    I worked at Walgreens full-time


    Steady income and great benifits for a while. Freedom to be creative in displays and inventory. Great vacation plans and double pay for holidays.


    Cut mandatory overtime, benefits declined yearly, lost Christmas bonus. The company used to feel more like a family who cared while the walgreens family ran the business. They retired out and everything became about cutting costs and positions to get more by paying less.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting corners to save a buck. I have seen unsafe conditions and pharmacists overworked without breaks while being yelled at by customers while trying to dispense possibly dangerous medicines.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Walgreens.


    It was one interview with the pharmacy manager and the store manager. They both asked a series of questions related to the job. Overall it was not a difficult interview and lasted less than 30 minutes.
