Featured Review

Current Employee - Boots Customer Assistant

I have been working at Boots part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Relaxed and enjoyable workplace. Everyone is always positive and everyone helps one another, especially if there are complaints/ problems with customers.

Cons

Only Con is dealing with customer complaints, however, that comes with the job so you just need to know how to communicate and deal with people.

Current Employee - Candidate Attraction Executive

I have been working at Pulse (UK) full-time for more than a year

Pros

- Both colleague and managers are great people who are passionate about what they do and are a joy to be around in and out of the office. - Invest in people and help to ensure you're progressing... as a person not only for the business. - Career opportunties to move inside the company to make sure you're role is most suited to your preferences. - Contributing to help the mental health crisis in the UK for adults and children. - Remote working

Cons

Potential for more flexible working hours - example start early + finish early. (Although have never asked it's just not regularly displayed).

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work and continue investing in people who care and rewarding their loyalty.
