    Avantages

    Payroll/Summer Fridays
    Er, that's about it

    Inconvénients

    Bullying
    Lack of opportunities
    Poor management
    Intimidation
    Bullying
    Advertising a person's job whilst they are still there and not telling them.
    Constant threats about losing your job.
    Pay is laughable.
    Crappy support payments and unrealistic expectations.
    Dull, dull, dull.
    Permanent staff treated very badly compared to contractors.
    Contractors have been shafted too.
    Massive turnover of staff.
    Forcing older staff out of the company.
    Unable to retain the new recruits.
    Give holiday, but expect you to just drop it for no compensation if they need you in.
    Unable to speak freely or criticise the regime - only very positive comments are allowed.
    HR are pathetic and seem to encourage the management's terrible behaviour, rather than trying to stop it.
    IT/RI Tech at River Island is Hell - morale is low, management are dictatorial and everyone is frightened.
    Please don't join this terrible company.

    Conseils à la direction

    Open your eyes and spend some time on the shop floor.
    Listen to your leavers' interviews and act on them
    Take a very close look at your senior management - you have some very bad apples.
    Take the bullying problems you have at your company seriously.
    Be aware you are pushing some people to breaking point/breakdowns because of the bullying and intimidation.

    Je travaille chez River Island Clothing à plein temps (Pendant plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    I work with a small team of around 20 people.
    Collectively everyone is so hard working so the work load does not just fall on one person.
    Amazing staff discount.

    Inconvénients

    The pay. Minimum wage only.
    Considering it is a company which turns over billions they should atleast give staff a pay rise.

    Conseils à la direction

    Stay the way you are.
    Keep all the bitchiness out and everyone will be happy.

    J'ai travaillé chez River Island Clothing à temps partiel (Pendant plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at River Island Buchanan Galleries, it has allowed me the flexibility to study whilst earning money in an environment I have thrived in. I have built great relationships, and with the support of the management team built on my retail knowledge which has supported my degree. They continually share best practice and encourage you to progress within the business should the opportunity arise. They guide us through decisions, allowing us to have a say before anything is implemented. This ensures that we are engaged as a team.
    If the opportunity ever arises I would love to return after my gap year.
    Great staff discount - 40%
    Uniform allowance quarterly - 100%

    Inconvénients

    Behaviour of peers - aslong as you don’t allow yourself to be easily influenced by the negativity of your peer group you will enjoy your time here.
    Pay could also be more in line with industry standard

    Conseils à la direction

    You have a great way of taking people with you and gaining buy in along the way. Continue to share the great wealth of knowledge you all have in the retail sector, the people who want to further their careers in this industry will thrive on it, as I have. Don’t allow the negative comments of some of the staff be a reflection on you as it couldn’t be further from the truth. I can’t thank you enough for your support over the years.

    Point de vue négatif

    J'ai travaillé chez River Island Clothing à temps partiel (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    • Low effort if you are conscientious
    • Employee demographic are young people — good for building experience and learning social skills
    • Staff discounts and bonuses are quite generous

    Inconvénients

    • Very busy hours with minimal rotation, making for overworked employees
    • Stressful in and out of management – low stress threshold meant very passive aggressive remarks and conversations
    • Poor micromanagement of employees
    • Disappointing skill floor. Not much experience to build upon once you master the basics

    Conseils à la direction

    Hire better management. Don’t scrounge off on and hire more competent employees to fill out weekly totals and work. Finally, understand people want to get the job done. Make more effort to make seminal connections with your employees.
