Pros

Walgreens wants the best pharmacists running and staffing their stores. There are pharmacists in leadership roles throughout the company and the company has strives to be a health care destination with its pharmacists as healthcare providers.

Cons

There are sometimes many directions it feels that the company is going. One week we hear about how important one specific goal is, and the next month, there is rarely followup- just a new goal that we need to meet.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate more efficiently down to the store level. The shareholders are of utmost importance, I agree - but your employees should be a very close second. We need to raise our pharmacy tech pay so that we can employ and retain the best technicians.

    Pros

    My time as a Walgreens General Manager was a wonderful experience. Great benefits, fair compensation, lots of flexibility in managing your staff.

    Cons

    Growth has slowed drastically. After General Manager, there are very few opportunities for promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your General Managers have more flexibility in scheduling. We should not be mandated to open 4 days per week (8a-5p). Working a mid-shift (10a-7p), if the General Manager is willing, strengthens overall presence for both morning and evening shifts, and might better serve the customer needs at various locations.
