Underpaid me, didn’t give me my required breaks
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Watford, Hertfordshire – 11 November 2017
I worked at Boots as a 16 year old student during the Christmas period, and it was the most unprofessional and disorganised businesses I’ve worked for.
While initially staff were friendly and helpful, I was underpaid by over £200 (which was almost half of my overall pay as a student and temporary worker), and managerial staff refused to deal with the issues when I brought it to their attention. Moreover, I was denied my legal half hour breaks per every 4 hours (which I required as an under 18 staff member).
I would also be expected to stay later at closing times to lock up, sometimes an extra half hour, and the company did not offer to pay for safe transport home for a young female worker... very unimpressive.
Unprofessional, underpaid, overworked
