Working for Walgreens is very stressful, from the entry position all the way up to your store manager. As a cashier, especially working mid afternoon to night time, you play very many roles all at once. It's not just 2 to 4 roles, it's more like 2 to 7 roles and that's just at the entry level position that you only get paid minimum wage for.
When you first start working for them it's part time, then after a year it goes to full time. After a year of being with the company you get a 35 cent raise and you better pray that minimum wage doesn't end up going up after getting that raise because if it does your raise just went bye-bye and you're starting all over again at minimum wage.
You also better pray that the store that you work at's hours don't get cut in half a couple different times after becoming full time, because then you're not working full time hours anymore, you're back to working part time hours again when you're still considered a full time employee. This is what I currently deal with while working for Walgreens.
The only 3 things that are keeping me there is 2 of the 3 shift leads are super nice, easy to talk to and easy to work with. The third reason is the reason why I ever started working customer service 24 years ago, the repeat regular customers that are so amazingly supportive of what I do and how I treat them. I would've quit a long time ago if those 3 reasons didn't exist. I've been working for the company for almost a year and half.
Awesome Shift Leads, Supportive Repeat Regular Customers.
