool, England

    I worked at Primark part-time

    Pros

    Very easy to pick up overtime, wasn't a bad job

    Cons

    Didn't mention in the interview that part time workers were contracted to work all bank holidays. Not very flexibly, managers played favourites

    I worked at Primark part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Easy - Friendly people - Could get overtime easily - Staff area was lovely - Lots of training - Paid well at the time, I was 18 and it was 2016 though Honestly, I think people assume working a Primark would be awful but it really isn't.

    Cons

    - Customers were sometimes a nightmare - Can't say it was absolutely riveting
