    4 hour shifts are very common in shops. I work at M&S, me and many others only work 4 hours a day during the busy periods (10-2), the annoying thing with working with retail is you can't choose your hours i'm afraid.
    I work at M&S too, but I chose my contracted hours, and if I want any overtime, they let me choose that too
    Must be my store being weird lol

    I think they offer you the hours they have available, when I passed my interview they only had 4 hrs 4 days a week slots-and I was desperate! They do often offer me extra hours, but I work on food and kinda hate it, so 4 hours is usually enough for me!

    actaully primark isnt non skilled retail work its bloody more hard work compared to other stores - its busy and your always on your feet!!

    i havent been told about the wage and i can easily find another job if i went out and gave my cvs. i got primark by just applying online and having been selected out of 500 people says it all. Only 80 got chosen so that is somefink.

    so you can shut up your lame
    a) you can't spell (actually,something, you're(x2), 'bloody more hard work' is grammatically wrong,etc, etc.)
    b) Do you need specialist training to work there?
    No, therefore it is called non-skilled.
    c) 'lame' is crap american slang that went out of date in the late '90s.

    I would of loved those hours at Marks & sparks. They only had 30 odd a week though when I applied.
    Ive now got the 10-2, 4 days a week at Sainsburys. My dream. Those are ideal for single mums those hours. 16 per week. I feel like the cat that got the cream, how tragic! lol

    As you work in primark i wanted to know if primark give people more than a for hour shift?

    Does anyone get 6 hours or 8 hours shift (eg: 12pm-6pm) or is it only just for hours per shift for everyone???

    Primark pay isn't that good, try places like John Lewis which pay better.
