    I worked at Walgreens full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay is good and the work hours are not bad for retail. The industry is sound, so little threat of losing jobs.

    Cons

    Constantly changing upper leadership, which constantly changes vision and direction. Lots of change! Local leadership seems to panic at each new Big Thing.

    Pros

    You can change your availability if needed.

    Company has changed a lot and employee appreciation is at an all time low. The pay is low compared to the amount of work they expect you to do with a skeleton crew.

    Pros

    The people you work with are great! Customers become like family members because you develop relationships with them.

    Limited amount of hours given to the pharmacy making it difficult to have the appropriate amount of staff on hand. Extremely busy, fast paced, and understaffed makes the job very stressful.
