    Pros

    Company has a lot of perks and you get to know a lot of different people as they shop in the store.

    Cons

    I had a manager that wasn't willing to work with my schedule. They start at minimum wage and are very slow to increase this

    Pros

    Many locations, so you can work close to home. That's all I can think of.

    Cons

    Working conditions at this company has gone even further down hill in the past 2 years, after it had already gone worse the 2 years before that. They’ve cut all the help to bare bones minimum, so you’re basically doing fifteen different things at once and exhausted even at the start of your shift.

    You no longer get raises. They cut overtime as of September……..so you get a flat rate even if you work extra shifts. They have now “restructured” bonuses so pretty much only the pharmacy managers will get bonuses (no staff or overnights RPH bonuses). Benefits have all been dumped onto the Obamacare marketplace…..we will see how that goes, but more than likely YOU will end up paying a larger percentage for your own health coverage. In 2014, they are transitioning into a new PTO format for combined vacation days and sick time. By doing so they have essentially eliminated all the banked sick days from hardworking veteran employees who never called in sick over the years. Once January rolls around these workers will no longer have access to these sick days (even if sick!) until ALL their vacation days have been used first. Getting sick a lot in 2014 = no vacation for you!

    Just look at all the negative 1 star reviews and you will see they are all from Managers, Asst. Managers, Pharmacists, and Pharmacy technicians……not temporary, part-time workers. Basically, all the star employees of the company are saying the same thing. Don't apply here!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is try to change Walgreens into a forefront health center for patients, but all they’ve really done is transform it into another Walmart clone. Soon customers will only come to Walgreens if they “have” to…..not because they “want” to. This will be especially true once all the veteran pharmacists, senior technicians, and store managers begin to depart. You can’t expect your employees to maintain happy, cheery smiles everyday when you cap their pay, cut their benefits an OT, and work them to near exhausting due to understaffing.
