Senior Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK 73170 – May 22, 2017
The position of Pharmacy Tech with Walgreens is not appreciated. If you are not "in" then you are out. Job security - there is none, Job advancement - there is none, Raises for time in position and seniority - forget it.
Walgreens sells you that is for sure but I wouldn't recommend working there. There is favoritism in who is promoted and I was fired due to absences because I was pregnant ! Definitely NOT the corner of HAPPY AND HEALTHY.
Great place for a first job, but it doesn't last long
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee) – Turlock, CA – May 22, 2017
This is a great place for a first job, or a part-time job if you have other jobs as well. Each location differs, but for the most part the employees are underpaid, overworked, and underappreciated. The management at several stores needs some major revamping, yet most respectable and educated managers would not be likely to work here in the first place. Make sure you know your rights in the workplace and keep an eye on your paycheck to make sure there are no discrepancies. Overall, this job is at the bottom of the totem pole, and many job positions are being eliminated from Walgreens Company, forcing many long term employees to be demoted. Not the best way to handle things, Walgreens!
Pharmacy Technician (Float) (Former Employee) – Arden Hills, MN – May 22, 2017
I loved working at Walgreens as a pharmacy technician; however, when I moved to a different apartment they promised to transfer me to a Walgreens closer to my new apartment. After said promise, they never transferred me or got back to me about a job period, so I had to quite.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 22, 2017
Used to be a great company to work for and felt family orientated, Field management kept changing, thus changing expectations and goals. Payroll budgets kept decreasing despite increase in sales causing management to carry out tasks including all physical work. Used to be able to merchandise freely to satisfy customer needs but company set merchandising standards despite not making sense for the demographic.
employee benefits and pto depending on years of service
always changing goals and expectations. continuously decreasing payroll budgets.

Day to Day as a beauty consultant with Walgreens is a good a pace on than it can be slow. This something new that the company has where get the everyday drug store cosmetics buyers to feel comfortable with something they see every day at other stores. pushing new lines of make up. i enjoy meeting new people and helping people that walking into my cosmetic department.

Every store is different based on the store manager you have. The shift leads also play a role in how the environment is in the store. A good working and helping team is key to good customer service while getting projects done.
Photo Specialist (Former Employee) – Effingham, IL – May 22, 2017
The management and those I worked with were great to be around, but the environment was not fast pace enough for me... I would often stand around and not have anything to do, which is not something i prefer when I am working. It was not worth the minimum wage pay.
Manager (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 22, 2017
I loved working for Walgreens it was a great experience. I had an amazing time working there with all of my co-workers. My managers were amazing and very helpful in molding me to become the best that I can be.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Freeport, NY – May 22, 2017
Employees are not recognized for good work. Hard workers go unnoticed and lazy people are promoted. I believe it would be better to switch workers at the main register mid shift. Standing at the main register for long periods at a time put a huge strain on the back. So if you could look into switching main cashiers mid sift that would be nice.
walgreeens is good but has it own internal problems
Certified and Registered Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – May 21, 2017
I like the patient but some of them can be very rude. I anticipate to go to work each time because the work in itself is not difficult. the counting of pills and the settling of insurances adjudication
Workers are usually helpful and nice to make your job easier
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Bolingbrook, IL – May 21, 2017
I been with walgreens for 4 years and I like I can work any Walgreens I want and I like the breaks and my coworkers are helpful when I have questions or need help. But I really dislike getting blamed for patients co-pays and trying to explain everytime it's their insurance not my choice and insurance companies complicate the job more than anything.
