      Pure Ignorant

      Pros

      Staff Discount on vitamins and healthcare

      Cons

      The majority of the store management are pure Ignorant, it's as if Boots train their managers to be this way. It comes from the top down. The floor managers are ignorant, the store managers are ignorant, rude and unprofessional and the same for the area and regional managers. They make us wear The Green Ribbon for mental health week, but they certainly do not practice what they preach towards their staff. No compassion, no flexibility, no empathy.
