Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

-better than minimum wage pay
-great work environment
-management seems to have a decent hold on what they are doing

Cons

-rarely feel pressured from management about pushing special sales to customers who you know don't want to buy those things, leading to unhappy customers.

Advice to Management

Not really to management, but the company as a whole, get rid of the "monthly special sales" they are a waste of time, if people want something they will get it, 90% of the time when you ask if they want to buy those items it just bugs them and they feel pressured.
