This company is a shit hole. Their policy is profits first, everything else second. They don't give a fuck if a customer needs help, because they want everything stocked and on the shelves despite customers waiting on line, one the phone etc. The employees are overworked and underpaid for the bullshit they go through. The workload is never ending because once something is done, they'll find some menial tasks for you. In case anyone is wondering, yes, the place is extremely short staffed and they want to keep it that way. And for what? cheaply made goods from China that breaks in a day or two? The Walgreens I worked at were full of drama and BS politics. Certain employees don't pull their weight, while people like me have to to pick up their slack and more. Despite picking up their slack, doing one menial task after another, being reprimanded for helping customers out instead of listening to my manager, they complain that I was working too slow and too busy talking with other employees. Well I hope enough employees will finally get sick of their bullshit and customers will get fed up with their shitty customer service and cheap sweatshop products and then the company will finally crumble.
Did I write this post, because I deal with the same problems! I cant breathe wrong without having managers screaming at me over nothing. This crooked greedy company is such a hell hole and I cant wait to get out of it! Its full of nothing but drama and DISCRIMINATION! I should have reported my manager years ago, but instead I have been making notes of everything discriminatory they do, and I cannot wait to retaliate! I'm worked into the ground while others get away with standing around doing nothing! I'm sick of it, and one day they will hear about it!

Yes, i still have a lawsuit going on. Had carpal tunnel over a year ago on both hands,both hands have severe nerve damage and i have been with this company for 18 yrs and they claim it's not work related. Handed in a doctors note stating no pushing,pulling and can't lift anything over 10 lbs,but they don't care!
I understand this from my experience. Five years ago I worked on a ladder not safely, and fell head-first to the floor with broken head and seven weeks coma. I will not blame Walgreens for this because I did not remember what really caused it. But I later was conscious of other dangers, including my work in the same location procedure that I fell from. For these dangers and staff cut so far that more mistakes had to be made, I just quit!

walgreens, cvs sucks. they are all the same. they will find a way to fire you. They will play favorites, they get to be in bad moods but you cannot be in a bad mood. they will pretend to be your friend and then fire you. They will hire you under false promises. CVS is the same. Coporate gives you the whole runaround on why you cannot get hours. Even if you cannot do a better job. EXA's managers, etc. They get paid a shit ton of money but they are worthless. All they ever want to do is sit on their butts in the office and stare at the schedules all day long.. corporate empires are a bunch of evil ass whole 25 year old racist/sexist pigs. Both men and women. They don't like white or black people. they only care aboutthem selves. All they care about is getting the damn tags up. Making up rules and finding ways to fire people that are totally unjust. They are the theives. They let customers steal all their money away and find ways for employees to be thieves. Corporate finds ways to steal money from customers, employees, etc. They pay managers to sit on their asses and employees 9.00/hour while managers can make over 1500 a paycheck at least. Bull shit. They have dumb asses working in their pharmacies that cannot listen to their customers. How many timesmust someone tellthem you only want one month? They are all rude over paid. They never know what they are talking about and gives you a different answer. Thank god cvs is going under. Walgreens should also. I hope they do. They are a bunch of good-for-nothing schiemers and ass holes. The emloyees (cashiers) are not technitians or magic makers but walgreens wants them to be. I think all of them should go on strike. I know people that have been hired there and their hours go down while they hire kiss-asses to be supervisors when they don't know shit. Then the real hard working employees get treated like crap. I have been in both cvs and walgreens listeningto their managers talking shit to their employees yelling at them calling them idiots ad retards right in front of me. The employees have every right to sue them. ASS holes!

i worked for walgreens for almost 3 years and was recently terminated for using coupons...the loss pervention supervisor said it was coupon fraud. correct me if im wrong but if the register takes a coupon then your not at fault... right? well my store manager and assistant manager did this also.so why was i terminated? im seriously thinking about a lawsuit for deprivation of character... let me know what you think. and for those of you thinking about working for walgreens... DONT!
OMg I was fired for the same damn thing. They try to pull this shit so they canget their money with the stupid charges. I cannot believe that they have gotten away with it for this long. CVS didn't make up this rule. I wish I could be notified if there is a lawsuit against walgreens for this and I'd sign something that I could get some money out of what all I went thru. They called me a theif and everything. I don't know if it went on my record or not. But I wish to be notified so I could get some money out of it. Rediculous. Let me know..

Mark- so you still stand behind the company after all this shit is going down? Take a look at all the lawsuits. wait til someone gets angry enough to take all the money from walgreens and take walgreens to court. Then all those managers exas corprte ass holes etc would be sittng in the mud. Wouldn't be so fun then would it?

I have had enough of walgreens BS!! I am one of their best employees that they even have left and I had to move to a city 45 min to an hour away. Now they have officially fucked me over in every way imaginable. I have been trying to transfer for the last 6 months and they keep giving me one excuse after another. I don't know what to say or do anymore. Then they try to make it seem like I'm the bad guy for calling other stores because I need to transfer. They tell me they will help me transfer but then do something to try and hold me back from transferring. They never fire people because they do not want to pay people unemployment so they try to make ppl quit, so my advice if u been working there for s while just call in don't quit cuz they won't fire you gauranteed. They ate taking advantage because they know I'm a good employee but I don't wanna drive that far ESP in winter but frankly they don't give two shits!!!!!!

