Wat je gaat doen

Service met een glimlach

Kleding kopen zou leuk moeten zijn. Dus of je nu full-time, part-time of alleen in het weekend werkt, met je brede, natuurlijke glimlach kom je een heel eind.

Je geeft klanten jouw tijd, je helpt ze op alle mogelijke manieren om zich goed te voelen en er goed uit te zien – door de kleding die ze willen voor ze op te zoeken, door advies te geven over een outfit of door alternatieven voor te stellen.

Geen moeite is je te veel… daarom vergeten klanten je niet.

Alles in beweging

Het gaat er snel en hectisch maar met veel lol aan toe bij Primark. Mensen die houden van kwaliteit voor een betaalbare prijs, logisch dat het dan druk is!

Je houdt klanten die wachten in beweging en zorgt ervoor dat alles soepel loopt, zodat klanten die hun perfecte outfit hebben gevonden zo snel mogelijk naar huis kunnen om ermee te pronken.

Er is altijd veel te doen, maar als je houdt van gevarieerd en actief werk, dan is dit jouw plek.

Je leert onze klanten kennen, houdt de voorraad netjes opgeruimd zodat ze kunnen vinden wat ze zoeken en biedt ook nog eens geweldige service.

Sterke werkethiek

Er is altijd iets te doen en vanaf het eerste moment ben je in beweging. Heb je daar de energie voor?

Oog voor mode
