Overall reviews at Alliance Healthcare

Pharmacy Manager | South East | 19 Jul 2020
Lack of communication
No consultation for major area change. Manager very difficult to get hold of. Problem solving non existent unless it's business, personal issues ignored. Blame culture in my team.
ProsGood salary and pension. Boots Discount card
ConsCan't have car allowance. Company car only. Long working day. No overtime payments.
Customer Service Representative | South Normanton | 4 Dec 2019
Do not work for alliance healthcare
Its awful! Its stressful! Its terrible pay! Its non-stop. The business is falling apart and they are doing nothing about it! The customers are rude and arrogant! They just shout and scream and are just plain LAZY. They can do half the stuff they call for themselves but make us do it, then complain we do it wrong! The customers are also so stubborn!! They still use FAX! Myself and my colleagues have been complaining about the outdated systems we use, the communication between the call centre and warehouses, the non-existent support, the false idea of advancement for years! And they have done nothing! They could easily make a few changes to make the job less stressful but they choose not to! You work your absolute hardest and get nothing, absolutely nothing! I've been there almost 2 years, I've always worked hard and hit my KPI and gone above what I'm supposed to do, and they do not praise you or acknowledge it!
Warehouse Worker | South Normanton | 6 Jul 2017
good while it lasted
work was varied and fast paced, overtime was voluntary and was in accordance with workload. management were aproachable, good holidays and benefits. use of pumptrucks and metal cages to move work around, picking and packing orders offline using paper picklists. wrapping pallets and putting stock away, picking on an automated line using scanners.
Prosmon to fri, canteen on site, union on site, paid sick
Conssome late shifts depending on your role, not much one on one training
Administrative Clerk | Chessington | 13 Nov 2014
Productive and Fun
I worked on all different departments and learnt aspects of the running day at Alliance Healthcare, I learnt that colleagues were passionate in making sure customers were happy and satisfied, making sure products were picked and packed the right way first time round. My Job role I would work on my own and closely to managers, would collect my work from Transport department then record any signatures that had not been signed on a proof of delivery document for all delivery van routes, once this was done they would be filed in correct alphabetical order in their corresponding van routes making it easy and accessible, I would then photocopy all records and take to customer service manager, transport manager and operational manager. I would also track any documents that were needed for claims, help in customer service with crediting, calling customers to inform them of any new events, products, deliveries or cancellations.
Proscolleagues friendly
Consnot enough hours
Forklift Operator | Exeter | 13 Feb 2020
Save your mental health
Management allow bullying and bigotry. Do not follow thru on agreed recommendations or staff ideas. Management employ a lot of relatives. Agency staff are treated better than actual staff. Management protect each other from any type of complaint by staff.
Forklift Operator | Nottingham | 2 Sep 2014
I have been working for Alliance Healthcare/Boots as a Team member for 12 Years and feel as though I am now ready for a new challenge and career change. I believe that I have the necessary skills and determination to develop successfully within a new role. I am a motivated individual who is keen to learn new skills and develop both personally and professionally. I currently work as part of a large team and it is therefore vital that I am able to communicate effectively. As part of a team it is also essential that i am able to motivate my colleagues to ensure that productivity and quality levels are reached to the necessary requirements. However even though I work well in a team, I also work well on my own, and enjoy using my own initiative and making decisions independently.
Pharmaceutical Sales Representative | Chessington | 5 Feb 2021
Decent Money, Expect Almost Too Much?
It’s not a bad place to work, the money’s decent and the commission can be very good too. That is if you hit your target, which can be hard. No matter how hard you try and persuade and give great deals to the pharmacies they simply do not and will not purchase from you, including pharmacies that do not want to be contacted. They make you feel you are not doing your best even when you are trying so very hard.
ProsPay, Commission, Breaks
Transport Driver | Preston | 3 Jul 2019
Good place to work but management experience is 0
Unfortunately this place is run by unprofessional management and they've complicated the jobs for the employees. Because of the way they treat people and the way they act,nobody is interested of doing anything. If you know how to buy coffee and bring gifts and food to management you will be offered overtime and you will not have to do anything. Plus only the relatives get promoted and appreciated.
ProsNo benefits
ConsHard work
Inventory Associate | Hinckley | 28 Jan 2020
my years at the company
good team of people to work with happy to help, pay is low for what is expected of you, some management are happy to help so not so much. most things they will support you on
Back End Developer | Nottingham | 13 Dec 2019
It was a fast paced environment that involved meeting daily demands within a specific time frame. Customer orders from medication and everyday household products are scanned and processed daily. I worked in both despatch and scanning as the job required a good amount of flexibility. I learned to work in a team and get along with people from different cultures. The hardest part of the job was going to work unsure of what the daily demand for the day will be, but was always ready for the challenge.
Prosweekly salary
Conslong hours of standing

Questions and answers about Alliance Healthcare

If you were to leave Alliance Healthcare, what would be the reason?
Asked 19 Mar 2017
It’s really went downhill, I understand I’m lucky to be in employment but if I was younger I would walk as their work ethic and management is truly horrible
Answered 25 Jul 2020
The company make a big splash about "employee engagement" and "Investors in People" but it's a joke - as soon as they want to cut costs, or your face doesn't fit anymore, you are either treated badly until you leave it made redundant. This is among the so-called professional staff at Head Office. Most of the Service Centres are even worse.
Answered 9 Jul 2020
What is the work environment and culture like.
Asked 21 Mar 2017
Management are spineless cowards, they act like children in a schoolyard
Answered 25 Jul 2020
Horrible imbeciles with as much management skills as a house brick, a manager should be a leader and someone you aspire to be not someone you dread talking to and would never discuss your personal issues with as it would be spread around the depot within an hour. Stay well clear
Answered 25 Jul 2020
What would you suggest Alliance Healthcare management do to prevent others from leaving?
Asked 19 Mar 2017
Sack HR and get financial services to do an investigation into fraudulent actions from driver team managers reference overtime claims which are never paid. Where does the money go?
Answered 25 Jul 2020
Treat people with respect but nothing will ever change I wonder if any senior management actually read this or just ignore it
Answered 12 May 2020
Why did you leave your job at Alliance Healthcare?
Asked 29 Mar 2017
Nottingham: Because the management team are bullies, there is a lot of favouritism and cliques in the warehouse. Its not what you know but who you know, the people who have an ounce of intelligence are considered a threat and are always put down.
