    I worked at Walgreens full-time

    Pros

    Very professional and enthusiastic team members with abundant support from corporate level.

    Cons

    Not enough time to train entry-level team members in a protected environment. Some new technicians had to be trained in real setting, which is ok for non-peak hours.
