    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop recruiting out of College and start out of HIGH SCHOOL. This will make someone WANT to continue their education instead of feeling like they are stuck in a DEAD END JOB with a Bachelor's degree.

    I worked at Walgreens part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    15% discount on most items, 20% on the Walgreens brand.
    Training in management and pharmacy.

    Cons

    Small stores are like small towns, everyone knows almost all the gossip. Most employees are young high school age working around minimum wage.
    Halloween is the worst holiday time to work. Kids destroy the aisles!
    I became angry at snow storms because that means we have to mop the entire store throughout the day and one last time at the end of the night to keep all dirt tracks off the floor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't get involved in high school drama.
