    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Set shifts meant you could plan your life a bit better. It was good to see all the new products coming in.

    Cons

    Job can be very repetitive and stressful. Most of the managers stood around not doing much or hanging about in the main office. Also seemed to be a bit of favouritism. Not much scope for progression unless you’re liked and do lots of overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Consider lower level staff more. Stop creating issues where there aren’t any e.g. forcing hangers on to customers, etc.
