    store management gets underpaid- team manager gets paid £7.99 wheras as a healthcare advisor gets paid £7.94 dispenser gets paid £8.47
    customers take advantage of the refund
    most products are expensive
    they need to stop doing price comparison with other reatailers

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Nottingham, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Nottingham, England (UK)

    I worked at Boots (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company values
    Customer focused
    Regular pay days
    Good discounts

    Cons

    Company values are constantly discussed - these values are not always delivered from the top of the organisation
    Low pay compared to other similar roles with other companies - hard to gain worklife balance, it's the norm to work all hours to constantly deliver
    It takes more than company discount to retain employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistency is a challenge for your focus - particularly performance rating within teams.
    The new Boots approach has changed the way people feel about working for you.
    People feel undervalued.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
