Well, here it is folks, IBM is on the verge of losing the Walgreens contract due to mismanagement of field support staff, just a few week shy of the 1 year anniversary of the contract. IBM will be forced to "find" a replacement field service for... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Walgreens
Looks like 185 Fred's stores are being acquired by Walgreens. We still don't know which ones exactly, but it would be nice to know what to expect if our store is on the list. Anybody here knows more about how Walgreens handles acquisitions? Are we... read more
I heard that some of the Rite Aids that were bought are getting fully converted to Walgreens. Curious as to how that whole process works? Does the store shut down? Are there new systems installed? Any special sales or promotions? Do all the employees... read more
We were told for three months during two other stores' liquidations that our store would remain open. We helped close those other two stores while still also working at our own store. They even let us hire in a new cashier, sent her for her tests/bg... read more
Another 869 jobs lost because of Walgreens. Why am I not surprised? Walgreens has bought Davita prescription drug unit, which will lead Davita to lay off 869 employees in Coppell... read more
Any idea what this is about?
Was there a reorganization in IT? Three employees from my department are moving to other departments. Two were transferred, and one claims that a job was created (it does not show on the organizational hierarchy chart), she interviewed for it, and... read more
Now that Amazon has acquired PillPack and our stock has taken a major hit, who else thinks that the knee-jerk reaction will be more layoffs? Either that, or we'll see more cuts in hours (as unrealistic as that is.) On another note, anybody else... read more
Anyone has the info? What's the next step?
https://www.google.com/amp/s/mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKBN1JA29L Also going after amerisource, cardinal... What effect do you think this will have a store level?
Anybody here knows where I could find a list or at least a reliable number of Rite Aid stores that have closed so far since the acquisition? New announcements keep coming, and it would be nice to know how close or far we are from the announced 600... read more
Six months ago I started to work at Walgreens...I was just laid off. Budgetary reasons...but the interesting thing is that they promoted someone and it seems like they eliminated my job just to pay someone else more. Sad.
stores are loosing hours ours went from 375 a week to 310 so no one will get more then 20 hours most were getting 35 to 40. Same here. This is pretty much more efficient than layoffs since a bunch of people will decide to quit on their own and look... read more
Not sure how widespread but several groups in Deerfield laid people off today.
Alot products that's in the store that dont do do well in your store will be eliminated. There is alot of wasted spaces. What work for one location in sale might not work for another. Now they will bring in product that bring profits and let go... read more
I see that some stores have already seen their hours cut and it is obvious that Walgreens plans to do this with all of its 9 to 9 stores, but does anybody know when is this going to take effect more broadly? Is there any chance that they are testing... read more
So they are going to fire the store managers, then promote Rx managers to manage the store, but not be store managers, because that position won't exist anymore. Take the highest paid employee in the store, make them in charge, replace them with... read more
Store managers don't have to worry just yet. However rx staff at 9am to 9pm stores should worry NOW. Major rollback of hours at these stores is on the horizon and coming very quickly. Everyone at these locations beware.
The last Walgreens family member left the board room several years ago . The MBA's took over slashing benefits and using the money for expansion. Their mantra , own it and get paid less " .
Can some explain what RFT is? Thanks
I work at a walgreens in Omaha and they have cut our budget for all of march and April. It is absolutely ridiculous, considering there already underpay employees extremely. I admit, there are some employees that don't work to the full potential, but... read more
I have heard that Walgreens, like CVS is giving a raise of 2$ to their employees in April. Is this true?
Managers are forced out after 13 to 25 years. I guess the chopped block has begun. Walgreens spend 4.4 billions dollars in cash on Rite Aid will explain the cuts going on.
Do anybody about new return policy?
We are at a time where facts and opinions don't matter no more. Collect your check and go home is motto. "If you dont like it than find another job". As time moves on so is the company changing values. All the years working with a company that you... read more
This new management style is more about developing self directed work teams and ousting managers that it is anything else. Managers are told to coddle their staff - baby them - make "warm and fuzzies" while management doesn't get the same from their... read more
This company is in utter and complete chaos! The entire Walgreens is utterly disorganized. We have management that is easily threatened by anybody with new ideas that would shake up the status quo. We also have leadership that never stands up for... read more
we've been getting more and more changes in procedure and less and less training for it... we are expected to do our jobs every day perfectly, but we are barely told how to do something anymore... but if we make a mistake, it's an automatic... read more
What's with all the random cuts in hours? I'll be doing 35 hours consistently, and then suddenly I'll be down to 20 with no reason or warning. And it's not just me, everybody has been affected. This goes on for a few weeks, then they realize the... read more
I'm really tired of freeloading managers at my store. We are all expected to do our jobs and theirs on top of it, while they sit around doing nothing. Except when somebody from the corporate is here, then suddenly they are the exemplary employees... read more
Rite Aid deal will apparently bring on carnage. Around 600 drugstores will be closed by Walgreens. Most of them will be Rite Aid stores, but not all. This was expected, consolidations always mean layoffs, but this truly sounds excessive... read more
Is there any any truth in this? Is Walgreens going to Layoff Management Staff?
I heard that some of the pharmacy will close on Sundays startinf rhis month..
You know Walgreens is doing really bad when they start laying off and demoting pregnant employees. Had to take the demotion for insurance purposes otherwise my gap in insurance could make my pregnancy a pre existing condition. What makes it worse is... read more
Is this effecting pharmacy or the store ?? Do anybody know of this info??
Every single employee at my Walgreens were forced to take pay cuts ,including the Pharmacists, and put in extra hours (unpaid) to keep their jobs. We are in a shortage area and everything costs more but no one cares. They pile on the work for older... read more
So the merger is off, but Walgreens is still buying over 2000 Rite Aid stores. Not really sure how this will work out in the end, but I guess we will see soon enough. http://www.wkbw.com/news/national/walgreens-to-buy-nearly-half-of-rite-aid-stores
