Walgreens, using their "new" culture as an excuse are really just getting rid of their older employees. The sad thing is the "employee relations" department is going along with it.
My last supervisor harassed me constantly at home and at work, told upper management lies about my work and in general made my life and a lot of the employees lives miserable. I took it because I really liked the company and thought I just had the bad luck of getting a couple of bullies for store managers and community leaders. My little 'I know everything even though my butt is in the office all of the time and none of the employees respect me because I'm such a ***' fired me after 13 years of Walgreens employment. The little *** just said that I got fired because "even though she did the best job she could" that I just didn't work to his standards.
At 56 I am out in the land of the unemployed, and even though I reported his mistreatment to loss prevention, the district manager and later employee relations, this know it all was able to exagerate and lie about me to the point that I got fired. I worked for the community leader for 5 ish years before I was transferred and on my evaluation the year before I got transferred, she rated me as could handle being a store manager at a store at the same volume as hers. Her store was the busiest store in the community. But yet my work doesn't satisfy the little worm, so he is allowed to fire me.
I really thought that someone in the company would see that justice was done, but no, that's not going to happen. Even though just now I called my former boss a little worm, never, never did anyone ever accuse me of being impolite.
I can only hope that I don't lose my house and my pets and that what comes round goes round for everyone in that company. I know that I will never step foot in a Walgreens again!
