    I have been looking for jobs at the minute, and someone's told me there's a vacancy at boots. I've been given the reference number but it keeps saying there's nothing!? Just rang my mate and he checked for me and he can see the vacancy?! so why on earth can't i? The reference is BOOTS39491

    If someone can show me a print screen of what the job is, i will give pos rep!

    for the record i've tried ringing said store but they're number's been "busy" for 5 hours now...

    Just searched it and it says ''there are no jobs that matched the criteria". You know above the bit where you enter the ref number there is a local area search option - why not type in your city/postcode and see if any vacancies appear that way?

    Hmm, it is weird. Try looking here under 'shop worker' in your local area (if you haven't already)

    I tried it and it didn't work either, 'no opportunities matched your criteria'. Try searching on the directgov website for jobs, or maybe make an account with boots. If you haven't already, typre in your e-mail address on the boots job section, then you can keep signing in to check for any vacancies.

    The really annoying thins is that It takes about 2 minutes to load each page, then it sends you back to the home page and you've got to do it all again! tosspots

    Boots website is rubbish. I tried to apply for a job their the other day and they said you haven't done the questionnaire. Well I kept trying to complete it but it wouldn't load up and when I clicked it off it says we now presume you want to withdraw your application. So they sent me an email the day after saying you have not done the questionnaire we presume this was a technical fault please go to the link and do it. By the time I had checked my emails that day they had sent me a second email to say I had not been successfull as there had been too many applicants. That's hardly fair when the questionnaire wouldn't load up.
