I worked at Boots part-time (more than 5 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Fairness - Management in stores do not know the word

    I have been working at Boots part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Staff Discount , floor staff are friendly.

    Cons

    Fairness - those in the 'in-crowd' are looked after, holidays, hours, freebies etc
    If you are happy to stand all day, have no seats to sit on, not allowed water (without leaving your post), yet work in a hot house - then BOOTS is the place for you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BOOTS is a Health related business - how about passing some of that concern onto your staff.
    Sort refund policies - OUR company is being taken for a ride, we are giving away money - you can get double refunds - ask for a gift receipt - steal the item - return one with the receipt and one with a gift receipt - I have seen it done !!
