Outward a great company to its customers and patients; inward, a terrible company to its employees.

Current Employee - Store Manager

I have been working at Walgreens full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Decent career track, excellent training for employees, commitment to community, values diversity

Cons

Career track of late can be confusing, especially for Front End management. Limited (if an) job security for Assistant Managers, and an unclear future for Store Managers. Rewiring the company's roles in order to save a few bucks on payroll. Good luck trying to have a family and also balance with work, especially during the holidays. Managers are required to work from Halloween through New Years without any holiday leave or vacation, except for the main holidays themselves, and are required to work 6 days per week during that period.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide transparency to your Managers. It won't spark or incite a riot or mass exodus if you will give them enough time to prepare for any future layoffs.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are very nice and the discount is satisfactory.

    Cons

    Unpaid, unprofessional management, unrealistic expectations, you can do nothing right while working for this company. This company will never give you positive reinforcement it's only about all the bad things you seem to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your workers like they are people not some grunts who can do no right.
