    I have been working at River Island Clothing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Always busy. 40% staff discount. Room for extra circular training at own discretion. Good for overtime.

    Cons

    Employee hierarchy lacking structure. LVL 2's are not classed as management yet are expected to do the same work as a manager but don't receive the same pay or benefits as a manager. If you mention this you will be outted from the 'team'.
