    I worked at Walgreens part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great first service-oriented job. good training to new employees and cashier register technology is very user friendly and easy to learn. I always felt supported by management and was sad to leave.

    Cons

    typically only one cashier and you have to call for help for additional cashiers so lines can build up quickly

    I have been working at Walgreens full-time

    Pros

    Currently management in my area is getting better, over the years things have changed. Things get better then they go downhill again. As long as you have a good team that you work with the job is great.

    Cons

    Cutting benefits for retirees, pharmacists haven't gotten a raise in 2 years. Not enough pharmacy staff

    Advice to Management

    Help the pharmacy. Stop pushing corporate bull

    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great environment, great pay for hourlies, laid back environment

    Cons

    Complete lack of development with employees as I not only received zero tuition reimbursement, I was given no management or internship offers despite getting multiple offers in college. Also it's essentially a union environment as everything is seniority based
