Pros

Slightly above average pay for the industry; good benefits

Cons

Walgreens had a great format that they've almost totally abandoned now. The industry leader in the most important category (sales per store) by a more than 2 to 1 margin has decided to imitate the very companies they were beating!

Advice to Management

Give the autonomy that once belonged to the store managers back to them. Let them control their own inventory. Give them back flex space. We were outselling CVS about 2:1 per store and you make these changes because "No one else does it." Think about that. For a while. Actually, it shouldn't take that long. Say it with me: "Oops!" Now think about ESI and say it again.

    Pros

    -Don't need a college degree

    Cons

    -Low pay. Based on your performance review your "annual raise" will fall between $0.10 - $1.00/hour. Also, no bonus.
    -Almost impossible to move up from EXA to Store Manager unless you are best friends with the district manager.
    -Horrible inconsistent hours, includes night & weekend shifts.
    -Weak & expensive healthcare plan

    Advice to Management

    Take care if your employees. As a store manager, your responsibilities also include acting as HR for your employees.
