    Pros

    The environment can be very upbeat and exciting. There is generally never a dull moment and you are constantly moving. Having the opportunity to interact with customers face-to-face of a daily basis was also fun. On the job you also learn a lot about the latest products which was fun. Hours at the location I worked at were also very flexible and the managers were generally pretty understanding if you were not available to work a certain shift.

    Cons

    Some managers that I dealt with during my time working there seemed out of touch with their employees. I often encountered management that sat in the back room and did nothing while the rest of the employees were out doing work on the sales floor.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the needs of employees and work towards establishing relationships with them.

  2. My time at Walgreen's was a fun and exciting learning experience

    Pros

    Walgreen's is a great company to work for. They have great benefits and a lot of opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Walgreen's is a very large company, which makes it very difficult to follow every expectation. With different clientele and employees, it's hard to apply every rule to each location.

    Advice to Management

    With the recent changes at Walgreen's, it's hard to give advice. It seems that the transitions, while a bit hard on the employees, are working in their benefit.
