I have been working at Walgreens part-time (less than an year)

Pros

mostly nice and helpful employees. mostly everyone seems to work hard and put in sincere effort. employees are a good team, except for one assistant manager who doesn't seem to take his work seriously and slows us all down with his unproductivity. fair pay.

Cons

hard work, overwhelming customers. stress dealing with customers. pressure to focus on details with neatness. one of the assistant managers often makes us work overtime after closing because the job isn't done. he also doesn't seem to enjoy his work and seems unproductive during the day. he doesn't seem to want to help the customers. too much pressure to try to sell things.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

communicate and connect better with employees. dont assume things. listen. too much demanding work. manager is too much of a perfectionist

    I worked at Walgreens full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, good hours, good pay

    Cons

    They are too strict when it comes to corporate policy. They do not consider the smaller stores in smaller cities. They need to be more flexible understanding that in smaller stores "defined" job titles aren't the entire picture. Smaller stores people do more than just one job - it is a necessity!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward people for going above and beyond the corporate job descriptions.
