    • "lovely atmosphere, decent benefits"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Former Employee - Sales Advisor in Stirling, Scotland

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

        Pros

        Lovely managers, friendly and welcoming atmosphere, decent discount and uniform allowance. I worked there as a student and was very grateful the store manager was flexible on giving me a few weeks of unpaid leave for going home for the summer.

        Cons

        It was a bit slow at times (often on Sundays) and then manic whenever the sale was on, but that's retail for you!
