    I worked at Walgreens full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They start you at $10 /hr now and you get a raise every year (cents) Benefits I heard are pretty good. Your team members are usually helpful You get 30 minute lunch and two 15 minute breaks They multi train you, depending on their needs which means you dont have to just be a cashier while you work there. They work around your schedule. Great for college students. Relatively easy work if you have customer service experience As long as you are a good worker and show you want to move up, they will help you move up. Not stressful unless you make it stressful

    Cons

    Honestly no real job cons except personal experience. If you make it a bad job it will be one. It really is going to depend on who you work with Management can be pushovers

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Walgreens full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Easy to learn In-company insurance benefits Paycheck increases with seniority

    Cons

    Experience depends on coworkers. Poor team management leads to extreme hours for everyone, including extended shifts, extra shifts, and increased workloads to make up hours, which can take its toll psychologically and physically. Additionally, company culture focuses on stringent efficiency, minimizing things like downtime, back-stock and unfinished work, regardless of outside factors. Company culture also treats the store as an "open home" to customers, encouraging them to fight over imagined sales, non-applicable coupons, and general bullheadedness, resulting in a more negative experience. Overall, would not recommend as a first retail experience.
