    Current Employee - Certified Photo Specialist in Champlin, MN

    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very nice people at my location.
    Flexibility in scheduling; able to get the days off requested.
    Friendly customers who are actually appreciative of the help you give them.

    Cons

    Management unstability.
    Promotion opportunities uncertain due to management restructuring.
    Pay could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to promote from within. There are good, no, great people who leave in frustration because they are being overlooked for someone outside of the store who may not know as much as they do. If anything good comes out of the management restructuring I hope that at least the good managers are kept and that there is some room for advancement for regular employees like myself.

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

    Pros

    Had been a stable environment

    Cons

    "Rewiring" mostly hurt who you would expect - Front Line Supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think they would read this.

    Walgreen's participates in too much of a "groupthink" environment. The mindsets of those in management or trying to move up the ladder. No new ideas or better outcomes come from this. Generally, the new person is the same as the last.
