    I have been working at Boots part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy tasks,
    Till trained from day one,
    All other staff are friendly,
    Good pay for first job

    Cons

    Not trained on products.. you go in on your first day and customers ask you things you have no clue about
    The work you do goes unnoticed.. but if you do someone you shouldn't have or do something wrong, its noticed
    Managers have favorite members of staff, if you aren't one you'll be given a list of dirty work if you are one, you'll be doing nothing but chatting.. people who aren't favorites cannot chat or else they get warnings
