      Pros

      Easy workday broken up by being alternated between different roles throughout the day ie. tills, floor, door etc Friendly staff and managers are quite accommodating

      Cons

      No set roster, working weekdays and most weekends Minimum hour contract so some weeks working full time hours but often going weeks with little to no hours spread out over the week.

      Pros

      Working at Primark has vastly increased by customer service and social and communication skills over the years. I've met friends for life and management are great to work with.

      Cons

      The hours can be quite demanding as a part time employee as shifts can end past 10pm multiple days a week.
