Is it a practice of Walgreens for the employee reviews to give an overall rating slightly below 3, changing the raise amount?

  • They claim you can get $1 raise every year but it’s really just 5 cents

  • Its entirely based on what management wants or is told by the district. They will curve your score if the manager grades to high as well.

    You will almost always see a 3 or 3.5

    You will almost never see a 4.

    They do not give 5s. District can, and will, change that.

  • Management is effectively told to be stingy with 4s and 5s on the reviews, that only elite employees can demonstrate those traits.

  • Management will always rate you around a 3. That keeps your raise down. It doesnt matter how well you perform or what you do you will never get a higher review.

  • The management team was pretty much on our side so if you deserved a 4 then they would give you a 4.

  • I was told that you are not allowed to score a perfect score on reviews and if you do they will review it and probably change it. "There is always room for improvement."

  • I got a 4 on my review, which means I was adequate at my job but not good enough to be up for promotion. If you get a 3, chances are you have room for improvement. It's more up to you and the effort you put into your work.

  • No they don't hand out raises very easily.

  • Yes it is , store gets rated as a whole
