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

Pros

-Fun work staff
-Awesome employee discount
-Really easy to get a job at any Walgreens
-Easy to be promoted

Cons

The company is absolutely horrible. Corporate outsources as much as they can. Recently Walgreens bought a chain in Europe and has decided to cut the Assistant Manager position to make a bigger profit; typical corporation.

Advice to Management

Relax the work load on shift lead.

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

    Pros

    The employee discount is the best Pro IMHO. Location can also be a pro, if you're lucky to be hired by one close to you!

    Cons

    Same as anywhere else, there are good managers, and bad ones... pray to be scheduled to work with a good one & smooth sailing, otherwise, it can be a nightmare!

    Advice to Management

    Some managers really need to learn the basics about how to speak to employees, without speaking down to, or belittling them.

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

    Pros

    Better than min wage. Got to meet a lot of different people

    Cons

    Hours were cut every month, lower than average technician pay, no coverage for sick time or in the pharmacy on a regular day. Technicians who were rude made the rules because management did not do their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better than dirt. Very short handed environment that gets very hostile.
