HEAD OF BEAUTY ADVISOR (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVJuly 10, 2014
Pros: calming environment
Cons: healthcare
Cashier duties, stocked shelves, put products on display, and assisted customers. I learned how much customers appreciate your help. My managers were very kind and were happy to assist me with any questions. My co-workers were very nice and I trained subordinates who worked under me. The hardest part of the job was to work back to back shifts when a – more... co-worker would call in sick. The most enjoyable part of the job was the peaceful environment that I worked under. – less

Customer service. "To Head Photo (Former Employee), Birmingham, ALJuly 10, 2014
Pros: good customers
Cons: typical corporate work rules like saying "be well" as each customer departed.
I focused mainly on the photo dept but did merchandising, stocking, etc. I excelled in customer projects. My most memorable was spending two hours on the phone with a lady from Oregon who needed a collage of photos for a funeral in our area. She was so pleased with my work that she wrote a letter of commendation to corporate.

Administrator (Former Employee), Mount Prospect, ILJuly 9, 2014
Pros: flexible, very suportive enviroment, worked as a team
Cons: required overtime to ensure projects were finished
On a daily basis you would work with UPS by shipping an receiving, also pick up calls in regards to problems with the stores or guiding techs in any questions they may including payroll, store location, estimated time of arrival for parts. Management was awesome very flexible and we worked as a team, I learned how to use Lotus Notes, Word, Excel, Remedy, – more... also did a little bit of technical repairs. The hardest part of my job was keeping items organized since many people grabbed items and didn't put them back. The most enjoyable part was working with Management they give me a list of things to do and allowed me to pace and finish these. – less

A company that I was able to grow-up with.
Head Photo Specialist (Former Employee), Portland, ORJuly 9, 2014
Pros: benefits, being comfortable with my position and knowledge of the company.
Cons: no advancement in the photot department.
I had been with Walgreen's for 7 years and during my time there I had worn many hats. I started out as a front end cashier, worked in the cosmetics department before settling into the photo department where I really found my niche. Customer service was the biggest priority where I excelled at helping customers find what they were looking for either – more... in the store or online. I performed cash handling, stocking the shelves and in the warehouse, I ordered for my department (snacks, groceries and drinks), I would train new employees on how to use the photo lab equipment, I would also instruct others on how to work the new machines that would arrive from time to time. As the Head Photo Tech, it was my job to maintain the machines once a month, make sure the chemicals were drained and replaced, fix any problems that occurred in the printer and general cleaning of the lab. I feel that during my time with Walgreen's I became a more confident woman who knew what I wanted and that I was able to go out and work for it. The last year I worked for Walgreen's, I was going to school. I worked there full-time and attending class part-time. I felt that if I was able to work that hard at two jobs, then there was nothing stopping me from moving forward into a bright new career. – less

Fast Paced pharmacy with very high volume, always busy and always moving. I love a challenging environment.
Certified Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), American Canyon, CAJuly 8, 2014
I learned so many valuable skills in this position. A typical day would include everything from worker's comp claims, TAR completions to filling 200 or more prescriptions daily, all while answering phones. Walgreen's pharmacy was a very fast paced environment and multitasking is essential to the workplace here. Here I learned a lot about insurances, – more... formularies, Medicare, Medi-Cal, and a lot of the clerical duties that come with being a PT, including inventory maintenance.

My co-workers wee always very easy to work with and well trained making the work flow go smoothly. Management was always encouraging. They were always available and willing to step in when needed. They were nothing short of supportive.

I enjoy working in a pharmacy setting because I love to help people. I enjoy the fast paced work environment and the challenge of multitasking perfectly without error. – less

Professional business that allows each employee to apply their own creative niche to benefit the company's success
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), St. Louis, MOJuly 7, 2014
Pros: i have developed a professional relationship with my coworkers
Cons: when coworkers are being lazy
Working for Walgreens has enhanced my customer service skills. I am able to interact with people and connect with them in numerous ways such as creating a friendship, adding loyalty, and showing appreciation for their personality that is beneficial for me and Walgreens. There is always something new I learn at my job. The store manager is willing to – more... teach each employee in their own level of understanding to conduct his assigned task. My coworkers are fun to work with and we are able to express our feelings about situations that may occur, good or questionable. The store manager gave me an opportunity to become a manager internship when I was a senior in college. I learned how the company operates beyond being a customer service representative. He taught me about payroll, schedule formation, business goals, assigned tasks given by managers and how they must be accomplished in a given time period, and how a manager is the supervisor of all store operations. – less

Awesome experience
Pharmacy Technician( Customer service rep) (Former Employee), Springfield, ILJuly 7, 2014
Pros: discount on walgreens items and pharmacy closes at 6pm on sundays.
Cons: low pay, minimal hours
The pharmacy was an awesome learning experience. Other than the poor leadership exhibited by one of the newer pharmacist, the job was a great learning experience. The upper management were insightful and encouraging. I enjoyed working for this company. I only left because of how I was being treated by one younger pharmacist. I should have stood my ground – more... and stuck it out! – less
