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

Pros

The hourly rate isn't the worst you could get as a pharmacy technician. You have the option in the pharmacy to make "promotional monies or PM's" whenever you sell a "prescription savings club or PSC". Usually you make $1 per sale. Lately they've been giving $5 per sale. Which is nice, but that doesn't really feel like anything compared to how they used to do it.

Cons

They keep cutting hours, which decreases the amount of help we get, increases our stress level as a whole. Walgreen's is a ticking time-bomb. We're getting less and less PM's as a whole. Now we've switched to a Balance Rewards card, which doesn't give you as much back as say, a "register rewards" coupon.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees better. Back them up. Make sure they have the help they need to do their job better with enthusiasm so they can treat your customers and patients in order to be well.
