    I have been working at Primark part-time

    I love my job in Penneys. They are a great company to work for . Ive worked for the past 16 years in O Connell st . The treat the staff with respect most of the time.

    Cons

    No staff discount . Communication between management and staff is often not there. Sometimes the staff are not consulted on visual merchandising which is wrong as the staff deal with the public more then the management

    Pros

    Good pay above NMW (London based) Fellow Retail assistant colleagues are very friendly

    Job is often repetitive, and because it is a busy store, one can spend hours tidying the same location for a lengthy period of time. Unpaid breaks No staff discount

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

    Pros

    the other staff that were on the same level as me were nice

    Cons

    no staff discount or incentives, bad management (multiple managers telling you to do different things, sometimes no manager on my dept), very short staffed (on some days I was the only person on the entirety of mens accessories and then on top of this I was expected to help on menswear), they would purposely make shifts 15 mins shorter than the entitled break period so we would not get adequate breaks, customers were rude and would often speak down to you and throw stuff on the floor for you to clean up, when working after closing they would turn the heating and lights off making it uncomfortable to work and by the end of my time working here I had been referred to occupational health due to it making my mental health worse and physio due to developing back problems while working here.
