    Former Contractor - Retail Sales Assistant in Newbridge, Kildare

    I worked at Primark for less than a year

    Pros

    Great HR and training opportunities Lunch breaks adhered to Work isn't that difficult

    Cons

    Management can tend to gossip or chat about Christmas staff to older staff Hours are long and not portrayed in such way during the interview process (2-11pm)

    Advice to Management

    Remind managers that they are managers not the friends of the employees therefore reduces the feeling of favoritism and gossiping making the workplace hard to be in sometimes
