Amazons is on the verge to open up thousands of cashierless grocery stores with pharmacy’s inside. I have no doubt this will drive Walgreens out of business
Topics regarding layoffs at Walgreens
Basically the entire chain has been indoctrinated to Frontier and the Pulse ways of working. With budget reductions, busy pharmacies, etc, what does a weekly Pulse meeting look like in your stores? Are you even doing it? Are your DMs watching Pulse... read more
Who knows if the USA is next?
So years later, the merger has actually gone through and layoffs are starting to happen, can anyone tell me what severance packages is wag offering. Is it 3 months pay or is it only 2 weeks pay per year of service? I'd like to know the same thing. In... read more
Anyone else getting screwed by the live well/ spending acct? I received an email mid November 2018 stating I had over $70 million in it, I was surprised and even called them and was told it was correct and to be sure and use it by end of year or it... read more
So I’ve heard there is restructuring coming from the Dm level up. Does anyone know what that looks like? My DPR is going to corporate and mentioned they aren’t promoting people to replace DPRs that’s are leaving.
How does a team member call a store when it’s closed? I forget what you have to dial to make it ring thru
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
Why did PTO accrual change for salaried employees with the WWS change, is corporate aware of this and will they fix the glitch?
The man should stick to selling cosmetics and other beauty products. He is truly in over his egomaniacal head in the healthcare business. Employees have been leaving in droves. They are underpaid, unappreciated, understaffed, lied to and have worse... read more

Anyone knows why Topix closed all the forums. Including the Walgreens one...
Now that Walgreens Topix Forum is gone (forever) can we start to have discussions here. I am OK to go to any other site but this one at least has some W employees who are willing to communicate. Thoughts?
Is anyone able to log into Kronos at home or on a mobile phone. I am hearing that some folks are enabled to do so and can see their hours but I cannot. Is there a trick? Also, someone told me that a special license is needed and it's expensive for... read more
The Topix forum has been closed down. I hope people will migrate over to here because there was such valuable information posted hourly and daily on the Topix board. How can we get the word out to all come here?

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
Happy holidays from IBM 85+ Walgreen dedicated Technicians let go before the holidays !! Reason: they make to much and are hiring low cost labor to replace them.
They are coming up with BS lies to fire the store managers. My husband and his father were both with the company for over 15 years. They fired them both for stuff they did not do I would get out of there before you are screwed over too. Now ASMs have... read more
Here it is! SEC charges Walgreens to pay 35.5 million USD and fines the former CEO and CFO to pay 160k each. Let me get this straight, the former CEO and CFO are paid handsomely to do their job, and when they don't do it well, they just present... read more
Well, here it is folks, IBM is on the verge of losing the Walgreens contract due to mismanagement of field support staff, just a few week shy of the 1 year anniversary of the contract. IBM will be forced to "find" a replacement field service for... read more
Looks like 185 Fred's stores are being acquired by Walgreens. We still don't know which ones exactly, but it would be nice to know what to expect if our store is on the list. Anybody here knows more about how Walgreens handles acquisitions? Are we... read more
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
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
Another 869 jobs lost because of Walgreens. Why am I not surprised? Walgreens has bought Davita prescription drug unit, which will lead Davita to lay off 869 employees in Coppell... read more
Any idea what this is about?
Was there a reorganization in IT? Three employees from my department are moving to other departments. Two were transferred, and one claims that a job was created (it does not show on the organizational hierarchy chart), she interviewed for it, and... read more
Now that Amazon has acquired PillPack and our stock has taken a major hit, who else thinks that the knee-jerk reaction will be more layoffs? Either that, or we'll see more cuts in hours (as unrealistic as that is.) On another note, anybody else... read more
Anyone has the info? What's the next step?
https://www.google.com/amp/s/mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKBN1JA29L Also going after amerisource, cardinal... What effect do you think this will have a store level?
Anybody here knows where I could find a list or at least a reliable number of Rite Aid stores that have closed so far since the acquisition? New announcements keep coming, and it would be nice to know how close or far we are from the announced 600... read more
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.
stores are loosing hours ours went from 375 a week to 310 so no one will get more then 20 hours most were getting 35 to 40. Same here. This is pretty much more efficient than layoffs since a bunch of people will decide to quit on their own and look... read more
Not sure how widespread but several groups in Deerfield laid people off today.
Alot products that's in the store that dont do do well in your store will be eliminated. There is alot of wasted spaces. What work for one location in sale might not work for another. Now they will bring in product that bring profits and let go... read more
I see that some stores have already seen their hours cut and it is obvious that Walgreens plans to do this with all of its 9 to 9 stores, but does anybody know when is this going to take effect more broadly? Is there any chance that they are testing... read more
So they are going to fire the store managers, then promote Rx managers to manage the store, but not be store managers, because that position won't exist anymore. Take the highest paid employee in the store, make them in charge, replace them with... read more
