Walgreens sucks

Posted Tue June 29, 2004, by Natalia A. written to Walgreen's

Write a Letter to this Company  |  Rate this Company

I am writing to inform you of a problem with the staff attitude/knowledge at one of your stores. The store I'm referring to is at Hollywood Blvd. across the street from the hollywood police station and the hollywood courthouse..

I was in there with a friend. I was purchasing makeup and hair products. I always read the labels carefully. I was followed around and watched. It was very annoying. Every aile me and my friend would go to, one of the store employees would follow, and stand there staring at us. It was rude.

On average, I would say I visit your store 1-2 times per month, and I usually spend $1-$20 per visit. You can be sure that I will never buy from your store again. Also, I seriously doubt whether I would recommend your company again.

Here's what I'd like Walgreen's to do: Lighten up and worry about the people who are actually stealing.

Thank you for taking the time to read my letter. I hope you can respond soon.

Boy, Natalia, I couldn't disagree more. Maybe they have changed in
the past few years but, I have always been treated well at this
I never shopped there before Meijers on Plainfield built the new
store. But, I found the new Meijers so annoying I started shopping at
Walgreens. I found the bargains, staff, and the fast pharmacy service
far superior to Meijers. Also, I run into my neighbors at Walgreens
-they also started coming to Walgreens because Meijers was annoying,
but they keep coming back because it's a nice place to shop.

The problem with Walgreens, as with many companies, is that they only
care about money.

Ive seen an old woman with a deceased husband ask for more hours at
work only to have her hours cut three weeks later AND a new person
hired. Not only a new person hired, two new people hired within the
month. Please dont tell me that Walgreens hiring new people has
anything to do with trying to save the company money on paying for our
health insurance. If you work under a certain number of hours a week,
you lose your health insurance. Surprisingly, all the full time
employees work one or two hours under the required number of hours to
receive health insurance. Thats a coincidence right? But their TV ads
say they care about its customers. Right. More like they care about
your wallet.

And they really push the health insurance. My store manager, Ms.
Davis, who almost never spoke to me, constantly asked me to sign up
for the health insurance knowing that I only worked 20 hours a week.
Knowing that I could not receive it. I finally said one day "I work 20
hours a week. So why would I get it? I wouldnt be able to use it." She
didnt say anything. They let you pay for the health insurance and then
when you go to use it, it comes back saying declined due to
insufficient hours. I had a third shift person tell me that this
happened to her.

By the way, I got my prescription at Walgreens for the two years I
worked there. I always had to wait in line 10-15 minutes to get my
prescription because some guy was yelling at the pharmacist or they
were just really slammed. I heard Walmart was cheaper so I started
going there. I saved a whopping 10 bucks a month off my prescription
by going there AND every time I have gone, I have either had no wait
or waited five minutes at most. So then I found out Costco was
cheaper. Im now saving a whopping 15 dollars a month at Costco and at
Costco I have never waited. So, bascially, for two years I paid $180
more a year for my prescription and always had to wait in line.

The other issue is the management. The co-workers vary but, out of all
the management, a few or several will have bad attitudes. Bad
attitudes meaning lazy, rude, micromanaging or totally ignorant of the
idea of positive reinforcement.

Lazy as in they get a list for themselves and pawn off a bunch of
their work onto you. Then you see them smoking outside ten minutes
later. You see a note in the office from the store manager saying to
the assistant manager "Tony - do this and stock the cooler" and then
it says "Amanda - do this this and that." At the end of the night, you
see Amanda doing all her stuff AND the cooler.

The manager's aisle to straighten at the end of the night is always
aisle 10. The other employees straighten 4 aisles but the manager only
has to do one and that is aisle 10. When Mr. Lugo works, I do aisle 10
and my other 4 aisles. When other managers work, they do aisle 10. Mr.
Lugo is one of those "special" managers though who likes to talk on
the phone to his friends all night and claim he was busy with
customers so I have to do his aisle plus the long list he gave me.

