Former Employee - Optical Advisor

I worked at Boots Opticians full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Friendly staff Good pay Training Travel opportunities

Cons

Long hours High expectations Steep learning curve

Current Freelancer - Sales Associate

I have been working at Chimera Recruitment for less than a year

Pros

Flexible work, with decent wage! the perfect job to support careers in the arts and freelance work with opportunities to develop skills and knowledge in fragrance, beauty, retail and other fields!... Super understanding when I need time off even when it’s last minute and always seem to have work when I need shifts, giving me more freedom to focus on my other interests and passions!

Cons

Retail can be really boring when it’s quiet- obviously in no way the agency’s fault, I have no complaints about them

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work
