Overwhelming at first, but you get the hang of it.

I have been working at Walgreens full-time for less than a year

Pros

-You can do your work without interruptions.
-You can listen to music/whatever while you work.
-Great for introverts/people who don't want to deal with annoying customers.

Cons

-Without previous pharmacy experience, your error rate will be high.
-You're chained to your desk and can't get up and stretch without penalty on your Handle Time.
-Can be stressful. Constant go-go-go rushed attitude.

    I worked at Walgreens full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most efficient workflow in retail pharmacy when adequately staffed; endorsing many key pharmacist initiatives in MTM, screening for disease, and consultations. Training time given and most staff trained & competent with customer focus.

    Cons

    High investor-driven philosophy leading to short-term budgetary decisions that caused layoffs & lost or inconvenienced Rx customers (i.e. loss of Express Scripts in Jan 2012 only to have it back in Sept).
    Decisions not targeted to specific markets. Possible favoritism in store assignments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New initiatives were secondary to maintaining & increasing the patient base in competitive markets as in Ohio. While a difficult decision, too many were adversely affected by layoffs for what was less than a year of a suspended insurance contract.
