    I worked at Walgreens part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Where I worked, my coworkers were really great and I really liked two out of my five bosses.
    When I had to go to the hospital after 9 of working there, I was able to get medical coverage and leave even though I hadn't signed up for (and didn't work enough hours to be on) their insurance plan.

    Cons

    In my case, since I was new to the company it was hard to get time off. Even if I gave ample time. One of my bosses would also ask me to finish projects by closing time that he started earlier, but left before it was finished instead of saving the rest of the project for when he came in the next morning.
