Featured Review

Current Employee - Head Office Worker

I have been working at Holland & Barrett Retail full-time for more than a year

Pros

This company has a great heart, lots of energy, strong values and great people. Love the facilities in the office, including a great gym (which is well used). Sure we have some issues (doesn't... everywhere?), but there is a genuine drive to work to fix them.

Cons

It's tough in retail, and everyone is working very hard to keep the company successful. None more so than our amazing store managers and colleagues. The company needs to get better at recognising... and appreciating how hard everyone is working.

Advice to Management

Getting things right in stores, online, and for our customers is the only thing that really counts. We need happy and focussed people to make that happen. Managers need to focus on helping every... person in the company to work together (and talk to / listen to each other) to achieve that.

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.
