    Pros

    In store team very good. Discount card for Boots. Boots annual benefits box.

    Cons

    Dishonest upper management team. Head office communications terrible, especially relating to lockdown and covid safety. Company shows little respect for staff, planned restructure of management April 2020 kept secret until furlough scheme reduced. Redundancies issued to staff that had been assisting the covid testing, and then internal jobs withheld by management until they had accepted severance. Unfair treatment to staff In terms of working hours, locations and favouratism.
