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

    Pros

    The lessons you learn Profit Sharing Making great Friends

    Cons

    Stress!!!! The incentives you are given are on ice. You have sick days but cant use them unless emergency. You have PTO hours but god forbid you call out one day.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring more about your employees and not ALL about increasing script count and FORCING more items in a customers cart. We know we all are expendable but you don't have to threaten us with it.

    Pros

    One thing I did like about the company was the nice people I worked with at the staff level. Also the familiar faces that frequented the pharmacy.

    Cons

    Management started to cut hours and the ratio of pharmacist to technician made for a very stressful environment resulting in poor customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the pharmacist as well as the pharmacy technician. Frequently rate your district managers. Hopefully things can turn around.

    I worked at Walgreens part-time

    Pros

    Customer service is a stamp. If you've never had a job, go for one at Walgreens and learn what customer service is about. Never has the customer been more right, even when they're wrong. That seems like a "con", but as I far as much as I know, its good for business.

    Cons

    Because of the "Customer is always right" environment, the air gets tense when dealing with a difficult customer.

    I worked at Walgreens part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Close to home, part time only, customers were great. Hours were good. Time to go home. Easy job. Food and drink.

    Cons

    Management was two faced. Used me as the fall guy. Not friendly. Live in small down so not a whole lot of business.

    Advice to Management

    Get off high horse and be caring. Don't say one thing and do another. Watch lunch and breaks. Don't bow to corporate.
