    They gave me a call setting a date for the interview. During the interview they told me to bring passport (right to work) and original NI letter/card. The interviewer first asked for details of my previous jobs, when I'm available, what I wish to get from primark. Then he asked 8 questions, some were scenario related and that's about it. He was friendly and made it feel really comfortable during the interview. I liked the fact that he explained the process of what happens after etc.

    Primark Sales Assistant - Weekend Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Primark (Sheffield, England (UK)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    In July 2016, my interview took place in a hotel and what happened first was that I sat in a room and watched a promotional video about Primark (after recieving my personal details, national insurance letter etc.)
    We then went into a big room with dozens of interviewers sitting on individual tables. My interviewer was really nice and when I had mentioned my aunt used to work for Primark, turned out that my aunt and the interviewer WORKED TOGETHER! So that was kind of a bonus. After the questions were said she asked about my hours and then I was off. I had my interview on a Saturday and received my offer email on the following Tuesday.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Primark in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and had an invite to interview less than a week later. I couldn't make the time that they had arranged as I was already away visiting family but they were extremely accommodating and quickly changed the day for me, which not many companies do. The interview lasted about 10-15 minutes. The interview was really relaxed - the interviewer was extremely friendly and as well as asking the questions also explained them a little bit which helps to guide the answers. He also gave me a chance to expand on my answers if he didn't think I'd said enough. I would say definitely research the company - I spoke a little bit about the charity work that the company does etc. and he seemed impressed that I had clearly done my research, and he also asked me if I knew how many countries they were in (luckily I did). All of the interview questions are marked out of 4, so make sure you really elaborate on your answers. I only had my interview 2 days ago so I haven't yet had a response, but it was overall probably the best interview I've had.
