Horrible management. Walgreens is a joke. Expect low wages and pathetic raises while they expect you to give 110%. They constantly cut hours. If you want something that pays $9 an hr then go for it.

Poor pay, poor management and the constant reduction of hours the store gets. I have been with the company for five years and my pay has only gone up by $0.99, meanwhile thanks to the company cutting hours my work load has at least quadrupled.

Very low pay and considering the amount they make from insurance companies and overcharging customers (like 4 dollars for 1 bottle of gatorage, or "2 for 5" is ridiculous when you can buy them at the DOLLAR STORE) there should be absolutely no excuse to keep pay so low, in fact the management frequently complains that it's hard to keep up with the minimum wage.

I will quit one because of such low wages. You NEVER get a break. Plus I HATE working nights. I was told I would have to work 1-2 a week but I've worked 4 nights a week since I started. So between the low wages that they act like are so great and horrible night shifts I am done. They don't pay an affordable wage for living and they couldn't live off $9 an hour so why so they expect their employees to live that way?

I have been working for walgreens as a shift lead for 3 going on 4 years next month. i was hired before the rite aid and boots mergers and before that happened it was a very nice and pleasant place to work showing very strong prospects for a career. However once we merged with boots everything went down hill. many factors that have lead me to search else where but the main reason is that before the merger i was promised a promotion to Assistant Manager Trainee however once boots took over they redid the employment structure. In doing this they eliminated many positions above the one i am currently in so of course all of those who didnt get the new position that they wanted were able to pick weather or not they wanted to step down and fill the new asmt position limiting newer employees from having their chance at promotion because they were being filled by the ones who are stepping down. THAT WAS 2 YEARS ago. I have been constantly asking the store manager if he thinks that i am qualified and he said that "you are already doing asm quality work and that the next round of promotions are coming soon." They never did so i asked the district manager when he thought the next round of promotions are coming and he said." as of right now we have too many asm and asmt in the district." none of the current assistant managers(asm) want to get promoted because a store managers role in the company isnt what it used to be. store managers are now being treated event planners for community events, finding businesses for flu shot clincs(where pharmacists go to their business and administer shots to their employees), and they do not do run the store anymore like they did in the past. However being the store manager they get the punishment for not making goals even tho they had no part of even attempting it. Thats why no asm wants to take the store manager job. So in essentially the only wat to get promoted at walgreens is to wait for someone to retire, quit, or die because otherwise "We have too many."
