    Pros

    I love my customers, Close to home. Most employees get along like family. Only takes one bad apple to ruin a great environment

    Cons

    not a family friendly company. No flexibility . Bad employees are allowed to stay and intimidate others by running to corporate with lies

    Advice to Management

    be more willing to help good employees rather than punish them. Make all employees follow the rules such as no cell phone usage, reading on the job, ignoring customers

    I have been working at Walgreens full-time

    Pros

    on every corner. will pay for certification.

    Cons

    over worked under paid. company has 16.60 cap on pay as a pharmacy technician. People in management positions are questionable how they got there.

    Advice to Management

    keep your word. learn all tasks of the store, and have the mental stability to work with people. take cap of pay its ridiculous that people have been there 12+ years and can't make more money for their dedication. its bad you can make more at McDonalds.

    Pros

    Decent place to start your pharmacy technician career. They provide a 4 week class to get you ready for the PTCB Exam. Both the classes and the exam is paid for by walgreens.

    Cons

    A lot of work and stress for such little pay. Lots of favoritism as well!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees equally and with respect!

    Pros

    Store managers are usually willing to work around a schedule for another job.

    Cons

    Managers want the most out of every employee. Meaning that they will expect you to go above and beyond what you were hired for and still pay you minimum wage. Shift managers will assign you tasks so that they don't have to do them. Example: cleaning the bathroom
