Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Norwich20 June 2018
High in responsibility, demanding - lots of extra work. A pharmacy environment requires you to dig deep - to find that energy and find a way. Great if you're a workaholic.

great place to work, absolutely loved working here. really upbeat and friendly. amazing benefits. only downside is working for a massive corporation that is somewhat unethical- no more than the others though

Boots Customer Assistant (Former Employee) –  London17 June 2018
As a previous work experience i had with boots uk, i can say that the job though me a lot, I learnt so many things, for example how to talk to customers and how to help them, how to work with people, and how to ask for help when needed. Initially I had to work on timing, because they need the work to be done fast. But as for that all was perfect.
Pros
Duration of lunch
Cons
Long hours

Customer Service Assistant (Current Employee) –  Wiltshire12 June 2018
Easy place to work with decent work benefits and good hourly pay.
Little to no room to work extra hours.
Management consistently unorganised and unreliable. Have gone without payment for extra duty worked and must force management to record hours. Poor communication with staff.
Pros
Decent wage and holiday
Cons
Unorganised

Store Manager and pharmacist (Former Employee) –  Streatham27 May 2018
Salary is competitive but it is slightly detached from pharmacy role. You become more a shop keeper. There is flexibility to work around the country and career progression is good providing you are ruthless and target motivated.
