    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay is ok, if you are high enough in the company. Lots of opportunities to grow in the company. Wide range of opportunity if you want to move to new locations, Over 7,000 stores nationwide.

    Cons

    Budget hours are not enough to complete the job duties expected often. Open 365 days a year, so family holidays are practically unheard of. Insurance is OK, but could be better considering we are the Pharmacy America Trusts. TriCare Insured employees can't even fill their medicine at the pharmacy they work for.

    Advice to Management

    You need to spend more time in the stores to see everything from the perspective of doing the labor, it's a lot different than sitting behind a desk. Maybe then you would see that their are too many bosses wanting us to do things, but not enough manpower to do them. You want us to regain RX numbers, but we don't have enough people to take care of the ones we do still have.
