Featured Review

Former Employee - Customer Service Associate & Cashier

I worked at Walgreens Boots Alliance full-time

Pros

Had a great boss while I was at the company. Work was manageable.

Cons

They pushed out my boss a few days before my last day. He wasn't meeting some corporate benchmark despite being great at his job. The company was also cutting overall hours from the store budget,... meaning we had less people to work any given timeframe. We were overworked and arguably underpaid for it. That's pretty much the state of the USA's economy in a nutshell, however.

Advice to Management

Pay your employees a living wage. Hire and staff adequate people for each shift. Don't stress your employees so much!

Current Employee - Deputy Manager

I have been working at B&M Retail full-time

Pros

Great colleagues. Job is safe for future. Always room for progress in the company, start from general assistant and work up in the business. Help is always available should you need it. Fantastic... range of products and always getting better!

Cons

Pay is on the low side, but still worth a role within b&m

Advice to Management

Always ensure proper training is given.
