I worked at Walgreens part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

All technicians have to be certified so you are not working with people who don't know there jobs. Workflow keeps everyone in place allowing the shift to run smoothly.Great benefits, can buy shares in the co, in-store discounts and online. Great pharmacists.

Cons

Shifts are constantly cut. Managers don't stay long because of the workload placed on them. Customers are horrid to the staff, and then are given gifts cards for their hissy fits. Need to higher more technicians for the number of prescriptions. Pharmacy constantly swamped. Be ready to deal with rude doctors and outsourced insurance agents who don't have a clue.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop cutting shifts and add more technicians so the ones you have are not pulling their hair out. Without the extra help lots of mistakes are made making the company look incompetent.

    I worked at Walgreens part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working in the pharmacy can be very rewarding.

    Cons

    No job security. One we you would have 40 hours the next you'd have 8. It was very wishy washy due to the need to meet the "bottom line" Caused alot of stress between employees and manager.s

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management can't really help how many hours their store gets, its corporate that needs to look at the big picture.
