Has Walgreens started the new uniforms already. More money out of the employees pocket book. Funny how they want to implement these changes and make the employee pay for poor quality uniforms.

The new uniforms roll out to the first stores who can get them in March. Everyone gets a voucher for one, just like the pharmacy techs do.
Cos is a pink t with a black coat.
I didn't look at RX, but I think it doesn't really change, just supplier.

I had no clue we were getting new uniforms. What are they supposed to be? This makes what, the 4th time they've changed uniforms on us? First the vests,which aren't really a uniform but you were supposed to wear them. Then the blue polos and button up shirts. Then the dark blue button ups and now more new ones??

They are doing it because no one looks the same anymore. You can't tell who works here or not. The front end has light blue shirts. Pharmacy same light blue scrubs. Managers have a vest and I think light blue button up (not entirely sure) and store managers white button up.

We have already had this change roll out in our market for almost a year now. You will get used to it. We all looked at it like "oh really ANOTHER uniform change????" But it has worked out fine. Just bare with it, it will probably change AGAIN. U know walgreens can not make up their freakin minds for s**t. We are actually test dummies dressed as employees

Cos uniforms should be neat , clean line, black blazer or jacket that actually fit right, not some tee-shirt 5 times too big or more ill fitting uniform concepts that look dumpey , defeating the entire purpose of even having uniforms.

I agree. T-Shirts should not be worn at any position. Although they ARE comfortable they're not really professional. jmo

People could care less what people who are ringing out their olives, pics or Rx are wearing. The only thing more ridiculous is hearing our cashiers, photo techs, etc. whine about not looking "professional" when working.

Newsflash....you are not "professionals". You work in entry level positions that require no specialized education or skills often associated with "professionals". Don't get me wrong, many work very hard and a great employees but "professionals" you are not. Retail is full of tasks that are dirty, physical and messy. T-shirts are comfortable, clean up easy and can be replaced cheap so they serve their purpose. I think the bigger lesson here is that if you want to be "professionals" go to college and acquire unique skills and knowledge that the average person can't be learn or be taught with "on the job training". Best of all..not only will you be able to look "professional" you most likely willbe able to earn more money, job security, be able to support yourself and family, save for retirement...etc.

Managers wearing vests with "white shirts" was the dumbest move ever. Hard to look presentable when your white shirt is now grey or because of resets, salting sidewalk, receiving truck, etc. Then again your not supposed to be doing any of that "grunt work" anymore. Yeah right. Well at least they didn't say managers had to wear a full suit...yet!

It's about time Walgreens try doing something about uniforms.I always got stuck working with people in Cos. that wore no makeup and dressed like a busted down version of The Harlem Globe Trotters![Go figure that person would ring up $40.00 a shift?)Cosmetics are visual, no one wants to buy products or take advice from slobs that don't even have the socail inteligence to know what proper work attire should be. Professional style of dress is the indusrty standard.Com ing to work neat and clean is part of any entry level position. I thought the tee-shirts enabled the lack of care for personal hygene and grooming.

SMs, ASMs, ASMTs and SFLs - Grey vests with blue pin strips that have a red W on them. You can wear either blue or white button up shirts with a collar underneath. Slacks must either be black or slate grey. Men must wear ties.

Front cashier and Photo - Robin blue shirts. Women's are fitted and you should order at least one size up. They are not allowing women to order in male sizes. So on second thought, you might consider ordering two sizes up. The material is similar to athletic shirt feel - think nicer Nike shirts and Under Armour.

Cosmetics - Black button up shirts with long sleeves. Fitted undershirt that is light pink for women or slate grey for men. The undershirts are see-through and not made to be worn alone. You should consider ordering up a size for the undershirts for comfortably. They are super soft, but can start to get balls on them after routine washings.

Pharmacists - White coats with long sleeves that have a red W on them with a white shirt underneath. Men must wear ties.

Pharmacy techs - Robin blue colored scrubs with a red W on them. Women have the option of fitted or a gender neutral cut that is boxier.

Full time employees get two vouchers a year, this includes vouchers for two ties for men. Part time employees get one voucher a year. New hires are allowed one voucher.

To add to this, Photo Specialists get three vouchers for whatever reason.

Until the uniform program rolls out in your market, you are responsible for your own uniforms.

We have already been told not to worry about required white shirts, since it's asinine. We have also been told as long as you aren't in jeans, any pant is fine.

I haven't seen anything about the number of vouchers everyone gets, will have to look into it tonight.
