PHOTO SPECIALIST & CUSTOMER SERVICE ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Scott, LA – March 16, 2018
You regularly straightened the store, processed customer transactions, unloaded truck, stocked shelves, process photo orders, all while exhibited excellent customer service. I learned what it takes for a store to run properly. The most enjoyable part of my job was my co-workers and customers. I love helping people.
Shift Lead (Current Employee) – Kirkwood, MO – March 16, 2018
A shift at Walgreens starts with clocking in and checking your station and to-do list. Store managers make to-do lists for everyone on the schedule for the day. Aside from making sure customers are taken care of and in a timely manner, you have to make sure you keep your department clean and work on your to-do list throughout the day.
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee) – Hesperia, CA – March 16, 2018
They aren't very flexible when it comes to scheduling. if you need days off, they never want to give you days off they suck and the managers are mean and talk a lot of gossip about each other. making life very stressful, and the customers don't make it any easier.
Pitiful Packer Position (Former Employee) – Perrysburg, OH Distribution Center – March 16, 2018
Poor management and ZERO amount of job training. On day one of the job you're thrown as if into a lion's den to fend for yourself. I pity the fools that fall for the lackluster 'managers', as most are novices with few people skills. Treated as high schoolers during break times, minus the bells ringing and having to carry a hall pass to use the restroom. Awful place...be warned!
Run far far away and don't look back as Lot's wife did!!!
Senior Beauty Advisor (Former Employee) – Hoover, AL – March 15, 2018
The S.B.A. typical work day involves interacting with customers and asking questions to help them find the best beauty, skin care or grooming items. I learned a lot about the need to have a SPF of at least 30 on your face daily to protect it from the harmful effects of sun damage. Walgreens management is really good about promoting from within the company. However, if you ever want to be the top manager of a store; then you will have to pass a test on pharmacy. The workplace culture is wonderful. It is about going out of the way to please the customer and giving great service. The hardest part of the job is when people call in sick. It makes it tough on everyone who works in the store. Whether it is a cashier, photo or general help. It effects the employees getting things done in their department due to having to help out in the area of the person who called in. The hardest part of the job is unloading big, heavy boxes and cases of water when the truck arrives from the warehouse weekly. The most enjoyable part about the job is the employees that you work with! They end up becoming your friends for life. This is due to Walgreen's having a low turn over in employees.

Head of Cosmetic Department (Current Employee) – Decatur, IL – March 15, 2018
Walgreens has downsized Just the slow down in economy now a days It is a very good place to work for But 8 hours a week just isn't enough. A lot of other employees work two jobs. Insurance companies have made their customers go with other pharmacy's.
Always busy and something new to learn everyday. Always room for advancement. Management was helpful when needed to step up and help out. Understanding that dealing with a sick customer is never easy but rewarding in the end.
When schedule ends someone is there to relieve you
