Retail Assistant- Sales Floor Interview

Anonymous Employee

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Primark in July 2015.

Interview

Applied for the second time and got an email hours later asking me to go to an interview 2 weeks later. Went to customer services as directed where I was told to go to the fitting rooms where someone will take me up. I was left waiting for about 5 minutes in the canteen before being called in for the interview with the head of HR. She was very nice and went through the questions quickly. She left briefly to take a copy of my passport before returning to give me the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Primark (London, England (UK)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process consists in three parts. First of all, you will be asked to present yourself, you should expect to talk about your relevant experiences for the job. Bear in mind to stress how important was to deliver a great customer service in your previous job and how successfully you achieved the result.
    Secondly, the will go through several questions about your previous roles. Be prepared with clear and concise explanations.

    Finally, they will ask HR questions. They have a sort of form to fill with 3 questions for each topic. The interviewer will choose one of the three questions. All the questions have been already reported here. I have studied for my interview preparing an answer for each question. Important: remind to use the STAR structure. You should be ready to "serve" an example for each question. Doesn't matter if it comes from real experience or not. It should look real and pertinent to the topic.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Primark in September 2015.

    Interview

    My application was completed online along with some questionnaire. After 2 days of waiting, finally received an email about interview confirmation.

    Went to primark told them I've got interview, staff member took me to canteen and I've been waiting 5 minutes for the interviewer. Firstly got asked for my personal documents and few simple questions such as if I had any criminal convictions. Then we moved to another section which was basically about working hours which I have already provided on my application form, after that we went to interview questions. Since it was my first interview I was not nervous as I thought I will be. The interviewer was nice but did not helped me when I had no answer to certain questions and I was improvising. After an interview I've been asked if I have any questions and that I will be contacted very soon whether or not I have been accepted.
