    Pros

    Good staff discount good promotion on products Good on line learning Staff can progress but only if you in with the management of that particular branch of where you work !

    Cons

    Boots Pharmacy are only interested in targets not people . Pharmacy staff are pushed to braking point extreme pressure with no consistency & under staffed . Boots will not acknowledge poor managers decisions instead look for scapegoats to remove blame . expect staff to take on management duties but no extra support or pay ! Products knowledge is important ,but no training time given .

    Pros

    Good place to work for a part time job. Some people can be nice. Good discounts.

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Managers in my store were constantly watching and picking tiny problems with staff. Only employees who were backstabbing and pushy got promoted. It was very difficult to swap shifts, but complete flexibility was requested by the company.
