Pros

Close to my house. This is honestly the only advantage...took me 5-10 minutes to get to work but I think I was lucky. Not everyone shares that experience.

Cons

If you're thinking about a job just to have a job - Walgreens is ok.

If you want a serious and rewarding career - RUN AWAY FROM WAG! Absolutely nothing positive has happened with this company in the last five years. They are a company beholden to wall street and nothing comes between that - even the lives of the workers they abuse.

Advice to Management

Start caring about your employees as much as you care about wall street. Do not lie to your assistant managers guaranteeing them overtime pay and then snake it away without even so much as a thought about how it would affect those people.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Decent pay for managers, some potential for growth depending on the area. Always plenty of work to do to keep busy.

    Cons

    Cheap company, always cutting payroll without any warning. Biased promotions depending on who you know. Lack of communication from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Quit cutting payroll. Customer service is on the decline, losing alot of customers because of payroll slashing. Talk to your emloyees and quit being so dis-connected.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Team mindset. You feel like you're part of a bigger whole, more so than at other places of employment.

    Cons

    Some of the pharmacy computer outages and glitches suck and really slow down your progress in the work place. Patches from corporate are slow in coming.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the computer glitches in the pharmacy software.
