    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've gotten multiple raises and promoted quickly. All of my bosses have been amazing and since I'm a hard worker it has paid off! Always have opportunities for overtime.

    Cons

    Not enough pay for the responsibilities given. Sometimes if one person calls in you're understaffed. Depending on your work ethic you can get unmotivated.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to be harder on employees who call in a lot or show up late.
