The master rewire plan (field transformation guide)

If Well Experience stores are the ones with Take Care clinics, that's happening in my area. All are being shuttered. Not sure why and not sure if it's company wide. It's a shame, too, because the $5 co-pay would have been nice if I ever needed a Take Care clinic in the future.  (Thursday Aug 18 | post #417)

Fluctuating scheduling that never stops fluctuating.

The first you should do is input your desired availability on StoreNet. That way, the manager can't schedule you outside of those hours or days that are listed as unavailable. When you request a day off, always include a note as to what the day is for. Stretch the truth if you have to. Also, don't answer the phone if they call on your day off if you don't want to work that day. If they're not going to give you any favors, don't give them any favors. Don't let them jerk you around... school is more important so that you have a fighting chance of getting out of Walgreens and finding a career that you can be proud of.  (Thursday Aug 18 | post #2)

Weapons Policy - Concerned For Your Safety

None that I know of. Definitely don't allow access to the SM or Davis. They have no reason to look through your car for any reason.  (Saturday Aug 13 | post #12)

I wish my manager had the sack to ban couponers.  (Saturday Aug 6 | post #5)

During your break..

It's one thing for your breath to smell like ass. It's something completely different for it to smell of alcohol, and then to share that with the customers.  (Saturday Aug 6 | post #5)

WBA shuts down Drugstore.com and Beauty.com. Go ...

I don't remember that part. What patents?  (Friday Aug 5 | post #10)

WBA shuts down Drugstore.com and Beauty.com. Go ...

Went to drugstore.com for the first time after first reading this post. The homepage looks like a Chinese website knockoff, like one of the ones that could steal your identity. The only indication that it is actually legit and maintained by Walgreens is tiny print on the bottom of the page. Shutting those two sites down is a good move. Walgreens really needs only one website so as to avoid confusion and redundancy.  (Friday Aug 5 | post #8)

New Bathroom SOPs

My store does that nightly already, although usually not at the 'white glove' level of detail. I'm not going to clean at the elevated level I clean my own house. Walgreens can hire janitors, which I'm not.  (Friday Aug 5 | post #3)

Accused of stealing

Even my region's LP guy has said a bag check is not necessary if you are going from the front checkout to the exit. Sounds like you have an unreasonably strict manager. I would look for a transfer, because dealing with a dik manager makes work unbearable.  (Wednesday Aug 3 | post #5)

Drug test collector in the bathroom?!

The one time my store had a surprise drug test visit, we had privacy. I don't remember if she was in the bathroom or not, but I was able to pee in a cup inside a closed stall. I don't think I would be able to accept someone watching me pee with everything hanging out. Unless it's an officer of some sort and you are or were guilty of something, I believe there are laws to protect you from that happening.  (Wednesday Aug 3 | post #32)

When does direct deposit show up?

Wait until tomorrow. It will show up.  (Wednesday Aug 3 | post #3)

Pay period ending

I think it is actually Thursday morning that I get paid. I balance my paycheck about once a month and I have a comfortable enough cushion in my account where I don't need my paycheck the day it drops. I balance everything the same time I pay my bills. I do remember balancing my paycheck online last year late at night and I saw the deposit suddenly appear after switching screens around 1:30am. From what I've heard, it varies depending on who you bank with.  (Wednesday Aug 3 | post #11)

Shopping carts for high theft stores?

I don't understand why Walgreens doesn't use the plastic carts with the cross-hatch design that you see at Wal-Mart and Target. You would think that it would be a tad cheaper and the metal strippers would be less likely to steal them.  (Tuesday Aug 2 | post #10)

Oh come on - those survey statements were hilarious.

I'm hoping it's not an excuse for them to cut benefits more. Such as, "employees rate the employee discount as a 2, so we're dropping it all together since it won't be missed and it can save the company X amount a year."  (Jul 28, 2016 | post #4)
