Overall Reviews at Walgreens
Customer Service Technician | Springfield, OR | Nov 4, 2019
Will always recommend Walgreens
I loved working for Walgreens. For being such a huge company I felt like they actually cared and appreciated the work I did. This was an incredibly easy job but I had so much opportunity to grow and shift if I wanted to and was always provided the tools to do so. I got lucky with amazing co-workers and management but even when the higher-ups would visit the stores it felt like a very friendly community. I gained so many different skills that I can apply in other work places. I only left because I needed to do something different for myself, and I would definitely go back to work there if I needed to.

Overall, Walgreens is a great company to work for but the work/life balance can be challenging. I love this company and have had so many good days, customers, and management but the time has come in my life where I need a better work/life balance.

Great place to work, but lacking in career options
good place to work as a starter job, but while the employees are great, the work place is freezing cold which makes extended shifts nearly unbearable without a jacket even in summer.

Not a properly run company
High turn over company. Management changes very frequently. No stability. If you need Family Medical Leave, they alter the paperwork and you usually get fired.

Overall I have enjoyed working for this company however I am looking to advance my career in my specific job field or similar. This was my first job after having my first child who is now five years old. Since graduating I prefer to enhance my skills and grow my knowledge within other companies. I am currently ranked the highest I can be in the pharmacy so I do not have other options to advance my career
ProsFlexible schedule sometimes
ConsLack of care from management and corporate

Walgreens going downhill
You will be overworked and underpaid. Corporate only cares about money. Your immediate managers will make or break your time with the company, so if you begin to like your managers, then great. If not, you will hate your job.

Management at my home store is somewhat okay. Although the management at another store that I have worked at is very disrespectful and unkind. Working in a high-speed environment, technicians often need breaks. Unfortunately, I had an issue with a Pharmacist where she wouldn't allow me to have a restroom break.

Easy going and understanding
great place to work for. great benefits and laid back environment. They treat their employees right. They did however, train people unwillingly in jobs other than the one they were hired on for. The training process for the most part was fine, but at some times seemed abrupt. Putting people on calls without the proper training.

Customer oriented company
Walgreens is a very diverse organization. Being retail, it is of course very customer driven. Excellent customer care is a priority, from the ‘front end, to the pharmacy, photo dept. and all areas in between.

Promotions not given easily
High pressure workplace. Management happy to keep status quo and keep doing things the way they did while the company was growing. Stores need to be updated badly.
