    I worked at Walgreens full-time

    Pros

    Not a terrible experience, good workout.

    Cons

    As an assistant manager there are very few advancement opportunities, and your primary function is more of a swing person throughout the store to aid each department and direct any staff (rarely were any in my stores) to areas of most need.

    Advice to Management

    Define roles of junior management staff to give them ownership of something. Too often I sat in the parking lot of my store prior to my shift dreading my upcoming day knowing I would be switching between three areas throughout, the front register, stocking, Rx window and doing very little managing because there were too few staff members.


  2. "One of the best retail jobs I've had."

    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.
