    It was pretty quick with the woman who interviewed me. She was pretty nice and wrote things down on the tablet.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Primark (New York, NY (US)) in January 2017.

    Found an ad on Craigslist for the new location in Staten Island, so I went ahead and applied. Weeks later, I got an email to schedule a phone interview. It was easy and she went ahead and invited me for a face to face interview. I received an email and scheduled the time and went. They asked general retail questions. It was very easy. The interview was on Tuesday, and I hear back on Friday with a call that I got the job! The pay is 12.50/hr which is great!
