I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Primark (Boston, MA (US)) in August 2017.

The woman was somewhat rude and didn't care about what I had to say. She didn't respond with more than one or two words before moving onto the next interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Primark (Boston, MA (US)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    This was a hiring event and my interviewer was very professional. They sat us down in a room to watch an informative video on what Primark was as a retail company.
     I had to apply online answering scenario questions, then it was a phone interview, and finally an onsite interview. The process between applying online to getting an onsite interview was within 2 weeks.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Primark (London, England (UK)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Really easy and simple process! Came 15 mins early with all the necessary documents in hand. I was taken down to their HR (I assume from how it looked) and was interviewed after the manager photocopied my documents. I was then lead to a room and was spoken to firstly about my available hours. I originally applied for mon-fri shifts which wouldve been around my uni times but was told they could not cater to those times. Luckily she then told me shed interview me for a weekend role instead! She was very lovely and we was laughing about my previous job roles. All together just a casual conversation rather than an interview. The questions that did come up were very basic questions like why do you want to work here? What qualities do you have? then some situational questions like "a woman has been waiting in line and is becoming very agitated with how long it is taking, what would you do?" or something like that.
    Just be bubbly and fun, and think of the process as just a casual conversation!