By the way, Tony and Lugo are real assistant managers and these are
real instances that happened with them. I literally saw Tony outside
smoking a cigarette while another girl, I called her Amanda because I
have no issues with her to reveal her name, did his work. I literally
saw Lugo talking on the phone for hours every night to his friends
while we straightened his aisle and worked. Every time I walked in the
office, he was eating and/or talking on the phone to his friends or
girlfriend on speaker phone.

Ive had managers micromanage. They check on you every five minutes.
They may ask how you are, pause and then either give you a long list
or ask how the list is going. One person told me that a particular
manager liked to sit and watch us on camera and then pop out when we
were standing still. There is no positive reinforcement. If you are
doing a good job AND are a manager, they let you know. Otherwise, they
dont let you know. I actually asked one of the managers if they had
heard of positive reinforcement and they said "What is that?"

The employee evaluation is completed on a form online but you dont
discuss your performance unless you ask to do so. It is supposed to be
a two sided evaluation with the employee completing a form on their
own service and the manager doing it as well but, of course, the store
manager claimed an asst manager, Victoria, told us to complete the
form before the deadline and she never did so the only performance
evaluation that was completed was the manager's version of your
performance alone. The previous year I was never even told there was
an evaluation! I learned this after two years of working there. The
manager also never talks to you in person about your performance but
youre supposed to check off on it online as if you have discussed it
or "be taken off the schedule."

The best employee in photo, Eve, quit because she asked the store
manager for a transfer and was denied because they didnt want to lose
her at that store. Instead of giving the hardest working person in
Walgreens a transfer and keeping her in the company, they let her
quit. She had moved 45 minutes away and was working two jobs. She
constantly had customers asking for her. She ran the photo lab better
than anyone I have ever seen. Instead of granting her the transfer,
they had to hire a new girl who was horrible and broke things,
literally, every day. The previous store manager gave her an award to
show her recognition for doing such a great job. That is the only time
I have seen any management show any type of acknowledgment for the
people who work hard at their job. There are no contests, awards given
or any recognition given to good workers. They gave you pins years ago
but they stopped doing that to - gasp - save money! The only people
who get any recognition are the management in forms of bonuses that no
one else sees.

Ive seen managers cut buy one get one free packages open to sell them
as individual items at full price. Ive had a manager tell me that I
shouldnt tell the customers about the coupons because ripping them off
instead of establishing a friendly relationship really makes them want
to come back. Ive had a manager tell me that I was hurting their
profits by using coupons to get products for almost nothing. Even
though they pay me 8 bucks an hour, it's wrong for me to hurt company
profits by getting an iced tea for a quarter. Okay.

If you work photo, you are pretty much a slave. They want you to mop,
take out the trash, stock the shelves, put up signs, help the
customers and run photo. If you are in the number one photo store in
the district, most managers let you just take care of photo but you
always have the crazy ones who still expect you to wait on photo
customers every five minutes, take care of their photo orders AND
stock the cooler AND stock the shelves AND whatever list that is

So many things to complain about.

They care about money but they waste who knows how much on printing
and posting repetitive already-established signs. There's already a
sign up saying the sale price but you have to put another sticker
UNDERNEATH the sign that's already up because there's no room to put
it. Then you have to cut out pictures of the ad saying the sale price.
So now you have two stickers up saying the price and a picture of an
ad saying the price. On top of that, it blocks the prices of the other
products below and above the signs! This sounds stupid because it is.
This is why Americans ask what the price of something is when IT'S
RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF THEM. They are so overwhelmed with signs and
stickers that they don't even notice them. Walgreens wastes an untold
amount of money in man hours and in paper posting up three signs
saying the same thing.

The constant badgering to sell the item of the month. "If you sell
this candy bar, you get a nickel!" Wow, a nickel. Let me guess. If I
sell a 100 of these, I make five bucks. I bet you make a lot more than
five bucks with your bonus for ME, not you, selling this stuff, huh?
The company would sell more of the item of the month if they actually
gave the workers a real incentive to sell it. You can talk to us,
sternly look at us and leave up angry signs about "This is your job.
Sell IT!" all you want but, honestly, I can't get fired over not
selling it, you dont treat anyone well and I dont feel like giving you
a nice fat bonus when I gain nothing out of it financially or
emotionally from how you treat me. On top of that, I like some of the
repeat customers and I dont feel like harassing them to buy a candy
bar every single time that I see them. "How's it going?" makes
customers come back a lot sooner than "How are you? Would you like to
buy this crap I havta ask you about for the next 30 days?"

