Benefits are great and easy to move up with the company and if you’re a Man U can go far
Pay Overworked Women aren’t paid fairly Too much to do with little hours Expect too much for wage

Walgreens has good benefits and they pay decently if you are a student just out of high school. Coworkers are easy to get along with.
If you work at a 24/7 Walgreens, expect to work really lame hours (holidays, weekends, etc.). It was also difficult to do shift exchanges and receive important days for time off.

They have good benefits and resources but they are only for a limited amount of time.
The pay is horrible for a upper level position. As the ESM you are responsible for so much training, coaching, hiring etc. You have to hold team members accountable and not to mention play a role in assisting in the pharmacy. The ESM gets paid $19 an hour and you have shift leads making $18 just coming into the company. The cashiers are making $15 just coming into the company. How is the ESM position pay so close to other team members? Store managers are starting at $50,000 that is so sad. Walgreens just not value dedicated employees anymore. That’s why a lot of the stores are failing and the turn over is so high.

Profit Sharing and Benefits are positives including free health testing and $5 copays at Take Care clinics for non-emergency treatments. Employee discount is nice with 15-20%
Not enough room for advancement with cutbacks to hiring and less management positions available

Overall it is pleasant to work there because of the job benefits and the people I work with.
Like all jobs some of the customers can be irritating.

Decent benefits but not worth what you need to do in order to earn them. They have many stores though so chances to move around.
Terrible management, no vision, long hours. I was in 3 stores over course of a year. Work life balance non existent.2
