    Just been invited to a job interview after completing an application online for Primark retail assistant. Any tips for clothing and for the interview in general? Really nervous!

    I actually have several friends who have worked in primark, I for one applied and was offered an interview, but I didn't attend it for personal reasons.

    The test they give you essentially denotes your value to them in a way that means much more than most of the interview. If you were offered an interview, you will get the job as long as you're well spoken and preferably not awkward.

    Wear nice clothes, for the interview I'd recommend smart casual. Shake the interviewers hand and make sure you have a good breakfast because you may need to think on your feet, daydreaming is no good.

    Good luck in the interview, they pay very well especially if you happen to be under 18, which I was at the time. Not the most laborious of jobs either. Let me know if you get it!

    Thanks a lot mate! Great tips and a bit motivating to know it's not as nervy as people think it is! I hope everything goes well! Will definitely let you know.
