    I worked at Boots for less than a year

    Pros

    Not that much - I got paid sort of.

    Cons

    Ok. So first off I have never been to an establishment where I've had to deal with the excrement of fellow workers being in a hand wash sink. The facilities are appallingly dirty. You are treated like an absolute slave without any credit for hard work. Other pickers did very little work and it wasn't challenged. Terrible pay long hours
