Congratulations on getting a Boots Interview.
We all know interviews are stressful and competition is intense.
However, with a small amount of preparation, you can ace the interview at Boots Pharmacy.
Here you will learn how to successfully answer Boots Interview Questions.
Boots Interview Questions
1) Tell us about yourself?
- Talk about your hobbies, previous work experience, and education. Keep your explanation brief and to the point.

3) Why do you want to work for Boots?
What you want to do is reread the job description and find skills they are looking for and reassure the interviewer that not only do you have those skills but you are passionate about using them. For example, suppose you are in a Boots Customer Assistant Interview. The job description states
- This is your chance to be part of something a bit different. You’ll be working closely with the most important part of our business – our customers. Giving them fantastic customer care and making them feel good, and we think that’s a great opportunity. (skill required: people skills)
- Listen to our customers, it’s the first step to providing a great experience and we love how passionate our customers are about our brand. (skill required: listening skills)
- Put our customers at ease. You’ll get to know our fantastic products, recommending items that they hadn’t considered. Your really personable approach will keep our customers coming back. (skill required: quick learner)
So if you were on a Customer Assitant Interview say
- I have excellent people skills and will be excited to help customers find what they need.
- I am a good listener which will allow me to help the customer find exactly what they are looking for.
- I am a quick learner and will enjoy learning about the new products at Boots and advising customers about these new products.
4) What is your greatest strength?
- I am a quick learner (this is a great answer because they will have to spend less time training you)
- I work well under pressure (this is a great answer because Boots will be extremely busy during their rush hour and you need to stay focused during this time)
5) What is your greatest weakness?
You will want to answer this question in a way your greatest weakness does not impact your ability to work at Boots. State something like
- I am a workaholic and I neglect my friends and family or
- When I get caught up in my work I don’t take enough personal time for myself.
6) How would you deal with an upset customer?
- I would find out what is wrong with the customer. If it was the product I would offer to replace it (tip be sure to learn Boots return policy)
- If a customer was upset because they could not find a particular product I would find it for by walking them to the location rather than just pointing to a general direction.
7) Where do you see yourself in five years?
- This question is designed to see if you are goal oriented but they will also want to see if you are a good fit at Boots. For example, stating you plan on working in retail management is a better answer than wanting to work in childcare as Boots is not in the business of childcare.
- Tip!!! Have a look at Boots career website and find a position you can see yourself doing in five years.
8) Why should I hire you?
- I work hard, I am a quick learner, and I am punctual.
