Former Employee - Store Manager in Phoenix, AZ
Former Employee - Store Manager in Phoenix, AZ

I worked at Walgreens full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Steady hours, always something new to learn, new programs, stores everywhere.

Cons

Politics, not what you know but who. DM favorites, unfairness from corporate and district management. Do 10x more with 10x less, push push push sales. Typical corporation, executives get million dollar raises while hourly workers get .17 raises.

Advice to Management

Degree is everything. If you have 20 years walgreens experience but no degree they will promote the person off street with a degree in astrology because they can do a great PowerPoint presentation but can't unload 1700 pc truck at 5am.
