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

    Pros

    An ideal student job as there are numerous hours available to fit around university. You’re someone who’ll be exposed to working on many different areas of the shop. You’ll be part of delivery, customer service, dealing with customer queries and complaints. Depending on the size of the store, your duties will work around that. You will often work in different departments (within the bigger stores) and learn communication skills. Some of the team were epic. You get a discount card.

    Cons

    In some stores there is “cliquey” culture unfortunately. However, overall it’s pleasant as long as you associate with people who make you happy at work.
