Interview

So the interview process was basically to see if you actually rate Primark as a serious company, which it actually is, or if you're just another person that has a low opinion of the company and everhthing they do. Some people assume that Primark is just some crap job which they don't need to take seriously and these people don't get hired. They can be really flexible and like hiring students

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Primark (Brighton, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Invited to interview via email. Interview lasts around 20 minutes and is performed by a manager or senior manager. It's one-to-one and relatively casual compared to interviews with other companies. Formal dress is not required. There are very few personal questions and they did not particularly review my CV. The main focus was on the scenario questions, e.g. 'Have you worked as part of a team?' or 'When did you demonstrate management skills?'.

    • Why did you leave your last job?   Answer Question
