    I worked at Walgreens full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone treats you like a family and knows how to have a good time while still taking things seriously. Managers and co-workers will take time out of their schedule to help you out with anything you need and will even do things for you on your birthday and stuff. Excellent training and benefits, will definitely recommend.

    Cons

    I must enter five words here even though there are no cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

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

    Pros

    If you work hard it will be rewarded. I started as a pharmacy technician and now two years later I'm a senior tech. I gave it my all and the company rewards me time and time again. This is the best company I have ever worked for. We started a new Frontier program to get employee input on multiple measures and it's working great. I love that they involve me.

    Cons

    Long hours sometimes without many breaks. Must be able to work fast pace.

    Pros

    Easy to get into the pharmacy field. They will pay for all registration and certification fees for techs.

    Cons

    Other employees are very hostile. Not much training other than a couple days in front of a computer then you are just thrown in handling peoples life-saving medications.

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

    Pros

    Good discounts.
    Easy learning new machines and new procedures.

    Cons

    Lots of worker turn over, constantly having to train new people.
    I was given a write up because I wouldn't let another store managers adult daughter sit and text all day. The girl quit because she didn't like be telling her to do her job.

    Advice to Management

    Don't punish a long time employee because they tried to teach another managers spoiled brat .
