    I worked at Walgreens

    Pros

    I loved helping the customers and learning about the different medications and medical conditions. The hours were not bad either.

    Cons

    As with any retail pharmacy, you will get screamed at and called names. It really depends on how busy of a Walgreens you work at for what kind of experience you will have. I worked at a small one without a drive-thru and I loved it, but I hated subbing at very busy stores where I stood at the drive-thru the entire time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay for techs is very low compared to competitors. Also, pharmacy managers can get away with a lot and it's all about who you know and who you're friends with in the corporate office.
