Topics regarding layoffs at Walgreens

Just a Question

Hey folks, first time poster here. Are there any Windsor CT Distribution Center employees here? If so, how much longer are these 12 hour days going to continue? I do not want to see this throughout the Winter that’s for sure. I’m tired of coiming in... —  read more

What would you change here?

I started noticing that the situation is getting worse and worse. I no longer have much hope that things will get better and it is easier for me to find a new job....... Honestly, I don’t even know what I would most like to change here. Radical... —  read more

CVS is increasing their pay! $13 is their new minimum starting this month and they will be at 15 by next July! $15 is going to be their minimum for the people who work on the floor so it’ll be like 17-19 for their mgrs! I know CVS is different then... —  read more 

Thinking of coming back

I left a year ago on good terms and I ran into my old store manager a few days ago who said they were hiring. I told him I’d think about it but honestly, when I think about how bad it was there I’m a bit hesitant. I wanted to ask him if things have... —  read more 

What can it hurt?

Everyone should keep their resumes up to date and have their financials in order, but most of all always be looking for a better job. There is nothing wrong with taking control of your future. Granted you can’t control being laid off, but what you... —  read more

Going back to Walgreens?

I am very disappointed with this company and I think I am unfairly 'punished with layoff' for all my hard work, loyalty and engagement. I was not prepared for layoff at all and after that I was forced to find any new job. And I found it. The... —  read more

Always short on staff

I started right before the pandemic hit and there hasn’t been one day that I’ve come to work and we’re not short staffed. I don’t understand why we can’t get more people scheduled or better yet - hire more people. Is this just in my location or is... —  read more

Your store is even worse?

My store is ridiculous. They have me down with no hours and there’s a snitch who does almost no work. You have to kiss their but and they are snotty no matter how hard you work. 1 of the worst jobs I’ve had as far as being treated like a person. They... —  read more

Lack of employees

I’m too tired. I’ve never had more work to do. I’ve been barely getting to finish everything lately. I am literally overwhelmed with the job. Closest colleagues have the same problem. I don’t know what your situation is like? If this continues, I’m... —  read more 

Roz Brewer....Good Luck!!!

I worked at Sam's Club when Roz Brewer was CEO. Honestly, all she is concerned about are two things.... cutting overall operating costs (meaning jobs) and diversifying the work force by forcing long term employees out for bogus reasons and replacing... —  read more 

Should we be worried?

Our CFO doesn’t think Amazon’s role in the pharmacy industry will have much of an impact. But I think as online transactions become more of the norm due to the pandemic, what consumer would not want to purchase their medication through Amazon saving... —  read more

Walgreens Bonuses

For those of you who have not been with Walgreens for a very long time, managers used to be able to see their P&L statements every month to see how they were doing. Once Pessina and the Boots cronies came on board all of that went away. Why because... —  read more 

600 FTEs gone

Old colleagues just let me know they've been laid off 600 is the number they gave me. Times are tough everywhere. It's going to take a new business model to be in business these days.

Don’t make this a career

If you need a part time job, then by all means I’d recommend this company to you. But to make it as a career is something I’d advise against especially if you’re looking for something more ‘challenging’. The work is repetitive, there is a lack of... —  read more

Pessina Resigns as CEO

We need more old white men to collect their piles of money and find their way to the door. Hopefully someone who places value in employees as assets instead of costs to be cut will take over.
