In 2015, team members are eligible for Paid Time Off (PTO). The rate at which you accrue your PTO is based on your years of service, average hours per week, and position.
Walgreens has recently change their accrual rates for PTO and vacation which unfortunately affected a lot of their long term employees. They have made changes similar to this numerous times and it seems to always have a negative effect on their long term employees. I expect this pattern to continue.
Depending on how much hours you have, you can always chose to use your vacation hours or cash them out if you need more money. Vacations during the holidays are harder to request off because Walgreens is open 365 days a year.
It is nice that one can accrue paid time off, even while only working 32 hours.
Takes too long to get to 25 paid days off per year.
Earning rate sucks compared to others
Cuts have been made to PTO and vacation. Sick days=PTO, so if you are part-time with no PTO accruing, you have an unexcused absence, as doctor's notes mean nothing. I believe it varies between stores, but you have 5 unexcused (no PTO used) absences for the year before you get a verbal warning, then a written, then termination.
The time off is pretty standard for a big corporation. Nothing out of the ordinary. They put a cap on the accrual after many years of no cap.
Very good Vacation packages each year.
Appreciate time with my family for sure!
not possible to work it out.
