    Pros

    Great atmosphere and great team to build friendships in

    Cons

    Originally free benefits were made into salary sacrifices, training opportunities are subject to management favouritism, and management is constantly changing meaning there ends up being either alot of tension or someone having to upmanage without recognition.

    Pros

    Good discount on glasses. Free eye tests.

    Passive aggressive management. Lack of staff means you're doing multiple jobs at once. Before you've even finished one job you're forced onto another.

    Be wary of franchisees

    Pros

    Good product range to work from.

    Cons

    Absolutely horrific experience. Very poor pay and expected to work for free (staff training and meetings for example. Time back not offered either). Be careful of working for franchised stores as they make up their own rules and rights. Boots opticians and boots plc will not step in and assist with any issues. You have very few rights under 2 years of service with a franchisee manager. ***This review in no way reflects working for in-store Boots optician branches***
