We all need to get by

Head Photo Specialist (Current Employee) Kennesaw, GA

Pros-The family style environment (Your coworkers are like brothers and sisters, minus the management/ depending on what store you are in)
-Flex hours
-Freedom to get things done how you like as long as they are done
-great 401k (too long to get vested though..6 years)

Cons-LOW LOW LOOOOOOW pay
-No advancement unless you are in good with the store manager and or want to become management, shift lead, or certified drug dealer (Pharmacist)

Advice to Senior Management-Please pay your people. You talk about being and living well, but after almost 8 years with you I am only making 9.25 and hour and that is WITH a college degree. After taxes, medical, and 401k I take home 500 every 2 weeks WHAT?!

-Not everyone wants to be in management and or be a pharmacist . Have a better sophisticated system in which employees can explore their talents and be used to further the mission of Walgreens OTHER than being a manager or pharmacist.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

When the pharmacy doesn't do well one… Advice to Senior Management: Acknowlege your employees for exceptional behavior. Pay overtime when needed No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
