They’ll stockholm syndrome you in
Store level staff are generally wonderful, area managers have too many stores to be effective at their jobs but somehow we cope. Definitely needs more staff and hours, but it seems to be like that everywhere. Made some good friends in the job, definitely a close circle to run in. Job itself is easy enough if you work at the right store, some can be awful though.

No flexibility no work life balance
It's great when you can get workers to work. Okish incentives when KPIs are met most of the time deadlines are ridiculous and not doable. What's ok for one isn't necessarily ok for another. HO make the jobs more stressful then what it should be pretty uunealistic expectations.

Don't care about workers
A company that expects staff and managers to work extended hours, turn up when sick, do more than 7 days in a row then ask to work without it being timesheeted. The company can't decide what specials to run so just change them everyday. Company is run by a pack of morons

Great Co-Workers, Terrible Company.
My co-workers and managers are fantastic people and I really enjoy working with them. Unfortunately, Rivers itself is terrible. The upper management is incompetent, telling us to do store changes via emails riddled with spelling errors. These store changes are expected to be finished within an hour of receiving them even though they cut hours and usually you have to work on your own. They also forced every casual including myself to become part-time with 3 days' notice and never pay overtime despite working over my rostered hours every single week. I am treated as a casual with part-time pay. They've also refused maternity leave to a co-worker of mine despite her working with the company for a total of 3 years. I am hoping to leave very soon and wouldn't be surprised if this company goes under in the not too distant future.

Fast paced, Unrealistic expectations
Fast paced environment and you learn lots of ideal skills for future jobs. Upper management is ridiculous, having to do a store flip and price change while serving/recovery and must have high KPI's with no extra staff to get everything completed only for head office to change their minds every 5 seconds. Also very unreasonable and unrealistic expectations especially when there's only one person on their own for most of the day.
