    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Boots full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Staff discount / friendly staff where I work

    Cons

    No progression opportunities apart from assistant manager which is crap money or so I've heard. If you are there 3 years you would already be on same salary with less responsibility. Ten years of service is rewarded with a 40 euro gift card...pathetic.

    Advice to Management

    Dont be so petty over things, sometimes you feel like they sit in their office dreaming up new ways to irritate staff no appreciation shown.
