I have been working at Walgreens full-time (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.

    Current Employee - Head Photo Specialist in Houston, TX (US)

    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, Cashier>Photo>Head Photo in 1 Year. 7.25>9.50 in 1 year. Decent Vacation allotment. Decent Insurance.

    Cons

    Boring. Lots of trickle down corporate intervention. High Turnover. Lazy coworkers tend to get hired because you start at minimum wage. Hard to care about the job when you make that pay rate. Rarely is there something that doesn't need to be done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allot enough hours to get the job done.
