Good company with great people, currently looking for another company with more oppurtunities for growth.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), lakeland fl 33811April 18, 2014
Satisfying my customers, new and old, brings joy to me everyday. With some Walgreen's stores being 24 hours, work is constant. This brings challenges because there is never a sense of completion, you always have a new project to move on to. By distributing notes to my reliable co-workers it helps get tasks done efficiently. Being an Assistant Manager – more... has taught me an incredible amount, from inventory to gross profit. My time with the company has steered me in the direction of meeting several dependable Managers that I have been able to grow from because we both share an interest in exceeding our potential. – less

Service Clerk (Former Employee), Omaha, NEApril 18, 2014
Pros: flexibility of hours, people, discount, access to sales
Cons: pay, new sales culture
I had the pleasure of working at Walgreens for more than six years. Great part-time job, but you won't get rich working there. A lot of the managers are great but some are very poor and uncaring or egotistical.

I loved working as a Pharmacy Technician. I took the required training, having no experience and did great. People I worked with were great. I thought this job was going to be my future until they were forced to have to down size.

Staff Pharmacist (Former Employee), Little Falls, NJApril 18, 2014
Work environment was stressful considering it was one of the busier locations but yet fun , great technicians to work with as a team,who provided an excellent customer service as well as great having numerous happy and pleasant customers.
Communicating & building a trust based relationship with pharmacy customers was the best part of my job, I just – more... wish I was given a little better tech help to handle the workload that could have prevented many unnecessary situations which might have compromised customer service
But overall ,It was a joy going to work and making a difference in my community where I have served for over 7 years. – less

cashier, phone consultant (Former Employee), thibodaux LAApril 17, 2014
My experience with Walgreens had been good. Nothing to complain about except not working with me for a new schedule. I worked at night shift and was a good job, but being a mother was hard working at night due to her schooling. Enjoyed my time there.

Good job but not so much for advancement
Shift Lead Manager (Current Employee), Marble Falls, TXApril 17, 2014
The most enjoyable part of the my sift lead is interaction with customers & co-workers in a positive and upbeat mode. I have been a manager over numerous employees for many years.The hardest part of the job is manual labor; unloading a truck and stocking merchandise on high shelves on a ladder. I signed on with the agreement that I would advance fast-track – more... and that has not happened yet. – less

Great place to work when staffed properly
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), MississippiApril 17, 2014
Pros: great perks
Cons: it's retail.
Walgreens Pharmacy is a great place to work for those looking for a career in retail pharmacy. They strive to lead the pack in technology and customer service. That being said, the job is only enjoyable when all of the staff is on the same page.

Cons: short breaks
Work with friendly coworkers, who are goal oriented and make work fun. A typical day at work for me would be answering IC-3's (code for need more cashiers on front end), printing online photo orders through dry lab, maintaining inventory of assigned bay, ordering, and providing customers with a great experience shopping at Walgreen's.
