    I have been working at Primark part-time

    Pros

    Excellent pay - all staff earn more than the minimum wage for 21-24 year olds, even if under 18 Colleagues good to get along with Overtime available

    Cons

    Significant lack of training Inconsistent management meetings - due for a meeting with a manager 3 weeks and 12 weeks after starting - been working for longer than this and have not had either Overtime is difficult to get - phone lines are always busy and you're lucky to get through to one person Customers can be especially awful, but on a customer facing role you must always maintain composure even when they call you rather cruel things.
