Walgreens should just concede on this lawsuit, switch all EXA's to hourly, and pay them less. That would solve the problem.

Indirectly, that is already what's happened to employees all over the world anyway. The lawsuits and regulations just cause companies to reduce the amount of money they spend on payroll in other ways. So all you whining about how much Walgreens is paying you- just remember, it is lawsuits like this that contributed to your low pay to begin with.

More people reaping what theyre sowing.

im not am mgt, im just making a point that everyones bit**ing about working when theres people that dont have jobs or people that work 2 jobs and get paid less then exa's but you guys are crying about working, even if you guys do win and get your "big pay day" you dont think a company would find a way to fire you when you get a suit aghinst them? its not really worth it
Retaliation lawsuit is whole other type of lawsuit. If anyone gets fired for speaking their mind, it's retaliation.

That's why California stores I've been to look like crap.
Our store hasn't had an EXA for over a year, and our SM is the CL so she is rarely in the store, even so our store looks and runs great. It's about delegating responsibilities and managing employees, not having an EXA at the store for 50+ hours a week.
Agree

Completely agree. As an EXA I was always told to be there before the SM got there and not to leave until the SM left. I was scheduled to work 50 hours every week, but more during seasonal promotions, and even more over the winter holidays, even thought the schedule would only show 44 hours. I received only 6-8 weekends off every year. Even when all projects, truck, task lists were completed the SM's I worked for always wanted me to stay. I never argued and put in a lot of unpaid hours, I never choose to stay, I was told to stay if I wanted to be promoted. I know a majority of the EXA's out there have the same story. Now people are calling EXA's winers, come on, try doing it for 7 years. I did all this with hopes to make SM, I had good reviews, I won a majority of the show and sells. More importantly I was better manager than most SM. Fortunately I never got promoted, for I'm in a new profession now and I love it! You better believe I'm going to cash in in thud settlement!

you dont think that well do you? if they out right say were getting rid of you because of the lawsuit would be concidered "retaliation" there is plenty of other ways for someone to get fired and on top of that being exa's your main goal is to get promoted and have your own store so your telling me you guys think having a lawsuit against your employers is going to help you get promoted? i dont about you but the $100 you will recive isnt worth you pay check! good luck thugh, see you in the help wanted section

Class action suits only profit the lawyers. Ive decided no due to the fact that my gain will not be greater than the risk. Say i get 2 k after taxes. That does not nearly cover my free labor.

And they can only sue up to 3yrs. So the damages are limited. So for me not worth it. I know regardless ill never be promoted, but why put the spotlight on yourself when its not worth it. That being said, if you desire is just to stand up to walgreens, i say go for it. I can respect that

Unlike the Wakgreens sexual discrimination case against women a couple of years ago where if you were a female manager that fell into the scope of the suit you got paid, this one is different. The exa suit you have to join in. The difference is the ultimate final payout. If I remember correctly, the female managers only received a few hundred dollars for that lawsuit. For the exa a suit, well if you were in exa within the past three years just guesstimate all the hours you put in that you never got compensated for. If as an exa you worked even half the hours I did it, that number turns into a very large dollar amount.
Who do we contact to join. I really want to join I've been a exa for 8 years,worked 50 or more hours a week. I don' understand how I can prove it because I'm only on the schduele for 45 hours.Always told to stay until its done. So how do I join

Actually on the schedule you are always scheduled for 44 hours, no matter what you worked. That's all contents of the lawsuit itself. Don't worry about proving that. The attorneys will take care if that. If you haven't received the information on the lawsuit already you should be receiving it soon. All EXA's will be contacted.

Two other active class action lawsuits against Walgreens. This company has been operating so shady for so long, taking advantage of their employees. The Phatmacy America Trust No More!

I called the number for Sanford Law out of Little Rock. Its real. Apparently California already had a similar ruling that allowed exa's back wages for their unpaid overtime. That's why California exa's are paid hourly. Personally I don't care if any of you sign up or not. I have been wronged and no longer want to be used as the district workhorse while Walgreeds promotes young fresh out of college kids and fast tracks them to SM. I believe in diversity and inclusion.

You are salaried so you can either hurry and get your work done in the 44 hours you are scheduled or stay late finishing it. If you stayed late finishing work assigned to you then it is your fault. Get 9 hours worth of work done in 8 and you can go home early for all I care.

I just joined this law suit. There are several negative comments on this blog about how EXA's that join this lawsuit will get a few hundred bucks and then they'll lose their jobs. Well, you guys couldn't be anymore wrong! It's going to be a whole lot more than a few hundred dollars! Just do the math: guesstimate all the hours that you worked over and did not get paid! It's a lot more than a few hundred dollars! Any EXA that doesn't join this suit is simply, STUPID! Do yourself a favor just call the law firm, you have nothing to lose. A similar case has already been settled in California, where the EXA's won.

All those hours worked and never being paid. All those hours spent away from the family. All the those weekend worked. This lawsuit won't make up for the hundreds of thousands worked and child's baseball game missed, but it will be we a start.

apparently your not a exa because if you were you would know you start off with one list and throughtout the day the list grows, and as the store manager is leaving he/she calls you to the office and tells you don't forget about compass get it done. Than in the mean time your 3rd shift shiftlead calls and tells you they can't unload truck because of a hurt hand and only has 1 cashier with back problems no one to call in or wants to come in so guess what you have to go and unload the truck at 11 at night after just leaving at 7. So if your that good of a exa as you thank you than good I'm glad for you but not everybody has it that easy.

Wonder if these lawsuits have anything to do with EXAs automatically becoming ASMs.
