Walgreens Corporate screwing with employees.

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

Walgreens is in the process of eliminating all shift lead positions and assigning lower wage employees into "key holder" positions. They are also getting ready to close their pharmacy departments in order to comply with the federal trade commission approved buyout of riteaid (in order to avoid a monopoly). There will be no store managers but instead will have one lower paid asm (assistant store manager) per store over looking scheduling, deposits, safe counts, etc. There will be the equivalent of a "community leader" acting as overall manager of multiple stores. Walgreens already has stores in test markets working in this capacity with more to follow starting jan. 1 2017.

weird... it was like Walgreens hacked into that and added the last 1/2. Walgreens SUCKS *** when it comes to employment. They have insurance that MAKES you use their pharmacy for your pharmacist. They give 0 options to use another. Lemme know of a Union / class lawsuit that starts so I can get back to my 20+ year pharmacist.

So I have been a walgreens employee for almost 5 years making *** money. I was told a couple of weeks ago that anyone in the company who makes less 9 dollars an hour would be bumped up to 9. I am making the same amount as a kid who started less than a month ago. All of my reviews and raises have been ***. When i went to my store manager, she made me feel like an *** for not being grateful for my raise. Why am i the *** for being mad that i am so under valued?

I am the wife of a Walgreens assistant manager and man had Walgreens *** us over. I barely see my husband and on his day off guess what the fat *** store manager still makes him come in to work for free. If my husband refuses they threaten him with his promotion. It's ***! There is a *** Blizzard today with an expected 18" of snow and they're still making him come in. Great job on caring about the wellbeing of your employees Walgreens

So typical of Walgreens not giving a d@mn about its workers or their well-being, which is *** because without the people giving good customer service and keeping the shelves stocked, customers wouldn't come in and keep the stores going. I hope your husband made it through the storm ok.

I've been at Walgreens for 2 years now, and I have to say I've never dealt with some of the *** I'm dealing with at my previous jobs. For one, asking someone to cover your break or lunch causes so much drama. You would think I had raped someone's dog or shot their cat! I could see if I was nasty, but every request was always polite, and I have always covered others without a problem because I like helping people (customers and coworkers alike).
Don't get me started on the lazy store manager, assistant managers and shift lead. Out of those 5, only one does any actual work, and he does way more than his share!
Training? What's that? I've seen new people get thrown onto the floor or in cosmetics with no training at all! As for the front end, you get like a couple of hours of training, and then you're on your own. I'm not talking about ppls, I'm talking about the hands-on-training that every new person has to go through.
We have 3 part-timers under 18 in a store that sells liquor and cigarettes. Yeah, that's smart.
If you come to work sick, nobody cares. If you call off, even if you only do it once a year, you get treated like ***.
Thank God I'll likely get out soon. Retail is bad no matter where you work, but some of the Walgreens managers seriously need to start managing and not let the lunatics run the asylum.

My position as hps was taken away along with a $2 hourly paycut. New title is customer associate, yet still doing the same work and the same responsibilities as photo head specialist.I complained and was told if you don't like it quit.All this after 30 years service with great attendance,great customer service and great employee.I kept arguing with store manager and she fired me.Now they don't want to pay unemployment benefits.Walgreens used to be employee friendly m,but now all they want is to get rid of long term good employees.

You never argue with your superiors. Your store manager was following orders.

I am sick and tired of my terrible manager Danita florez. She is grouchy moody all the time and uses a mono tone when telling us to do things. She makes all of us feel *** when we ask her questions.
Walgreens has lost family values we are forced to pick a holiday to work, in wich we are open all day. While corporate is at home enjoying their holiday.
