Overworked and Underpaid

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Working in the pharmacy was quite the learning experience. Pretty much all of the training is on the job and you just learn by doing and asking questions. If you need to learn differently, then this job is not for you. You can be understaffed a lot which gets a lot of patients angry with you not realizing how many tasks you have to keep tabs on. There are rarely any moments to breathe between tasks but usually your coworkers are very supportive and understanding because no one else will be. Prepare to have no energy after a shift.


flexible availability


worst combination of retail and healthcare, underpaid

Used to be fun now its not

Budget cut backs, pay isn't keeping up with industry standards so it's very hard to hire people and then keep people. A lot of micromanagement technology and not allowed to get creative anymore

Its a good work space but management has favoritism’s

Its a great job and fairly easy. But the favoritism is off the chart. It has a lot of good benefits. And its not worth it if you aren’t a full time employee.

Not a good place to work.

The manager was very childish and showed favoritism to some employees. It was extremely hard to work there if you were not in the clique. If you were new and had to ask questions you were treated like you were stupid. It was hard to get anyone to help when it was busy. The shift leads were not helpful most were on a power trip


Helping customers


Too many to mention

Coworkers are wonderful but company needs work

I enjoyed my time at Walgreens due to my former coworkers and had many positions become available to me while working here. Although something this company taught me is that you will ALWAYS be replaceable. This company has shown me time and time again that they don’t really care about their employees, just metrics! At the end of the day, You are just a number to them so don’t expect too much :) Glad I got some experience before I left!

okay part time job

the style of work is actually alright, but jesus if ur a drama queen this is the place for you. only good for people 18 or under- dont waste your time if you want to build a career. hospitals look down on drugstore positions even if you’re in the pharmacy unfortunately.

It’s ok. Management listens to concerns. Good hours. Dealing with people needing their medication and not being able to get it can be hard to watch! But over all like it

work was fair. We helped member with med rec, immunizations. I felt like we did good work helping the elderly. only con is that management kept changing what we needed to do, and cut the contracts short.

rewarding but challenging

high stress working environment. However, there is an incredible breadth of opportunity to learn new things and take on new challenges. Champions also generally has an encouraging culture, and people work together collaboratively to solve problems and help each other.

Easy going job

Cross-trained around the store . Management was very nice and flexible . Great place to grow in career opportunities. It could be slow paced sometimes but during weekends and especially holidays, very busy .

Hard work ,chaotic

Too many tasks and staff doesn't prioritize customers as they should. Too many phone calls to make each day. The front store doesn't back up pharmacy like there suppose to.

Great first job

Honestly where I’m at now it’s like a family in the pharmacy we stick up for each other it’s a great first job to start off with Iv been with Walgreens for a few years I started as a CSA now I’m a ChPT and I really do love it, the customers though I don’t like that part some are very nice most are not. But you can’t like everyone in this world.


Great coworker

Great coworkers but would not work for the company ever again.

What is the best part of working at the company?I was lucky to work for a really good pharmacist, but management above him was awful. I was very unexpressed with Walgreens as an employer. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?I worked with some lovely pharmacy techs. My co-workers were so young with little work experience, I don’t think they even know how much Walgreens takes advantage of them. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Walgreens pharmacy is all about making money. What is a typical day like for you at the company?You’re worked your butt off from sign on to sign off. You could take a lunch but it was unpaid. They did not encourage paid breaks.
