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

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment, allows for innovation and independent thinking. Up to date with current changes in pharmacy practice Opportunities for management positions if you're up for the challenge.

    Cons

    Lack of help during the busy times of the year, customer service becomes very demanding and support staff can be difficult to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Give incentive to support staff to encourage them to stay with the company so they don't leave for an independent or competitor after they've been trained.

    I worked at Walgreens part-time

    Pros

    Like all retail pharmacies, work depends on the team dynamic. I was lucky and had great pharmacists and coworkers who made the job feel easier. You will run into angry customers who devalue your job and don't understand the process of filling a prescription, insurance, and drug availability, however you also have those customers that you're happy to have helped.

    Cons

    The pay was lower than other retail pharmacies.

    Cons

    Upper management is concerned with growing the bottom line. Although this is the purpose of a business, the cuts they make feel more harsh than is needed.
