    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fantastic employees. Usually positive atmosphere. Breaks are always guaranteed. Good benefits for employees. Very flexible on scheaduling. Close to home.

    Cons

    Pay. What is expected for minimum wage. Too many corporate rules on what customer verbiage required to repeat. No bonus. No raise over .25 per hour yearly up to cap of 10.00 per hour. Clientel expects concierge service many times and not enough workers available to do what corporate encourages as extra ordinary care. Managers, if not store manager or assistant manager are considered "team lead" and are now paid barely more than new hire cashiers with the same expectations as the managers achieve. While health insurance is low for employees it is very high for dependents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher pay for employees that actually put forth effort and concern for customers. Right now there is the same pay for all employees whether they work or not. Put more staff in place to achieve customer satisfaction and less required verbiage to repeat constantly. Less talk, more employees to service customers to achieve satisfaction survey results.

    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of room for advancement, stable company, full benefits. A young hard working person could move up to district manager or beyond.

    Cons

    Very physical job, some of the procedures and policies are frustrating, limited payroll hours. No clear cut training program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline the checkout process, offer some product training, clear path for advancement, ASM T class 4 times per year.
