I have been working at Walgreens full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Very difficult to give any positive comments here.

Cons

Low wages bring in low quality workers. Profit sharing sucks. Everyone is hired as a part time do to extreme cutback on hours, so being part time makes it hard to complain about hours. Management holds you account for projects that they themselves might not even finish. It is also very difficult to move up at times, unless your in the good with another manager.

Advice to Management

No advice, they know what they are doing. In the near future, ther will be 1 CL for every 3 store, which is why it is rumored that store manager position is on its way out. ASM's will be running the stores.

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

    Pros

    Salary for management and pharmacists is similar to other companies.
    Flexible day or night shifts.
    Can change schedule to accomodate days off

    Cons

    Accountability of management nor staff is not consistent
    Annual reviews has alot of personal bias from management
    Salary and bonus is not based on volume of scripts or sales
    Focus on customer service but forget to take care of employees too.

    Advice to Management

    If focusing on extraordinary customer care, then upper management should be focusing on extraordinary employee care. Employees are not taken care of.
