    I have been working at Walgreens part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work environment is amazing and I got to meet some amazing people that I consider family.

    Cons

    sometimes you have days just like any job where customers can get unruly but it comes with the job and its how you handle the situation is what matters

    Advice to Management

    take more time to get to know your employees and create a teamwork I where everyone uses their strengths to come up with something that works great. Don't be lenient, people will take advantage, set rules and specific ways to follow and people should act accordingly.

    Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Shreveport, LA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Walgreens (Shreveport, LA).

    Interview

    Too long to endure.There were many people applying for the job and they sometimes mislead you into thinking the job is one thing when it is commission. Many people do not want to do back breaking work like that. Trying to convince someone to buy a product. That is too much.
