Overall, management was the WORST. They changed out managers every month, I kid you not. Every one of these managers seemed like they "owned" Walgreens and in reality every time the District manager came through they ripped them a new one for all the things that were not done right. If anything was done right, it was definitely not done by managers but rather them harassing their employees to do something in such a certain way that it had to be done more than once. I was here for a long time but I dreaded every time i walked through those doors. I was someone in which the managers relied on a lot. A LOT. I honestly did more work than the managers themselves did. I got a new job and helped on the weekends but it turned out everything they did not want to do during the week was saved for me. I ended up leaving and I thank god for my new job that i ABSOLUTELY love Out of this job I can say that I have learned time management and organizational skill because these things are crucial for surviving here.
good coworker (some)
Bad managers, micromanagement, negative attitudes.
The atmosphere has a lot to do with whether or not walgreen's will be a nice, stress-free job, or a stressful and frustrating place of work. The store I worked at was one of the busiest in the area, but we were lucky to have a great store manager, and staff that actively engaged in appropriate, friendly work relationships. As a company, walgreen's does not pay its employees what they are worth. Over the course of three year i had only made a 56 cent increase in pay, a coworker had only made a cent increase in the course of a year.
staff relationships, paid 15 minute break

It's a neighborhood store. This store is very productive and fun workplace with coworkers, shift leads & managers. It's an enjoyable working environment. Customers are nice. They also give us good feed back.
Customer rating are high at this stores
The company offers good benefits. Work can be sometimes boring sometimes stressful. Half hour breaks only! Even if you work more than 8 hours a day. Customers get upset often when price tags don’t match prices at the register.
Short breaks, low pay
It is always fun, my cowokers are a blast to work with, management is always understanding. There is always something to do. The people always are friendly, or if not they are able to work around. I've certainly enjoyed it, just my commute and compensation have been lacking as of late.
The company as a whole is honest fair and competitive. if you want to make it a career you can but you are gonna have to work for it. Some days you will face heavy lifting, angry customer, sick and dying individuals which can be emotionally devastating, taxing deadlines, long hours, and mind numbing monotonous tasks, and a constant need to be vigilant to protect patients and their information. other days are really satisfying helping people feel better, finding just the right solution to their problem, finishing a masterpiece in the photo gifts, bringing a smile to someones face and the company empowers its employees to achieve those ends.
good benefits, growth, and opportunities
long hours and less rewarding at lower or entry level positions

At Walgreens the people you work with really feel like a second family at times. That comes with the good, and the bad, but like family, the good outweighs the bad. On a regular day of Walgreens, you'll be tasked with keeping the store up to date on the latest stock of items, clearing the floor of items, and general management duties.Whichever department you're assigned to, you'll be taught every aspect of how to run and organize your department. Customer Service also known as ECC in the company is the skill you are taught the most however, as it's the core of Walgreens. Although Shift Leads aren't officially considered management, you are still tasked with managing the employees and opening/closing the store. Once you become a shift lead, you really start to learn the ins and outs of management experience, but are guided by your Assistant Store Manager and Store Manager. Management officially consists of the Assistant Store Manager and the store manager, however Shift Leads are typically included for store purposes as management. The Assistant Store Manager is tasked with the top management of all regular floor employees, and guidance for the Shift Leads. The Store Manager is tasked with the top management for the Shift Leads, and the the upkeep of the entire store. It's essential that the three of these positions all get along to keep the communication cycle efficient and comfortable in the store. They are what keep the family at Walgreens together. The hardest part of the job would be working a majority of the holidays, and not being able to take off at all - more...
Management communication, Clear progression path, Guaranteed 40 hours
Working every holiday, Regular 10 hour shifts
I worked for this company for 3 years and once my store manager transferred, I transferred because I couldn't stand the replacement. Then I dred going to my job entirely when I made it to a different, and busier store. The manager there was also the district manager and she was just AWFUL. I walked out for a dinner break one night and didn't come back.
I loved working for this company. When it comes to working at a pharmacy in the retail setting it really comes down to the store you work at. I was lucky in the sense that the store I worked at was awesome; the staff was great and a pleasure to work with. The customers could be a little demanding at times but nothing too crazy. This is a great company to work for.
I arrive at work either morning or night, it's either steady busy or slow. I learned a lot from my co-workers and manager. My boss gives me a list of tasks to complete before my shift ends. I learned how to make signs for sale products, how to count money at the end of the night, and how to merchandise new products on shelves. My boss is nice and courteous. My co-workers help me out if I am busy with my work. The hardest part of the job is when there is a line of people and my manager is telling to process pictures. I enjoy my work when I work on the floor because when shipment comes, I get more done.
I learned many aspects about the company
Not enough employees
