Pharmacy Technician/Team Lead (Current Employee), Natchez, MSAugust 30, 2014
Pros: heath insurance
Cons: breaks
I've been with Walgreens for 8yrs and I must say it has had its good and bad. The company has made some changes that I don't agree with but I have enjoyed my years here. A normal day is busy with customers and trying to get task done. Most days its challenging because it seems like you don't get much done. Over all I like what I do, I enjoy meeting – more... new people and helping people stay well. – less

Great Benefits with Excellent Customer Care
Sales Associate (Current Employee), St. Louis, MOAugust 30, 2014
- Greeting, organizing, upkeep suggestive sales, and dusting.
- I learned patience and knowledge of the store to accurately answer customer' questions and concerns.
- Management can get hectic. Schedules are always put up last minute and gets your services last minute also, but makes customers a first priority.
- Co-workers are always very hard working. – more... We all work as a team to get everything done on time plus manager's tasks for us.
- Warehouse Day. Truck loads of products are expected to be put up by the end of the night while keeping up excellent customer care.
- Seeing customers satisfied and catching up with regulars. – less

Interesting place to work
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FloridaAugust 30, 2014
Pros: there is a coffee maker. managers are friendly
Cons: someone has to die for you to get promoted/ move up in the company.
A typical day at work is dealing with customers on the phone and inn person. I learned that while you can't make everyone happy, it helps to have a positive attitude when you first walk in, or your entire shift is shot. The management was very courteous and friendly with a good sense of humor, and you feel like you can actually tell them stuff. However, – more... they can also be very rude. The hardest part of the job was meeting all of the requirements of the store manager. There were lists upon lists of things to do, and not enough time in any day to do them. You also don't get paid enough to deal with some of the things that you have to. The most enjoyable part of the job was walking in knowing that I got to work with people I considered to be my friends, my family. It was a very important three years for me. – less

Great Place to work
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee), Woodland, CAAugust 30, 2014
Pros: enjoyed the work environment
worked a full 8hrs each day but depended on how high and low the volume was sometimes if we had a low volume they would volunteer for early outs. The important things I learned was how to manage my own work area and the skills that I gained from it. My co-workers were awesome very easy to get along with and work with. The hardest part of the job was – more... possibly when we had a very big volume and the tags we get were sometimes very big that it would take about 3 to 5 hours to complete depending on how much we got. Id say the most enjoyable part of this job was the intensity in the work environment the challenges were always fun and working on a line that required 2 people to finish it was awesome. – less

Productive
Photo Specialist (Current Employee), Springfield, ILAugust 30, 2014
Cons: the shift hours are terrible
A typical day of work at Walgreen's would be starting off stocking the items that need to be refilled from previous day. I would cover each department's fifteen minute and thirty minute breaks throughout the day. I may have to pull inner store items, so that they could be delivered to other Walgreen's location. Some days I have to do resets and revisions – more... to different areas in the store. I have to multitask everyday. If I am working on something, I may have to stop several times to help a customer. Once a week I have to complete inventory counts and order items that are out in my assigned area. I get along with all of my co-workers including the management staff. I've learned to have more patience when dealing with consumers that are irate. I love working with the customers. They are the reason that I enjoy my job. It makes me happy to know that many of our customers appreciate that fact that I still work for Walgreen's. – less

Fun place to work
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Albany, NYAugust 29, 2014
Pros: not bad for part-timers
Cons: paychecks are terrible
No matter where you work or what position you're in, if you're in retail you will NEVER get any respect from customers. As an hourly manager, I feel respected by both the salaried managers and clerks in my store. The pharmacy employees, especially the pharmacists, have no respect for anyone in the front store. They treat us like we're beneath them.

Managing my employees at a retail store
EXA Manager (Former Employee), Wilsonville, ORAugust 29, 2014
Pros: loves working with people and working hard all day.
Cons: short breaks, and lunches
Putting all cash registers in all tills, counting out the safe and making sure everything balances. Constructing a plan for all employees in each department to get merchandise filled in all departments done on a daily basis. To manage all sales and to assist in the pharmacy when they get backed up.
Working with all employees on a daily basis was fulfilling – more... and rewarding.
The hardest part of the job was unloading the trucks. – less

I build my first work life family there. It was a great part of my life!
Shift leader (Former Employee), San Bernardino, CAAugust 29, 2014
Pros: great staff and an amazing learning experience and growth!
Cons: i couldn't continue school while working there
A typical day of work consisted of me opening the store on my own, counting the safe and bringing out the registers to prepare for opening. I loved writing out the task that needed to be completed and working a long side with my team to complete each task diligently and proficiently. I learned a lot there! I learned about how to take in inventory how – more... to order inventory and how to keep track of our inventory. I learned the value of products and how to sell them at a price that will make us profit and still be appealing to the customer needs. My co-workers were great we always worked as a team and at the same pace because we all had the same goal in mind. The hardest part of the job was the area it was in. San Bernardino has earned a bad reputation and we were located somewhat in the middle of all of it so we constantly had thieves we chased out being threatening to us and our safety. The most enjoyable part of the job was building a strong bond in a work area where it was a second home to us and we enjoyed working. – less

Excellent Work Experience
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Harlingen, TXAugust 28, 2014
When I worked at Walgreens Pharmacy, as soon as I clocked in, I began my main priority of taking care of the customers. I also helped maintain proper storage and security for drugs, maintaining patient profiles, cleaning equipment and work areas, referring any questions regarding prescriptions, drug information, or health matters to a pharmacist, performing – more... retail or mail-order pharmacy duties such as receiving, verifying and preparing prescriptions prior to checking by a pharmacist. I got along very well with my co-workers and helped anyone who was in need of extra help all the while still keeping my full attention on the customers. The hardest park of my job as a pharmacy technician was the multi-tasking but it wasn't something new to me, I tend to work well under pressure. What I enjoyed the most about working in the pharmacy was being able to help customers in need of getting their medication as fast and as efficient as possible, as well as wishing them to get well and have a wonderful day. – less
