    I have been working at Boots part-time

    Pros

    Generous discount rate. Good holiday hours. There is a 'feel-good-feeling' about working for a brand which is very valued by its customers. There is a lot of opportunity for career progression. I started as a customer assistant and progressed onto a qualified role as a pharmacy advisor which is accredited by the GPhC. Could progress from there onto Pharmacy Technician.

    Cons

    VERY limited staff numbers. Unrealistic targets set in ALL departments. Makes you feel undervalued whilst doing a 3 person job on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about staff wellbeing. Attitudes can be dehumanising

    Meet lovely people, get a chance to gain experience in customer service. Pay is good especially for under 18 and under 21.
