        Positive Outlook

        I have been working at Boots part-time for less than a year

        Pros

        Competitive wage compared to other brands in Boots. Not comission based so a good team environment. Management where I'm based made themselves accessible to us which was great. Staff discount and quarterly makeup allowance was a perk!

        Cons

        Sick leave is not great. Only paid if you have three days off in a row, and two absences in a two years brings you in for a meeting. I didn't have that myself, but it was frustrating as bugs would pass round a lot where people didn't want to call in sick Rotas could have been done better so that we all had one weekend off per month as you will be working through the weekend often (and having off days during the week)...
