Current Employee - Optical Consultant

I have been working at Boots Opticians part-time

Pros

Friendly and helpful staff. Everyone works well together as a team and wants everyone to progress and learn.

Cons

More recently, it seems the business as a whole has become more profit focused this is compared to its previous main focus of customer service above everything, so it seems. Within my local store, we... don't agree with this.

Former Employee - Optical Assistant

I worked at Vision Express full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great progression opportunities Great benefits (free eye care every 12 months) Staff are treated well for targets

Cons

Company does not take bullying complaints seriously

Advice to Management

If two members of staff come to you about another who was abusing power, take it seriously before they quit
