Head Photo Specialist (Former Employee), Garner, NCAugust 25, 2014
I liked that we had return customers whom you got to know and were able to take care of their needs that's why they returned. There is always a co-worker around the corner to help if needed. The best thing about the job is that there was always something to keep you busy.

Several positions Lots of room to grow
Pharmacy Technician / Executive Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Phoenix AZAugust 25, 2014
I held many positions at Walgreens. I had 9 years as an assistant manager and had my pharmacy technicians license also allowing me to help out any position that was needed. I was able to be helpful to the customers whenever they needed assistance making this a very fullfilling place to work. I also spent a few yesrs working in their mail order facility – more... transcribing prescriptiions as well as filling prescriptions. – less

Great place to work
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Durham, NCAugust 25, 2014
Pros: advancement
Cons: manpower
With retail in general it's hard finding the balance between family and work because the hours are all over the place. It's ideal for a single person that has no children.

Excellent company for advancement
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Amsterdam, NYAugust 25, 2014
Pros: growth in the company, multiple training tools available, reasonable insurance costs
Cons: no set schedule
I worked in many stores during my career with Walgreens. I met and developed lasting relationships with great people.
The best part of my days was the ability to work alongside my employees and train, coach and develope them to ensure the direction of the company was being followed.
The hardest part was working under a manager that was doing and directing – more... things be done in ways that I, in all the other stores I had been in, had not been doing and were not Walgreens ways. This created tension and I had to work hard to keep a good attitude and continue to grow the employees in the direction of this manager. Overall, I enjoyed learning and advancing in Walgreens and continue to recommend this company. You can come in as a cashier and work your way up to corporate positions, if that is your desire. – less

Hard work
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Brookly, NYAugust 25, 2014
Pros: free lunch and gift card when employee of the month.
Cons: short breaks, long lines, rude customers at times, maintaining ecc.
Usually a main cashier holds a dominant position in the store. A main cashier would have to keep a watch for the front end of the store as well as provide customer care.Other employees working on the floor makes sure the items in the store are faced and stocked in the right location; while providing customer care.

Customer Service Advisor (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLAugust 23, 2014
Pros: discount, 401k plans, long breaks
Cons: occasional rude customers
A typical day at work, for the most part, includes constant work. This work is not just busy work, it includes tasks that are vital to the up-keeping of the store & the customers' happiness. I've learned how to work a Telxon and of course, how to better deal with customers. My store manager has let me know since the beginning that he was always here – more... to teach me anything I wanted to know, and listen if I ever needed to talk. The hardest part of the job is finding a balance. If you're like me, that isn't too hard. But if you've never dealt with customers & having a big work load, this could be a challenge in the beginning. I mainly enjoy just staying busy throuhgout the day & laughing with and enjoying my coworkers. – less

Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Clayton, NCAugust 22, 2014
my typical day working at Walgreen's consists of me clocking in on time, filling and typing prescriptions, updating and adding insurances to patients profiles, registering patients with walgreens pharmacy. the part about this job that i enjoy most is knowing that I can put a smile on someone's face, and make them happy makes me happy.

Walgreens Lead Cashier & Customer Service (Current Employee), Rohnert Park, CAAugust 20, 2014
Pros: employee discounts on all products in the store.
I really enjoy interacting with the customers who come into the store and being part of a team whose goal is to help others maintain a healthy lifestyle.
One of the hardest thing is dealing with customers who steal products fromm the store.
