    I have been working at Walgreens Boots Alliance full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Ability to build great crew w/ team environment. Store manager is Supportive. Busy environment. Opportunity to build relationships with patients. Opportunity to precept.

    Cons

    Limitless demands. Salary job: requires minimum 84-hours every 2 weeks, must work every other weekend. Not entitled to breaks, must figure out how to squeeze in restroom breaks(my average 2 per shift), lucky if manage 1 food break in 10-hour shift. Statistical Requirements (KPIs): must meet #filled in #minute requirements, goal 55% done as "waiters" (completed start to finish in less than 15 minutes), >5% all scripts Returned-to-stock after 7 days, complete all 3 call lists (required 100% attempted, minimum 40% favorable outcomes), must complete minimum 1 MTM & 4 TIPs weekly through OutcomesMTM website. Constant decrease in payroll, unable to hire adequate technician help. Required to find/create off site immunization clinics w/ 25-shot minimum, and then complete them with no help and no extra compensation for the efforts. Legally Liable for EVERYTHING and if something goes wrong, even when you are out-of-town (say at your brother's funeral), you are still required to FIX-IT. When attempting to change your schedule to meet you childcare needs, while still meeting the 84-hour minimum requirement: you get told that those hours don't work for management and to come up with another plan for childcare.

    I worked at Walgreens Boots Alliance full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Hourly pay is decent (Not for what you have to do as pharmacy managers at Tier 3 or 4 stores)

    Cons

    Terminated easily (regardless of how minor or severe - pharmacists are dispensed like medication at Walgreen's Boots Alliance - no appreciation - no raises for pharmacists but other POS employees get a raise... lol - ridiculous) No loyalty (corporate world - no personal relationships) KPI goals (unreachable in most instances - especially in Memphis - corporate management acts like it's the pharmacy personnel not giving effort to support the company - they don't realize it's Memphis) Store managers (absolute laziest human beings at Walgreen's - specifically those that aren't pharmacists - which is most - how do they make this much money for their lack of performance and support in most cases??)

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Walgreens Boots Alliance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Boots discount card and perks at Christmas

    Cons

    Make you sign your life away with a million documents and do not support or back you up when something goes wrong or customer complains.. No training or support despite constant requests for help or assistance, thrown in the deep end and left to drown..
