    Benefits package was actually really great. I've heard it's not as good as it once was. During my time with Walgreens I received sick, vacation and holiday pay. I was enrolled in a 401k as well as profit sharing and was really surprised how much was contributed by the company when I left and actually saw the amount that was saved.

    PTO is not equal to previous sick, vacation times allotments. Medical benefits cost as decreased but deductibles and copays have not.

    insurance is going up and up. They do contribute to it. They do match profit sharing. employee discount is real nice. also get to use the balance rewards card save points then get to spend them and get things for free.

    Comprehensive insurance packages with many options, 401K with company matching and investment options, fair vacation allowance. However, pharmacists must place vacation requests in December each year for the entire next year. Last minute time off is not at all flexible. Must work many holidays.

    Current Store Shift Lead in Fort Worth, Texas

    Holiday hours we used to close early but now corporate has changed stores to stay open normal business hours. Horrible idea espically for low volume store just a waste of payroll.
    Expectations and are getting too excessive and high for employees if the pay was raised maybe it'll be worth it. Don't have the hours available to give employees the chance to fulfill their obligations and required tasks.

    Have the equipment and materials to fully train employees.
    25% discount on walgreens products
    benefits available to part timers and full timers.
    Flexible scheduling

    PTO accumulation changed in the last few years so unless you had time banked new PTO accumulates slowly. Current employees had to change the way vacation is requested and taken to ensure they would be paid for their time off. Also sick and vacation come out of the same PTO accumulation.

    There are discounts on everything that you purchase, including many prescriptions.

    Current Certified Pharmacy Technician in Chandler, Arizona

    I think the benefits package is really good, especially considering that I see about a hundred other peoples insurance coverage everyday. I pay $5 for prescriptions for 30 day supplies and $12.50 for 90 day supplies. I have a $1,500 dollar deductible that I could do without, but everything is covered afterward.
