Not very friendly staff
My time working at River Island was a good experience but the staff wasn't very friendly towards me. One of the staff spoke to me very rudely and basically told me to do my task elsewhere away from her but didn't say please and spoke down at me in front of customers. Other staff like management weren't very warm or welcoming and also spoke quite rudely. They never smiled or asked how you were doing.

Awful place to work no care for your well-being or you as an individual , worked there 8 years and was horrible. Managers are a joke and staff treated like numbers. Avoid!!!
Sales Advisor in Nottinghamshire
Alright i guess....
I started working there when I was 18. The pay wasn't necessarily awful as it was above minimum wage but was a lot less than the other employees. They work younger employees until they are run off their feet whilst the older employees stand around having a chat. The management team was awful to me apart from one who helped calm my anxiety from time to time, the other told me to hand my notice in as I fell ill during a shift and had a major anxiety attack. It's a lot better at Christmas when it is busy but afterwards you literally stand twiddling your thumbs waiting for your shift to end. In the end I found out that it wasn't worth my time, I needed money and they refused point blank to give me anymore hours. They also expected me to drop everything to cover a shift which was hard as I was in college at the time. Was gutted to leave some of the staff at they were amazing, but the management let me down and I didn't really fit in with their image. Recommend for seasonal work but not for the rest of the year.
