Head Photo Technician (Former Employee) – Lumberton, TX – September 21, 2017
Greeting the customers of Walgreens was always so exciting. Hearing different life stories, and giving your feedback is often helpful for some who are just in need of a listening ear. Management was wonderful, I learned so much about myself in the sense that I started as a very shy person but left with enough confidence to talk to almost anyone.
Shift Lead (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – September 21, 2017
Didn't take long for me to advance in positions, not really busy until the holidays. Occasionally have just because breakfast/lunch for appreciation, it gets so slow that employees start to click up in groups instead of being friendly all around.
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.
