    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Everything good about Walgreens has either been changed to something that doesn't even resemble what it used to be, or taken away altogether. I like the people I work with, but that has nothing to do with the company.

    Cons

    Growing too big too fast and leaving employees behind. Ridiculous expectations for hourly employees - there simply isn't enough payroll to complete everything that corporate wants done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    invest in your people, you will lose them sooner than you think if this direction continues

    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, annual raises; job security (if you follow all rules); chances for advancement (if you know the right people)

    Cons

    Front cashier is always the most ignored person in the store; promotions and hours are based on favoritism; if you don't speak up, you'll be placed in the same position day after day, week after week, year after year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to who's hired, there are people with Masters and Bachelors degrees that are stuck behind a register while the G.E.D. holders are promoted into management because they hang out with the store manager
