I have worked for Walgreen's for well over a decade, and up until Wasson took over we have always been on top, Rite Aid has always been the biggest looser teetering on the brink of total collapse. Now they are the winner and we are the looser? WTF??? Seriously how do Greg, Mark, Kermit, and Wade sleep at night knowing that they are running a 100 plus year fortune 100 company into the ground? I must admit I think I know how Wade gets to sleep at night. I have a growing appreciation for sippin'n the sauce too. Thanks WAG and "BE WELL"

Everything depends on where you live... There are no walgreens within 30 miles of me currently, the closest is 40 miles. I was an exa for 6 years and had to leave on my own and there are days i miss it and thought they were everywhere but where i moved to there arent any wags.. Actually there was one but it closed, no business.. People here like rite aid and rite aid is doing very well here. Now i work for rite aid, lol... I know a traitor but i have to eat, lol... If there was a wags i would go back but there is not so i cant. I actually did a survey on my own and would ask people if they heard of wags and most have not and the ones who have said they hated them. So yes it does depend on where you live. Where i moved from wags had bought out my old company and was doing great and rite aid was not, here it is just the opposite.
also former EXA

LOL!!!! I am also a former EXA of 9 years and since there are no wags here i also work for rite aid... Like you if given the chance i would love to go back, the money is so much better and i liked how we could control the merchandising for the store so it fit our customers... Now we have all these ends to set with 20 to 30 different products on them. I think they look crowded and junky... But like you we need to eat also, lol...
