Good job. Our Walgreens here are deciding to hire whoever applies, with no d–g testing or background checks. That should end well

I was a Walgreens pharmacist for 10 years, but I quit in November to figure out a new career. I was wondering, however, if the company has prepared its pharmacy employees for d–g shortages on a large scale resulting from the coronavirus. Because the... — read more

When do store manager get paid when it surrounds a holiday?
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.
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?
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

What stores have a union in these areas , New York and New Jersey and maybe PA ?
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
Any update if there will be a bonus? When? How much?
