Featured Review

Former Employee - Optometrist

I worked at Specsavers full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great team, atmosphere and management

Cons

Had to make my own tea!

Former Employee - Recruitment Partner

I worked at Boots Opticians full-time for more than a year

Pros

I loved working with such a variety of kind, caring individuals who all work closely and honestly together to achieve success

Cons

Some of the technology is very archaic. It would be great to see WBA implement industry-leading recruitment technology, providing Recruiters the opportunity to develop their skill sets and be part of... the future of pioneering recruitment technology
