It's out of control here. And they are not hiring replacements, at least for now, so we are left with an unmanageable amount of work to finish between us in the limited amount of hours we are given. And I don't blame anybody for leaving, the way... —  read more

The year of the Essential Worker

What this virus has taught us is that the workers in the store are essential, not the corporate slugs that have forgotten we existed for years. Instead of investing in all these new buildings and remodels they should have invested in training and... —  read more 

Shame on Walgreens for treating us like this

The only precautions we've taken are minimal. Tape to keep customers 6 feet away, really flexible taped on plexiglass and has to be re-taped to the counter daily, we clean maybe once or twice a day, and we are advised to just use germ-x between... —  read more

Big layoffs in corporate

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

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.
