Does Boots Opticians offer vision insurance?

Pros

Free glasses and nothing else.

Cons

Never worked with a more shocking-arrogant, petty, selfish, condescending bunch of humans in all my life.

Advice to Management

Employ only woman and homosexual males, as no straight guy would ever survive working for you without losing their mind.

Free glasses and nothing else.

Does Boots Opticians have a pension plan?

Pros

Good pension benefits and other benefits (although some you can only apply for in a two week span in the year) Discount cards obtainable for shopping at other places

Cons

You're absolutely stuffed if you don't have a line manager you don't get on with-I was actually quite lucky with mine-she was willing to bend the rules. Somewhat ridiculous system for booking holidays-18 week notification for time taken off (longer than the notice period to leave the damn company!!!) You feel as though you don't have a voice in the company-middle management just strolls in and acts like the bossy roommate and change the way things operate (often for the worse) without even a by your leave-management visited the branch several times and didn't even acknowledge floor staff-(only once to admonish one of the assistants for not wearing a promotional t shirt....) Lack of communication between call centre booking staff, Poor support from Central resources -we were constantly left without cover on busy days,and then they're trying to place the blame on staff for figures dropping. Just a total shambles

Advice to Management

Take time to listen to your staff and interact with them Look into your system for booking and retaining locums-God knows you need them!!! Don't encourage your line managers to book clinics without guaranteed cover-patients don't take kindly to being let down at the last minute because you couldn't come up with cover.
