"Bad company to work for. At least at my location. Only working with one other person for most of my shifts. Having to shelf items, check out customers, watch for theft, manage photos orders, refunds, complaints, show people where items are if they can't find it, pick up orders and answer the phone all at once and can NEVER actually get things done. The few times I DO manage to get stuff done the manager likes to give me extra work and laugh about how I will never get it done. Utter crap. It pays more than other places near me but holy hell they really don't want to have at least three people working here at once and it drives me insane. Can't wait to leave."
"I have worked for Walgreens since I was a pharmacy intern in 2013. I have worked with amazing staff but I feel the company does not take care of their employees. Employees work very hard on a daily basis with physics restraints and there has not been any reward or appreciation. I wish they would show more gratitude and support their staff more."
"It's been a great place to work since 2017, though retail is not the best place to maintain a career unless one really desires to. I have learned a great deal in leadership practices and planning, quality traits that I can move on with future career goals."
"Worked almost 3 years and was told because I was late (which they tracked down over months) and was told to terminate my employment without giving me any discipline or write ups. As for me, I have to have a second job and I am continuing my education full time in school and I was doing 10 hour shifts full time. They didn't take anything into consideration and decided because i was late, it was considered "stealing companies time". The policy states if you go over the maximum times you are late, you get write ups or it goes into determination. I never got a single write up or discipline since I worked there and I never met this HR person a single day in my life working there... They also decided to do it during holiday season, I mean 2 days after Christmas, to terminate my employment, which means it will be super difficult to be hired anywhere this time. They also stated they had to do the same to people who even worked there for as long as 10 years. It's a shame a company does this, I would hire someone who is late but knowingly gets the job done rather than someone who is always on time that is behind or doesn't do anything. HR doesn't even bother with your explanations, they are just like "we got you on camera, you were LATE". I totally understand on disciplining or terminating people who don't care, but I legit had explanations and I legit put in effort when I came in to work such as doing overtime, changing my schedule as needed or working faster if I come in. I always worked hard when I was in the building and on the clock even though the job was lacking innovation and quality, I even offered the idea to work from home since about 90% my work is just on the computer, and about 10% is actually dealing with inventory. But, I was shot down the idea, even though I live an hour away from work... All in all, work is not too bad if you are a perfect minded robot working in an industrial machine. No longer how long you work hard or how long your length is"
"Walgreens has provided me plenty of opportunities for learning from being a leader, dealing with stresses of emergency situations, to handling confrontations of upset customers and employees. It also helped me realize through my work in the lab that I really want to work with computers and networking."
"It's very average in most areas including benefits, pay, and work/life balance. Yearly pay increase for technicians is nice, but they are non-existent for pharmacists and many managers. It's easy to stay for a long time, but you will eventually hit a wall once you reach a salary cap. There isn't much room for mobility unless you acquire specific degrees."
"It is a good job for those seeking employment in the pharmaceutical field."
"The pay for the amount of work you do is average. The hours you can get is wonderful but the work load is very heavy. You have to enjoy what you do be ready for a heavy and fast paced job load. The people are great depending on what location you work at but you do have a chance to move around and meet others at different locations, and you also get a feel for how other stores operate and work. If you find yourself working better and loving a different store other than your own and think you would be better off there than your original store, there are ways for you to be able to transfer smoothly to that other location."
"I worked with this company for 6 years including of which 4 were rite aid since it was bought out. The job is simply not for me because I have my degree and was looking to get out for about 4 years now."
"I will reveal the info about my previous client in interview"
"Great new position that is focused around being a partner to the store team and preventing comprehensive loss"
"I have worked for Walgreens for three years. The job is multitasking and fast-paced. The customer is the center of the business, so customer skills are mandatory to perform the job. Overall, each store has a unique culture and its quirks which you won't know until to work there."
"I worked at Walgreens Pharmacy from October 2017 to August 2020, and up until the COVID Pandemic taking a toll on hours and health of employees, Walgreens is still one of the best jobs I have had. I worked as a pharmacy technician, and my coworkers were all amazing."
"Walgreens is a very honorable place of work full of patience, understanding, and good vibes. There is work for every type of person, full of plenty of opportunities for growth and stability. Staying well at Walgreens is so easy to do with the great work environment they provide!"
"Good company providing team skills"
