I have the unfortunate title of Pharmacy Technician for Walgreens.When starting this "company" that claims they are the #1 Pharmacy, I thought well, I am a good tech and a hard worker and have a lot to bring to the table. The training they give their employees is *** and the people who have "Gone as far as they want to" (Walgreen's Slogan for employees) are rude, have the personality of a wet sock, and treat others badly. Walgreen's boast about their "open door policies, and their "code of conduct" that they expect all employees to follow. Another load of ***!If you make a suggestion, or a complaint, you are immediately on the black list and no one, not district managers, store managers, etc., do anything.
Another one of the store slogans is "Company is coming"; they always want the stores to "look clean" in case someone from the corporate office shows up; Ever been in the restrooms? Or better yet, the employee lunch rooms?These are both disgustingly filthy, which is why I won't use the bathrooms or eat in the breakrooms.
As far as their H1N1 vaccines go, all I can say is "buyer beware." Any injection that a person is given should be drawn up in a "sterile" manor, and this does not happen. You are better off to go the doctor to receive this. If your insurance covers it at Walgreen's, it will cover it at the MD office. Walgreen's will do anything to corner the market or make a buck, even if a consumer pays in the end, and guess what, YOU DO!
Walgreen's can boast to be America's number one Pharmacy, but the sad truth is that they long since left the original vision of founder Charles Walgreen, and drive away consumers daily. They nothing more than a corporation...............
I can honestly say, that if you do come in, this is one Technician who will do their best to help and serve you to the best ability I have, and treat you with respect. There are some worthy Technicians and Pharmacists, but only some.
As for for the rest................
