    I worked at Boots part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly staff easy to get along with.Discount is good but can mean you spend a lot of your wages back in store if you love make up and products..

    Cons

    Management are mostly unsympathetic and impersonal,hours are rubbish unless you have absolutely nothing else going on in your life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat staff as fodder. Give people more reasonable houra rather than having everyome on four hour shifts just because it's better for the company. When someone's father dies don't ask "so I can expect you in a few days after the funeral?"

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Boots full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You see career growth and always continuing education, always a new challenge. Working for the company one is always aware of new developments in the profession

    Cons

    The concentration is on targets, ie the numbers , not how they are achieved. Not a family atmosphere people always competing to get to targets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    support staff more , encourage new ideas, avoid cookie cutter expectations.

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
