The Topix forum has been closed down. I hope people will migrate over to here because there was such valuable information posted hourly and daily on the Topix board. How can we get the word out to all come here?

"Get the hell over it! Topix deserved to be shut down because of all the c-ap that happened on it and it better stay that way for good."
2 % of the bottom stores will be closed. They've already been notified this year . Then next year the bottom 2 % and then the year after and so on and so on . Until there are no more non profitable locations, so statistically with the down trend in sales this may never stop until there is nothing left. Along with numerous slower pharmacies cutting back to one 8-10 hour shift daily. The future looks very bleak . It is just a mad money grab by the European Cartel that acquired this once great company, And raising the prices through the roof is the way these geniuses will raise their profit and chase away the remainder of its loyal customers . Used to be a customer and employee now I am neither. Instead of hiring a qualified CEO they've decided to go the cheap route and go with Stefano , who's philosophy is to cut hours , pay , maintainence and of course bonuses on subordinates demoralizing them even further. This is why the goals are so unrealistic as no one will attain them and even if they do the corporate multiplier can end up ZERO and any number multiplied by ZERO of course is ZERO. Just go find anything else as sooner or later it will be a mirror image of CVS . One cashier, one pharmacist and one member of management . This is a loss prevention nightmare as the boosters know these facts and steal at will as most of them have our protected keys from disgruntled employees or the internet . Walking out with hundreds of thousands of dollars weekly . Be sure and take this years survey , so they can create their own results . Maybe as a suggestion a request for lower pay , less benefits, and less hours would be apropos . Oh sorry I released their findings . RUN FORREST RUN!!!
they really should’ve just left those damn Rite Aide stores open! idk about everyone else but more than my original Wag customers these ones are rude and entitled. ugh. biggest mistake EVER!!!
I will NEVER forgive topix for shutting down their forum!
Read the news tab on store net in regards to the 3rd quarter earnings. If their intention is to run the entire company into the ground then lets give them an A+. But they are too stupid to understand all of the dedicated employees that have been dismissed or rewired will never again be customers nor will their families nor anyone else who knows their stories. The next step will be store closings and more lawsuits from scorned employees. Stefano either has no EGO or is so senile he has no idea what is happening. Blaming it on the retail environment and accepting no responsibility. In an era where all employees are being held accountable for the failures of the corporate leadership. The executives are laughing all the way to the bank . I support TRUMPS idea deport all of them , but I guess they don't fit the profile for the typical alien. They are destroying more than any illegals running across the border will ever be capable of.
I cannot find anything anyone about what’s going on so where are all the people going as I would like to go there too

