Good Benefits, Bad Staffing
Pharmacy Technician/Customer Service Rep (Current Employee), Sumiton, ALJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: mainly, it was a positive and friendly environment.
Cons: workers who broke rules rarely got reprimanded.
I adored my job for the first two years, the past few months have changed a bit since our old manager quit and a new one was hired. The difference between his and her personalities are so vast and they had polar opposite ways of running the pharmacy. The staff has become more laid back and less eager to do what needs to be done.
Though expensive, the insurance at Walgreens is incredible, most prescriptions are covered up to 80%.

Work Day Summary
Administration/ Supply Chain Manager (Current Employee), Jupiter, FLJanuary 29, 2015
There really is no typical day at work; we need to adapt to whatever the outbound processing volume is. I have learned a great deal and have had a great time. I really like the folks I had a chance to work with!
The hardest part of the job is that there is no continuity with your position; managers are rotated to different areas/shifts.

Meet get people, employees and customers.
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee), Memphis, TNJanuary 29, 2015
My day usually starts by greeting all the members of the staff. Then we hold a five to ten meeting going over the details of the sales reports from the previous day and objectives set for the current day.
I've learned how to navigate though all the different personalities and work successfully as a team.
I've been very lucking to have work with some of the greatest hard working and supportive co-workers, that I could have ever worked with.
The most enjoyable part of my job is that I get to meet and talk with all kind of different people/customers.

Customer Service (Former Employee), Austin, TXJanuary 28, 2015
A typical work day here was delivering product. I learned how to drive a small delivery truck and how to receive in food. Management was good. My co workers were great. The hardest part was keeping product in stock. The most enjoyable part of this job was working the Austin City Limit festival.

Cashier (Former Employee), Carencro, LaJanuary 28, 2015
Pros: great atmosphere
Cons: benefits
Co-workers were friendly and managers were easily approachable when I had questions or needed help. The hardest part of the job was managing the restocking of shelves while had customers needing to check out. Sometimes my co-worker was unreachable. Walgreens was willing to work around my school schedule and willing to work with me when it came to my personal appointments like doctor appointments or family issues.

general manager in saginaw mich on e genesee needs to be fired
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Saginaw, MIJanuary 28, 2015
Pros: employee personalities
Cons: managers think you steal before you walk thru the store
The pharmacy was absolutely wonderful as a whole and yes there are plenty of stressful situations but either you adapt and move on or you get left behind and do not belong in that environment. If you do what your taught to do and ask questions until you feel comfortable, there will be no problems. Your not going to get along with everybody, which is fine.
