Pros

From starting my pre reg 4 years ago with Boots Opticians and have now worked in multiple Boots branches as a qualified Optometrist, I can say with confidence Boots Opticians in Bradford by far is the best work place to work. I have had the chance to progress as a supervisor for pre regs Optometrists and currently going to supervise my third pre reg in a months time. The team spirit at Bradford makes it a great working environment where I have made friends for life and always look forward to each working day.  The management in Bradford is what makes this store soo unique and has helped it go from strength to strength. In particular the practice manager Saqib and Assistant manager Bilal also a dispensing Optician have lead the team with such motivation, appreciation and always uplifts the mood of all the staff during the busy days and go out their way to make sure customers have nothing but the best service provided for them. We all are very grateful that they are our managers and I can say with 100% confidence that they have both together been the best managers I have ever had as I have had over 16 managers over my four years at Boots Opticians.

Cons

Not every store is the same with Boots as I had a very though time as a pre reg and the management towards the end of my pre reg at Chester boots store made me contemplate my career with Boots, however the management in Bradford from both Saqib and Bilal helped restore my trust in Boots Opticians and I have not regrets in staying with the company.

The team spirit at Bradford makes it a great working environment where I have made friends for life and always look forward to each working day.

Pros

Great team, great communication between team, decent salary in comparison with competitors, good trust between area manager and my role.

Cons

It systems are too slow and taken too long to update, although they are now updating them. I feel that they could trust the managers to make more in house decisions.

Advice to Management

Trust the managers opinions more.

Pros

The pay is not too bad, free uniform

Cons

Short staffed, lack of communication within management, lack of respect in the workplace

Advice to Management

Hire more staff, check in on your current staff from time to time and listen to what they have to say. Communicate with other managers in store to ensure staff are being given clear messages. Don't tell staff who are sick that they need to come in to work because you are short, it is not acceptable.
