No opinion of CEO

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 Management

Stop having favorites it's breaking up people.

    I have been working at Walgreens part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have found no "PROS" to working for this company it just keeps getting worse every year and I cannot seem to leave this job

    Cons

    Managerial favoritism Under–qualified managers Salary cuts was told by corporate that they will not hire store level employees to corporate positions will not promote from within laziness uncoordinated operational plans I can keep going...

    Advice to Management

    1) hire people that have some level of business knowledge to manage, neither my store manager nor DM has a college degree. 2) listen to employees that have experience on your front lines, don't just sweep their ideas under the table. 3) treat your employees better if you want them to work "for" you, not just work, employee morale is so low that no one actually cares and just goes through the motions. 4) IF THE STORES HAVE TO BE OPEN ON HOLIDAYS CORPORATE SHOULD BE TOO. 5) once again i can keep going...
