I like what I seeso far out of this program. The daily management tip is great and useful. I've heard the courses won't be available for the entire chai for a few months, but it'll be neat. Just navigate the website and look at the curriculum,areas of study, etc.the only downsides are 1. 10%off tuition discount is lousy. 2. you have to pay for some courses. Most retailers have a tuition reimbursement plan.Apparantly Walgreens doesn't.

I heard of this and have seen it on storenet, I can't sit in the office looking at it. They have a problem when I sit in the office just to request time off. Sm doesn't mention this at all. What is it? What's the difference between what they are teaching on walgreens university and regular district training?

I'm starting to believe that's absolutely true.
