    oh right. maybe just prepare answers for the typical questions like "why do you think you'd be suited to this job, why do you want to work for primark, what would you do in xxx situation etc

    Not sure if this is too late...?
    I work at Primark, and the interview is nothing to worry about. They ask you to fill in an application form when you get there (or if you have already done it, then not :p:) and then they just read through it with you, confirming details. If you have any other questions about Primark let me know :p: I've been there nearly 18 months...!

    Does anyone know the pay rates for Primark. I know it's £4.25 an hour for 16-18 year-olds but I just turned 18 and I want to know how much I would get. I've heard from some people that it's £5.35 but someone else said that's the hourly rate for over 21. Can anyone help me out?

    Hiya.
    The pay rates vary depending on where you are in the country. For example, where we live 16-17 year olds get £3.58/h, 18-21s get £4.78/h, 22+s get £5.35/h, and supervisors get £5.75/h. 10 miles down the road, at the next nearest Primark, they get a bit more. They base it on the living costs in your particular area So, theoretically, in the more expensive places (accommodation wise), you get the most money.

    Thanx - I was sure I knew what the pay was but then my friend said that it was 4.45 - that's only 20p more than what 17-year-olds get! I knew she was wrong...:evilb:

    It does depend on the area though. Stores in London and especially central London will be paying more

    You go in and there's a tape thing telling you about Primark - watch out as they ask questions about the company or ask what you know about it. They give you a prep sheet telling you basically what they'll ask. One of them will be, "compare yourself to an object, colour, animal etc.. why?". My friend said music as she could be loud/quiet when appropriate, had different aspects to her personality just like music is made up of the lyrics/beat etc, and was liked by many! They asked a few generic questions too apparently. Out of the 5-6 of them, 2 went through for a 1 on 1 interview, which she got. She hears back this weekend! Good luck with yours!

    I just had my induction and will start my first shift on sat! the branch im working is at leicester! I went looking smart, there's no dress code! and when you are successful they will tell you what you should wear on the induction! its easy... they will ask you what are the main competitors of primark! say new look and peacock! i got that answer right, he was like good. cuz most people would say asda and matalan! they will ask you bout negative and positive on your previous work experience! so hope that helps! goodluck
