    I worked at Boots full-time

    Pros

    Boots is a lovely environment to work with and the management are very approachable and really do make you feel valued as part of the team. You get some wonderful benefits such as employee discount, incentives and the benefits box. I personally found that progression is far from limiting as long as the opportunities are available at the right time. For example during my three years at boots I was able to go from christmas temp, to full time customer assistant, to merchandising assistant as well as training in beauty and healthcare.

    Cons

    I think this largely depends on the store that you work in. The only con that I had was understaffing but that may be limited to my store only and was simply due to budget restraints. And of course you get the odd difficult customer but that comes with all forms of retail work.

    Pros

    Great staff discount
    Good working hours
    Easy interview process
    Loads of opportunities to work in different departments

    Cons

    Depends on which store you work at and the Management behaviour. During my time I worked at 5 different stores. Some stores were better to work at because the store manager was more understanding.

    I have been working at Boots part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Uniform supplied, rewards for sales achievements, friendly staff, strong customer care ethos

    Cons

    Management don’t always listen, limited ability to further career development (depending on department), limited opportunities for full time work even though the store is often very understaffed (utilise part time staff to fill additional hours without providing benefits that come with being a full time employee)

    Advice to Management

    Take on board staff advice and customer complaints to make improvements to the store, place more value on staff and make more full time positions available rather than scraping by relying on part time to work overtime
