Fast paced work environment
Picker (Former Employee) –  Williamston, SCSeptember 20, 2018
This is the distribution center so it's fast paced at all times. Orders must be picked correctly and packed into totes in a manner not to damage the product. If you can no handle fast paced for ten hours then this is not the job for you.

Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) –  Canton, MISeptember 20, 2018

Pros

terrible culture

Retail Associate/Photo Technician (Former Employee) –  Homewood, ILSeptember 20, 2018
Employees were expected to have completely open availability. Management hired from outside company and treated poorly, made to move stores every six months. Not much else to say. Working hard makes you a work horse to this company and little else.

below average
Shift Lead (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WASeptember 20, 2018
Walgreens employees are the best to work with but as a whole, they try to cut corners and cut hours for employees so Walgreens can "save money". It's not a fun place.

enjoyable place to work.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WISeptember 20, 2018
Walgreens is a billion dollar business and I have enjoyed working for them for many years but there is a problem within the corporate makeup of the company that makes working there a challenge.

I have worked in three different Walgreens in three different states and it all boils down to lack of employee work hours. Hired on as a full time employee 40 hours a week, but when May came along hours were cute back to 20. All employees suffered terribly by these cutbacks and the store itself became a shambled miss because there was no time to complete important tasks, which then led to added stress. If you are looking for a job for fun, this is a place to work but unless you are going into management, the pay is to low to support oneself let alone a family.
Pros
Good health insurance
Cons
low salary, hour cuts

The company sucks the life out of you.
Shift Lead (Former Employee) –  DelawareSeptember 20, 2018
District Managers stress out Store Managers over customer receipt surveys, causing Store Managers to constantly change the focus of associates between tasks and customer service. Associates feel like rubber bands being stretched too far, about to break.
Pros
Paycheck
Cons
Everything else

Fast paced environment

If you prefer to be busy, great place.
Cons
Can be overwhelming at times.

Almost wish I had never taken the job....
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCSeptember 20, 2018
My first store was a good experience....learned a lot, with a hard-working team. The next store not so much. The female manager didn't seem to like another female being in her store, or maybe it was that she knew I didn't like her laziness. She let certain employees get away with pretty much anything while she sat in the office all day. The other managers had to do all the work. And god forbid you have a family emergency! Karma sucks! Onto bigger and better things. The things I still hear about this company and the things they do to employees amazes me.
Pros
Never know what you'll get
Cons
Treatment of employees, long hours

Good pay, horrible hours
Staff Pharmacist (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXSeptember 19, 2018
The job was like many retail pharmacy jobs. Fast paced, but corporate always trying to save money so they cut hours and pharmacists are forced to work with as little technician help as possible.
Pros
Good salary
Cons
horrible hours, working holidays.

Staff Pharmacist (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZSeptember 19, 2018
Most of the district leaders at Walgreens are front store managers that have been promoted to district leaders. I found it difficult to convey what I thought was important information and as such, did not receive proper response.
Pros
Ability to pick up nearly unlimited extra shifts for new grads
Cons
Weak district leadership

Assistant Store Manager Trainee (Former Employee) –  Palos Heights, ILSeptember 19, 2018
Didn't advance after the company changed direction from a community based to internationally based chain store. If you would like to start as a pharmacy technician, be prepared for not-so-nice customers and awful insurance claims.

Sr. Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) –  Goodyear, AZSeptember 19, 2018
This company was a good place to work at with plenty of work if you like to stay busy. I enjoyed my four year career with them in pharmacy and all of the employees got along and were team oriented.

Would never work there again
Management Trainee (MGT) (Former Employee) –  Lake Charles, LASeptember 19, 2018
What they require of their management is criminal. Working 50-70 hour work weeks with no overtime and a poor bonus structure doesn't motivate you to excel. Couple that the lack of loyalty on the companies part and you have a recipe for an unhappy experience.

Still enjoyable, unsure of new direction company
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  MichiganSeptember 19, 2018
Day to day is generally pretty enjoyable. The company seems to be moving in a different direction, and we are not always receiving the whole picture. More transparency would go a long way.
