High stress environment!
Senior Certified Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) –  New HampshireJuly 12, 2018
There was often not enough employees available and working at all times. We were not compensated appropriately for the job. There is a huge gap between technician and pharmacist pay scale. I’m not saying they should be close but, a senior certified tech working with a company for many many years should be making more than $20000.00 for a 10 year employee. That is poverty level when you have children and you work so hard. Its just not fair. I feel $34000.00 would be more appropriate.
Pros
Coworkers
Cons

Sales/Senior Beauty Advisor Cosmetics (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, OH 45013July 12, 2018
Walgreens was very fast paces. They also changed managers and some were nice and some were not. The job was very hard at times when you would have to stand on your feet for hours.

Stressful
Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Miami, FLJuly 12, 2018
Shift Lead/Assistant Manager/ Store Manager positions are extremely stressful. Labor Hours are continually cut and standards must be maintained with less help. Way too many responsibilities and tasks for the help provided. Middle/upper management have little/no respect or empathy for frontline team members at store level and foster an environment that provides very little positive feedback or support. Basically, suck it up and get it done. Other than that.... store manager salary is pretty good, benefits and insurance are great and 401k matches 1-1.

Pharmacy
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) –  ColoradoJuly 12, 2018
Pharmacy was organized and well run. The coworkers were great at helping with questions as you learn the systems and processes.
Pay is poor for what you do and the low manning they maintain in the pharmacy. Which is where they make their money.
Pros
People, processes
Cons
Pay, Manning

Not much to say
Crew Member (Current Employee) –  Roselle, ILJuly 12, 2018
Walgreens is a friendly fast paced job. That requires a lot of work for less money. Working here I met plenty of people.But its the people you work with that can either make it harder or easier to work there.

Dont do it!
Inbound (Current Employee) –  Windsor, WIJuly 12, 2018
Horrible management, constant OT and if you don't finish you usually have to come in on Sat which is your day off to finish the night before. I've worked there for 5 yrs and its gone down hill due to the management especially the IO's.

Future vision
Store Manager/Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Anchorage, AKJuly 12, 2018
Company has big visions for the future. New management locally is a poor leader. Like all companies now they are very tied to their shareholders and not as much for their employees.

Bland
Designated Hitter (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJuly 12, 2018
Honestly it depends on what shift you have and who is there cause it is like any other retail which is ring people products up and sell them. The only time it becomes different is the crew you currently have on shift.

Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Canóvanas Municipio, PRJuly 12, 2018
Una empresa que dedica tiempo a la educaciondel empleado, al momento no hay mucha oportunidad de crecimiento, el balance para la vida personal es mas beneficioso para los puestos de alta gerencia. Es un lugar donde se puede crear una carrera de por vida.

New management changes
Pharmacy Manager (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 12, 2018
Walgreens as a history has been a great company to work for. With upper management changes not sure how secure the company is in the United States. The company offers upcoming technology, but not equipment for store use. Benefits are strong, but cost is increasing.

It is a good company to work with.
Shift Leader (Current Employee) –  Fayetteville, NCJuly 11, 2018
Walgreens is the perfect company to be hired for if you have an aspiration to become a pharmacist or you were working on a business degree. This company has given me opportunities to be promoted, to get benefits, paid time off, retirement, profit sharing, insurance, training classes, paid holidays, and many other benefits.
Pros
Good benefits, Training opportunities, and flexible work schedule.
Cons
If your degree is in anything other than Pharmacy or business they tend to not want to promote you.

Fast Paced but also slow paced
Shift Lead (Current Employee) –  Rock Island, ILJuly 11, 2018
I was a shift lead, management on duty, and you either had way too much to do or very little to do. There really wasn't anything in between. I truly loved by job. I did not however like being blamed for other peoples problems and being told that their failings were my fault.
