I have been working at Walgreens full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Decent pay for techs, the pharmacy staff is usually fun to be around.

Cons

Every few months they come out with these cheesy slogans they want us to say to every customer. When the pharmacy doesn't do well one week we get bashed for it, But when we exceed goal for a week we get no praise or no acknowlegment. Hours get cut randomly throught-out the year. We are alwasy short staffed because this is a company that would rather see their employess run around crazy then pay overtime so we can get some help when we're short.

Advice to Management

Acknowlege your employees for exceptional behavior. Pay overtime when needed

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

    Pros

    I have found no "PROS" to working for this company it just keeps getting worse every year and I cannot seem to leave this job

    Cons

    Managerial favoritism
    Under–qualified managers
    Salary cuts
    was told by corporate that they will not hire store level employees to corporate positions
    will not promote from within
    laziness
    uncoordinated operational plans
    I can keep going...

    Advice to Management

    1) hire people that have some level of business knowledge to manage, neither my store manager nor DM has a college degree.

    2) listen to employees that have experience on your front lines, don't just sweep their ideas under the table.

    3) treat your employees better if you want them to work "for" you, not just work, employee morale is so low that no one actually cares and just goes through the motions.

    4) IF THE STORES HAVE TO BE OPEN ON HOLIDAYS CORPORATE SHOULD BE TOO.

    5) once again i can keep going...
