    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. "Pleasant Good Place to start"

    I worked at Walgreens part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The hours are good if just starting out. The On-The-Job training is adequate. Usually don't have to work every holiday or all of a holiday. Flexible scheduling is prior notice is given. Prescription services and health clinic services bring people into the store.

    Cons

    Stretch managers and supervisors way too thin. The managers rather leave the store short staffed than give over-time.

    Advice to Management

    The managers can't take care of the customers if they are exhausted.
