Former Employee - Customer Assistant

I worked at Homebase Limited part-time for more than a year

Pros

Friendly management, feels amazing to work in such positive atmosphere.

Cons

Basic pay rate might be the only con i can think of, other than that i loved it!

"Boots"11 May 2021

Current Employee - Customer Advisor

I have been working at Boots part-time

Pros

All colleagues are supportive and lovely. If you are eligible you can get the boots employee discount card which is amazing!

Cons

Long working hours.. But except that I dont find any cons yet. I think it is difficult to find the vacancy as people work for a long time here?
