    Former Employee - Head Photo Specialist in Dallas, TX

    I worked at Walgreens full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great retirement plans and stock options. Floor teams/workers are decent.

    Cons

    Constant cutting of work hours; constanct change of management and policy; company is currently "demoting" managers to a new/different "management" position with less pay; price of goods going up because they stopped accepting various major prescription plans; poor upper management; virtually no advancement opportunity--you're basically stuck at your position; favoritism by store manager

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees, instead of constantly changing policy, having a hire-and-fire mentality, and close down on holidays

    Current Employee - Assistant Manager (MGT) in Orlando, FL
    Current Employee - Assistant Manager (MGT) in Orlando, FL

    I have been working at Walgreens full-time

    Pros

    Pay is very competitive, benefits are ok, job security if you perform well.

    Cons

    Not enough help, cost cutting is too rapid which is contributing to low morale and increased complaints from customers about poor service. Also, opportunities to move up out of service clerk positions are harder to come by now, and even if you make it to the Shift Lead position, you will be used and abused, and have little chance of moving up past that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what is going on in each individual store, instead of assuming every store in a particular "region" is the same. Do more frequent anonymous surveys to get a feel for employee morale and how you could increase it.