Another important side note: if they know something that benefits you,
they will not tell you. For example, with the item of the month. IF
the item is on sale and you use a coupon in the Walgreens paper to
sell the item, you dont get your whopping nickel for it. The store
manager did not even know this. Or she claimed not to know it. So,
basically, no reason for me to sell it because she gets the credit for
it and I don't even get my whole nickel. None of the other employees
read the employee handbook so they had no idea.

Also, fifteen minute breaks. Walgreens has a policy that you are
supposed to get three a shift. I have never seen a store where that
really happens. Most stores give you one. One store gave no one a 15
minute break besides the girl that worked in the morning. I had to
insist on it. I was told it was not required by two assistant managers
and one store manager. I had to print out the store policy for breaks
and bring it in and show them. Then I still didnt get my break until I
called the district manager. I was treated differently after that.
Other people told me "Dont rock the boat. Just dont take the break." I
went to college and realized relatively quickly Walgreens wasnt going
to be my career so I insisted on the break. I told the other employees
that if no one said anything, then nothing would ever change. The fear
of this being their main job with no education and children committed
them to remaining quiet and that is completely understandable but sad

Also, let's say you want to invest in this company and make it a
career. You don't get holidays off ever. You have to take your
vacation days before and after holidays, even assistant managers. As a
manager, you will have to work third shift in a 24 hour store at least
once a week. There are no normal hours and no normal holidays so,
unless you are a top executive, there is no real reason to work here
as a career. You will miss holidays with your family no matter how
good of a worker you are.

They don't train people. Photo is expensive. If you break stuff, it
costs them a lot of money and new people always do. It also takes time
to bring the new stuff in and, in the mean time, the customers are
very unhappy that photo is down. It's not the new person's fault for
breaking stuff either. They train you with someone for maybe two days.
If you ask for more time, they say they will talk about it and don't.
I learned photo through the books, internet and help line. None of the
managers know anything about photo. Maybe they know how to change a
roll of photo paper but, generally, that is all. What a great business
move! You have new overwhelmed photo employees with a broken machine,
uninformed managers who have worked for Walgreens for YEARS, and a
help line that generally takes 1-2 hours to call you back on even the
simplest question. Walgreens loses money by not training their people
correctly and taking the time to do it. Instead of losing out on
having two people work photo for 1-2 weeks, they lose thousands more
when the new person breaks something, has photo business non-existent
for 2-3 days and the cost of having a technician come out PLUS the new
parts. Look how much they saved by not training the new hires AND the
managers correctly.

On a positive note, I loved most of the employees. I feel bad for the
immigrants who work super hard thinking it will amount to anything.
Best case scenario, they become assistant manager after three years of
busting their butt and appeasing the various personalities of
management. Worst case scenario, they realize that Amanda is better as
a floor person because she works hard enough for three people and will
never promote her because of that cost-saving hard working personality
she has.

Walgreens is too big to care about customers. My son needed a
not-so-common medication, and they promised me they would have it, as
long as I submitted the prescription before Tuesday. I dropped it off
on Monday and they said by Friday it would be there. I called the
following Monday at noon and they said it would be ready in one hour.
When I showed up after work (around 8:30 pm) they acted as if I had
dropped the script off that afternoon and gave me the same line about
having to drop it off by Tuesday. I was shocked and informed them
that I had dropped it off the previous Monday. So, they proceeded to
deflect blame from themselves by: (1)telling me that the medication
was on a manufacturer's back order; and (2)telling me that my
insurance company wouldn't have covered it anyway. I called the
insurance company and, later that week, called Novartis (the drug
company), and discovered that neither of their claims were true.
That night, they ended up locating only 10 capsules (the script was
for 30) several miles away. I had to drive there as fast as I could
to get the 10 capsules--and still pay the $60 copayment--before they
closed. My son needed his medication; I had no choice.
I called CVS that week. Not only did they locate three stores that
had my son's medication, but the regional manager called my cell phone
three days later to let me know that she had personally made sure that
the two closest CVS pharmacies to my home would always have it in
stock. What a difference!

