  • Schedule was horrible, pay was horrible, the way customers treated workers was horrible. So, in case you can't tell, you leave because it's horrible.

  • When I go to leave Walgreens it is because the managers do not solve problems. They shift around shifts so the problems just aren't visible.

    The pay is awful and you can get better wages in my area in starting jobs in similar type of retail, and the raises do not keep up with inflation.

    There's VERY little front end support. You're expected to buy your pants, and shirts, while they give the Pharmacy entire uniforms.

    There's also very little understanding of differentiating morals from upper management. If you do not want to sell credit cards, you will get told too bad, you have to sell credit cards.

  • Better opportunity

  • My reason for leaving Walgreens would be the poor management and lack of communication between the higher ups and the people who work in store. Central fill has also turned Walgreens down hill as well making my job as a technician much more difficult than it used to be.

  • Poor management and support for team members with disabilities. If you have a disability of any sort, you’ll be lucky to keep your job. Even more so to get actual help that you need without being treated poorly by other staff members.

  • They cut hours and don't give enough hours to hard working employees who show up to all there shifts on time!!!

  • Not enough hours, pay

  • There is no work/life balance for store managers in today's environment. As a manager, you have to cover every call-out and crisis. Every other associate can plan a vacation and let you know what dates, but as a manager you have to work around everyone else. No one supports our level of management. The District manager can plan their time of with another District manager "covering". I was lucky to have a supportive staff to allow me vacation time in the past but due to Covid and the fact that people simply do not want to work in a retail environment, that has changed. My fellow store managers are in the same situation. Everybody is tired and there is no incentive to give extra because we don't get paid to work extra. Honestly I would work extra to help another struggling if I got paid for it. Walgreens simply doesn't care if Store Managers are happy and have a life outside of work. There is no plan in place to help us with this.

  • Low pay. Terrible training . No communication.

  • Poor wages, lack of staff, increasing job duties but no extra personnel.

Help job seekers learn about the company by being objective and to the point.
