    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Primark part-time

    Pros

    There is a fun atmosphere with good management and a flexible overtime rota and Primark offers calming work.

    Cons

    My only con that I must say that I experienced at my time at Priamrk is that the pay is very low.

    Advice to Management

    I would seriously rethink the pay that you are giving employees as it is not nearly enough to live on.
