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

    Pros

    Employee discount; meeting some great customers; the pay

    Cons

    Rude customers who throw a tantrum and who like to throw money and rewards cards at you; a ton of pressure to get a laundry list of stuff done and run photo (or even register 1) while being constantly interrupted by customers and coworkers; don't get to leave on time; always having to drop what you're doing to ring up alcohol because the cashier is under 21.

    Advice to Management

    Have additional help on days before a holiday or during peak times; don't stretch your people too thin; divide work evenly between the day and night shifts - have some of the duties on the laundry list done by the day folks who have more time (before peak hours) as opposed to throwing everything on the night people. And for the love of God, hire people old enough to ring up alcohol!
