Featured Review

Current Employee - CSA - Customer Service Associate

I have been working at Walgreens full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great benefits, room for growth, and fairly simple job

Cons

Upper management can be rude depending what location

Advice to Management

Everyone works for Walgreens who's in the building, so even if you're a manager please help when lines get long or to help with daily tasks instead of "being too good" to do certain tasks.

Former Employee - Retail Merchandiser

I worked at Macy's part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Hours are flexible and managers are willing to work around your schedule. Coworkers were friendly and helpful. Employees get a nice discount on merchandise.

Cons

Short staffed once COVID hit, however, more employees were being hired when I left.

Advice to Management

Continue to be flexible with schedules. Some employees would not be able to work without the flexibility.
