Current Employee - Pharmacy Technician in Houston, TX

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

Pros

work in A/c
holiday pay
vacation pay
special holiday pay
stock/options They used to give out free options but its been a while 10% discount on stock.
decent medical insurance for like 100 bucks a month

Cons

Depends on who manages the store and the pharmacy if you have a good experience.
I happen to have 2 great ones so my experience is good.other might not be lucky.
Customers can be overwhelming some times. and the company cuts hours alot lately i assume to help boost their stock (which used to be high then dropped the last couple years and is recovering)

    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...
