    Pros

    Very flexible in getting time off. Providing you give enough notice. Alot of gossip within the company but all companies have that, and the bigger the company the more gossip.

    Cons

    Do not move up past clerk or you get SCREWED. But remember the big guys thought it is a good idea to cap all retail pay now so you won't be able to make to much money here. All assistant managers took a $7000.00 pay cut a few years ago due to no more GUARANTEED overtime. (elimination of benefit) and now they are ELIMINATING Assistant Managers whom for the most part were the back bone of the stores. But they are so kind (DM AND UP) to let us stay on as Shift leads for the same amount of work plus more. You can do this position with ONLY a 30% cut in your pay. WoW what more could you ask for. Now it is the Asst. Mgr. Next elimination of the Store Mgrs. then Pharmacists . The BIG PLAN IS::: Eliminate the store manager and have the EXA run the store; Eliminate the Pharmacists and have the techs run the pharmacy. Few Pharmacists will be in a remote location (not leaked out yet, probably DEERFIELD) checking scripts via monitors How wonderful is that !!! I can't wait till there is a BIG walk out and it finally hits the news. I Don't think the retirement rate will be what it was in the past from this company. Remember - Be well

    Advice to Management

    They should STOP the re modelings and go back to the day when there was appreciation for the employees. What motivation are you giving the employees now??? Lousy little PM's to put in there piggy banks. Come on and STOP being so greedy at Corp. your raises are outrages, but they are thanks to ALL your store employees whom make it ALL possible.

  2. it is okay
