    Approves of CEO

    I worked at River Island Clothing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good discount & uniform allowance.
    CEO has actually changed a few things over the course of the years after we all took a survey at the beginning of the year!

    Cons

    Higher Managment not very good.
    Salary was so low for what the expectations where.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop giving high managment positions to such patronising, vengeful, spiteful and horrible people such as the assistant manager and store manager as a team will never be a team in those circumstances!

    Pros

    discount! meeting new people. wearing your favourite clothes to work. outside of work opportunities

    Cons

    Management have there favourites and make it clear. not a friendly environment. short hours over lots of days. I once worked 3.5 hrs a day 5 days a week.

    Advice to Management

    to train the staff on how to be nice to others and not allow people with the same job be able to tell you what to do.
