    Anyways your english is pretty good, I understood what you said. Primark doesn't have steep entry requirements to work at, you just need to be able to work hard and be friendly to customers.

    They ask questions like why do you want to work here, your strengths and weaknesses, examples of times you've worked in a team / delivered excellent customer service / handled a difficult situation.

    It's impossible to say what shift you will get. It purely depends on when they need their staff. Quite often shift work changes every week so one week you could do an early shift and the next you work a late shift.

    There are better options than working for Primark. It is the lowest of the low as far as clothing goes.

    ABF (the owners of primark) are a very profitable company, I own £3000 worth of shares in ABF.
