Got this for a conference call later this week for my area. Surely this will be our yearly no raise call (or worse)?
Topics regarding layoffs at Walgreens
Anyone know yet if their store is closing? Walgreens announced its planning 200 closures. If you got word that your storer is closing, please post in the comments. What were you told? Will you still have a job? Are these stores being sold to a... — read more
https://opportunity.businessroundtable.org/ourcommitment/ Any chance this leads to more budget hours in store? XD
I am a corp. Mgr. First Walgreens terminated or forced out everyone they could for made up ridiculous reasons. Now they have a list of thousands to lay off paying a very limited severance. Start looking for a job everyone, Walgreens has no chance to... — read more
They keep telling us that floaters will convert with their home stores. For areas that already converted, did they layoff all or some of the floaters?
What's going on? This page isn’t working www.walgreens.com didn’t send any data.
If anybody here has worked in a store that previously closed - any chance you can share with us if there were any indicators that the store was closing? I'm just wondering if there is a way to know a store will be on the list ahead of time, just to... — read more
I retired from Walgreens with my 25 yrs about 4 yrs ago. When I left it was not the same Walgreens like it was when I first started. We used to have great benefits, Christmas a bonus, several things to make it a great company to work for... — read more
Does Walgreens even know what type of company they want to be? They focus on beauty/cosmetics more now and are changing the inside of some stores to reflect that. But then they also want to be a FedEx location and it seems like they don't want to be... — read more
If you click the blue "ACTIVE" button on this page you can see posts that recently had replies. I hope this helps.
I have been with Walgreens for 19 years. Ever since we partnered with Boots our company has went down hill. No more senior beauty advisors, no more photo managers, then CCR, simplify, and hour cuts like every week. Now they've cahnged a lot of store... — read more
Taking a great risk here by saying this... but the support on shoplifters more than their own employees and customers says it all. 🤷🏽♀️
Anyone has the slighest idea when they plan to announce the list of stores that will be closed? I feel I need to start looking for jobs now.
That should be the title. Here is my math... 200 stores closing, at 50 employees per store you are looking at 10,000 people losing jobs in the USA only. Also, if they are planning to write off 600 to 700 mil - that's consistent - assuming 60K in... — read more

Has anyone notice alot of empty shelves in your store? Why aren't the products coming in? Why we looking like Walmart right now..
Does anyone know why pharmacy stored in Florida are closing early There are not enough shifts to cover these stores however we all thought when they made all the Pharmacists cut their store hours and float to get them they would need more hours?
Don't know if this concerns all walgreens, but we received email stating if each person in Pharmacy doesn't get 5 people to sign up for 90 day script, manager gets written up. If anyone in store gets survey complaint, that person gets write up... — read more

The management would be wise if they were to look at this Walgreens employee forum - I think people are sincere here as they are anonymous. Employee surveys are not that good as they have people who are scared to be tracked. A forum for employees... — read more
Work together as a team, hit all of your metrics, and then sit back and wait for the money to roll in...until, like last year, the company misses its fiscal goals then you did all that work and get nothing. It is a scam. Do good for the company and... — read more
What is a member of leadership to do on a Saturday when the closing SFL calls off, the other leadership member is out of town, and the store manager refuses to reply to texts/phone calls? Family obligations tonight. Cannot stay to work a double.

So, if they are openly removing 100s of millions in IT spend, guess what's gonna happen to Walgreens IT headcount. Granted there will be more impacts on IT contractors, consultants and other 3rd party vendors but the employees will get impacted too -... — read more

Hahahaha, good luck with that! Get ready Because CVS does not have any fs hours, many times you the store manager are the only employee on duty with NO cashier. Slow stores are by their self up to 7 hours a day. And while being the only one on duty... — read more
What do you guys think about the new bonus plan? Do you think its even achievable? Whole district has to hit to be eligible? Just want to hear other thoughts
From what I understand, come September 2019, a new policy will prohibit the sale of t-b-cco products to any Walgreens customer under the age of 21. Does this mean that a minor cashier will have to call a "Code 21" for a sale of c-gare--es? Working a... — read more
With the reduced front-end hours, full-timers are not affected but part-timers are. Fair enough I suppose. However, as a part-timer who just got done with a grueling four day stretch of mid-shifts in photo, I have to say these full-timers should be... — read more

Does anyone think it would be better to wait it out and keep working for Walgreens in case it gets better, or would it be smarter to look for another job and jump ship?
Should we start a thread on this?
I was told that is mandatory to work Sunday mothers day's it appear that the store needs the ASM in order to survive a busy day.
