Have you guys signed secrecy agreements or what? It seems any information relating to your market is sealed. Why the secrecy?

Guess the people that took SFL positions in Phoenix (Twilight Zone) are not technologically savy.

GREAT IDEA, whom shall we approach? "Hi may I speak to your key holder?" I guarantee on Saturday night there won't be an ASM or Store Manager.

Haha! Call and ask for a manager. Do ya think someone would ever pick up? They must be totally brainwashed since none of them seem to even post on this blog....

I'm friends with an EXA in Phoenix. She transferred out there from the St. Louis market about 5 years ago. I asked her about it and I didn't get a lot of feedback. It wasn't even tested in all stores in Phoenix, just a communit or two... She made it sound like they were writing people up for ridiculous offenses (5 mins late!) to speed up the attrition process.

It's true. I'm in the Phoenix market, although not in the same district/community as the pilot stores. It's only 2 communities doing it and there's a gag order.

Cos and photo doing returns and exchanges of not more that $25.00, beauty advisor handling hallmark, heard past beauty advisor left (oh and she was good at what she does, and pretty too), left due to some asm frontline remarks , which I heard was not taken seriously by sm, big loss, had about 6 turn overs since former ba left--no one wants to work in that walgreens store, people apply and quit, exa's asking for transfers--and the worse part heard 3 as in 3 employees passed away in less than a year,they all had cancer , people fired for dishonesty but allowed to come in the store and purchase--sm allows, thought there was a ruling it will take a year before a terminated employee can step in the store--but sm did not care---one hell of a circus out there---so guys we better be happy at where we are---

Sooo, to sum up your semi-literate gossipy (probably a beauty advisor) rant, morale is low aout there in the AZ.

God help us all if this is the type of person the pheonix pilot is being tested with.

Aout = the new "out"
Pheonix = the new "Phoenix"

A nice "up-yours" to "semi-literate" people.

FYI – I have listed some comments that I have seen over the past several months made to specific discussion threads on the Walgreens Forum. I gave the link for each discussion thread. If I wrote “Phoenix Pilot” next to the comment number, the comment pertains specifically to the Pilot. You can jump pages to the page that has the comment. Hope this helps people catch up to what has been written so far on this forum.

In Phx, but that doesn't sound like something they are doing in my store. Nothing has changed with management in the front of the store.
