I have been working at Walgreens part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

mostly nice and helpful employees. mostly everyone seems to work hard and put in sincere effort. employees are a good team, except for one assistant manager who doesn't seem to take his work seriously and slows us all down with his unproductivity. fair pay.

Cons

hard work, overwhelming customers. stress dealing with customers. pressure to focus on details with neatness. one of the assistant managers often makes us work overtime after closing because the job isn't done. he also doesn't seem to enjoy his work and seems unproductive during the day. he doesn't seem to want to help the customers. too much pressure to try to sell things.

Advice to Management

communicate and connect better with employees. dont assume things. listen. too much demanding work. manager is too much of a perfectionist

    "Good but choatic. Sub-par innovation means the future is a bit hazy. Good place to learn ecommerce."

    Pros

    People, location, energy, you can do well under the right management

    Cons

    Glass ceiling, constant chaos, bad management, no innovation, bad values.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that drugstore lost its edge with the Walgreens merger. Now, it is so concerned with keeping Walgreens happy and so busy watching its competitors that there is no innovation happening on the sites which is too bad. Settling for sub-par solutions is not the right answer.

    I worked at Walgreens full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good salary, regular raises, good benefits

    Cons

    Not a family oriented company
    Easter isn't a company recognized holiday
    They write you up for stupid things...3 write ups-you're gone

    Advice to Management

    This company was good back in early 2000 but the past few years it's all about how much money you can make the company and how little employees can accomplish this task. Forget about being there for the patients. You take away the automated dispensing machines out of the "slower" pharmacies & continue to cut tech hours. Basically all the "good" employees are gone now because of the stupid upper management decisions.
