    I applied online. I interviewed at Primark.

    Interview

    It was pretty easy.. it was simple questions like scenario questions and why you wanna work here. It was a phone interview so it was less scary but it’s okay if you mess up because it’s still a interview and you get nervous

    Retail Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Primark (New York, NY (US)) in May 2020.

    Interview

    The interview is relatively short and easy, as it's an open interview of sorts. They give you about five minutes with your interviewer, and they ask you basic questions about your interest in the company and a way you've helped others around you. They'll also ask about your lateness and your general availability.

    People & Culture Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunrise, FL (US)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Primark (Sunrise, FL (US)) in May 2020.

    Interview

    After applying I had 1 phone interview followed by 2 separate video interviews. Then I had 1 more "interview" but it was really just a quick video call so I could see the hiring manager. The whole process took about 4-6 weeks. The hiring manager rescheduled my phone interview a total of 3 times. Afterward, I received an offer.

    Reasons for Declining

    After the hiring manager rescheduled my phone interview twice, it made me hesitate to continue since that would be the person I would directly report to. But ultimately I thought the company was very interesting and decided to continue. Then when I was supposed to have the final video interview with that hiring manager, I felt as if they did not take it seriously. They video called me late from their car and were walking into the store. It was maybe a 5-minute video call. I felt they didn't take that last call seriously. When I received an offer I felt in my gut that it wasn't going to necessarily be a good fit and unfortunately decided to decline.

    P&C Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Primark (Boston, MA (US)).

    Interview

    Phone screen, then in person interview. Another phone screen with a new recruiter. This was such a waste of time, originally applied to HR assistant role and supervisor role, got called back for supervisor and they told me I was too Junior.... well I applied to both roles yet they invited me to interview for supervisor. Why waste my time and theirs? Such a stupid process I wish I never even started the conversation with Primark. Don’t waste your time, they’ve been trying to fill the role for 6 months now. Clearly there’s a issue with their hiring process... learn how to recognize talent... who the hell says they only hire minorities for assistant positions and white folk for management positions openly like that...... stay away from Primark. They are closet racist

    I came dressing causally. I had studied for the interview questions I was so nervous that I felt like I was talking gibberish. But they called me later that day offering me a position

    Retail Sales Assistant Interview

    Interview

    I applied online and got a email less than a week for an invite for an interview. It told me to confirm a time between 10 am and 3pm in which I did. I didn’t get a response back. I got there and there was a lot of people, it was expected for there to be 150 interviewees. They had us come up in groups due to limited amount of seating, then we were called one-by-one and were interviewed by one of the 4 interviewers. They were also interviewing two positions, supervisor and retail assistant. During the interview I was asked 3 questions then told they would get back to people by the following week. I feel the interviews were rushed because of the amount of interviews they had to get through.
