I have been with the company for 11 years ever since I jumped ship from a competitor. I was in management with other company and got so burned I told myself never to do it again! My advice to myself on my first day with Walgreens would be to forget that other experience entirely and GO FOR IT!! I finally accepted promotion to Shift Lead 3 years ago and although the pay is subpar for the work that is required and the hours are often miserable, it's not the nightmare I lived through ( barely ) with other company. Other women should come on board knowing they need to move up as quickly as possible and that my particular position is heavily task oriented with time restrictions on said tasks even though you must also perform management functions and be ever conscious of customer service at the same time!

It's taken me 4 years to get promoted to assistant store manager. This is a great progression but only because I've worked mostly 10 hour days, came in on days off, made sure mine and others duties are done when they fail to do it just to keep the store looking good. I've worked 6 shifts in a row because others haphazardly called in (managers, even store managers) and nobody would be there to cover the store to stay open. I got nothing in return. Nothing. My store manager never says thank you for all my over and above work habits. Get to where you are now, but now just ride the wave. Relax. Let it come to you. IF it doesn't, move on.

you can only do what is humanly possible. and if you are in pharmacy, just do what you can at a pace that is safe. too much multitasking leads to errors. people will wait 45 minutes for a pizza but not 15 for medication. so take your time, do it right and shake it off!

As with most jobs, you get what you put into the company. Women are treated fairly with Walgreens.

This company is always in need of people willing to start at just above minimum wage. They used to be competitive with their main competitor, but now the competitor pays a dollar more per hour to start. Due to their low rate of pay, and the workload they ask for, they will hire anyone who has average intelligence. They had better get back to being a secure reliable employer instead of cutting costs and trying to become competitive with big box stores- this is not walgreens strength. If its not broken, please dont fix it. Treat your employees as well as you ask them to treat your customers.

Be prepared to accept change. Know what politics are in play and when to play them.

I think women are treated fairly. Many are promoted to managerial positions. However, I would advise to be careful about gossiping because somehow, somebody knows somebody who knows somebody.
