It's retail

Store Manager (Former Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

I worked at Walgreens full-time for more than 8 years

ProsSteady hours, always something new to learn, new programs, stores everywhere.

ConsPolitics, not what you know but who. DM favorites, unfairness from corporate and district management. Do 10x more with 10x less, push push push sales. Typical corporation, executives get million dollar raises while hourly workers get .17 raises.

Advice to Senior ManagementDegree is everything. If you have 20 years walgreens experience but no degree they will promote the person off street with a degree in astrology because they can do a great PowerPoint presentation but can't unload 1700 pc truck at 5am.

Treat those at the bottom of the pyramid with more respect rather than like robots, and please, so… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
