Wasn`t all that bad working with the company, only that I had to do the same job repetitively every day. I did get to do other jobs from time to time in the end.

Epos Developer (Former Employee) –  Nottingham27 February 2018
Boots are an innovative company. The people that work there want to be the first to do something, they do not wait for other companies to do it first. This means that you are constantly being exposed to and asked to contribute groundbreaking ideas. The feeling you get from that is one of knowing that you are working in a team that is the best in the world at what it does.
Pros
A forward thinking Company not afraid to try new things
Cons
It is difficult to change jobs internally because no one wants to leave

Jambuster (Current Employee) –  Nottingham, Nottinghamshire5 February 2018
My role is to keep the automative machinery moving.
Full training is provided, but no any further opportunities to develop your skills. The salary is not competitive at all.

Lots of work for little reward. Too much internal politics and slow moving to get anything done. Good for progression if you are willing to essentially do 2 jobs to get it

Supply Assistant (Current Employee) –  Nottingham, Nottinghamshire31 October 2017
Work is very good at Boots, your days are flexible and you choose how you want to go about completeing your tasks. I learned a lot about Suppply in general and best practices for differnet situations. The management here are much like ,management anywhere you go, there are really good managers and not so great managers. The job can be quite demanding in respect that you will have a lot to do in a short amount of time and staying over your hours is almost expected which is a downside to Boots. the most enjoyable part of the job is the people i work with.
Pros
Boots discount, offer health insurance and such benefits. relaxed environment
Cons
usually expected to do more hours than paid for

Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) –  Nottingham, Nottinghamshire7 October 2017
A typical day at the boots warehouse is very repetitive, i learned how to pick and pack and follow simple instructions to make sure the orders were all ok. we have a meeting at the beginning of every shift and at the end of every shift with the management to tell us what the total order are and then they thank us at the end of the shift. the hardest part of the job is to make sure you don't get the orders wrong in any way. the most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people and having a laugh at work as well as working.

ABAP Developer (Former Employee) –  Nottingham3 October 2017

The culture at boots is the best thing about it, there are plenty of opportunities to raise money for charity!
Pros
flexible working, sales, great culture
Cons
stressful working conditions

Great for starting your career
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Nottingham20 September 2017
For kick starting your career it is a large organisation with numerous opportunities. You learn a lot about the industry and can be exposed to a lot of experience.

The performance management system could be improved.

Some management are very good, but some people in managerial positions should not be.

Company culture was good overall, but did vary between departments.

Company changes are not managed well - need to better manage resource demand in the future.

Hard to get up the ladder/salary increases as subjective to company performance and hierarchy. Less focused on individual targets and achievements - no managerial influence on this.
Pros
discount
Cons
under resourced
