Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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.

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

    Pros

    employees are awesome, you really get all around experience, pay is average, but current cutbacks in pay suck, so not sure about the new pay

    Cons

    company going through a re structuring which means doing same job for A LOT less pay, VERY hard to get promoted, especially lots of favortism & you may end up at a difficult location and not look as good as a much easier one. Hours vary, no set schedule, often forced to work over night or overtime if a manager calls out without a choice, long work hours without breaks or lunches.

    Advice to Management

    DON'T CUT MANAGEMENT pay, YOU'RE loosing the very reason customers go to Walgreens in spite of their markups, a lot mgt knows their customers well as do the employees, and they've earned their raises, to cut them is CRAZY. You'll loose great expertise, merchandising, people skills etc. its evident, shift leads don't provide same expertise as managers.
