Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Walgreens full-time

Pros

Pay is very competitive, benefits are ok, job security if you perform well.

Cons

Not enough help, cost cutting is too rapid which is contributing to low morale and increased complaints from customers about poor service. Also, opportunities to move up out of service clerk positions are harder to come by now, and even if you make it to the Shift Lead position, you will be used and abused, and have little chance of moving up past that.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to what is going on in each individual store, instead of assuming every store in a particular "region" is the same. Do more frequent anonymous surveys to get a feel for employee morale and how you could increase it.

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

    Pros

    Great people. Very friendly. Employee discount program is generous within the store and with other companies.

    Cons

    Hours are rationed like a soviet commune even if there is need for more help. Not allocated enough time to finish mandatory training.

    Advice to Management

    Having enough technicians to cover all the stations would help with the metrics that corporate wants to see.


  2. "A very social atmosphere with customers."
