You wont get a contract saying you'll be kept on for a good few years.
If it's christmas work it will be casual, which basically means you'll be kicked out when they don't need you anymore.
If you get your head down and impress then they may offer you a contract, but that certainly doesn't guarantee you a "Contract for a good few years". It will be a contract under normal terms and conditions for their staff.
The night shift would involve pulling stock (from the deliveries) to be packed out in the morning, probably doing a good bit of packing out yourselves, making sure the entire store is immaculate and doing returns from the fitting rooms etc. Not a massive amount of fun. Primark have nightpack all year round, they hire hundreds of christmas staff per store, just keep the head down and do a good job and you might be kept on. If you were, you would not immediately be given a permanent contract but another temporary one.

I've just been hired to do night shift at Sainsbury's (which pays less than that! psh. and 9pm - 7am) and I've been told it is basically just restocking everything and make the store is clean etc.
Yeah, taking deliveries off the lorries and replenishing the shelves so we in online can come in at 6am and strip them again!
