    Pros

    The benefits are decent for a retailer. 401k options, vacation time, medical and dental benefits. That is pretty much it for pros.

    Cons

    The pay has gone down. They have eliminated one assistant manager position from each store and replaced with shift managers who are paid less money.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to cut costs at the expense of employee pay as there are other retailers who offer better pay out there.

    Pros

    Easy Job, great co-workers, manager typically approves all days/shifts requested that you need off. Fun place to work. Able to earn extra money by selling specific items. Great benefit packages.

    Cons

    Manager does not know how to make a schedule to save his life! Working 40 hours with split days off one week, then the next week working four days straight with 3 days off. Constantly switching you from opening to closing shifts.
    Pay is not good for the work that is expected.
    No room for advancement, well there is but if you ask one of my bosses, because we have 5, he will openly tell you hes a single broke man and walgreens doesn't pay him squat.
    Favoritism
    Weird rules for breaks. If you work day shift, you get 2 15 minute breaks and a 30. if you work night shift you only get one 15 and a 30. They say because the night shift has to prepare for closing and are too busy to take that extra 15. Which is not true, night shift is the most boring shift, and even tho we close at midnight, we are typically done with closing routine by 10pm.

    Advice to Management

    Take a scheduling class
    Quit punishing people for call-ins that are medically necessary
    Quit playing favorites

    Pros

    Shift rotations made it less monotonous. Fast paced. Ability to cover shifts at other stores. Help from managers when overly busy.

    Cons

    Little pay increase. Hours were cut heavily. Management seemed to come and go. The store changed from a 24 hour pharmacy to only open until 10 pm. Very little practical training.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on pharmacy training versus interpersonal training. Schedule more than 2 workers on weekend days. Provide more communication with management changes outside of the pharmacy.
