Walgreens Corporate screwing with employees.

Mar 16, 2012
review #305293

Walgreens is in the process of of changing job titles having employees doing the same work, cutting their pay and changing schedules. If employees don't like it QUIT. This is their main goal make People mad and quit without thinking. This is what Walgreens wants so it can pay their employees $10 an hr. No more Executive or Assistant Managers, store leaders or group leaders. Will have keys to open and close stores, same responsibilites under a new title. Employees can you say UNION-UNION-UNION. or a Civil or Class Action lawsuit. In my opinion Walgreens puts misinformation on it's web site. This is their way to single out and traget employees. The following resources are available to all employees to make sure that they have an effective way to express complaints, concerns or suggestions for improvement. Being able to listen and communicate directly with our employees makes the company stronger and able to respond to issues quickly, without the unnecessary bureaucracy and delay of a formalized grievance process.

Open Door Policy - Walgreens believes in the dignity of its employees and their right to a prompt, equitable and sympathetic review of any question or difference of opinion an employee may have concerning their work situation. Employees may take their questions or concerns to either their direct supervisor or move up through the chain of command to get resolution.

Hotline System for reporting problems and concerns in the workplace - 1-800-666-5677 to call 24 hours a day. A Loss Prevention Supervisor will promptly investigate these types of claims. UNTRUTH

This company has taken away all the benefits sick days ,bonuses and all other perks the CEO is a *** bag but if every employee from the stores to the DCS plan a national walk out day and put pressure to have the CEO resign it can work especially with national media coverage. IF anyone knows how to star a petition on line to plan this I would be happy to sign as well as my co-workers. we are in the process of forming a union. we have the power but have to stick together even a class act laws suit for unfair labor practice ,maybe we don't win but the pressure would force this *** bag to step down.

walgreen is the worst company to work for. i am an sfl. the last meeting i went to. i had to seat down and listen to people from corporate telling me how i am not a manager yet i am expected to be doing manager works. that's their way of telling you that although as an sfl you doing all the managers work but the don't have no intention to pay you the decent salary that you deserve. they don't have any consideration for their employees. i went to work last night to find out that i have been transfer the next day to another store. without any notice or reason on why i have been transfer.

I have worked for Walgreens 8 years in those 8 years I've had 10 different store managers. I started as a cashier and am now an ASM. I have gotten good yearly reviews around 3.5 until this year with a new manager a 29 yr old male,fresh out of his momma,s house. I work in Alaska and in the past couple months all the managers I've worked with have moved back to the lower 48. Giving me no chance at a good review. So I have to take a 7$ cut in pay. I gave my 2 week notice. I ask all people who read this to go to a different store. Walgreens will *** over.

back to school...avoiding illness that may cause meningitis and death, lice control is mandatory in all school children. walgreen has new task pharmacy directors 2014 any prescription department with just one lice seen at a distance by diresctors suspension of unclean pharmacy personnel. good example for the the world who susoend directors with more than one lice if they can not see themselves. take action before you get suspended bias the rx is rid shampoo you get generic lotion by technitians bye bye lice no one really saw and bye bye job who train them to diagnose if the job is to fill doctor orders

I would dare anyone in district to work at their stores in the pharmacy for one month. Not as an extra but on actual workflow and complete all that is expected senior tech style. Good luck because your senior techs are not getting the job done these days. Staff cut way to much and its going to back fire soon.

I heard an employee in my store talking about a friend from another store having to use a ladder to get high up merchandise and stock. She was telling me that Walgreens has been told several times the ladder needs replacing. It's being held together with duck tape. If anyone falls and the ladder crumbles I wonder if Walgreens is going to sweep the entire ordeal under a rug and fire the employee. The store in question is the 24 hour store in Fort Oglethorp GA.

SFL slave-for-less

Jul 12 Madison, Wisconsin

What a crime for a wealthy company like walgreens to create the SFL position - SFL's are expected to be managers & run the store doing 99% of the work starting at the high salary of $11/hour. It's insulting & degrading to call these hard-working staff "floor leads!" They are also on-call during non-business hours when a store alarm is triggered. My manager has their cell phone off so walgreens security ends up calling one of the SFL's to come in at 3 am, thanks so much walgreens! No wonder the interviewee for a SFL position walked out the other day when they heard what was expected of them for $11/hour.
The company is a great example of modern greed & fascism!

OK so someone doesn't want the truth to get out. I posted a comment about DM in Chatt and it's gone. I said it's not how you do in job performance it's who you do or who's doing you. Ask BB from Chattanooga district office he knows his way around.

This DM BB was a married man messing around with another employee. Not sure if she got pregnant before or after the divorce but he's married to the bimbo now and proud of his new offspring. How has he kept his job when others with much smaller offences have been fired? I always known the DM of any pharmacy to be in store for inventory, not this guy. He does nothing but sit and change all of the preformance elvaluations to prevent the oldest and most dependable people from getting a bonus. BB is one POS.

My husband is a pharmacist for Walgreens and has been for some time. He is owed so much vacation time that he'll never be able to use it all. He has requested time off and every request for vacation is declined. The DM one B B has refused to hire enough staffing to cover vacation time while he sits on his behind and does nothing to deal with the serious short staffing problems. Tech hours are cut to the point of being ridiculous and very dangerous. Is B B getting a larger bonus to cut down staffing??
The policies are in question about one of the techs that has more write ups the any ten people combined and still has her job. She has already played the sexual harassment card over a pharmacy manager she had consensual sex with and when the pharmacist refused to leave his wife and the entire affair blew up in her face, she pulled out the card. Though now married and pregnant with her second child she continues to get written up and causes a great many problems at work. Her excuse now is BUT I'M PREGNANT and don't feel good. She does NOTHING and is constantly being told to get to work but does exactly nothing. How is it that she gets away with *** that anyone else would have been fired over many times. Who does she have something on or who is she still doing? Why has Walgreens allowed this to continue??
The store my husband works in does an average of 700 scripts a day and on the 1st of the month it isn't impossible for that store to do over 1200 in one day. There is no

Walgreen is the worst place to work for. The dm changed my daughter's work location 48 away and her work schedule with out informing or asking her. She is with this company for more than 10 years. She has two babies one year apart at age. She has set up thei day care according to her current
Now how she can change kids daycare timing and days over night because her new location and hours start next day.
What a pathetic place to work for.

I have been with Walgreens for 3 1/2 years. I'm a CPhT in the pharmacy. I have floated at several stores and worked at 2 other stores "permanently" in an effort to be transferred to this location in order to be closer to my home. I was only transferred when I brought it to the attention of management that my RPh manager at my original store was stalking me and acting inappropriately with patients in the immunization room (she bragged about it in texts that she sent me). Her controls were always coming up short as well, but that's another story. She is no longer with the company, and not by her own choice. I finally get transferred to the store that I wanted to be at since my start with the company, only to find a store manager that lies constantly, co-workers that are afraid to call the police on abusive and threatening customers, district managers that have PERSONALLY seen these customers in action and not addressed this issue or protected their employees and they have cut hours so drastically that we are broke and exhausted. I personally overheard one district manager tell someone in the pharmacy what we should tell the customer about the long wait times, which was a complete lie. He wanted us to lie to the customers! I'm leaving the company, by my own choice, in the next two weeks. If you want to be safe, treated like a human being and make an honest wage for your labor, then this is definitely NOT the store/company for you!

Thank you! I experienced the same thing at Walgreens, one customer actually said, after sexually harrassing me on the phone that he was coming to the store to find me. When I told my manager he didnt do anything about it. Said it was an "over reaction" I left by my own choice as well. I will never shop at another Walgreens again.
