    Info and Views on Alliance Boots

    What is everyone's take on boots and their company as a whole. Also what are the different levels within the organization. It has come to my attention that there can be a pharmacist, pharmacy manager but also an area pharmacy manager?

    What are the pay rates?

    37K doesn't sound like a huge amount, but I know for a fact they used to operate an extremely attractive bonus and overtime structure. They have a history of keeping remuneration packages to a personal, contractual level. I did know a guy in Ireland 5 years ago who regularly cleared €5K monthly after tax. Times they are a-changin' though!

    You can't really expect more than 37k after pre-reg these days though right?

    The pharmacist i work with at Tescos started on £39k plus overtime and locums. Not bad at 24yrs old at all. My friends brother is a pharmacy manager at boots and makes £45k plus a bonus.

    I know a Boots pharmacist in Ireland who reckons he is on the equivalent of 50k sterling. He's allright as he is in a shopping centre and has recently won a lucrative care home contract. He said the new positions are all having their wages slashed. I wouldn't want to work in some of the old alliance branches near me. Some look like sweatshops for pharmacists but I guess it depends on the exact location as all multiples have problems recruiting in certain areas

    He only does 4 days a week and isn't a manager

    45k for a pharmacy manager seems rather low.

    ye it is quite low but he is only 27 and at the end of the day he is in the top 10% of earners, has a 3 bedroom house, a bmw m3 and two holidays a year. Not much more you can ask for.

    Sounds like he's doing OK! He lacks just one thing in my book..a loving wife who earns more than he does...

    Happy days!
