Anyone seen the documentary about Wal-Mart? The similarities between them and Walgreens about employee treatment is astounding. Health care is available but unaffordable, black people and women not being promoted, purposely being short staffed, meet the numbers or else, no union, etc. I have worked in retail for 16 years, six of them with Walgreens. It is the absolute worst for how it treats employees, but I make 20 bucks an hour(til April) so I'm not going anywhere until then.
I was a manager at wal-mart and that documentary was mostly BS. Most of the Dept managers are female...the females could not hack being assistants because of the crazy work schedule and constant store tranferring that they mainly quit.....men were treated like this as well. It is called survival of the fittest and the females i worked with complained ALL the time, but yet could not do the resets and work that mostly did require a man as far as lifting and doing things in the back stockroom...sorry but the truth is the truth.....dont even get me started on the minority BS either....some intelligence is actually needed.....more so at wal mart then a little ole Walgreens store. People always want to be more then they are, but are always too lazy to work for it....they think because they are black or female that the position should be given to them as a right....you have the right to nothing in this world unless you earned it.
