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

    Pros

    Higher ups care about your education both in scheduling and in aid programs.

    friendly and collaborative work environment.

    Cons

    You will be pressured to pursue a Pharmacy degree obviously.

    Some customers can be quite irate, or expect you to untangle an insurance mess they don't even understand themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Some initiatives from up top do not gel well with how things actually work on the ground floor.

    "be well" was plainly canned, robotic, and off-putting to customers, especially those we had come to know from repeat visits. Only about 2 months later we were told to stop saying it for exactly that reason.