It's better than Topix IMHO
Well I'll be a monkey's uncle. A lot of the anti-Topix comments on here have been removed here most likely by Topix fans who whined about the pwecious wittle website being removed. So stupid.
It's pretty ironic that you Topix fanatics go all crybaby about your freedom of speech being threatened when you use that same freedom to threaten others. Hell, it's cowardly to hide behind free speech and use it as a means to antagonize innocent people. Well how would you like it your enemies use their free speech to threaten you?
If you Topix fans come on here just to b--ch about Topix's disappearance and slander us, I have these words for you:
"Grow some balls and s--- it up or stay the hell off this site."
Does anyone know about the big announcement coming in May? Theres a buzz in my store about it.
Former topix users should search walgreens on Reddit, it's better than the format here, imo
In Walgreens News Passina said bonus will be cut in the Fall. IWIK how much this will affect him. I’d like to know how much charity from Red Nose will be affected? IWIK why they let middle manangement make decisions that don’t jive with corporate and are not store friendly and most of all why do we do frontier?
Does Walgreen's respect Jewish employees that honor the Sabbath?
I was in a Walgreen's and overheard 2 employees talking about how one had to come in on their Sabbath to work and they would give them another day off. As an observant Jew I was appalled to hear this. No more shopping at Walgreen's for me.
I am a Night Pharmacist and of course don't get a tech. We fill like 500 scripts a day and I probably fill 150 overnight. During the day there are 3 pharmacists and 7 technicians filling the other 350. I think this is unfair scheduling. The allotted tech hours should be spread out throughout the day and I should at the very least have a tech until 1:00 am or 2:00 am. Because I am all alone in these demands I know I can do nothing. If I even say anything to the herd I am sure I will get a bad review. I have had it and can't wait to leave this disgusting company.
Anyone other ASMs/T having an area wide conference call this week? Just wondering if there is any info floating out there.
I have been with Walgreens as a Pharmacy Technician for 4 years already and no where has it been brought up that I should be a senior technician, I basically do everything at this store but I am getting really under paid 16.50 compared to the senior tech who is making 24.00. What should I do to become A senior Tech? Does anybody know the Requirements? I am Almost going to graduate with my bachelors degree in Biology, should I ask for a raise? If any of you could help that would be amazing Thank You !!
Nasty naughty filthy hotties. http://example.com/f5d98b5
Things were much better when I ran the company. Now these rummies from the UK come in and everyone is leaving or wants to leave
Let’s get the party started again !
What great about Walgreens boots and lie
Good to know you have to get surveys from customers to hang yourselves
Had a bunch of people during the year ask of a manager can help them
It took the manager 45 minutes to get to the customer because he was tied up with so many things and running all over the store
Ok would you please fill out my survey for me on how you liked my service
Oh yes I will fill it out and tell them that they need to give you more help
Oh no don’t do that because they will say that I don’t do the system correctly
And they will not give me my bonus
Oh but I don’t get s bonus anyway because my sales stinks and I can’t keep loyal Customers any more
They love me and feel bad for me but they just can’t wait in line any more
You see the manager is in the pharmacy helping get the line down and is in the middle of a customer complaint
He got the wrong medicine because they don’t give the pharmacist enough help and want the pharmacist to fill and rush the pr-scrip-ions according to the fill by promise time
They already missed 20 labels by promised time while they were helping to person who had their pr-scrip-ion filled wrong
The manager has to calm the patient down and help ring the other customers
The manager cannot do back up front for ic3 for a refund so the line grows longer up front
People get off the line up front and say they are going to cvs across the street or will never come back if in a hurry to buy something
There is only one cashier up front and the manager cannot call anyone to help in pharmacy because the designated hitter quit two weeks ago and they have not been able to replace. There is also a sick call for later and the manager has to find the time in between this to call someone to relieve the cashier up front soon
Is PTO not calculating the same as it was before WWS for salaried employees? It is lower by about 8% but nothing changed except WWS. Check chronos on Sundays for accrual, did yours change too?
I would guess WBA is pathetic it every state. Why would one state be better than another? The company's culture is unethical and they break their own policies at their whim. EVERYONE I know that still works there are unhappy (and therefore unhealthy).
What state is the best state to work at Walgreens In? If you believe it to be one let me know.
We are discussing things on this forum right now.

I was in a deep state of depression when Topix evaporated. Just want to say 'hi there' to you all.
Just read that there will be more layoffs in 2019. Not sure how true this is tho
The FB group cracks me up... You need to pass the test to be accepted - LOL
How do you punch in if time clock is broken ? & what’s the name of it
What are 3 reasons that would cause us to not accept a coupon ? And why are they important to enforce
What brand telxon / tablet does your store have ? If you were doing 1506’s What are some codes you would use
I think we are stuck with the Layoff dot com now.
I wish if we can create user ids like we had on Topix.
I'll be checking here.
So sad! I misss topix
"How can we get the word about". I would think that people could find this by doing a google search. I am not "super" computer savvy so I don't know how you can get the right words into a google search. Or maybe having a link on one of the Walgreens employees facebook groups. One of these groups a few members commented that they were sad to see topix shut down. "It had a lot of credible information. There has to be another forum somewhere. FB is to public, people liked topix for its anonymity." Another: "That sux, the anonymity was awesome and good info there" These two comments came from a facebook group called "Walgreens employees/fired/retired/preemployment/maternity/FMLA leave". On this facebook group it had the link to this website, The Layoff.com If I didn't join this group, I wouldn't have known about this.
The entire Topix website shutdown, not just the Walgreens forums.
Wow , just when things at walgreens were getting strange it shut down. I signed on to see what was happening/ how could this be?
Will this be set up like Topix where it was by subject? Who's moderating this board (if this is a board)?
It was polluted with spam and it was not moderated... I think folks will continue here. No other option exist (aside from FB, but on FB they see your name and they spy on you)...
Topix shut down for good.
What happened to Walgreens Forum Topix? Is it in a new location?
