    I worked at Walgreens full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    No two days are ever the same. The corporate values are inspiring. Moving up the corporate ladder can be quick for those that work hard.

    Cons

    This is still retail and you have to work with minimum wage mindset employees. To be able to be a store manager you have to be a pharmacy tech. To be able to move up the ladder you will have to move to a store that has the available position (which could be in another state).

    Advice to Management

    There is a disconnect from employees and management. Managers are expected to be everything, specifically the face of HR as well. This gives no middle man for sounding boards. Many employee's feel that they are "unheard" and take it out passive agressively on the company. Many managers have high expectations of performance that leaves them little to know time for dealing with employee gripes.
