          I worked at Duane Reade full-time for more than a year

          Pros

          No pros. They do not care about the employees that work here. I do not know how to write twenty words.

          Cons

          Everything. Pathetic wage. No benefits at all. Wants so much from you in return of a meagre wage. Run away from this job for the very first opportunity you get.

          Advice to Management

          Money hunger will cause you loss in the big run.

          Pros

          No Pros about working here at all

          Cons

          Everything, pay is far to low for what they ask of you. The company Walgreens seems to not care about the duane reade employees. For a pharmacy the copay is too high, $50 per hospital visit for full time benefits. The Union and Walgreens Co. was supposed to sign a contract to increase wages without sacrificing sick days or time off with pay. Shift leads get paid minimum wage the same as associates. The Union is also not...
