Pros: The jobs, co workers, environment, management
Cons: Point System
I LOVED this job! Loved the company. I unfortunately was in a horrible car accident and had to leave my position. I was only able to be there just under a year - but I loved every moment of my job. I was praised often, I felt I had the ability to create my own job and do what I wanted with it - which was validating. I never felt micro managed, I always felt HRs doors were open, the COO was approachable and so kind. The managers were all wonderful, enthusiastic, encouraging people to work for. We had a blast as a team. Its too bad the MN Distribution center had to close. There is a great future with Walgreens. I heard that a lot of people that were part of the employee buy in had Millions in their stocks. They have very decent pay, great benefits, and good retirement options. There is also lots of room for growth and career development.
The one thing I will say is they work off of the point system and once you hit so many points you are canned, regardless of all the other areas you excel in. If you are 1 minute late, literally, its a point. And its not on a rolling year or anything. I watched a lot of really great employees get let go based on this, while other slackers remained, all because they could clock in on time. (And MN weather was not excuse for being late).
