      Pros

      All colleagues are supportive and lovely. If you are eligible you can get the boots employee discount card which is amazing!

      Cons

      Long working hours.. But except that I dont find any cons yet. I think it is difficult to find the vacancy as people work for a long time here?

      Pros

      Fun to work on the No7 and fragrance isles Pay was decent for my first job at 16 got £8.71 ph Had some good chats with other employees

      Cons

      Hours felt like too long had to stand on my feet all day. Would stay overtime to close yet not get paid. Worked so many extra hours yet only was allowed 3 paid sick days. Management was useless when wanting an issue fixed. Some employees were childish an rude which was disgusting. Line manager pretended to be mentally disabled in another shop so that’s the type of people I had to work under.

      Not too bad, one colleague wasn't very nice

      Pros

      Was paid well. I got good hours.

      Cons

      One colleague who I think was the team leader wasn't very nice. While I was serving customers, I heard her saying that she didn't like me in the back (photo department). She was strangely rude, she was also very rude to another colleague who was an older woman. It was like being back in high school.
