    Pros

    My store is right across the street from my home, so I can take my time to come there and not worry about being late. Everyone is super friendly and kind at my store. Work environment is cozy and not too big. My store is 24 hours so it's convent to get last minute items, especially with discount. Managers are cool and understanding. Overnight pays an extra dollar.

    Cons

    As I've said before, because I live in the area, they constantly ask me to come in. When I'm in school and have a life to live. Some hours given were unreasonable before. A certain manager, before she left stressed me out to the point where my hair thinned significantly. Overnight/truck nights can be easy or difficult. Having to deal with customers while unloading can be a bit of a hassle. The downside to overnight here. No security guard either.

    Advice to Management

    Get more security. More staff for overnights. Be more reasonable when scheduling your employees.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Duane Reade (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was very simple, I applied online, and interviewed with a store manager within 2 days of applying. Then I was hired 3 days later. Process was only 5 days. Duane Reade is really desperate and would hire anyone. Probably even a monkey if can train to work. lol

Duane Reade -- the Big Apple of drugstores -- has been swallowed by a big fish: Walgreen. Named after the two streets where its first store was located, Duane Reade is the region's market leader with more than 150 stores (more than twice that of its nearest competitor) in densely-populated Manhattan. New York City's other boroughs and the surrounding New York and New Jersey suburbs account for another 100 or so. The stores sell prescription drugs, but more than 50% of the chain's sales come from items such as over-the-counter medications, food and beverages, and health and... More
