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

    Interview

    It was a one-on-one interview. We went in to an office, took a seat and he asked me questions such as, "When you have had to provide excellent customer service?"

    "If we ran out of stock of an item a customer was looking for, what solutions would you provide the customer with?"

    "Why do you want to work here?"

    The questions asked were generic job interview questions. It was pretty straight forward and easy going. He was reading questions of a sheet of paper and writing down my answers. At the end of the interview he asked me, "is there anything you would like to ask?"
