Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee), San Francisco, CA – October 11, 2013
As an assistant manager, I oversaw store operations under the store manager and accomplish tasks that the store manager wants done as well as try to reach the quotas set by the district. The level of productivity depends solely on the store manager and the rest of the crew. I've been with really good store managers that know how to get things done and – more... I've been with store managers that does not seem to have a clear understanding of what is going on and what needs to be done. – less
A typical day would be walking into a shift and communicating with co workers and superiors on the days challenges. Assessing the work load and prioritizing what areas need more immediate attention. The Pharmacy manager at the time was awesome in communicating on what needed to be accomplished and would usually allow flexibility in workflow as most – more... all the staff shared in a customer first approach. The hardest part would have been during a rush hour where there are people waiting in store for their prescriptions and we would receive systems issues. I enjoyed being able to help others both internally and externally on a daily basis. I love problem solving and being solutions focused. – less

There is always something new to learn while working at Walgreens. a typical day starts off as i walk in through the door.

From public safety to customer care and – more... invoices to inventory control there was never a dull day. Here you get to know your co-workers and your customers on a first name basis. The hardest part about the job is having to address my co-workers about assignments left undone or unfinished. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to fun the store as you see fit. i enjoyed creating separate task to better improve the store with sales and inventory as well as making it appealing to the customer.

Pros: healthier life choices, discount
Cons: work holidays
A typical day at work depends on the day; I love that when we get to work there is already a plan laid out for us. They let us know what they expect for us to get done so there is never a question of well why wasn't this done. I have learned so much from Walgreen, from handling a cash register to moving on the pharmacy there is so much to gain from – more... being there. I love the people that I work with for the most part we all get along and are always trying to help each other out not only in the work place, but personal life as well. The hardest and the best part of my job is the customers. There are days when I have the best people in the world come in and make my day. Then there are other day when no matter what you do you can't make the person happy. I just try to remember the wonderful customers that make it all worth it. I love what because I work with photo's peoples memories I have people who come in and laugh and tell me all about this photo like I'm apart of the family than there are times when I have to help people make photos for a death. I enjoying helping people above all. – less

I as a shift lead at Walgreens it is my duty to make sure customers are satisfied as well as my team.
