I have been working at River Island Clothing full-time (More than a year)
Free uniform, great discount, being part of a fashion forward business.
Need to be flexible as to support the business needs.
Too many different opinions on different aspects of the store can cause extended workload for teams and can be frustrating.
Not enough hours in a day. 😕
Advice to Management
Tailor training to the individuals role. Consistency needed in people skills from the top down in order to get the best from your staff and to create a happy driven work force.
I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at River Island Clothing (Stirling, Scotland (UK)) in May 2017.
I seen advert on shop window , took application and returned it the same day (Friday) on the Monday I got a call asking me to call in the shop the Thursday afternoon ( Stirling,Scotland). I've just left now and it was a breeze. I literally spent days looking for advice especially on what to wear! I usually wear very formal to interviews but after looking on web everyone was advising casual so I went with it , i wore white adidas all stars (new so clean) denim skinny jeans from h n m & a river island pink/salmon Bardot too which o had bought the day I did the application so was still in store as "just arrived" also added a chocker and bag from RI. Only because I already had them ( go in store and look at what other staff wearing) nothing too formal I would advice. My interview was a one to pne which surprised me as from what I read i expected group/ when I got there and introduced myself she asked me to pick any full outfit from store . I went for black and white striped flare trouser with black crop top a detailed small clutch with matching small heel and studs , she asked to explain it I said I would wear for dinner and cocktails with friends or boyfriends also not to much for family event etc ,didn't choose much neck wear as accessories already was bold. I also said how I'd wear the items for more casual wear I.e with blazer etc. Definitely pick shoes and bag and appropriate jewellery;)
DONT PANIC LIKE I HAVE DONE ALL WEEK JUST RELAX AND BESELF. I'm a chatty person anyway so when it come to the questions she was like you covered that covered that hahaha I will know if I get it next week
