Current Employee - Beauty Advisor in Los Angeles, CA

I have been working at Boots

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Pros

    - Good people that work here.
    - Good company to work for.
    - A lot of opportunities.
    - Good discount card scheme.

    Cons

    - Poor salary progression/rewards process - needs to be improved.
    - Too slow to implement anything.
    - Too many processes. No trust to actually deliver.
    - Too political.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve salary progression for young people (and others) coming into your business. Salaries are not in line with other companies in the market. A lot of people leaving due to higher salaries elsewhere.

    I have been working at Boots full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really proud that we always put customers first in all that we do, their needs really lead our decision making.
    Great opportunity to progress within the business and support from senior leaders in personal development.
    Great atmosphere at work and open plan office make being at work enjoyable.
    Cheesy I know but everyone is genuinely lovely to work with. Everyone cares about each other.
    Staff discount is great and the rewards offered to colleagues that do a great job such as recognition schemes/bonus etc

    Cons

    Salary isn't the most competitive but this is likely due to Nottingham location vs London.
    IT systems are terrible and this sometimes prevents us from doing our job in the best way.
    Some teams are still quite hiarchical which makes decision making and project ownership sometimes difficult.
