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

Pros

Awesome Management team and team members. Lots of fun working with people and learning a lot of new things to make the place more fun and efficient.

Cons

Its hard to transfer to 1st shift if you work at Walgreens Distribution Center, because it goes by seniority levels or length of services to get what you want.

    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    most coworkers are polite. once you learn all the procedures the gob isnt too hard

    Cons

    undertrained or lazy employees makes everyone's job harder and customer service suffers as a result

    Advice to Management

    focus on efficiency, stop the corporate promotions that the vast majority of customers are not interested in. 98% of people just want their insurance billed correctly and to get in and out without having to wait too long. customers value this significantly more than gimmick promotions like the balance rewards card. Also there are numerous and simple improvements to IC+ that could make the process much faster and easier.


  2. "good company, but i've lost the ability to be a manager. now more of a glorified stock person."

    Pros

    Good Company, established fortune 500, decent employee benefits, approachable store management and district management.

    Cons

    no room to grow. corporate changes will be eliminating our role, but there is no clear story as to what will happen to us when this happens. too much tasking, without the ability to be "above the task vs. part of it" makes mgmt become more like stock people than managing people.

    Advice to Management

    ask the staff across the country for input on new initiaties, don't just stick with specific markets or chicago-area. some things may work in the midwest but won't in other parts of the country. for example, changing the dress code back to vests...we didn't really get a true voice in this decision.
