    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

    Pros

    They pay you and they have AC.

    Cons

    Required to work Christmas eve or Christmas day, yet they cut out Christmas gift cards out 5 years ago. They give you a 25% off day instead. Hours are not friendly, and there is no benefit for job loyalty. ALL benefits have gotten worse with each passing year. They have cut hours requiring you to do more work with less help in the pharmacy, to save money. Yet just spend 6.7 BILLION dollars buying an overseas company. When i was hired with this company it was one of the best company's to work for. Its a far cry from that now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of those who put money in your pocket!
