I have been working at Walgreens full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Good benefits. My boss really does care about my well being. I am told how much I am appreciated.

Cons

pay. Hard to get someone fired from Walgreens unless they steal or fail a drug test.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your employees better. Base it on loyalty to the company ( how long someone has worked for you), their experience, and job performance. Stop giving yourselves enormous raises and bonuses when the workers who make the company what it is do not get bonuses at all and work holidays for you. A 2.5% raise is not competative in todays market especially for those of us who have worked 9 years for you.

    I worked at Walgreens full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    If you work hard you can get hours, but they constantly discontinue job positions. Even pharmacy techs get put as cashiers, and asst managers lose their position because if you make a good salary, they discontinue your position.

    Cons

    They don't promote a personal life. I never could plan a family even or make doctor appointments until I retired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You really don't respect good employees
