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!
