    I have been working at Boots Opticians full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Training and foundation dispensing course provided provided out of store by the company. For retailer salaries are not to bad

    Cons

    After doing foundation store there is no training our support from majority of colleagues or manager. If you are good, pretend you're not. The managers will take advantage of the fact you are a quick learner, dedicated and organised and will use you to do their work and will promise you career development and a higher position in the future, when it comes to that, nothing happens and someone else not dedicated or passionate like you will get it instead and you just get a big stab on your back! Really bad life work balance! In one day you ar working for exemple from 9am-6pm and the other day you're doing a 2pm-11pm next day a 11am-7pm. It kills your system there are no set times to have meals! I had put 10kg since started working for boots and just have damadge my health!

    Pros

    Customers were nice. Got paid on time. Wasn't physically abused.

    Cons

    Egotistical trainers,who are more interested in going to hotels for meetings than actually training people. Pressure to sell is impossible to correlate with integrity
