Was once a good place to start your career but not since they've started restructuring their management.

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

Pros

The job itself has been satisfying, friendly staff generally.

Cons

Management restructuring and lower pay for the same work has ruined what was once a good place to start your career.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have to give respect in order to earn respect. If you don'r respect your management, then you can bet the quality of work you get in return will reflect that.

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

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, Cashier>Photo>Head Photo in 1 Year. 7.25>9.50 in 1 year. Decent Vacation allotment. Decent Insurance.

    Cons

    Boring. Lots of trickle down corporate intervention. High Turnover. Lazy coworkers tend to get hired because you start at minimum wage. Hard to care about the job when you make that pay rate. Rarely is there something that doesn't need to be done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allot enough hours to get the job done.

    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. If you land a good store, you'll find a lot of people with good attitudes and it makes it easier to work through the cons of the job.

    Cons

    Increasingly more production per employee. Hours and jobs are getting cut everywhere they can, which will noticeably irritate customers. It used to be so much better, but the new Board of Directors have driven everything in the ground for the sake of Wall Street's circlejerk.
