Hey. If you want to change your working hours at Primark you can do it just by going to hr? Or is there an alternative to do it online? For the moment I work Saturday's and Sunday's and I want to move my shifts for weekday.
Thank you!

Just ask your manager if they think it will be possible. Often weekends are where they need the most staff and the least people want to work so I wouldn't be sure you'd be able to change.

just speak to hr/ management - weekdays is generally full time staff mostly older experienced people wheras weekend staff are mostly part timers consisting of younger people mainly students.

most likely you can change considering how many people leave primark and needing new staff but might have to wait for changes to take place.

Oh good luck with that one. That's the reason I left (I wanted to go weekday to weekend) first of all they said I had to be working there at least a year before they'd even consider changing my hours then I would've had to put in a formal letter requesting the change and it wasn't likely it would've been approved

what you could do is leave and then just rejoin again with a new application with your new hours. honestly the amount of new people that start and the amount that leave isso many that you barely remember anyone who works there apart from those closest around you.

however, imo might be better off to apply somewhere else, like tesco where you can at least earn more than just the legal minimum with better perks

The store I work at barely ever hire new people...like they haven't even called any of the christmas temps back yet or anything..So when people leave they're massively understaffed and weren't (and still aren't considering I left in October) accepting new applications..

wow! youre store must see really low profits/ sales for them not to recrit more staff. in my store they recruit every 3 months. so many people start and leave like a revoving door. i think if not but all the xmas temps in my store were made permenant. we are all on minumum wage anyway so it doesnt cost much, especially for weekenders. its probably because weekday staff cost more money as in primark has to pay them pensions/ more benefits and stuff so probably thats why not tot too keen on weekday staff.

however, i should note that my store is in a university town so most weekend staff are students. might be different for your store.

good luck to you anyway! my advic is try anywhere else like supermarkets - much better pay for less work and better life too. i think tesco and asda aldi + more pay living wages for more or less all staff and not minumum wage like primark

It was the liverpool store which is surprising cause it's such a massive store! I was on more than minimum wage (for my age anyway) and the store wasn't struggling as far as i knew they just refused to recruit, i'd been keeping my eye on the website for when they started recruiting again and when i went in a few days ago my friend who still works there told me that since i'd left, loads more had left and no one had been replaced =/ Yeah I work for the uni now! So much better pay!

if you want to work for primark again just look at other stores on their careers site - theres loads near manchester whenever i check especially in selfridges trafford centre near manchester. managers instantly like to take on people whove worked at primark before as they dont need to retrain them much and know they can perform easily and quickly than new people.

i think the old primark system paid higher than minimum wage for permenant workers and minimum wage for temporary staff at xmas and only lower wages for under 18's and all other staff on same wage. im on minimum wage and so are others i think - well at least us newcomers are.we get paid according to what the legal minimum wage for that age bracket is. e.g.

YEAR 25 AND OVER - £7.20
21 TO 24 - £6.95
18 TO 20 - £5.55
UNDER 18 - £4.00
APPRENTICE - £3.40

i started quite new and i earn 6.95. i think people on the older system/ structure that primark used to pay slightly higher might still be in place for older employees but im not sure.

Not sure if the rules have changed but when I worked at Primark I had to put mine in writing.

I currently work for primark and the extra hours he’s working is probably just overtime hours which are optional and can be denied if he doesn’t want to do them.

This is a 5 year old thread btw.
