    I worked at Boots as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Other sales assistants and some managers are friendly and easy to get along with

    Cons

    * Only allowed 1 break when working 12 hours even though I was 17
    * Blackmailed to work evenings after college re-stocking shelves (manager told me she wouldn't be able to 'find' me any more hours to work if I didn't do evening as well as both saturday (12 hours) and sunday (7 hours)
    * They forgot to pay me on numerous occasions. I am still owed over £500
    * When I was being sick in work, one manager forced me to take medicine from the pharmacy and get back to work
    *Other sales assistants were treated in the same way
    * Manager shouted at most people (bullying)

    Pros

    It is a well organized company.

    They don't respect their employees, they are slave drivers
