I have been working at Walgreens full-time for less than a year

Pros

They seem to hire the best they can find, and their training is extensive and second to none I've seen.

Cons

The hours can be bad if you don't do swing shifts well, but

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more money to update the training, it's good but dated.

    I have been working at Walgreens part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible hours to work around my school schedule...but mainly based on your pharmacy manager.

    Cons

    Not enough available hours so always understaffed. Store manager wanted what's best for the company and started scheduling us for 4 to 6 hour shifts instead of a full 8 hour shift, which is a waste my time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give us better raises for staying with the company so long. I've worked with this company for 5 years and I just received an offer from a major pbm for 50cents more an hour with plenty of chances to get raises and promotions. They can guarantee full time with 8 hour shifts, two breaks, and many available overtime opportunities.

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

    Pros

    Most efficient workflow in retail pharmacy when adequately staffed; endorsing many key pharmacist initiatives in MTM, screening for disease, and consultations. Training time given and most staff trained & competent with customer focus.

    Cons

    High investor-driven philosophy leading to short-term budgetary decisions that caused layoffs & lost or inconvenienced Rx customers (i.e. loss of Express Scripts in Jan 2012 only to have it back in Sept).
    Decisions not targeted to specific markets. Possible favoritism in store assignments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New initiatives were secondary to maintaining & increasing the patient base in competitive markets as in Ohio. While a difficult decision, too many were adversely affected by layoffs for what was less than a year of a suspended insurance contract.
