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

Pros

Flexible shifts
Holiday pay
Minimal supervision
Flexibility of tactics
As a Beauty Adviser you are the face of Boots in your select Target store. In my market, people were very unfamiliar with the Brand and it was hard to "sell" consumers to trust something versus a project which was already "sold" to them by a commercial. Rave reviews and reliable products really help the cause.

Cons

Minimal samples
time goes by VERY slow
stand on feet all shift
information overload
no training for makeup application
sometimes you feel like you are a target customer service associate. many customers do not realize that you are NOT a target employee.. a lot of time i caught myself directing customers all around the store, at times i was even asked to walk them to different departments. they also ask for advice on products you are not representing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More competitive compensation and weekly commission *versus monthly*. More ample sample cups should be distributed. More accessible "end cap" displays should be available during BA's on the clock shifts. Meetings should be in a more neutral location. It should be negotiated between the target team and the Boots BA different ways to make it clearer to customers that you are not a target salesfloor employee. more gratis should be allowed to boots reps.
Keep up the good work selling a great product!

    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.
