What people are saying about Walgreens
a year ago
Hi so I'm in bit of a dilemma. I'm a Senior Pharmacy Tech at Walgreens and make around 20 dollars an hour. I went to manager to talk about a raise to help with upcoming bills so she talked with the DM and he said no. Thus began my search for a new job with better pay. I have offers from Aurora and Froedert for 25 an hour. One is offering a 1000 dollar sign on and the other a 3000 dollar sign on. Yesterday my manager at Walgreens sat me down and told me she'd love me as the RXOM for 25 an hour.

Currently a store manager at Walgreens. Stuck with no sign of upward movement anytime soon. I received an offer at Ulta with a significant pay cut and lower position with room to grow to a GM. Insurance is better, schedule is worse. My husband and I would like to try and start a family. Any advice?

Inusrance and overtime is still one of the best. If you know how to use it you will be able to make a lot of money
work load is very high and they keep cutting hours this leads to very stressed out workers

- Benefits (profit sharing, etc) - Flexibility with hours (had family crisis come up and was able to deal with it no problem) - Great and friendly customers
- Low pay - No potential for growth - No cost of living raise (minimum wage goes up, new hires make more than you) - High turn over - Profit sharing website was confusing, so 3 years was spent NOT earning my profit sharing benefits1

Better than CVS or Walmart—offering a decent wage and hours plus coverage and overlap is usually good Work life balance Benefits
Pressure to meet KPIs and metrics outweighs employee satisfaction Unprofessionalism amongst management Somewhat difficult to move positions within the company

- every day Is different when it comes to working with the public - several different departments - flexible scheduling - managers have an open door policy - for being retail, a lot of challenges are placed on every employee to make goals and complete task lists daily weekly and monthly. This will add to your resume!
-the stores are open 365 days a year (pharmacy hours and availablity vary w/ holidays) - some of the scheduling (nights) is late! For those who do not like to work late -as mentioned above, while this is a retail job,a lot is expected of you. There are busier stores as well. Everyone handles this differently. - Open availability is strongly encouraged.
