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

    Pros

    Good discount Can be a fun workplace , make great friends.

    Cons

    Staff are really overworked for the wage they receive. High targets. Don’t be fooled by the “uniform allowance” they expect you to wear head to toe river island brand, even though you only get your allowance every 3 months, you might only get 2 cheap tops and a pair of jeans if you’re lucky, maybe more depending on your hours and contract. Managers can be sometimes (not always)cliquey/favoritism can occur too, sometimes expect too much of their staff, not enough help when trying to complete difficult tasks.
