    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Primark (Trenton, NJ (US)).

    Interview

    The interview process was not at all that bad. First I filled out the application online, got an email saying they were intersted and would get a call. Got the call same or next day and then another email setting up the instore interview. Went to the interview the following week, which was a group one but ended up doing a solo at the end of it with the basic questions. They said they would get back in contact and a few days to week later they asked for a second interview with the store/department manager. (this all depends on your position applying for.... Retail and stock probably not). So went back for that (this is like week three now) and had the interview with a D.M. As the main person wasn't there. So had that interview and was told I could stay and wait for the person wanting to interview me or I could go and come back 😐😕. So I waited like an hour and half and finally meet to other manager who did yet another interview( BUT I MEAN THEY WERE BASIC INTERVIEW QUESTIONS.... So). After that I really didn't hear anything from them so I kinda called support and they said I was still in the system being considered or the manager was on vacation(either or). However, I finally heard back from them almost another week later with the offer. I Wanted to counter the offer but I accepted as it was already a decent offer. I received ll the orientation stuff the next day via email. The orientation and start was the following week (this now week 4 ok using 5). The already offered extra hours more then I was getting as it was just opening, but I heard that extra hours can still be obtained though.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Primark (London, England (UK)) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Easy process, however the manager who interviewed me could barely read the question in English still managed to look me down and I can read shaking the head for whatever the reason.
    Not sure what they make of it as impossible to have a feedback of the interview but it was expected and glad I didnt pass it after see so called managers playing with mobile on the shop floor or conducting the interview with poor manners.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Primark (Stafford, England (UK)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Very quick, was a mass interview in a hall as they were opening a new store. Felt quite rushed, like they didn't want to get to know you, they just wanted you to answer the questions and then leave. It's not a massively formal process and it's one on one your not interviewed by a group of people.

    Supervisor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Primark (York, England (UK)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Very quick process for me, applied online and filled out a questionnaire, got invited for an interview the following week, emailed with a job offer a few days later and then I was doing the induction five days after that, eventually starting a week later! Because I applied for a supervisor role, the interview had to be with a manager but everyone was so friendly, i relaxed into it quite quickly. The interview consisted of mainly situational based questions so can be tricky of you don't have the required experience for the role.
