SHIFT MANAGER (Current Employee) – Ashburn, VA – June 8, 2017
A typical day includes opening the store 30 minutes before open time, counting the money for each drawer, balancing the cash report from the night before and making sure no money is missing. duties include following daily lists that have resets (resetting a part of the store), merchandising etc etc
While working at walgreens we practice workflow. We have many responsibilites while handling medications.I have a great group of people i work with and enjoy my job. I am looking for something that interest me.
A typical day at work was normally fun and busy. I learned to manage a small group of employees. Management was pretty good. We had a good work environment. Everyone normally worked as a team. There really was not a hard part of this job. I loved my customers and made friends with lots of them. I had a good relationship with all my employees also.
I work at the Walgreens Specialty Retail Supoort Center and I do not recommend anyone to work here for longer than 1-2 yrs. If you have a professional background do not count on advancement because once you become an IV there is no where else to go. work/life balance, vacations are denied for when you need them and special execptions have to be consulted within management. Mandoatory OT is forced in your schedule and recognition is with cards and pins. Grp Sups do not supervise anything and do not go above and beyond for you. Metrics do not work and still get repremanded for stupidities. There is is no consistency and everything is minimizing. Stores are better but the pay is way lower.

I really enjoy my job and my co workers, it's a great place to work. There are times where it's stressful, but it gets better and the people you work with will help you through it all. It isn't boring or hard.

A Day a Walgreens is is full of surprises. One day you deal with alot of customers and other days you may not. Comusters will come in sometimes in the best mood and other times is the worst. You as an employee have to mantain your composure and try to make the customer happy as much possible as you can. CUSTOMERS ARE ALWAYS RIGHT, no matter what a satisfied customer is happy customer.
Photo Specialist (Former Employee) – Mesa, AZ – July 23, 2017
The only thing I didn't like was the fact that I was deemed unreliable after ending up in the hospital for double pneumonia during the summer from working in the cooler and freezer for so many hours. It is required that you work any hours they need, and there is no regular or posted schedule. Otherwise I really enjoyed the job. I would work it again if I ever just need additional income.
Employee discount, will work with school schedule
no pre-set schedule, often did not known until day before when i would be working.
Not a fun place to work they where ore interested in getting people in the seats
