    Current Employee - Store Manager  in  Orange, CA
    Current Employee - Store Manager in Orange, CA

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance but getting worse. Was once a great company to work for. Chance to work on your feet.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything other than work life balance is in flux with this company right now. Job security is all but gone. Always worried when the ax will come down. They already cut the bonus and have made it harder to meet any reasonable goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think like a customer.

    Current Employee - Head Photo Specialist in Kennesaw, GA

    I have been working at Walgreens full-time for 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.
