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

Walgreens to Lay Off 10,000 Employees

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

Walgreens employee forum

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

No one to close

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.

T-b-cco Products and the Underage Cashier

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

Wait it out or leave?

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?
