I worked at Walgreens full-time for more than a year

Pros

The pay and benefits were quite nice, especially in the area where I live. The hours were reasonable and the fluctuation between working days and nights allowed me to still be able to get things done during the normal 8-5 business hours during the week.

Cons

Because stores are open 365 days a year, there is the possibility of working on major holidays, such as Christmas. However, the holiday pay did slightly ease the sting. The frequent rotation of managers between different stores in the district also became frustrating, especially if you lived on one end of the district.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look more inside the stores for promotions into management. There was excellent potential in the employees, many of whom often felt overlooked when a manager was hired in from the outside.

    Pros

    Great people, nice coworkers, never working the same job for two days in a row.

    Management can be biased - I've never worked somewhere before with such flagrant biases between management and certain members of staff.
