    I worked at Walgreens part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Walgreens is a very good job to start off if you want to gain customer service and real world experience. For students looking for a part-time job, you gain some very good insight on how to manage a department and handle people. In my experience, I learned how to record inventory, create signage, keep track of tasks on a checklist, complete resets and organize overstock. It is physically and mentally demanding work, but it will build your character.

    Cons

    Walgreens prides itself in providing the best quality health solutions and plans for its customers. However I feel this mission can be ineffectively carried out if there is high employee turnover, lack of training for new employees, and store managers who do not carry themselves with a positive attitude. These were the issues I encountered near the end of my employment with the company. I know every store is different and each store is responsible for setting the tone and atmosphere with the goal of striving for "Happy and Healthy." However, in the last year of my employment, the store I worked at went through a major change: an assistance manager who had worked with the company for over 10 years was promoted to executive manager. From that point onward, employees felt sudden changes in policies that eventually caused them to leave the company and seek better opportunities elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In my experience at the store I was formerly working in, the management team constantly stressed the need to meet corporate expectations, rather than customer expectations. Vacation time was also eliminated, no matter how many hours an employee had accrued. Instead, employees were granted days off work only for funeral and hospital reasons with supporting documentation. If an employee refused to comply with this policy, they were immediately removed from the operation for the following week. My advice to management is to consider discussing company values and benefits along with perks that will appeal to employees so that they may not feel threatened or mistreated.
