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

    Pros

    Get to learn how to do dozens of things and be creative with merchandising. Good balance of physical and office work. There's a lot of things to learn such as pharmacy, photo equipment, etc.

    Cons

    Lack of tools provided to do the job. The inventory system is broken. Actually, all the software constantly has problems. Two branches of corporate will tell you to do opposite things. The pharmacy has been gutted of all their hours and every pharmacist is miserable. Drastic cuts in hours, jobs, and pay results in employees leaving, inability to attract competent workers, and little time to pursue increasingly impossible goals. Resources get cut while bars are raised.

    Advice to Management

    Walgreen's isn't where the best retail workers go anymore for a job. The company is being gutted of what made it great by the attrition of your decisions.

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

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are good, especially for the area that I am in. Vacation, sick days, and holidays are great...the way they are now.

    Cons

    Hours are inconsistent. I have compared sales from last year and they are up, but we have less payroll hours to work with. And then we get complaints from customers because we are not staffed properly.

    Advice to Management

    Have a realistic goal with payroll hours. Listen to employees work on the floor and are legitimately complaining about working conditions.
