Getting a near perfect performance review and receiving a measly 25 cents/hour raise. Being expected to do the same amount of work despite hours being cut company wide. Poor decision making by upper management.

I want to leave and i am looking do to not being paid for the load of work they keep putting on me and im just a photo person. They pay sucks and boy dont get me started on the management. They do 100% nothing but sit in office and play on phone while the store is in chaos . The policy over theft has recently changed and therefore you can walk into Walgreens and basically take whatever you want and we can't say anything to you will be fired and having to take classes on being bias. It seems to be a shady company that when you ask for questions or look for guidance they won't give you an answer it's like they want to not give you an answer so if anything happens because they're Shady they can fire you over it. Oh and they're real big about the employees problem solving for themselves then why do we have a manager why are they even there if we are running the store ourselves. Everything about going to Walgreens don't they're just as bad as Walmart I really work at Walmart again

$25.50 for a certified sr technician that’s the cap . And of course the only way you can get to that amount is years of working with Bad managers who you have to suck up to , to get an awesome evaluation . This company would be awesome if they were true to their policies of 0 retaliation and treat their techs with respect and better pay .. it took me 15 years to get to that amount and when your at a cap ,you get a bonus and if only you get a 3.8 score on your evaluation . The cost of living is going up and you can’t live of that amount and especially if your benefits are bad . I say run , run the opposite direction and get a higher degree . Walgreens looks down at their techs
