All this bullshit the company is putting people through when all they had to do is cut all levels of management 10 percent in pay
,stop raises on pharmacist and high level employees ,and re-do the bonus plan.Everyone would have taken a little bit of a hit and we all could have moved on.This way they still have qualified people in positions and people wouldnt resent the company as much.Now,they have 30,000 pissed off mgts.
I would rather see Walgreens take away our Holiday pay instead of this mess. I watched in disgust as
tons of Good Fixtures were trashed , at remodel. Working equipment that could have at least been sold as scrap. I didn't know we would end up paying for excessive spending. I am sure it was a huge tax write off for the company

was talking to my cl and he said the reason a lot of people got rejected other than education was they didn't fill out the application seriously. he said a lot of applicants put 1 sentence responses to each question. i think they ended up cutting more applicants than they needed too. said we are gonna have a much smaller asmt 'class' than anticipated.

he also said he doesnt know any of the deadlines for when interviews start, math test, ect (which i dont beleive) but said to read up on behavioral interviews as it will be harder than you expect.

this company's lack of communication is appalling. only places i actually find out relevant info is here or walgreens world. but even that magazine is jsut a bunch of propaganda.

I was told that math tests must be done by March 15. Eligible candidates were contacted about it last week in our area.

I was also told that interviews will be happening mid-to-late March with official ASMT decisions coming mid-April

I think it's great that Walgreens is dropping mgts to asmts I would love to get paid less and do the same amount of work with less help love Walgreens

ASMT is a lateral move for MGTs, but with a much better opportunity for promotion.

Troll elsewhere, please

You only take the math test if you advanced to the next step. Most people were told last Friday?

They are doing the IRRs and are due the 15th of March. The math test is due the 13th. You'll know by the 20th if you'll get an interview with DM and CL by then.

I'm a SFL and I made it pass the first application review (quite a few MGT's got cut in our area) and am scheduled to take the math test later this week, so that obviously isn't true.

I also received a phone call saying I didn't get it because I didn't have a degree and I didn't have the greatest Answers on my application. But the next day they told me they had reevaluated and decided to let more people in. They are still trying to work out the kinks; hang in there guys. :)

Yep. Communication in my district beyond the store seems to be a big game of assumption and guessing games. Nothing new.

All i know is that if i get a "sorry response" i'll be asking ALOT of questions in terms of round 2 and the re-applying process. Hopefully there is one. The communication is a joke in my area.

If i get BS answers to that,i'll be aggressively looking for employment elsewhere...and i'll openly let that be known,work appropriately ;) and take my last 90 days of MGT pay staying home with a cold earning my massive bank of sick time.

I was told that I didn't make it to the next round but that theyre going to make me take the math test anyway JUST TO EMBARASS ME!

This isn't fair. I know for a FACT that I am promotable. If you don't believe me, just ask ME or my best work friend! We both agree that I'm pretty much da bomb.
