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

Pros

Walgreens is a Fortune 500 company and has been so for decades. It is the largest retail pharmacy in America with stores in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. Lots of jobs available in stores, distribution centers, and at the corporate offices.

Cons

You are limited at Walgreens to make decisions outside of the company directive. The company wants something in the store, it's there whether it sells at your location or not.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust your people to make the right choices.

    Some members of management are mean and like to torment you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've worked with several different types of managers, most of them are great people. But the last one I worked with very mean and uncaring. Don't torment your employees.

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

    Pros

    Decent starting pay and most people are friendly.

    Cons

    Not sure if it's done the same way at every store but the training I received was very poor. Needs much improvement. I was basically just thrown in after completing the practice modules and expected to know how to do things at 100% proficency. And when I obviously had to ask questions, I was made to feel bad as to why I don't know how to do things. In my experience, training is successful when you are to shadow a person first and thoroughly explained all duties and how to do them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revise training.
