    I have been working at Walgreens part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Everyone is close to each other and feels like a family.

    Cons

    Corporate execs push way more onto retail workers than other jobs ive had. Store manager did absolutely nothing ever single day and got away with it. Always busy, never any down time.

    Advice to Management

    Stop shoving upselling down your workers throats.
