Former Employee - Cabin Crew

I worked at Thomas Cook full-time

Pros

Great when the company was in business

Cons

It went in to liquidation.

Former Employee - Pharmacy Advisor

I worked at Boots part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The discount card was great, especially when there was double staff discount near Christmas (which works on offers). The pay is pretty good too and there are always extra shifts to be picked up if... you're willing, I was even able to help over a few stores because I wanted more shifts.

Cons

sometimes you get a lot of pressure from the managers to meet targets.
