    I have been working at Walgreens

    Pros

    The benefits are awesome, including the benefit for a hassle free transfer to any store in the country that has a position open. The profit sharing package, for the last 3 years, for every dollar you put in, Walgreens has matched it with a $3 deposit. Fully vested after 6 years. Open Door Policy, you can go to any manager at any time for any issue. Despite what other disgruntled employees tell you, there is promotion potential for hard working, driven, and positive employees. 6 paid sick days a year (full time only). Flexibility with scheduling, generally management is willing to work with you on various things, 2nd job, babysitters, ect...

    Cons

    Well, unless you are management, the hourly starting wages are kind of on the low side. Lots of manual labor, even for management at the store level. Stressful dealings with customers. Sometimes ad items are out of stock or ring at the wrong price, sometimes making customers angry. We are open 365 days a year, so someone gets stuck working all of the holidays. In most of the stores, you cannot take vacation in November and December. January thru April are a slow time for retail, some hours may get cut. Sometimes you may be expected to do more work than you can physically handle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is usually good. But there should be more interactive communication between Corporate and the stores. Sometimes things change overnight, and it creates more work for us. Sure, we will get used to it, but having alot of stores give feedback on a change might be better than only using a few test stores.
