I know for the past few years they have had a hiring freeze for DTR and were going to outsource most of it. They have done that in my area when a new store gets wired or rewired.

I'm not surprised. Instead of using the knowledge and expertise of Walgreens IT employees, we are cutting them to use clueless consulting firms where their employees get paid $100/hr and produce inferior programming.

a lot of companies are outsourcing their departments. It is more cost effective. I am surprised it took this long. My cousin and a friend of mine are both it jugheads and they both were paid off twice from different companies because of this same issue.

the same happened with accounting outsourced overseas. most companies are doing this now as a cost savings measure. there is no other way to say it, but it sucks for people. store positions being cut and my feeling is corporate and field management cuts are required to curb the financial losses. the rumors are not pleasant to hear at all.

It's all about quantity (cost savings) rather than quality. Gotta make up for Wasson's 36% raise somewhere. Why not have it in inferior programming, hardware, and software? After all, what company relies on IT these days, right?
