Poor training, never received full training a constantly being given out to by a particular manager on stuff I was not trained on. Certain manager was rude, didn't take time to learn my name, would refuse to help and pick on me for anything he could find. Extremely poor management.
Pros
Handy shifts
Cons

Learned to have more confidence in myself my approaching customers and helping people I had never met before made it easier to talk to people I have never met before.

Store Manager (Current Employee) - Dublin
River island do not reward loyalty I’ve worked there as a Manager for 10+ years . There’s no pay rise on salary and the expectation from head office is ridiculous vs the hours allocated and work load . No Xmas bonus fur any staff just a chocolate hamper -no staff paid night out to reward all the hard work. The company need to start rewarding loyalty and experience.
Pros
Lovely teams in store staff are friendly . 40% discount for staff, 50% for Managers. Company is process driven so you learn loads
Cons
Long hours at Xmas. No work life balance -answering emails on days off .
