It's great if you are able to work the majority of your shifts in the middle of the night
take your time
Know and learn the people you work with,before you start talking about personal stuff.
The corporation will follow its policies to a T - if they offer maternity leave, for example, you'll get everything that is in writing. You don't have to worry about that. Make sure, though, that you do the same - keep everything that is in writing. If they send an e-mail telling you that you have to make so many phone calls or get a certain score or rating, make a copy. The corporation will tell you that cusstomer health and safety is all important but it's all lip service. They will push so much responsibility on you - a million things a day that can't possibly get done in the time you have - and if a mistake is made, you'll be the one to take the fall. Keep records of everything and cover your butt!! Other than that, work hard to build your co-workers into a team. You're all in this crazy retail/pharmacy world together and a strong team is what will make it successful.
Get to know everyone and the work environment before voicing ideas or opinions.
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.
I have worked for Walgreens for almost a year now and I'm finally at a stable store. They only give 5 sick days a year. I asked to be placed part time because I'm sick all the time since I'm in my 1st trimester, still no luck at that. I started asking around 6 weeks and I'm already 10 weeks along and no sight of part time any time soon.
I worked at Costco for a couple of years while I was in college. I was in a small department and everyone was supportive and kind, but that probably varies from store to store. The management made a point of showing that they care about the employees through the high pay and good benefits. It was a good place for me to be, at least at that time in my life.
