CVS is increasing their pay! $13 is their new minimum starting this month and they will be at 15 by next July! $15 is going to be their minimum for the people who work on the floor so it’ll be like 17-19 for their mgrs! I know CVS is different then... — read more
I left a year ago on good terms and I ran into my old store manager a few days ago who said they were hiring. I told him I’d think about it but honestly, when I think about how bad it was there I’m a bit hesitant. I wanted to ask him if things have... — read more
I've been hearing rumors from a few store managers that this is in the works and could be enforced as early as August. I hope this isn't true but with the way things have went (Role Refresh, etc.), I'll believe anything at this point. Sc--w... — read more
Everyone should keep their resumes up to date and have their financials in order, but most of all always be looking for a better job. There is nothing wrong with taking control of your future. Granted you can’t control being laid off, but what you... — read more
I am very disappointed with this company and I think I am unfairly 'punished with layoff' for all my hard work, loyalty and engagement. I was not prepared for layoff at all and after that I was forced to find any new job. And I found it. The... — read more
If someone had asked me that earlier, I would be very happy to recommend it. However, I'm not so sure now... A friend from a competing company is interested in moving here and it was hard for me to be objective. I’m not complaining, I’m still in a... — read more
I'm in Virginia. I was told today as of Friday the technicians will no longer be administering the covid-19 shots. Pharmacists will take that over again. I don't know why the change. Does that mean Pharmacy techs will still get their$1000 bonuses in... — read more
I started right before the pandemic hit and there hasn’t been one day that I’ve come to work and we’re not short staffed. I don’t understand why we can’t get more people scheduled or better yet - hire more people. Is this just in my location or is... — read more
It's not the best but it's certainly not the worst. Most importantly, it's a job in the middle of a pandemic. I can't understand how so many people can complain when we have some of the safest jobs at the time when so many are out of work. I'm not... — read more
My store is ridiculous. They have me down with no hours and there’s a snitch who does almost no work. You have to kiss their but and they are snotty no matter how hard you work. 1 of the worst jobs I’ve had as far as being treated like a person. They... — read more
This is at least the 10th store in the city to be closed by the d–gstore chain since the beginning of 2019. The Walgreens at the corner of Van Ness and Eddy in the Tenderloin closed in November... — read more
I’m too tired. I’ve never had more work to do. I’ve been barely getting to finish everything lately. I am literally overwhelmed with the job. Closest colleagues have the same problem. I don’t know what your situation is like? If this continues, I’m... — read more

I worked at Sam's Club when Roz Brewer was CEO. Honestly, all she is concerned about are two things.... cutting overall operating costs (meaning jobs) and diversifying the work force by forcing long term employees out for bogus reasons and replacing... — read more
I am very happy that the vaccine has brought a new hope for battling COVID, but also, with the start of vaccination, my obligations have increased. I find it even harder when I talk to people who are employed in other industries - they think that it... — read more
Our CFO doesn’t think Amazon’s role in the pharmacy industry will have much of an impact. But I think as online transactions become more of the norm due to the pandemic, what consumer would not want to purchase their medication through Amazon saving... — read more
I am getting so tired of people calling others “s— ups” when it’s actually called “good rapport” - please learn the difference. I started at the very bottom back in 07’ and worked my way up to SM in a high volume location. Yes, I engaged my SM and... — read more

There's been discussion about potential legislation that would allow qualified pharmacy technicians to administer the covid vaccine to patients. I'm just curious about what everyone's thoughts are about this. Our competitor has been open about how... — read more
we can relax and not worry about more layoffs for a while, right? Right? Didn't think so.
The usual reason for extending hours is to disperse traffic throughout the day, but I don’t notice the need for that at Walgreens. Another stupid move is to extend hours for December. They really do not care about us. Sales decline fewer... — read more
For those of you who have not been with Walgreens for a very long time, managers used to be able to see their P&L statements every month to see how they were doing. Once Pessina and the Boots cronies came on board all of that went away. Why because... — read more
I hear there is a role refresh meeting on 11/10 for store managers, and they must take it from home.
People are talking at my store, mentioning possible layoffs next month but nobody knows what the rumor originated from. Should I just ignore it or is there something I should worry about?
Old colleagues just let me know they've been laid off 600 is the number they gave me. Times are tough everywhere. It's going to take a new business model to be in business these days.
If you need a part time job, then by all means I’d recommend this company to you. But to make it as a career is something I’d advise against especially if you’re looking for something more ‘challenging’. The work is repetitive, there is a lack of... — read more

We need more old white men to collect their piles of money and find their way to the door. Hopefully someone who places value in employees as assets instead of costs to be cut will take over.
What’s this of a walk out tomorrow for more pay or union in stores. I think a union in all stores is great !!!!
