    I have been working at Boots Opticians full-time

    Pros

    As per any job the staff you work with name or break the job you work at. I work with some good staff members which make it good. Pay is ok but I do 4 long days 9-7 so I get 3 days off a week.

    Cons

    Management tends to stay in the office Deal with complaints yourself, managers can’t be bothered. Same thing everyday

    I worked at Boots Opticians

    Pros

    Good pay, that's all I can say

    Cons

    When I got the job I was excited to start a new chapter in my life, I had looked up on the job and knew it would be something I would enjoy doing. But I was mistaken, on my first day I was told to sort out files this lasted all week, I understood that you start off with the rubbish jobs and work your way up, but this was different i was told I would get training but never did I got told I would shadow someone but never did, I was stuck out the back sorting things for days but when it got busy I would get told to go on the shop floor and help even though I had no training and had no idea what I was doing. In the space of two weeks my confidence had dropped because I felt I was taken seriously. On my 3rd week I got called into a room and told I was getting let go, his words were " I have no potental in a customer service enviroment", would never recommend to a friend, maybe other stores are better but the one I was in was terrible.
