    I worked at River Island Clothing part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly people
    Different jobs so dont get board
    Interacting with customers
    Discount on clothes
    Vouchers given as incentive for hard work

    Cons

    Managers are not the nicest and sometimes gave out to staff in front of customers which was very unprofessional.
    We were made approach customers which is not always what customers want

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more incentives for hard work. this could be individual vouchers or reward of a night out.

    I worked at River Island Clothing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    working in a really cool head office around all the lastest fashion, getting discounted clothes from head office shop, gym in building. general discount on all company clothes. Really being part of the process of getting clothes into stores.
    good canteen in office, parking available

    Cons

    very demanding, not much training given for Buyers Admin assistant role, thrown into the deep end.
    Buyers and other heads can be very patronizing and demanding. general very high stress levels
    Can work some very long days.
    office is out of city with not much around it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To have a separate training person for new all new starters in entry level positions as people on the departments do not have the time to train properly and it would be ideal to have a trainer to call or speak to when staring out
