Reasonably casual workplace
Listed as a photo specialist (Current Employee), Mobile, ALAugust 14, 2014
Pros: malleable work schedule.
Cons: very low chance of advancement.
Typically week days are busy, weekends are more casual. Interacting with customers and various types of people proves to be the most enjoyable part of the job. Also working at Walgreens has taught me a great deal about the meaning of customer service and satisfaction.

Shift Leader (Former Employee), Saint Paul, MNAugust 13, 2014
A typical day at walgreens can be handful. My last position is SFL [Shift Leader] which is to open and close the store, cash handling, delicate out task[s] to employees, etc. which that leads to what I have learned to operate the store with other managers and treat customer the way how you wanted to be treated when you go to any retail stores. Co-workers – more... are very good and always seems to be on top of things and get task done on time. Employees always help others if they're done with their task and if there isn't any.

The hardest part of the job is to maintain the store in the most cleanest way while providing service to the customer, stay on top of all tasks including the ones that are delicate out to employees and handle other things.
But the most enjoyable part of the job is connecting with walgreen's customers and help them in any possible way you can. Customers always put a smile on your face rather if you have a bad day or not.

Management are always helpful and they want to make sure you are learning what your suppose to. – less

Satisfactory
Certified Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Hampstead, NCAugust 13, 2014
Co-workers are friendly, helpful, and easy to get along with. They are pretty much like family. Its a very busy place, so there is always something to do. I learn something new everyday. What makes the job difficult is having faulty equipment, and not having the best ordering system. This results in unhappy customers in the end. Overall, it is a satisfactory – more... job. – less

Okay to work for I guess...
Service Clerk (Current Employee), Little Falls, NJAugust 13, 2014
Pros: employee discount
Cons: short breaks, no healthcare options, low pay
I worked a retail position. People say customers are the worst part of retail, given that the area is very good. I've never been one who has big problems with customers. My main problem was advancement: I had nowhere to go, if I try my best I am a service clerk, so its a good job to get your feet wet with working, but not a good job for a meaningful – more... career with the skills I have. (I am more of a technical guy so my technical side never gets a chance to shine when there's no software to develop.) – less

Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAAugust 13, 2014
Pharmacy is always changing every patient has different needs, so one must learn to adjust quickly and find the right tools to help everyone get their prescriptions in a timely manner. Management at times could make things interesting however, for the most part is easy going. The employees in a pharmacy must work as a team, otherwise, it can be a lot – more... confusion and unhappy customers. Hardest part of the job is when a medication is needed by someone and their insurance does not cover it, and many times that medication is rather expensive and patients are unable to pay for it. The most enjoyable part is seeing patients walk out with smile on their faces, knowing we have help them. – less

Great coworkers but devastating hour cuts really hurt the store
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Bloomington, ILAugust 13, 2014
Pros: great coworkers and management. management tries to have your back as much as possible.
Cons: hour cuts were crippling. all stores got hours cut, some much worse then others.
When I initially started hours were plentiful and it was truly a great place to work. My coworkers and management were fantastic. Then the hour cuts came and pretty much ruined the store. We lost a lot of wonderful people due to the cuts. All our senior techs burnout and it was just a sad situation. The promise of more hours was constant but never came.

Overall – more... the work environment was great here. I quickly grew to really value all my coworkers and made friends with many. I did work at
a few other stores to pick up hours and the environment was the same there, great coworkers and managers. – less
