I worked at Walgreens part-time (More than a year)

Pros

15% discount on most items, 20% on the Walgreens brand.
Training in management and pharmacy.

Cons

Small stores are like small towns, everyone knows almost all the gossip. Most employees are young high school age working around minimum wage.
Halloween is the worst holiday time to work. Kids destroy the aisles!
I became angry at snow storms because that means we have to mop the entire store throughout the day and one last time at the end of the night to keep all dirt tracks off the floor.

Advice to Management

Don't get involved in high school drama.
