    I worked at River Island Clothing part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Staff discount and uniform allowance
    Great clothes and latest technology to use on the floor to help customers
    Some nice people to work with
    Pretty good pay

    Cons

    Management speak to you however they want and don’t genuinely care about there staff at all, very rude sometimes
    In a larger store being on one section like fitting rooms all the time..
    Staff form cliques

    Advice to Management

    Please give treat your staff better and create a nice environment for people to work in.
