    Current Employee - Agency Attorney I 

    I have been working at Boots full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Huge company so multiple people to turn to for support. Someone will always have an answer and never feel alone

    Cons

    The way they negotiate salary is wrong - huge salary offered to externals to entice people to join but nothing offered to loyal employees and not willing to negotiate salary 90% of time. Very pushy on business targets almost to the point of putting patient safety at risk

    Pros

    Great team, a few remaining old-school managers who really embody Boot's values, opportunity to push yourself with challenges.

    Cons

    low pay, low holidays, high scrutiny for sickness, high stress levels and lack of management with those who are not capable of the role or support for you when trying to manage a challenging business.

  10. "First Job"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Customer Assistant in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales

    I worked at Boots full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A fair employer - no serious complaints

    Cons

    Pay seems low, when considering the variety of tasks you must undertake - your tasks will extend beyond the shop floor and can include demanding manual tasks, such as in the stock room
