I worked at Walgreens part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

All technicians have to be certified so you are not working with people who don't know there jobs. Workflow keeps everyone in place allowing the shift to run smoothly.Great benefits, can buy shares in the co, in-store discounts and online. Great pharmacists.

Cons

Shifts are constantly cut. Managers don't stay long because of the workload placed on them. Customers are horrid to the staff, and then are given gifts cards for their hissy fits. Need to higher more technicians for the number of prescriptions. Pharmacy constantly swamped. Be ready to deal with rude doctors and outsourced insurance agents who don't have a clue.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop cutting shifts and add more technicians so the ones you have are not pulling their hair out. Without the extra help lots of mistakes are made making the company look incompetent.

    I worked at Walgreens part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working isn't hard, just restocking, organizing, and cashier work. Oh, and helping customers around the store. You do get a wok out if you work the floor.

    Cons

    Grumpy customers and Confusing coupon descriptions and regulations.
