    I have been working at Walgreens full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, you get to meet a lot of different people and play a role in their health.

    Cons

    Stress, unrealistic goals, unsafe work environment (for patients). Working in retail will always be stressful and slightly unrealistic, but the company has taken this to a whole new level this year. We are pushed to meet unrealistic goals while sacrificing patient safety. It has brought a whole new meaning to the word stress.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and provide just a little more staffing to achieve your objectives.

    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interact with customers and peers from all walks of life, great opportunity to be a teacher to your employees. Figuring out new ways to drive sales and profit

    Cons

    Seems to be a huge disconnect between corporate management and field personnel. A lot of micromanaging and no consistency in how district management lead their stores in different parts of the company. Poor work/life balance. They ask A LOT out of store personnel but rarely give the proper tools to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Stop listening to Wall Street and listen to your customers and employees. Those are the 2 groups of people that will make any business shine or fail. Start by being a leader in the industry like we use to be instead of following the status quo
