Used to be a wonderful place to work but continuous organisational restructures has led to lots of good people leaving and has been very disruptive and not great for culture.
Absolutely no support from senior staff. Customers are rude as the way the store works is not satisfactory, low pay, long hours and not once did I get a thank you for my work!!
Most of the staff was lovely but due to the environment being understaffed and fast paced. It was hard to understand and or grip the knowledge. I was being 'taught' . I got in trouble often for not learning quick enough although most of the staff have never gripped most of the knowledge to do with stock. I do not recommend learning the ins and outs of pharmacy within a understaffed and small one. It will quickly turn into a massively impossible load.
You will never have the same day twice. There isn’t a boring moment and all the staff are so friendly and willing to help you whenever you need. i felt welcome and safe working here and no one judges you for being yourself. There is people of all ages working there which makes it even more welcoming.
In my 10 years of retail, I have never experienced such bad place of work terrible training terrible management no support no respect given if your slow learner they will force kick you out please do not waste your time

I was asked my date of birth at the end of the interview. I’d just turned 40. Then never heard from them again.
