Boots – Why Work For Us?


Worker Privacy Policy

Privacy at Boots

As a Boots Worker , you already know the importance of protecting our customers’ privacy and personal information, but our responsibility doesn’t end there; it extends to your personal information too.

From your very first day as a Boots Worker to your last, and even after you’ve left, we use information about you to help us manage your employment and run our business. Without your personal information Boots couldn’t fulfil its duties as an employer so we can’t always give you the same choice we give our customers about their information. That makes it all the more important for us to give you confidence that your information is in safe hands and set clear expectations about privacy in the workplace.

This policy tells you the type of information we hold, how we use it and how that might affect your privacy.

Our Promise to You

We make the same promise to our Workers that we make to our customers: “Boots is committed to protecting your privacy. We believe in using your personal information to make things simpler and better for our Workers and our customers. We will always keep your personal information safe and will never sell it to third parties. We’ll be clear and open with you about why we collect your personal information and how we use it. Where you have choices, we’ll explain them to you and respect your wishes.”

Who’s in control of your information?

Throughout this Policy, ‘we’ or ‘Boots’ means companies within the Walgreens Boots Alliance group, including subsidiaries, affiliates, joint ventures and franchises, and we may share your personal information between those companies both within and outside Europe, for the purposes described in this policy.

Whenever and however we use your information, we keep in mind that first and foremost it is your personal information, and we aim to minimise any impact on your privacy. We only share your information where we genuinely need to do so and with appropriate protections in place, and we will never use it for marketing without your consent

A role within our Supply Chain can be truly rewarding. You'll be part of an operation that not only gets products on to our shelves in store but also services some vulnerable members of the community. 

Portia loves that she can make a real difference in her role in Supply Chain, especially when it combines her passion for the environment.

We asked Neeta why she's loved working in an airport store for 25 years.

Hands up if your team play a huge part in motivating you and helping you achieve your goals.

    No7 Beauty Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bromley, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Boots (Bromley, England) in February 2019.

    Interview

    There was 3 of us being interviewed at the same time but for different stores. The lady who interviewed us was lovely and kept things really simple and a chilled atmosphere. We were asked different questions then shown a mini makeover then had to practise on each other describing products as if we were customers. After about an hour we were taken to shop floor where we had to interact with staff and customers... after a short while we then had to find a customer to have a mini makeover, which will seem daughten at the time but was actually quite easy . After doing makeover we then had to look at no7 stands and find things that could be improved on !
    After about 1 1/2 hours we were taken downstairs to room again and asked questions etc then were told that we had all passed with flying colours which obviously we were all very happy about!
    One main thing is to know about the latest beauty tips... go onto you tube, Instagram and look at beauty magazines... you will be asked who do you follow and what beauty tips have you picked up on !
    Interview was just over 3 hours long but because it's full on time goes very quickly !
