    I worked at Boots full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Double discount day
    half day xmas shopping
    bonus (depending how you are performing)
    meeting people
    they some really good offers
    some stuff are cheap

    Cons

    cutting back on staff
    too much pressure on other team members
    always noticing the bad points
    company do not communicate enough apart from how the companys doing
    every year they mention about profit which they make alot at leat £1bn yet making more cut backs
    they bought a drug company in germany but have not mentioned to colleagues
    big bosses do not visit every store in their division only performing stores
    they always take customers side not staff even thou they know customer in wrong
    best company to work for they always give to the best stores which is unfair
    staff get yelled at but yet no action get taken
    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
    they should make there stuff cheap even by 2p if necessary
    all this company thinks about is profit 100%
    so many people regret working for this company its difficult to get out because of the job market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sort out your payscale for store management its really unfair
