I have been working at Walgreens full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The schedule is flexible. I have some really good co-workers. You meet some really nice people (customers).

Cons

Walgreens does not give enough hours for us to have enough help for the work that needs to be accomplished. Also getting 40 hour in 1 week is a joke. You can be scheduled to work 6 days in 1 week and still not get 40 hours, ridiculous! The job is not high on the degree of difficulty but the hardest part is dealing with the public.

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

    Pros

    Pay appropriate but the staff really deserves combat pay with the jobs they try to do all at one time. People need the work and the company presents a great front. They appear to be a perfect group until you get caught inside and look from the inside out. They normally have openings because you can be removed for no real reason, just get on someone's wrong side and see what happens. Culture and values appear wonderful, but it's lip service. You work for something and they take it away. Not the way to run a good business in any economy.

    Cons

    Hostile atmosphere due to lack of support and dog eat dog attitude. Some of the people that control this state believe they are superior to everyone however the opposite is true, they do not know how to manage. Several manage by sheer intimidation and retaliation, which is supposed to be against company policy and the laws of this nation. Humiliation and degradation are really what happens. It is like old state politics and Louisiana's reputation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope your are unaware that middle management breaks the law on a regular basis as a normal course of doing business.
