I have been working at Boots full-time for more than a year

Pros

Quick progression if you are willing to work hard.

Cons

Pharmacy team members can be very clicky and self absorbed. Very wasteful practices regarding show material. Bit slow to embrace change. Not enough staff in medium sized stores.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to move on from rows of white shelves. Stop replacing whole cardboard stands when a sticker could update the offers.

    I worked at Boots part-time for less than a 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
