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.

    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    VERY good support by all the managers I've had above me, I was aggressively seeking promotion, and was rewarded in kind for my hard work and ambition. Even when I have struggled with aspects of my job, my boss has helped me in the form of advice and paid training.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is poor. They are looking for people who will eat sleep and breathe Walgreens

    Advice to Management

    Pharmacy is our business. How about paying our techs and pharmacy managers what they're worth and giving us enough hours to run our business effectively.
