Works well with your schedule but is very slow in the summer.
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Conroe, TexasJuly 23, 2014
They are great at working well with your schedule and will usually give you all of the days you request off. It does slow down during the summer and if you are not full time you are not guaranteed your hours. You do not automatically get a raise and are not guarenteed you 15 minute breaks.

Don't Do It!
pharmacy tech (Current Employee), TexasJuly 23, 2014
Pros: ok place to work while in school pursuing a real career
Cons: management, lack of value in employees, pay, everything
Pretty horrible place to work. Almost impossible to advance. 20 cent raises per year after great performance evaluations. Recent changes in company has made it ridiculous to work for them. Asking for so much more out of employees but absolutely no more pay. Lowering salary caps. ALWAYS SHORT STAFFED = Stressful environment and angry customers. Eliminating – more... positions. Often encouraged not to take breaks due to being short staffed. Regular checks by higher up positions in company to check for compliance. Chastised for not wanting to work full time yet hours are constantly cut! Speaking to management is futile. So it's be well at Walgreens! Yeah...unless you're an employee. – less

Somewhat productive easy going co-workers.
Photo Technician (Current Employee), Durham, NCJuly 23, 2014
I come into work and ask what the plan is for today. I learned how to be team oriented and working well under pressure. The management is great they genuinely like to help and provide feedback. the hardest and most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the customers. They can rub you the wrong way but for the most part they make working there – more... interesting. – less

Not much good to outway bad. . .
Photo Specialist/Cashier (Former Employee), Dade City, FLJuly 23, 2014
Pros: 401k.
Cons: lots of work for little pay, little help from administration.
The good part is that they start everyone out a little higher than minimum wage. The shifts are all over the place, sometimes finishing at 11pm and starting the next day at 7am. Each typical employee did the job of six different people, including stocking, cashiering, sweeping & mopping the facility, and cleaning the bathrooms and breakroom, but was – more... only paid for the job of one person. Management was horrible because they didn't want to do any work for themselves and told employees to ask for help if needed, but when asked would ask why help was needed and act as though they did not want to help. The store manager didn't even know how to run some of the equipment, like the equipment in the photo lab. I don't know about now, but then there were no dedicated weekends off, so social and family life was almost non-existent. – less

24 hour store that has its busy days
Floater (Current Employee), Austin, TXJuly 22, 2014
Pros: health insurance, dental, and vision
My typical day at work consists of filling the cooler, running the photo lab, having to help cashier when the line gets long, work on resets, help out in the pharmacy when someone calls in or when it gets busy. I have learned how to do everything in the store except the cash part that the managers do. For the most part the management does a good job. – more... Every few months lately we have had a different assistant manager. I enjoy seeing some of the same customers everyday and getting to talk to them. One of the hardest things about what I do is constantly not being able to get certain things done because of a few of my coworkers. One of the managers is constantly changing their mind on what really needs to get done first and assigns new things all the time. – less

Senior Pharmacy Technician Certified (Current Employee), Tacoma, WAJuly 21, 2014
Pros: reimbursement for licensing
Cons: short breaks, vacation/time off pay shifts are not eight hours and hours are frequently being cut
Typical day at work is pretty fast paced. You learn a lot about third party insurances and brand/generic drug names. Management is very cooperative and ready to help out wherever they are needed. Co-workers are easy to get along with and reliable. Hard part of the job is being able to keep your composure with angry costumers. Most enjoyable part of – more... the job is getting the customers what they need. – less

Formerly a great place to work at
Shift Lead (Current Employee), Springfield ILJuly 21, 2014
The management mainly means well, but most of the management titles have been eliminated, so they're waiting for theirs to be as well. Most of the staff make minimum wage and are told they must say and do things a certain way and that "this isn't going away"; then a few months later it changes. This does not make for a stable or productive envirement. – more... I did learn a lot of things over the years, but there seems to very little time to do anything but try to keep your head above water anymore. Enjoyed interacting with most of the employees. – less
