    Pros

    I had no experience working in optics and have been really looked after by all the staff and management I was chosen to go to London as part of a ‘face of boots’ scheme, fully funded by boots. It was an amazing experience!

    Cons

    E-Learning is a bit tedious but there’s nothing else they can do during covid so I suppose I’m happy with that too!

    Pros

    The team at Bradford are a fantastic team to work with. They were very welcoming and made me feel very comfortable when I first joined. They ensured I received good training from teaching me how to pre screen patients to dealing with customer queries furthermore if I had any questions regarding anything the team were always willing to help.

    Cons

    So far I have had no bad experience with the store as they are an amazing team to work with.

    Pros

    Great friendly staff, professional environment, diploma training, salary. Discount. Would work there again. Challenging so you don't get bored. Not your standard retail job.

    Cons

    Boots and opticians management in general are very focused on targets and making money alllll the time. Getting your holidays booked in with a huge team means you got to be quick to do so and any additional days you need off that you didn't yet book can be challenging they are very strict with how many ppl are off at the same time.
