    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Primark (Birmingham, England (UK)).

    Interview

    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

    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, Co. Dublin
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Primark (Dublin, Co. Dublin).

    Interview

    Applied via an application form and didn't hear back from them for a few months.

    They called my home phone to invite me to interview and allowed me to pick a time that suited me.

    Had interview and had job offer within a day.

    Very swift process once interview offer is given but they often recruit for two seasons so applying before the season (summer and Christmas) can mean that you'll wait for the next recruitment campaign.

    Average Interview

    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.