I was a store manager forced out because I put a Picture of a "stripper" on my Facebook Page. They claim I signed a agreement that I would not become freinds with other employees.They have never asked or had me signoff on anything of this matter.
The EXA ay my store saw this picture & claimed to be offended. They had me come to the District Office & gave me a verbal warning. They told me to remove any & all Walgreens Employees as Facebook freinds. I did as I was told that evening. the following week they called me back and terminated me. this is something that was not even done a work. Any info please E-Mail me at [email protected] with any advise.

My manager sits at her computer all day and does no work. I caught her on her cell phone the other day talking to a friend about her apartment.

We have no EXA but we have an assistant that thinks she is in charge of everyone. She even tells other managers what to do.

My hours are being cut and I won't say why because they might reveal who I am but they are being cut for BS reasons.

My second manager wrote me up for something and sent it to corporate but the kicker is what he wrote me up for NEVER happened. He also never asked me about the situation that happened and he lied on the paper he sent to corporate.

I had the audacity to complain about a manager a few years ago and ever since then I have been harassed. Don't believe them for a second that there is no retrabution at walgreens.

there is no 4 way test, no open door policy and retribution does exist.I have been gone (from Walgreens) for seven months and I am still pissed at the injustice. CEOs need to take a hard look at lower management but they will turn their greedy heads away before change is made.

I cant tell you this...if a manager ever gets in my face and yells and screams and cusses at me they will be shitting out their teeth....I am a MGT and I do not treat anyone any less then I want to be treated and also will not tolerate any other manager doing it....All I can say is if any manager feels froggy please leap my way, lol...

Walgreens is a good example of the worst of the worst in american businesses! They are greedy, unethical, all of their management are complete liars, the upper management are nothing but a bunch of dominating control freaks to try to OWN the middle managers and treat them with total disrespect and as if they are terror suspects, they use and abuse people and treat them like slaves, they also try to use mind control techniques as they do in the service to gain control of others and "break their will", so they can dominate and control them. I would not recommend them to my worst enemy as an employer. They need to learn GOD is in control..they are not, but most of them are so immoral and unethical I am sure this lesson was never taught to them. They also have NO management skills or abilities, the place is run like a circus, with a total lack of professionalism.
Amen to that!!You are so right..I know the truth.As seen with my own eyes for over 15 years now.It has gotten so bad,It is sick & down right pathetic!!It really does go to show in reality they are not people..meaning the ruthless ones(they know who they are)Sad thing is if they would just realize how they are..it could become a great company but they dont want it to be.They are in denial of there ways & before too long I'm sure they will be out of business.
They play mind games & lie thru there teeth.I may have been young when I first started but I have learned my lesson not to trust them or beleive anything they say.I have eyes behind my head & watch everything that goes on.Basically I wanted to tell you that you are correct.I will always work very hard because that's the way I was raised,am at the point where I don't care what assistant managers or anyone thinks of me,or the drama that goes on because I have finally come to realize I do not have to take this or them with me when I finally go to my resting place.I will never let them steal my character or the truth out of my soul..Never!!! I go to work at this place & always come home feeling fantastic about myself for giving my best no matter how wrong I get treated,because I will no longer let them bring me down with their poor miserable attitude & harsh unethical treatment.Nice to know God see's the truth of all us hard loyal employees,until this changes for the better,please take this advice,we dont need them to tell us were great loyal hard working honest human beings,we know that from our hearts.Amen!!!Hopefully someday they will wake up & realize the value good employees & customers are to them..but if not, just remember "The Real Truth Speaks!!"

I worked for walgreeens for five years i was called in many time late night because photo machines were alarming and tech didnt know what to do i was never paid for my time. i was shifted from photo to cos to pharmacy where they had me fill scripts and type on my first day, after i commented on it i was moved again to head cashier i was fired for not scanning a coupon i manually entered it and i sold a carton of cigs to a customer ringing it up as packs instead of carton being she was buying for a retirement home and all the older ladies wanted to see pack price so they knew they werent being ripped off. i was told i broke policy and was not given a chance i was fired and told not to bother applying for unemployment they wouldnt let me get it, i have been fighting for a year and a half to no avail. wrongful termination and worse is what walgreens does.

I'm with you. Your story is so typical of Walgreens, however, I hope you don't quit fighting. I'm going through the exact same thing only I quit rather than get fired. Stupid me! Maybe, we all need to cowboy up and pickett the f***ing stores nationwide!!

Is anyone from Iowa? I have a pending case for work comp. due to injury at work. They have not paid one dime on anything. I did go back and one of the mgt told me to watch my a** cuz the head manager was looking for any reason to fire me. I think the hole city needs to know how this company treats their emp. Also one mgt lost his job due to he said he would not have anything to do with my hanging!!!
