I have been working at Walgreens full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits, annual raises; job security (if you follow all rules); chances for advancement (if you know the right people)

Cons

Front cashier is always the most ignored person in the store; promotions and hours are based on favoritism; if you don't speak up, you'll be placed in the same position day after day, week after week, year after year

Advice to Management

Pay attention to who's hired, there are people with Masters and Bachelors degrees that are stuck behind a register while the G.E.D. holders are promoted into management because they hang out with the store manager

    they only care about the top executives. they could careless about the employees in the stores. They keep taking more while wanting more. horrible place to work.

    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    experience in a fortune 500 company 15 percent discount on purchases usually a flexible work schedule

    Cons

    there use to be many more pros than cons but now they have taken away PMs (for the most part) they too away vacation days. The harder you work the more you will be asked to do.

    Advice to Management

    Dont ask workers who make a quarter of what a manager makes to do the work that was previously the responsibility of the manger without a pay increase of some kind.
