    Pros

    Overall great benefits and compensation; Good place to start if you are just out of school.

    Cons

    Very limited tech hours, the pharmacist is expected to ring up customers for anything from medications to socks. There is only a cashier part-time (a few hours per day and none on weekends). They push flu shots on every patient that walks through the door and quotas are set for each pharmacist. If you don't meet the quota, you get emails from managers on a daily basis. It becomes very stressful when you are the only pharmacist doing multiple duties simultaneously: scanning, counting, filling, checking, being at drop off AND pick up, answering all phones, doing flu shots and other vaccines, AND answering dozens of questions per day from tourists; Requesting time off is a big deal and you usually have to find your own coverage (even for sick days).

    Pros

    Admire the company culture and values that Walgreens has instilled since 1901.

    Cons

    Cost-cutting efforts over the last few years has resulted in underpaid hourly employees and an over decline in employee morale.

    Advice to Management

    Competitive pay across the board for hourly team members and entry level management.
