Great place to work, but little advancement in the pharmacy
Senior Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Las Cruces, NM – September 21, 2017
Senior Pharmacy technicians cannot advance unless you do a "side-step" to SFL and train in the front of the store for management. They hire cashiers and eventually train as certified techs from within. (Good cashiers become "Designated Hitters" in the pharmacy. We are always trying to train cashiers in pharmacy without the hours to ensure appropriate procedures are followed from the start.) Close knit team.
Alot of employee perks (medical, 401k, discounts)
Difficult to do everything the company expects all the time. Some aspect must suffer.
A lot of the times it was fast pace you always had something to do
Cashier (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – September 20, 2017
On a typical workday you would have to go back and forth between your Isles, and customers and ensuring the customers found everything they needed. I learned how to manage my time to get my work done. the hardest part of the job was probably the resets it takes a lot of time to do. The thing I like about my job is that I got to meet different people and see how interesting they can be
You get a discount on the anything you purchase except for dairy products or alcohol
Pharmacist Floater and Pharmacist Intern (Current Employee) – Delray Beach, FL – September 20, 2017
Walgreens is always innovative. However they like to keep the staff very lean and this creates a ton of stress. The need for this impossible workload s due to poor decision making from corporate that causes the company to lose money.
Customer Service position, if you were willing to work hard you could advance.
Customer Service -Team Lead (Former Employee) – Warrenton, OR – September 20, 2017
I started out part time as a cashier and worked to learn more and take on more responsibilities. As a company/store they were willing to train you in other responsibilities if you showed interest. I learned photo department, resets and inventory and then was promoted to a opening and closing position. Your direction is up to the employee.
Communication line is open and available to all employees
Sometimes they would "coddle"employees that perhaps should of been dismissed.
I enjoyed helping the patients and becoming more familiar with them.The company is always coming up with strategies to improve the company, when all the need to figure out is how to get more hours to assist the patients,
Sales Clerk (Former Employee) – Pompano Beach, FL – September 20, 2017
One of the most physically demanding jobs I've had. With 3 men on payroll out of 27 employees, we were delegated with stocking the store and working on truck days. I wouldn't recommend this job at minimum wage.
PICKER AND STOCKER (Former Employee) – Perrysburg, OH – September 19, 2017
if you work hard they will work you even harder. Management has their favorites. I love stocking but they were making me work too many lines that was not allowed. Loved the fast pace and work flow. HR was not very helpful through any medical emergencies. No advancement. Great pay and great healthcare benefits.
Distribution Center Asset Protection Manager (Former Employee) – Windsor, CT – September 19, 2017
Typical work day started at 6 AM and stopped about 7 PM. I learned a lot about the products and procedures. The most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction with DC personnel. Being able to help them to be safe and secure while doing their jobs allowed them to work at a fast pace to get the commodities in the right bin to be trucked out to the store.
General Laborer (Current Employee) – Windsor, WI – September 19, 2017
Since our warehouse wide schedule change last year most departments can not finish the daily work load in a normal shift leading to lots of overtime and having to come in on days off to help. Lots of people have quit leading to more stress in the building and even longer hours. Management doesn't know how to fix the problem and instead most times they make it worse. Also your start times change on a days notice making it hard for anyone with kids to plan for daycare.
LEAP Management Internship (Former Employee) – Franklin, MA – September 19, 2017
It was a great place to intern. I learned a lot on how to manage employees while running and managing a business/store. Management was great at the location I interned and let me know I had what it takes to manage in the near future.
Store Team Lead (Former Employee) – Clifton, NJ – September 19, 2017
I worked here a long time ago and it was a time that they had taken the different positions and put them into one. I was a supervisor/key holder and in charge of inventory which was difficult to juggle
