Best part is how if a overnight mgt wanted to stay on overnights at a sfl that his/her off days are not set. My cl at told me this. That my days off would be up to her based on vacation and warehouse....

Thank You Truth for posting this link. People, you need to watch this and movies etc. by
Alex Jones. Go to infowars.com or prisonplanet.com to get the real truth about what is happening to this country (and world).
Everytime I try to mention anything about the NWO or "Big Pharma" on the Mark Wagner Wags blog, it never gets posted. It's obvious why, but come on! Wags still has flu shot messages on the reader boards? It's frigging April!! WTF!! BTW, don't ever get a flu shot. The next false flag will be a pandemic of some kind. Probably aerosolized but may begin as additives to a yearly flu vaccine. Then spread by droplet route (cough, sneeze etc.).
This may not be the forum for going on about this but the sheeple need to be informed. And I am a Wags RPh.

Walgreens was a privately owned company that ended up paying inflated wages to its assistant store managers. That was great until it became a publicly traded company on the stock market. Then every bit of profit had to be tapped from the company to pay shareholders more dividend. That is why they are cutting wages. We don't need Alex Jones or David Icke's lizard people to explain what is going on. But if it makes you feel good to think the NWO is after you then have at it.

Pretty darn good and business-wise the moves make sense, but there are alot of good people leaving or being seriously hurt financially by them. Some who have given the most productive years of their lives thinking they had a career, so of course there is alot of anger. At least they have a year to try and find something better or adjust their budgets, but it still sucks. I hope everyone learns that there is no loyalty to employees so no need for employees to be loyal either. If you are employed, do your best, but look for better, never settle.

It is an adjustment that is long over due. I have posted on other threads how the company used to be 20 years ago and the changes that have happened from then until now.

Walgreens is like any other company who needs to adjust to the new axiom of doing more with less. The store cost structure was lower before the building pissing wars between WAG, CVS, RAD and the defunct Eckerds of the world. They built way to many stores in crappy locations and they have stopped growing. Between 98-08, the company profits grew with new store growth. They tried increasing the amount in each square foot being sold, but that did not work out. Now with no more new stores, we need to improve what we have.

They need to make the adjustments now to lower the operating costs or we all will not have a job.

I really do feel sorry about some of the changes, but it is for the whole company's out look to survive.

Lol, the building pissing wars, nice. But the compact on a while has ALOT more profitable stores so the majority of the locations chosen were good decisions. Only been around 13 years total and only remember the building times before the last few years. We do need to adjust, just hope we don't lose all of our future talented employees cause you and I aren't going to be here forever.

Real reason simply greed. Cmon sheeple. Guy on top wants his huge bonus. Sales down because he tosses esi to curb...so sacrifice employees on front line pay make sure he still gets huge bonus. I will b gone by year end but wonder if you guys gonna care when he pulls in huge bonus. It really is outrage when you think about it. Pay cuts should have been across board.. corporate and store.. funny how we are continually told we are above industry standards.. all company employees should have had to take say 10 percent pay cut..shows you again how company is no longer for team and for all...that's why don't care anymore... my lazy store mgr wanted to know why nothing done on list.. I told him too busy with customer service... I told him I'll ask mgt and employees why didn't finish since I delegated all to them..he was pissed.. he is one of those short angry guys... fat and lazy with anger problems.. you know them. They run rampant in this dump..I left my lunch from mcdonalds all spread out across his desk area.that really pissed him off..haha

Too funny! You may be stating what thousands are thinking! I agree there should have been across the board cuts.

Pay cuts had to be where they would save the most money. That means the stores. Industry standards are to pay corporate officers more than cashiers or managers at the store level. You acting out doesn't really show anyone anything other than Walgreens that they can document your actions until they have good reason to fire you and deny you unemployment. So get over yourself and move on with your life.

Woooooooo! So Mr. douche, let me get this straight. By lowering our standards to others low standards just to say we are in line with industry standards is a good thing? Wags has ALWAYS been above the cream and now it decides that lowering our standards to meet the other douchy stores is approppiate? You have your head up your backside....this company should ALWAYS be ahead of everyone....not in line with everyone. Paying better wages is what makes customers happy knowing they are not going to a store full of industry standard disgruntled low payed employees. But i am sure that makes too much common sense for you....WOOOOOOOOOOOO!

There have been too many people refusing the Sfl that my district will have to look outside the company. There are way too many things in the mix that could make this a disaster.

#1 newbies will not have the loyalty that the old MGTs and ExAs did. AKA "revolving door"

#2 Regular employees that have been there for years, suddenly having newbies in charge of them will cause disenchantment, and resentment.

#3 This company will pay the price in both customer happiness, and employee happiness.

#4 Walgreens "culture" as we knew it will crumble, and everyday interaction will turn into something we no longer recognize.

#5 Thousands of MGT and Exas will have alot of crap to say about WAG, and will disuade family members & friends into filling prescriptions at wag.

#6 SMs will have chronic headaches trying to keep their management organized.

#7 Productivity will go down the shitter as more and more incentives are taken. Bonuses, PMs (already taken from COS), and the like.

Can u see where this is leading?

I currently work for wag for 4 years now and i did apply for the shift lead along with 1 other employee who technically was not eligible to get it because she was there less than 1 year. The exa had to do our reviews because we lost our manager and because he "does not like my character" i did not get it. I have my own reasons for thinking i did not get it but this is not the forum for that. I am now glad i didn't get it because i don't want to be a sucker getting paid so little so the corporate aholes can make more money in their paychack. I actually will be making more money than the girl who did get the job. wagner gave himself a 37% raise last year but cut our raises and hours. i work my ass off because that is just how i am, i do not do it for the company i do it because i work hard at everything i do. i think all the current asst mgrs and exas should all start looking for new jobs because i have a feeling wag is going to do what lowes did last year and that is get rid of everyone making over a certain amount of money. i started a petition on change.com for wag to stop the suggestive selling because they make us say we are doing for charity and we do send it to the troops or orpanages but they are not doing it out of the kindness or their hearts they are doing it for the sale and quite frankly i dont want to ask every single person if they want to buy or donate candy, if they wanted it they would have gotten it. i can go on and on about what a sucky place it is to work but in the end I know its all for nothing they are greedy aholes and we are the puppets on the strings.

Yep. THIS will be the number one problem that quite frankly,i dont think that corp took into account when they decided to do this. I pointed it out(in here) earlier in the year when the MGT to SFL conversion was first let out of the bag. A revolving door of key carriers will be the norm...and the business will suffer because of it.

I found out yesterday that 1 of the overnight shift leads had NEVER worked in any kind of retail and as I stated before the other one has been with the company less than 1 year. I really hope wag sees the error of their ways when neither one of these women can handle the position. The one who has never worked retail only had 2 days of formal overnight training, I think it is very much a sink or swim type deal. I worry for the future of the company if they think this is the way to save money so they can afford the raises the corporate aholes gave themselves. All it is going to do is make life harder for the daytime workers. As it is they took away a lot of our hours, the way it was said to me is "they want us to do more with less". I would like to see them do more with less pay because without us on the "frontline" there is no them. They are greedy bastards who do not give a damn about anything but how much money they can take away from us and give to themselves. It really makes me sick. I truely cannot wait for this new mgt structure to fail and they will be left with egg on their faces. Now I have to get ready for work and actually bust my ass for these people, truck and tag day!!!
