    I worked at River Island Clothing part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Staff discount (40%) and uniform (free). Good work-life balance. Quick progression to L2 but not further. Nice to be able to be independent (ops manager).

    Cons

    Not a lot of overtime. No recognition or progression past L2 stage unless willing to relocate. Too much work and not enough pay. Hourly rate should be increased even more for L2's.

    I have been working at River Island Clothing part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The discount is a massive plus with 40% off, free uniform every season too with an allowance dependant on your contracted days. The store I work in has an amazing team and I genuinely enjoy working with them.

    Cons

    I've been a manager and know how much they can take advantage of you, expecting you to stay late without any notice etc. At times it can be really stressful as management too.

    I worked at River Island Clothing full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free uniform allocation and further staff discount privilege. Great atmosphere to work in as everyone tends to get along. No pressure providing you make an effort. Easy and simple job eg maintain a tidy floor, interact with customers, process deliveries, stock replenishment etc.

    Cons

    Like any job in retail it can be a long day if it isn't busy with customers. You will need to be highly self motivated. Hard to progress - someone has to leave for you to be able to be considered for promotion. Can be hard to get time off for holidays/random days off.
