    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Assistant Sales

    Former Contractor - Sales Assistant 

    I worked at Boots

    Pros

    From the first day you are immediately carrying out tasks, such as replacing stock and working at the tills. You are made a team player from the start. All other colleagues were more than willing to take time to train you and teach you how to complete your tasks.

    Cons

    I sometimes struggled to contact the new manager, more open lines of communication would help.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Boots for less than a year

    Pros

    Lovely staff on the shop floor and a nice fast paced environment

    Cons

    Problems are all at the hands of the management, feels unprofessional and uncomfortably patronising when they speak to you. They handle situations in a childish telling off way and add hostility to the environment that just wasn’t for me. They set unreasonable tasks in an unreasonable time frame and after being contracted 12 hours I was put on a 40 hour week. Once asked for a change they refused and made the rest of my time unpleasant.
