Was bullied in this job by management!!!
Customer Assistant (Former Employee) –  Cork , IE13 December 2018
Was bullied in this job by management!!! Huge staff turnover, management absolutely horrible felt sick having to go into work every morning, the head of Boots didn't take actions any further as they would rather lose an assistant over a manager and a terrible one at that. Salary is ok for starting off, uniform is provided for free which is also good although you are worked to the ground, hard to get holidays and I've never felt so belittled and undervalued .
Pros
Free uniform, good salary, good lunch breaks
Cons
Bullies, overworked, shocking management, lack of communication, no sick pay

Worst place to work
Customer Assistant (Former Employee) –  Liffey Valley Centre, County Dublin18 April 2017
The worst management staff I've ever come across. The Store Manager is a mean, horrible woman who looks down her nose at everyone, including customers. The days are long, and the stock is never in. Getting into trouble for empty shelves, when there's no stock to fill them. Never being able to find a manager when you need one because they're up in the office having a grand oul chat.

If you want to work for a company that ignores your hard work, has no chance for promotion, very little training and the worst management staff, then this is the place for you!

dreadful company to work for, but great, hardworking staff and atmosphere.
Customer Assistant (Former Employee) –  Jervis, Dublin City.7 July 2016
the worst company i've ever worked for. great salary, but never paid correctly or on time. disgraceful and disorganised management. documentation was slow, and there was a severe lack of communication between management and staff (i.e, failure to communicate roster changes, etc). great co-workers, very hard working staff and good atmosphere and morale. i thoroughly enjoyed the company of the people i worked with, and the job itself (till staff, floor staff) was also enjoyable. i loved assisting customers and meeting new people. however, the company itself is dreadful to work for and i'd never recommend working here if you want a reliable job and salary, praise for your hard work, organised management and proper documentation.
Pros
hard working staff, great atmosphere, great salary.
Cons
dreadful management and communication
