Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee), New York, NYDecember 20, 2014
•A typical day at work involves servicing customer needs and helping be and stay well, organizing and stocking merchandise, handling money, and completing planogram resets

•I have learned how to maintain good customer assistance while multitasking, how to communicate efficiently and effectively, and also why merchandises are stocked they way they are.

•Management makes sure all employees feel comfortable and safe on the job.

•My co-workers help to keep the job interesting and pleasurable and FUN

•The hardest part of the job is making sure all the customer needs are satisfied the best way possible.

•The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing and interacting with new people

Long work hours, little pay
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), New York, NYDecember 10, 2014
hardly got to see my family. The hardest thing about working for ths company is that, corporate doesn't care of your well-being. They're only concern about the customers and the money they bring in at the end of the day.

General Clerk (Former Employee), Manhattan, NYDecember 5, 2014
Pros: worked with a great team.
Cons: short breaks, bi-weekly, you can't take vacation during blackout periods
My day at this job is being on your feet. its a fast pace environment but that's good because it keeps you aware of your surrounding. I always look for extra work to do, if its packing out tots, putting up new seasonal merchandising, facing products,or just restocking the shelves and of course assisting customers with any needs.My co- workers are good some better than most.Most of us work as a team to get the work done and completed.

It was a great company right up until it was purchased by Walgreens.
Accounting Manager (Former Employee), New York, NYNovember 5, 2014
Pros: worked with a great team.
Cons: the team was broken up when the company was aquired.
I worked with a very strong team of financial professionals. Everyone worked together to achieve a common goal. The hardest part of the job was the pressure to meet reporting deadlines. The CFO required perfection in the financial reports. It was not uncommon for him to make changes minutes before the deadline. This required us to develop procedures to handle these issues. It turns out the hardest part of the job was also the best part of the job. The pride derived from successfully achieving a difficult task is priceless.

Highest grossing store in the district
Customer Service Advisor (Current Employee), Jersey City, NJNovember 4, 2014
This location is by far one of the busiest in the entire district. Conveniently situated close to public transit, hordes of customers would walk in and out throughout the day. To operate a store with this many customers takes an amazing team that works relentlessly behind the scenes to ensure the daily operations of the store up to par.

Worst retail store to work at!!!
Cashier (Former Employee), Harlem, NYNovember 2, 2014
Pros: great staff
Cons: short breaks, bi-weekly, you can't take vacation during blackout periods
The worst retail job I ever worked at.. The customers are rude and tough. Duane Reade doesn't protect their employees. They don't care about their employees. Listen, I don't you work in this place. Is the worst place.. Trust me. Once you're in.. You'll see and the discounts sucks... Overwork, less pay
