river island is a fun place to work in and to get to know the staff and people around you different days helping customers and I loved the atmosphere in the place but the downside of the job was when stress becomes a priority especially knowing how to deal with customers its very important to have a calm temper when dealing with every situation and I am good with people are being under pressure ..
I have worked there for 4 years and it has been a good job whilst I have been in sixth form and university. However, now I have finished university and want more hours they have not done well to support me and other colleauges with this change.

I worked here as a Christmas temp, they made me feel very unwelcome and didn't give me a chance to do much in the store. I had a personal reason for leaving and none of them where interested to find out more they basically put the phone down

It was a fun and productive place to work and the work and life balance was ideal. I had a set contract so i always knew what days and what hours i would work because they were always the same and i liked it that way because it met i could easily make plans around work hours without a problem.
