    I've been given a job to work on the shop floor (womenswear) in Primark. I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to do at the start of my shift each day and what to do when I finish my shift. Am I supposed to go up to my Supervisor at the start of each shift to ask him/her what they want me to do for the shift? And when I finish my shift, do I have to notify my Supervisor that I'm leaving before I can go? Can I go without telling them? I work at a very big Primark store, so I hardly see my Supervisor throughout the day.

    I work in one of the smaller stores but I always go at the beginning asking what to do but I don’t ask to leave at the end of the day of the day or for for breaks the only time I notify them is if I’m leaving shop floor for a drink or something outside of my breaks

    I used to be a supervisor for Primark. As you get more into the job you will know what your main duties are like staying around tidying up, being available for customers and putting sizes out so if you don’t see your supervisor you should get on with those but realistically your supervisor whether busy or not should make time to come and see you at the start of your shift to ask how you are and discuss what they need you to do during your shift. At the end of your shift you should make time to see your supervisor and discuss what you did and didn’t get done, what still needs to be done so they can pass it onto the next person after your leave. If your supervisor isn’t around you can go home when your shift ends obviously but it reflects well on you if you take the time to pass on information, especially if you’d like to go for Supervisor yourself later on.

    I used to work in large stores - Birmingham, Sheffield Meadowhall and Nottingham. The general rule is you should report to a supervisor or a manager from start to finish. This is mainly for safety reasons - for emergencies such as a fire.
