    Former Employee - Certified Executive Assistant Manager in Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Certified Executive Assistant Manager in Houston, TX

    I worked at Walgreens full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Learned everything there is to know about retail operations and additional skills like permit compliance, governance and other skills that would benefit someone opening their own business. Great place to learn and expand into other disciplines such as getting registered with the Texas State Board of Pharmacy as a technician.

    Cons

    Once your at this level politics plays a big role which results in gossip from one manager to another. It's so bad in fact, that I thought I was surrounded by people with the mentality of high school children. Every day is the day you will be promoted to run your own store and the next thing you realize is your hair is starting to turn grey.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to what got you to a management level and continue to ask questions and learn. There is always some aspect of the business you don't know and should. Keep to yourself, don't get caught up in the gossip but make your self relevant other wise you will get passed over for promotion.
