RE:SCREWED A little advice, these ' register jockeys' as you call them were the ones you were supposed to 'manage' and THEM not YOU are the face and backbone of Walgreens. If you would have trained them, mentored them, and yes disciplined them when necessary, your biggest accomplishment wouldn't be that you are the stores most productive person, but that your employees are. Managing is getting people to realize their potential and teaching them that they are capable of learning. Now everyone has unique abilities, it was up to you to maximize those. I hope you realize that if you want to stay in management, otherwise you will only ever be a good worker. If you can learn to truly manage, then you can work in any field and succeed. Good luck to you.
This is by far the smartest and most rational point anybody has made.

as a manager i feel all of you have missed the importance. we all learn everyday and some better than others. we have sm that do nothing but make personel calls and some that stay in the office , you can go to some stores and the sm is on the floor with the empl. doing work themselves. my solan is: dont ask someone to do something your not willing to do.

Some cashier are untrainable. Guess what happen to a untrainable person. They get stuck at night where the sm won't have to deal with them. And yes there are untrainable employees.

As if there is any real hands on training ever going on at stores!When many stores have the flop lazy night manager that seeks to avoid the concept of work .Projecting blame on the Cashiers that have no choice to but to work is a lost cause.I am glad to see Walgreens shut down the feed bag grazing waste of money. And news flash its not the CASHIERS!Get working or Get out ! Gheesh!

I'm sure it's different from store to store, but sometimes it is the cashiers, especially the ones that have the attitude that they don't get paid enough to do more than the very minimum.
Some of the blame goes to the SM though. I can't tell you the number of times I've been around during an interview and the SM never once mentions that the job is a lot more than just standing at the register waiting for customers.
For example , we once had a new BA show up for work in a tight little skirt, stilettos, and dragon lady nails, totally unprepared to do anything physical. You should have heard her screech when she found out she had to climb a ladder to pull diapers from a bay. I think she lasted all of three days.

This one time there were two over weight employees that for every step they took they huff and puff. Took them forever to walk down the aisle. Felt bad for the mgt on duty. Lucky I don't do over nights. Have anyone notice that morning crews are usually very reliable. Yup case solved

Case closed both the subjects are fat and huff , puff and blow the loft house cookies down. The one slob was toooo lazy to open the perfume counter for a black man who thought it was a racist incident. When I came back from my break and he told me how offended he was , I called my manager over to speak with him. I so wanted to tell him it's not a race issue it's a lazy issue but to keep professional I let my acting supervisor handle the issue, that from the looks of things a year and a half later was never adressed.

please why stack totes like that ? It might br a workers comp issue waiting to happen. There is no reason for any girl to climb a ladder that high for product. A well run store would make that a standard.

Sometime I just do it to see an employee take it down. But other times it's because there is no room. I have a small stockroom. Rx wants theirs 4 high only I'm like thats bs.

wow - how nice that you do that! My store it runs short for months and pile it on, Cos is left a mess for days ,( I come back after 2 days working another job its left a mess) In 5 years I never had any help ever untill now.My manager is more concerned about not making photo/ asm do anything. Cos has to face the entire store plus make up for hyper call offs.
