    So I work in primark and have been for about a month. This week is half term so I booked some overtime for which I've been put in fitting rooms? I don't usually work in fitting rooms, usually the sales floor so I don't know what to do.

    Do I need to be trained to work in the fitting rooms? I'm not really sure what to do? My shift is 11-3 in the fitting rooms for tomorrow's overtime. Will I just be clearing mainly?

    Usually we have announcements at the beginning of our shifts where we meet with supervisors and get told what we are doing for the day. However I never hear them for those working in fitting rooms? So at the beginning of my shift do I just go to the fitting rooms? But what if I'm the only person, I'm not going know what to do as I've never worked in fitting rooms before and I'm really anxious about what to do.

    Any help will be much appreciated, thank you.

    go in early and ask a supervisor
    or even ask someone beforehand that you know about how to work in them and if you need any training

    It would probably be a good idea to go in a bit early and ask your supervisor if you're anxious about it. However I used to work in fitting rooms and you'd stand at the outside bit, greet customers, give them the ticket thing that says the number of items and then sort the rails. It's probably different in different shops but where I worked I'd sort the items by department so they could be taken back out on to the shop floor. I was put on fitting rooms on my first shift and managed to pick it up okay though so try not to worry too much It may even be that they put you down on the rota wrong so probably best to ask! Good luck, I'm sure you'll be fine

    The other issue is that primark keep weekend and weekday staff separate. I usually work weekends but my overtime is in the week so I won't know the staff or who to ask

    Its nothing to worry about, all you do is supervise the fitting rooms and give number tags to customers who are trying the items on. However you do need to be vigilant and wary about this, as you will need to accurately check how many items they want to try on. This is just to prevent potential shoplifting (think like one). Just saying from experience as I used to work at Primark in the fitting rooms.
    Oh and also for hygiene reasons, DO NOT let them take underwear to try on (for women they can try on bras).
