Current Employee - Photo Specialist in Colorado Springs, CO

I have been working at Walgreens full-time (less than an year)

Pros

in my store the manager is awesome
easy job

Cons

typical retail schedule types.
very low compensation, they'll cut hours for no reason so they can blow it on sponsoring everything instead of looking out for employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

care more about the little guys again.. your customer's are very important but so are your employees.

Doesn't Recommend

Disapproves of CEO

    Current Employee - Head Photo Specialist in Kennesaw, GA

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    -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.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay for techs, the pharmacy staff is usually fun to be around.

    Cons

    Every few months they come out with these cheesy slogans they want us to say to every customer. When the pharmacy doesn't do well one week we get bashed for it, But when we exceed goal for a week we get no praise or no acknowlegment. Hours get cut randomly throught-out the year. We are alwasy short staffed because this is a company that would rather see their employess run around crazy then pay overtime so we can get some help when we're short.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowlege your employees for exceptional behavior. Pay overtime when needed
