Current Employee - Retail Store Manager in Tulsa, OK
Current Employee - Retail Store Manager in Tulsa, OK

I have been working at Walgreens full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Interact with customers and peers from all walks of life, great opportunity to be a teacher to your employees. Figuring out new ways to drive sales and profit

Cons

Seems to be a huge disconnect between corporate management and field personnel. A lot of micromanaging and no consistency in how district management lead their stores in different parts of the company. Poor work/life balance. They ask A LOT out of store personnel but rarely give the proper tools to succeed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop listening to Wall Street and listen to your customers and employees. Those are the 2 groups of people that will make any business shine or fail. Start by being a leader in the industry like we use to be instead of following the status quo

    I just love my job.

    Cons

    Lack of communication and need to have a meeting atleast twice a month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manager should talk to all employees and tell them what's going on to the company. Communication needs to improve.

    I worked at Walgreens full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Upper Management treated you with respect, by taking my concerns and comments to heart.
    Great health insurance coverage.

    Cons

    Lots of hours. (Worked many of the few Holidays that are left today.)
    Dealing with customers that are aggravated because they are sick was not fun.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep asking the Asst. Managers thoughts on how to improve business.
