    I have been working at Boots part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible shifts
    Holiday pay
    Minimal supervision
    Flexibility of tactics
    As a Beauty Adviser you are the face of Boots in your select Target store. In my market, people were very unfamiliar with the Brand and it was hard to "sell" consumers to trust something versus a project which was already "sold" to them by a commercial. Rave reviews and reliable products really help the cause.

    Cons

    Minimal samples
    time goes by VERY slow
    stand on feet all shift
    information overload
    no training for makeup application
    sometimes you feel like you are a target customer service associate. many customers do not realize that you are NOT a target employee.. a lot of time i caught myself directing customers all around the store, at times i was even asked to walk them to different departments. they also ask for advice on products you are not representing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More competitive compensation and weekly commission *versus monthly*. More ample sample cups should be distributed. More accessible "end cap" displays should be available during BA's on the clock shifts. Meetings should be in a more neutral location. It should be negotiated between the target team and the Boots BA different ways to make it clearer to customers that you are not a target salesfloor employee. more gratis should be allowed to boots reps.
    Keep up the good work selling a great product!
