Current Employee - Shift Lead in Mayfield, KY

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

Pros

They seem to hire the best they can find, and their training is extensive and second to none I've seen.

Cons

The hours can be bad if you don't do swing shifts well, but

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more money to update the training, it's good but dated.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Walgreens full-time (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.

    Current Employee - Shift Lead in Cleveland, OH

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

    Pros

    guaranteed 40 hours per week.... a good opportunity if you want to move up in the company or become a manager with a better company.... this position will look really good on your resume.

    Cons

    you have to wait a year for benefits, and vacation.... your sick days start after six months. Alot of information to learn in such a small amount of time but not paid enough. You do the same job as the assistant managers and get paid way less. Your abilities are limited such as you can't look up customer info etc.
