    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.
