    I have been working at Walgreens full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people I work with are great as well as our customers. The only reason I stick around is because of the people that surround me and the fact that this will reflect well on a future resume when I graduate college.

    Cons

    Corporate could care less about the employees or the stores. The only thing they seem to care about is making money for themselves. I work back in the pharmacy. Corporate continues to add more and more work for us to do while continuously cutting our hours. We are doing 220 plus scripts a day plus phone calls to insurance, smart counts, tprs, etc. They only staff us with one pharmacist and one tech. This is incredibly unsafe. We increased are sales over the years 50-60% yet have half as many hours. They change our hours week to week (not just our store but all stores) so its hard to keep employees around if you can't guarantee they will have hours and it also makes scheduling a nightmare. They say they have an open door policy but that isn't true. They may have an open door but will not listen as its been the same thing year after year. The store managers have no control over any of this. I do believe if they would listen to the employees more the company would be greatly benefited. I do love the actual store I work at and our store culture is incredible I just wouldn't recommend getting a job here if you want to advance further or be treated like you matter by corporate. There pay is on the low end as well. If you are looking for an introductory job this would be fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
