I have been working at Walgreens part-time (more than a year)

Pros

I don't believe there are pros to working at Walgreens, only one that I could think of is we get Promotional money for selling some items. But honestly, that's only for candies and or really expensive makeup and the money amount is never over $5 per item.

Cons

EVERYTHING. They will slave you out for no apparent reason, tell you to do work, and take credit for it. They'll make sure they get more than enough work out of you for that 7.50/ hour. Oh, and they make sure you SELL, SELL, SELL! tf?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop having favorites it's breaking up people.

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

    Pros

    Pay raises every year. It's a job.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is virtually non existant. Not real good at follow through when they ask for input from employees with the yearly survey. Move management whenever, wherever they want with no consideration for their commute, needs and wants. Make EXA's and Store Managers work 5 1/2 days. No time for family life. Benefits use to be great, now not so much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good employee morale makes for better customer service. If you would like for your employees to push the "Be Well" montra you may want to look at the benefits for them. Employees that work on the floor don't make alot of money and some can't afford what you offer. Quality of life for your employees should be at one of the considerations while you are restructuring. Keep in mind we care and want to keep our pay and jobs as much as top management does. When you care-we care...
