  • Employee Discount(670 comments)

    “I think the discount is great. I don't remember how much it was though. It's awesome when they have massive sales during holidays and you...”

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(265 comments)

    “They went to a all in one and lump sick and PTO into one category. You earned time off as you worked. You could bank up to 120% of what you were...”

  • Health Insurance(184 comments)

    “Not as good as it could be, nor as good as it was prior to WAG and Boots merging as well as the passage of AHA.”

    It seemed like your typical full benefits package at any company with lots of opportunity to invest and save for retirement. They definitely care about their employees.

    I did not partake in the company insurance but I did receive in store discounts. The discounts were very minimal. Only 15% off in-store products excluding dairy, nicotine, and alcohol. Though sometimes the discount would make products practically free with a coupon, I feel like I spent much more money here than I should have. I heard from others that the company insurance was highly affordable.

    The cell phone plan discount is 22% when you use the online enrollment tool correctly. Just did it. Moved from AT&T to Walgreens as an employee.

    The benefits package was very affordable and had many options to chose from

    For a company portraying itself as a leader in healthcare, benefits are way too expensive.

    There was a time when the retirement was potentially beneficial, it isn't. You get time off, but can't take it, the health and dental aren't too bad; better than most. But overall the company sees you as another number, not a human.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Shift Lead in Lake Mary, Florida

    Best thing - lots of options; worse - all vacation time and sick days are tied into an hours bank

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Walgreens Pharmacy Manager in Concord, California

    Their health care benefits package used to be great. After the passage of the Affordable Healthcare Act and the acquisition of Boots the benefits became atrocious and almost tripled in cost. As an example my paycheck deduction for healthcare benefits was ~$300/month before and went to ~$850/month after. Copays also went up on medications, a pro air inhaler went from $10 to $45 respectively. Also the copay for a child's visit to the pediatrician went from $25 copay/visit to $150. The only thing covered was a well check up visit, or annual physical.

    No one will tell you when to apply for benefits.

    The 401K is good. The health benefits are terrible. You will pay your premiums for insurance in addition to your out of pocket costs and never reach your deductible.
