    Hi,
    I am considering applying for a job at boots,(on the make-up counter)
    Just wondered if anyone has worked there and could tell me what its like?
    I have no sales experience, would that matter much?
    Thanks

    hey there trust me sales experience doesn't matter as long has you got customer service experience you should be fine! just be yourself show a positive attitude, smile, and show that your committed to the company. I have worked in boots before and just had a friendly approach during the interview which got me a job has a xmas temp! Good luck! x

    I've been working at boots for the past 2 years now, not on a make up counter but as a sales assistant, and I like it! Sometimes if you're put on the tills during a quiet time it can be really boring but you'll get that in any job. You get to know your regular customers really well which is an aspect I really like, and regarding the interview I went in straight after my gcse's having never had a job before so I had no previous experience and got the job, so unless that's changed recently I don't think it's a requirement! Just be yourself in the interview, and smile a lot! Good luck

    Is it easy to get a transfer to another store in boots? Do you have to go through a new application online then interview thing even though you work there or can I just call up a manager at a different store to say I would like a transfer?
