Customer Advisor in Surrey

good for a first job
friendly colleagues - good sense of team work busy environment with lots of seasonal staff who come and go. management were able accommodate with suitable shift times especially when in school or uni.peak periods such as Christmas are extremely fast-paced and were often stressful as there was not enough staff however, lots of opportunity to do overtime during the rest of the year.

Fun but stressful
It was okay but was not for me I wanted a different career than retail. It’s good for those starting out in the beauty industry though. The pay is okay and so are hours

Terrible.
If your face doesn't fit they won't like you. Management is awful, talk to you like a child. Had to leave early one day due to a family emergency got pulled in the office the next day and was told it can't happen again.

Stressful workplace with no progression, completely understaffed
I worked at the Boots Head Office for 2 years in the call centre as a customer service advisor. There is high turnover rate for a reason, customers are given free reign to absolutely abuse staff. It was common to see colleagues in tears because of the customers.During the pandemic the way customers vital prescriptions were managed was a complete shambles.Management did nothing for the support of the staff's wellbeing. There were not enough staff to cover the ridiculous workload. The company should resolve the issues with the website and order/delivery service so that the call centre wasn't bombarded daily by irritant and cruel customers.Be ready to take a minimum of 60 calls per day and to be an angry customers punching bag. You are as what management called "the front line" basically cannon fodder.Work here if you absolutely have no other choice, but don't stay for long, get back on your feet and find something else immediately.

one of the better retail jobs!
Enjoyed working here but was unfortunately let go when covid first kicked off. Good pay, nice team and thoughtful managers. Shifts were long but always felt worth it afterwards. Open to some flexibility with your shifts and often gave back to their staff for hard work.
