Former Employee - Pharmacist Store Manager in Liverpool, England (UK)

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 part-time (less than a 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 !!
