If you are a c.s.a. dont expect much of a raise. It is usually between 15 to 25 cents a year. Management will usually rate you at a 3 or lower to keep your raise down. In the 8 years I have been there I have never seen anyone get a 4 or higher on their review.

So they do a yearly review first they let you do your own evaluation. And then they really evaluate you. They review what they consider your evaluation is and then grade you from 1 to 4 anything under 3 is no raise. I found that out the hard way.

Performance pay increases do not apply in our store because the minimum wage increase in January absorbs the increase you earn in your evaluation. So , for the next few years until we get to 12 dollars per hour i will not recieve my 40 cents per hour on top of the minimum wage because Walgreens says its not their company who initiated the pay increase , it was the government. I proceeded to tell corporate they are shady. For the next few years people hired off the street will earn exactly what i earn after years if experience based in minimum wage increases. So ... hooray to all of you who have 50 pay increases ... in Colorado ... they suck!!!

Since I started these are the pay rates I’ve had. I’m supposed to be receiving another one soon, I’ll update when I do.
Update:
Aug. 2012: $10.50 (tech)
Aug. 2013: $11:50 (became certified)
May 2014: $13.75 (Sr. Tech & raise)
Apr. 2015: $15.75 (raise)
Apr. 2017: $17.25 (raise)
Nov. 2018: $18.11 (raise)

Also, I have never received a bonus for being a sr. Tech but I’ve only scored over a 4.0 once....I feel I should’ve gotten it more, but Walgreens upper management frowns upon managers giving their techs (aka best assets) above a 4.0
