Topics regarding layoffs at Walgreens

Lack of managers and employees

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.

Store Manager Bonus GONE!?

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?

No lunches or breaks for MOD

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 stores have a union in these areas , New York and New Jersey and maybe PA ?

This is unfair

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

Walgreens to Lay Off 10,000 Employees

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
