I have been working at Walgreens full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

walgreens is a great place to work if you like fast pace environment and are good at customer service.

Cons

walgreens has gone through a couple of years of reorganization which has not benefit us managers. they have eliminated some core positions including MGTs making a good portion of us step down to be only key holders and taking a BIG pay cut and being caped on that salary

Advice to Management

walgreens has all ways been a good employer but the changes really show that we are now just a number. its all about revenue now. Having positions that are suppose to be non-management with low-caped pay is not right these key holders do to do manager duties on a daily bases and should be payed much more than they do particularly when a good standing employee with 10 years plus is effected by it.

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

    Pros

    It depends who is your manager and how good are your co workers, when I first started the manager keep the store very clean and super organized, them we had new manager this was totally the opposite everything was min the wrong place, they were hiring lazy people, no motivation it was bad, I ended quitting after 4 years.

    Cons

    lack of motivation, poor supervision, no body wants to do their jobs, I think this is a very greedy company, that doesn't really care to much about there employees, it suppose to support the wellness but only for the customers.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend to go to t he stores at nites, and do the inspections