On Saturday, September 19 at approximately 1:30 PM, I dropped off a
prescription at store 4448 in Bowling Green Kentucky to be filled for
my granddaughter. We were told the wait would be 30 minutes. We
returned at 5:30 PM to pick up the prescription and it was still not
ready. We were told the pharmacist had to call the doctor to get the
ingredients. We were told it would be ready in 30 minutes. We came
back at 8:00 PM and were told ďthe pharmacist hasnít had time to fill
it; maybe the night pharmacist will have time.Ē

On Sunday, September 20, (23 hours later) we returned to attempt to
retrieve the filled prescription. I was told it was filled but cannot
be found. I waited for at least 15 minutes until it was found. The
same pharmacist that didnít have time to fill it Saturday seemed to
have found time Sunday to be chatty. Needless to say, I was very

I understand everyone is busy these days. However, we live 30 miles
away in another city. If it was not for the fact we had to come to
Bowling Green anyway, the prescription would still be there. If the
busy pharmacist would have just told me that she didnít want to mix
the compound, she should have told me and I would not have wasted her
time or mine and went someplace that wanted my business.

In the future, I will take ALL my business to a reputable pharmacy
with a knowledgeable pharmacist that cares about customers.

I had a problem at that same freaking walgreens. The assistant manager
there SUCKS. There is no customer service whatsoever. I asked the lady
for a prepaird visa card, she asked did i want one with increments or
one that i could put my own amount and i said sure one with my own
amount. She takes ten minutes doing who knows what comes out asks for
my $230 bucks and swipes the thing and gives it to me. I get home and
realize theres no card! And its NOT in english so I can't even read
the freakign thing! She says you activate it and get a card in 7 days.
Umm NO 9 wanted a CARD so I can pay the bill. If I had known that I
would have waited for my replacement bank of america debit card to
come in the mail. Shes like "well theres nothing I can do" like its
your problem not mine kind of attitude. Like she didn't care. Im sorry
but im a bank teller and as a part of customer service yoou should
always acknowledge the customers problem and apologize or at least
PRETEND like you give a hoot. She openly did not give a crap, am I
really going to have to pay because of HER mistake. She never
explained to be that before taking my momeny that it was NOT a card,
which is what i clearly wanted. So what type of customer service is
that. Being LAZY and the worst part is SHES the manager?????? WHO THE
HELL DO THEY HIRE. They must hire any idiot off the street im a
college student 19 years old and I provide better customer service at
my job than that old hag.

I just had a horrible experience at the Issaquah, WA store. They
denied my fiancee from picking up pain medication for me for an ankle
I just broke the night before. I had to call and speak with there
store manager just to get help (after being on hold waiting to speak
with the pharmacists). There pharmacy staff is the most rude pharmacy
staff I had ever had to deal with. After finally getting the
pharmacists on the phone, she said I sounded upset and to call back
when I was not. Ok, THAT pissed me off. I am so sick of seeing
people like that (sad to say usually ends up being women) that are
just incapable of being rational and logical and understanding about
how such behavior can cause people to get upset and there job as a
professional is to put the situation at ease and fix the problem
making the person upset. THe store sucks and is dirty, the pharmacy
staff is rude at best, and the manager though nice and helpful, is
blessed with a horrible staff which since he is the manager, I must
blame him for. "F" Walgreens :)

They had every right to follow you they are doing what they can to
prevent theft and cosmetics theft rates are ridiculous. And those
isles you were in the cosmetics employees are required to be in by
company policy. It was not rude they were doing their job and by them
doing what they are suppose to they are trying to keep theft down and
with that prices down also. When you stand there and read the labels
it looks as though you are loitering and that is a big flashing alert
to employees.

