Pros

On-site Walgreens, Health Clinic and Gym.

Cons

Very Expensive Benifits. If your hourly they pay you by the minute! Vacation waiting time is a very long time! Long time to get through IT.

Advice to Management

Make time for your employees! Always too busy to teach and no written procedures so there is no direction.

  1. Cares about their employees, not the most interesting job

    Pros

    At least at the Walgreens I worked at:
    Decent benefits, decent pay (above minimum wage), daily goals and tasks (kept work from being very boring), management was very organized, schedule was always consistent, I got the amount of hours I asked for, management really listened to employee input and addressed problems, got free beauty products to sample for SaturDates, 15% off discount, coworkers were great, customers could be really nice, good career advancement potential if you put in the effort and time

    Cons

    Sometimes the store got very busy, and there are only two or three registers,could be stressful, the pay was still not that high, customers were sometimes rude or doing things like shoplifting/ making a mess, did the same things every week, sometimes got boring or monotonous

  2. Pleasant workplace, typical low paying retail job for those not looking to manage.
