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

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 Management

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 worked at Walgreens full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy Mindless Work. Exactly what you would expect working for a large chain general store.

    Cons

    Paid Minimum Wage. Do as you're told, your opinion does not matter. Unloading the weekly trucks was difficult due to location of store.

    Advice to Management

    At least act like your employee's opinion matters.
