I work for a Riteaid that recently got bought by Walgreens and I have been working a total of 16 months! I started as a shift supervisor at $12 an hour and was promoted to an assistant manager and was making $14.50 an hour an two weeks ago received another $1.50 raise thru Walgreens so I don’t see them underpaying so far! Riteaid gave me a measly 50 cent raise and many others only got 24 cents from Riteaid so for me to leave I’d have to find a better paying job! I’m on my way to having my own store so I will see what the pay is compared to the responsibilities!! I also think pay is based on where you are located.

The truck situation. Too physical. The merchandise should be put on pallets. Unloading the truck the way we do is absolutely ridiculous. Too physical and touching totes, boxes 3 times, ridiculous. This will be the reason I leave. Pay should be better also. This company expects too much for what they pay.

Not worth it. When need to take a day off due to doctor appointments as I am pregnant and been having some issues they have a fit. No work/life balance and work every weekend. Can find better.

Transit from Rite Aid to awalgreen tye transition isn't smooth. As well as they pay bi-weekly. There isn't any kind of work with in the dc because most inventory had been empty out of the warehouse and we aren't bringing in any new product or shipping anything for another couple months. So most people get tired of doing nothing and asked to volunteer to leave early. Right now it feels like Walgreens is weeding out the hard working employees who want to have things to do verses employees who have no problem doing nothing and getting pay.

Lack of pay, lack of hours, not family oriented like they say.

Would leave because of the pay rate. Would also leave because of the lack of training, the favoritism and back stabbing. No focus, no leadership
