    I worked at Primark part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Penney’s is a great place to work. Great benefits. Good Pay - goes up every year(max 5 years) once made permanent. Fantastic staff.

    Cons

    Work-Life balance isn’t the best. As it’s shift work, you’re not guaranteed certain days off a week. Personally didn’t like that you could work late shifts and the next day do an early, found it very difficult.

    Advice to Management

    More focus needed on the wellbeing of your staff.

    I worked at Primark part-time

    Pros

    Always accommodating with college hours Never put pressure to have work done when the store is busy Managers very approachable and available to help

    Cons

    Sometimes have to work long hours and finish late

    Advice to Management

    Readjust how to deal out roster, some people only get early shifts and some people only get late shifts. It'd be better if every month, an employee had one early Saturday, one mid and one late and then a wild card for the last one!
