Hello

Does anyone know how to access the Walgreens University portal from home? When I try the link on the employee at home site it does not work.

Has anyone else been able to access this new learning feature from home yet?

Is there a special web address needed?

Thanks for your help!

You can't really access anything on storenet from home if it's a link. Walgreens doesn't know what they're doing when it comes to storenet at home.

SM has not shared one bit about this. Any info would be great about actual details. Already googled for main ideas.

I poked around it a little bit tonight. By the looks of it wag is going to give you a 10% discount at abunch of second rate "universities" to try and better yourself so your not stuck at a dead end retail job.
I have a really hard time thinking wags is just doing this out of the goodness of their hearts Im sure there is some sort of kickback or good PR scheme at play.

Wow 10%. Who cares?

My SM was all excited about this. She went on and on about how she would be taking classes so would not be spending less time at work.

I was told Wag U was for management only. I said, "Not according to the press release I read online which specifically mentioned pharmacy technician training."

Wag u is just another now typical publicity stunt that has gotten tiresome and repetitive at this point. Another look how good we are to our employees joke.....

You can access Walgreens University from home by:

Employees @ Home ( employee.walgreens.com ; authenticator ID required)
-> About Me -> Career Development -> Walgreens University

There is a link on the homepage of Employees @ Home to it, but it does not work. You have to go through the Career Development section to access the correct link.

Currently,(if you work in a store, not in corporate) the self-service/store section is dry. You can't really access much because it can only be seen on Walgreens computers. What you can see are the news and info on the partnerships to the other universities.

My SM says she has talked to the one person in our area that will be doing the Walgreens specific training (separate from the 10% discount for actual college credit courses) and he has already told her that local classes will be extremely limited which will make the criteria extremely specific for who an SM can even recommend (no guarantee if/when they might be accepted). Basically, she says she was told to not even bother going through the process until if/when there are more trainers/classes added.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
