    Pros

    Excellent staff discounts. Absolutely wonderful staff who deserve far better treatment.

    Cons

    Long hours, difficulty getting any meal breaks,exploitative staff treatment and disgracefully low remuneration. If you are prepared to submissively do as your ordered you will probably be OK.

    Advice to Management

    Reinstate pharmacists as highly trained professionals. Get rid of the climate of fear which stalks the company and look after your staff, they are far better than you deserve.

    I have been working at Boots

    Pros

    Reasonable discount of 12.5 on regular items and i think 22.5 for Boots branded products. A few days of double discount per year.You are first to know about new products and sale/clearance products,

    Cons

    No chairs so you are standing most of the day. One of my managers didn't allow us to have bottles of water on the shop floor (apparently it was unprofessional). Too much bureaucracy and not enough independent thought on the managers side

    Advice to Management

    Keep to your promises you make at the start of the job. Employee satisfaction is just as important as customer satisfaction.
