The job is great, the management isn't.

Pros

Good incentive Work In a fast past environment Good product knowledge training Inspiring teammates

Cons

Annoying guest asking irrelevant questions Horrible manager, I should say dictator. No upper management support No chance of promotion even if you work super hard.

Advice to Management

Get involved with the feedback from the beauty advisors. We work the hardest and get the least recognition. Does not feel like a giant team AT ALL.

    I worked at Boots full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very friendly staff, nice people to work with, a good strong brand reputation, attracts a wide range of customers, makes it a comfortable environment to work in. Good discount benefits on Boots and Non-Boots products, opportunities for promotion by joining management schemes

    Cons

    Pay is rather low, management schemes incentives are not great, it is best to do it more out of enjoyment than for the money.

    Advice to Management

    The company was better when I started, due to the takeover by alliance and another American company afterwards, the benefits got worse, good staff left, some who had been there more than 20 years, sadly it seems to be getting worse.

    Pros

    Nothing to do so you can spend most of your time walking to the staff shop and back! Managers have no idea what's going on and spend a lot of time in "meetings" so you can really coast by... some people don't like it but I personally love it! Very inclusive. As a gay man I don't feel I can't be myself!!

    Cons

    Bus takes ages! Sometimes there is a bit too much people watching going on, really, it's like, get a life! Pay could be better but I suppose I Don't do a lot!!!

    Advice to Management

    I don't know what to say, I don't want to jeapordise my easy life!
