I enjoyed working at Boots, i learnt many things, such as how handle cash and card payments on the tills and taking stock. It was a challenge at times especially when the store was busy, but that was what made it more enjoyable. The most enjoyable part of the job was definitely providing exemplary customer assistant and putting a smile on customers' faces.
Customer Assistant (Former Employee) – Bristol – 19 May 2018
Lots of friendly staff, easy to work on tills, typical work day would be either on tills or tidying / putting out stock on shop floor. Pay was good for my age. However, management seemed unprofessional.

I could be serving people on the till, or pharmacy counter. I often make up prescriptions, order stock put stock away on shelves. I also manage the sale plan on the shop floor put away shop retail delivery. I also work in the care homes room putting together packs of medicine for care homes and people. I have learned that the most important part of pharmacy is the patients, and their safety with their medicines. We have a good workplace culture but the company expects a lot from you. The hardest part of the job can be not getting upset when people shout at you if they are not happy and not to take it personally but to remember they are also just people who are not feeling well. The most enjoyable part is helping someone who really needs it and knowing you have made a difference in their lives.
Staff discount, a staff benefits box, I get a 5 weeks holiday.
Company expect a lot from you for what you get paid, which I think is too low for what you are responsible for in the job.
N°7 Advisor (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 7 May 2018
The company has important organizational problems and they don't have enough staff to fulfill the daily activities. The colleagues at my store are very friendly and helpful, there is a very good work environment.
since i have done work experience at boots i have learnt to be more confident and ambitious. The place is a caring and multicultural loving place to be at. the hardest thing at working in boots would probably be putting out stock because sometimes the products are heavy and may cause back ache. however, the most enjoyable part of working at boots is that you get to gain more confidence by engaging with people and also you get free lunch.
