    Not any 2 days are the same, fast paced and very interesting, excellent routes for progression and very rewarding.

    Cons

    Staff levels always seem to be an issue.

  2. "If you fit in with BOL you will love working here, if you don't then you may not stay for long."

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Boots Opticians full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company discounts are strong. Accommodating with hours if required. Family feeling within the store.

    Cons

    Dated systems. Feels behind the times compared with other high street opticians. If you do not work at fitting in with the company you may feel like an outsider.

    Advice to Management

    Regular feedback with constructive criticism is good to have, this is not done enough. If we had a paperless system the amount of staff required to fill paper records would be free to serve patients. Although there are plans in place to change this they are moving too slowly and we have fallen behind our competitors. The idea of building our own computerised database is good but in my opinion it has not worked and... we should outsource this to an existing provider with a proven system. There is a feel of if you do not think like BOL then you will not progress, no matter how good your ideas are to improve the store or company. There are good people who work here but I have stopped believing in the companies values.
