Phones

How does a team member call a store when it’s closed? I forget what you have to dial to make it ring thru

Couponers

Has anyone had a recent increase in couponers wanting to do multiple transactions (Like 20+ transactions)? I feel like I’m stuck. We need sales and it’s the end of the world if NPS is bad, but we just don’t have time for soo many transactions. Anyone... read more

What can be done?

OK, assuming a 50% payout cut that means every store manager and RxM DM and I DPR all just got screwed. CEO is taking all the money – we are all mad about this and nobody is talking about it. They are cutting retirement benefits, healthcare is more... read more

Converting Rite Aids to Walgreens

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

Too many lies

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

If I knew then...

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.

Walgreens cutting hours
