Decent internship

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Walgreens

Pros

Pay was decent for an internshit. $14 an hour. I made good money during the summer that was the only good thing.

Cons

Same work day to day. Not very exciting going into work since you are doing the same tasks. Basically an overpaid employee

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give interns more challenging tasks than just stocking shelves

    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Where there used to be nothing but positive things I would say about the company, once the Walgreens family left, there are ZERO pro's to being an employee for this company.

    Cons

    Job always on the line...forced to practice against moral beliefs...all support help cut to bare minimum...customer is last on the list of concerns...benefits have been cut to the bone...management expects you to smile and be happy you have a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the previous work model...make us a proud company again.

    Pros

    NONE! I CAN NOT THINK OF ANYTHING GOOD TO SAY ABOUT WALGREENS!

    Cons

    Micromanagement, expectations of one person doing three peoples jobs, no room for advancement, they're cutting wages and expect you to work twice as hard. They DO NOT care about you or your families. It's about the bottom dollar and how much money the head honchos can make. The health insurance used to good. Now, they cover less and less and charge you more. DO NOT APPLY for a job at this company. As a matter of fact, run fast and furious as far away as you can from them. I used to love my job, now I dread going to work. ;-(

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    WAKE UP! This company has made it this long because they cared about their employees. You are working your employees into the ground and expect them to stay upbeat. Go back to the FOUR-WAY test and OWN IT! You can't keep treating your employees like robots and expect them to stay loyal for long.
