Walgreens hired me without much experience and provided a great training atmosphere.

    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have to say the benefits are really good. The main reason it gets 3 stars.

    Cons

    The hours are constantly cut while the work piles on. The incentive to increase sales in the cosmetic department doesn't work if you cut hours and don't let them have time to pull bays, do reset ext. Also doing management work with out the pay is criminal. No respect from management. Not having an employee's back. Making less then 10$ an hour when your the head of your department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop cutting hours or stop piling on the work to the employees. We can only do so much. You can get more done in having 2- 8 hour shifts then one 8 hour. Increase the pay to your department heads and give increases and bonuses to employees who go out of there way. Just because someone has been with the company for over 10 years doesn't mean they are good at there job.

    Pros

    High level of job security. Company is well positioned to have a long future in the pharmaceuticals industry and the retail environment is always in need of competent leadership.

    Cons

    The pay doesn't meet job requirements. Leaders are expected to be pseudo-store managers without any hiring/disciplinary ability. The company recently cut an assistant manager level position forcing employees to either find an opening at a new store or accept a demotion in status and pay. Career opportunities are very limited and very much based on tenure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent with hourly employees. While being a leader my employees are more efficient when they understand why and how important their tasks are. I've found upper management to be very reluctant in this sense.
