customer advisor in Oxford, Oxfordshire
on 23 September 2021
It was great at the beginningStressed all the time, not enough staff, too much work, they cut down on people and now people can't keep up with the work load, management don't really care, people are not treated equally at all, you ask for one thing, you will get another, rota is all over the place gets changed everyday so you can't really make any plans. People don't feel happy there but nobody really say it

Awful ManagementMy title says it all, awful bullying management who have been over promoted. My colleagues were fantastic though, and supportive. The application process is a nightmare.
Pharmacy Advisor in Southampton, Hampshire
on 12 October 2021
Worst work experienceNo time to study time for the NVQ to train in the pharmacy. My hours of study time wasn’t given back to me. I was scared to go in every single day as the manager would pick on me and the pharmacists would gang up on me. The staff that had been there the longest would moan about each other. Then get others to join in. The managers and Pharmacists are appalling they all work together to “cover” it up. Boots is known for being such a toxic environment to work for. I raised many complaints and didn’t get the outcome I deserved. I felt like I was forced to leave which was such a shame because I loved dispensing but now I’m too scared to ever dispense again. Complete waste of my time.

good job role not great management or counter colleaguesI was a BBS at boots and originally wanted to reduce my hours after uni started, which they said was possible as they said they were flexible, until a few weeks after I started there and was unable to change my hours I was told its either full time hours, or nothing. I've still tried to commit to their needs and been flexible totem instead of them to me. counter staff are not all friendly they love to gossip and tell the manager their negative opinions of us yet they have never had a conversation with us mainly me and give off the impression they don't want to either. not the job I expected it to be as a beauty specialist however my job role I did love as it was all to do with what I love which is beauty and skincare just a shame poor management has gotten to this stage. many people have left and are leaving. just a shame I didn't hand may notice in weeks ago! older workers love to look down on you for being new and will pick out things even if you do your job properly.
Beauty Specialist in London East, Greater London

Worst place to work atDo not work there. The management is poor and disorganised, they lack people skills and compassion, and they don't care about you or your needs in the least and show favouritism to those who have been there for a long time.Every Saturday, the managers also release the rota for the following week, making it difficult to make plans outside of work or even have a life. Sometimes you find out you're working the next day with less than 24 hours notice, but the line manager refuses to allow flexibility or change the rota if we can't work that day. They expect us to have no life outside of boots, and while they emphasise their flexibility, it is a lie; you are only flexible for their needs, but they are not flexible for yours. Not to mention, the people who have been there a long time are malicious and entitled, and they believe they can talk to you anyway because they know the managers will never get them in trouble. With all of the cliquiness, gossiping and drama, it truly feels like you're back in school. Also, as a beauty specialist, you are expected to do everything in the store. If another department is understaffed, they expect you to go there and help out, which makes meeting sales targets more difficult. The counter managers and employees almost never do anything but boss you around.
