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

Pros

Co-workers, a lot of these folks are hard working, friendly, and a pleasure to work with. Some of the management actually wants you to think for yourself & progress you as a person & leader. Benefits plan is good.

Cons

Low wages; when you work there 5 years, you should make more than $9 an hour. Some customers just have perpetually bad days and it can eat at you if you let them. Some management are unable to lead a store properly. Not too many opportunities for advancement. It can be a dead-end for most

Advice to Management

It is a fine idea to give the pharmacy the hours they need to run their pharmacies with less issues, especially the busier stores. Also, pay your employee's that demonstrate work effort, service above & beyond the call of duty, and those who customers constantly complement.
