I have been working at Walgreens

Pros

Good for entry level management position straight out of college. Just do not stay too long. Pay is lower than industry standard and recent "enhancements" of medical insurances significantly lowered the value of those benefits. Will usually work with your schedule needs, but that depends heavily on particular store manager.

Cons

Growth has slowed and there is a lot of legacy people in the pipeline to take up all upcoming opportunities, so don't waste your time if you want to move up quickly, unless you're a pharmacist, than you're set.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please improve internal communication. Store managers do not pass on information to employees even when it is made available. Lower store management is very confused about recent reorganization. You will lose your good people quick, if you do not change quickly internal culture. You are about to lose me, after 7 years of dedicated work.

    Pros

    The pay for first time managment is not bad.

    Cons

    Working overnight some times by your self. You are either on the fast track or going no where. I was thrown under the bus and taking the fall for something the store manager did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good first job for experience right out of collage.

    I worked at Walgreens

    Pros

    Pay levels are above most other retailers, stores are everywhere and you can request transfers to other districts, secure job

    Cons

    Management style at the store and district level is very poor. Most district managers are rude and show no concern for employees or their careers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review and revamp leadership in louisville, ky districts. Storemanagers and especially assistant managers are treated as non human slaves of the company
