Topics regarding layoffs at Walgreens
Walgreens plans a big layoffs in IT. Rumor is that no package will be provided. My advice would be run away. Walgreens has no future. If there is an option for another job just take it and don't look back
Master thread, share info here.
When do store manager get paid when it surrounds a holiday?
So, how much longer will Walgreens be around with all their managers and employees leaving? I know a ton of stores near me that have no store manager anymore and most of the employees are quitting.
With the store manager bonus being a thing of the past, how many managers are leaving or have left due to this? Kinda like taking a 5k-15k paycut. I'm sure cvs will be next to axe the bonus program. Less hours, no bonus = 2 weeks notice?
Is it normal for Walgreens to be so understaffed that the manager on duty doesn't get breaks or lunches because there is no one to cover? It seems to be trending in my area. It's a thing for opening manager to get no lunch because of no coverage, and... — read more

Any other area being forced to do "code green" in pharmacy? Or is it just the Carolinas. Code green is when the opening manager has to go back when rx opens and fill their queue and put it in ready bins and then put their truck up for then. Being... — read more

What i am about to say, maybe harsh and it is just a thought. I am throwing this out to open up conversation and get others opinion. I didn’t like what happened, but I think some responsibility should lie within our profession. I think we should all... — read more
Seems whatever is in their long term plan is something they don't want in the public eye. https://www.thestreet.com/video/what-walgreens-potentially-going-private-means-for-markets-15154711

What stores have a union in these areas , New York and New Jersey and maybe PA ?
Store manager told me last year he will be taking pay cut for second year in a row. He said NPS scores mean nothing because no bonuses. Imagine in one year taking a $16,000.00 pay cut but expected to do more with fewer people and hrs.. Associates are... — read more
Any update if there will be a bonus? When? How much?
Worked as a shift lead opening and closing the store. Store manager who hated the job, couldn’t keep staff and constant shop lifting. The place is not safe for customers or employees

Under this the store manager works in pharmacy for first hour. Only other person on floor has to deal with vendors, customers, photo, answering phone, and anything else that needs done. Registers are c-ap, rewards system is offline most of the... — read more
Got this for a conference call later this week for my area. Surely this will be our yearly no raise call (or worse)?
Anyone know yet if their store is closing? Walgreens announced its planning 200 closures. If you got word that your storer is closing, please post in the comments. What were you told? Will you still have a job? Are these stores being sold to a... — read more
https://opportunity.businessroundtable.org/ourcommitment/ Any chance this leads to more budget hours in store? XD
I am a corp. Mgr. First Walgreens terminated or forced out everyone they could for made up ridiculous reasons. Now they have a list of thousands to lay off paying a very limited severance. Start looking for a job everyone, Walgreens has no chance to... — read more
They keep telling us that floaters will convert with their home stores. For areas that already converted, did they layoff all or some of the floaters?
What's going on? This page isn’t working www.walgreens.com didn’t send any data.
If anybody here has worked in a store that previously closed - any chance you can share with us if there were any indicators that the store was closing? I'm just wondering if there is a way to know a store will be on the list ahead of time, just to... — read more

Does Walgreens even know what type of company they want to be? They focus on beauty/cosmetics more now and are changing the inside of some stores to reflect that. But then they also want to be a FedEx location and it seems like they don't want to be... — read more

I have been with Walgreens for 19 years. Ever since we partnered with Boots our company has went down hill. No more senior beauty advisors, no more photo managers, then CCR, simplify, and hour cuts like every week. Now they've cahnged a lot of store... — read more
Taking a great risk here by saying this... but the support on shoplifters more than their own employees and customers says it all. 🤷🏽♀️
Anyone has the slighest idea when they plan to announce the list of stores that will be closed? I feel I need to start looking for jobs now.
That should be the title. Here is my math... 200 stores closing, at 50 employees per store you are looking at 10,000 people losing jobs in the USA only. Also, if they are planning to write off 600 to 700 mil - that's consistent - assuming 60K in... — read more