On Monday February 4, 2008 around 12:30 pm, I went into Walgreens
#6776 looking for two items from your Super Saver book that were to be
free after rebate. The items were the Venus embrace razor and the
Soft Soap Radiance body soap. I was disappointed to find that those
items were not stocked. This was my fifth unsuccesful attempt to find
these items at several of my local Walgreens in Naples, FL. I
resigned myself to the fact that these items didn't exist in your
stores and proceeded to check out the clearance section, as I always
do when I visit your stores. I was flabergasted to find a Brita
faucet mount water filter unit marked down to a final price of $6.49.
I was thrilled not only because of the low price, but because I also
had a $5.00 off coupon for a Brita water filtration system in my
coupon file and I knew that I would end up paying only $1.49 for such
a great item. The dissapointment of not finding the razor or body
soap was soon forgotten as I made my way to the register with several
other clearance items in my basket. All was ringing up as marked, but
when the cashier rang up the Brita filter, the price scanned @ $32.99.
The cashier then called the manager to see how she should handle this
item. The MOD, Mr. Etienne, without looking the item up in the
computer, told us that it wasn't on clearance for $6.49. I told him
that the item was clearly marked with an orange sticker that said
$6.49. There were also a couple other stickers that showed the
progressive markdown of this item. Mr. Etienne, in a dry unapologetic
tone, insisted that he would not sell it to me at the price marked
because it was more than 75% off. I told him that was not my problem
and that Walgreen's should honor their pricing even if he or another
employee had marked it incorrectly. He then told me that he wouldn't
sell it to me for less than $10.00. I bedgrudgingly paid for the item
at $10.00 because I knew I had the $5.00 off coupon and because I was
getting hot and didn't want to escalate into a full blown argument
with him. If indeed he were selling it at 75% off, the price should
have been $8.25, not $10.00. The item was clearly marked at $6.49 and
that's what it should have been rang as. I was not aware that
Walgreens managers could change prices at their whim and sole
discretion while the customer is standing at the register. Every
other store I have ever gone to honors the price on the sticker
regardless of whether it was incorrectly tagged or not. The consumer
should not have to be penalized for employee mistakes or be at the
mercy of a manager who decides that the price marked is too low. I
asked Mr. Etienne for his boss's phone number and he gave it to me. I
called Mr. Evan Mosley, the store manager, and left a message for him
with Lisa, the cashier who waited on me. She said he wasn't in, but
she would give him the message. It is now Tuesday the 5th at 2:00 pm
and I have yet to hear from Mr. Mosley and not only am I fuming over
this lack of price honoring at this Walgreens, but also am now angry
over the fact that I had to go to 5 different stores looking for the
advertised items I mentioned above. I have wasted time, gas and money
driving around town only to be marginalized, dismissed and basically
accused of price tampering by Mr. Etienne and Mr. Mosely. I sincerely
hope that this issue will be brought to their attention as I am a long
time and loyal customer of Walgreens. This being said, I hold no
reservations regarding taking my business elsewhere if this is the way
that I can expect to be treated at your establishments. Also, as a
member of several social organizations and the Naples Hispanic Chamber
of Commerce, I will not be the least bit shy in recounting my negative
experience at Walgreens.

wasted effort by assgoblin Wed November 28, 2012 @ 6:39 PM

by Ex-Pharmacist Posted Fri January 25, 2008 @ 12:01 PM

I reviewed these messages and come at this situation from a different
angle. I am an academically trained hospital pharmacist who took a
job at Walgreens to pay the bills until I received the position I
truly desired. I practice honestly and tell patients the truth. For
example, if a girl smokes cigarettes, is recieving birth control and
plans to fly to Hawaii, I advised her that because of the cigarettes
and birth control pills, her risk of developing ablood clot is higher
than a non-smoker. I advised her to minimize the risk by doing the
airlines recommended exercises and walking regularly. She called to
complain that I scared her. The company came down on me for doing my
job and her doctor even supported me. There have been a number of
instances where I received customer complaints for providing folks
with accurate information. After reviewing the customer complaints,
the basic issue is that I kept the patients safe and did my job, but
the company is more concerned with the bottom line rather than the
patient's overall well-being and safety.

I should also note that one of the technicians where I worked was a
reformed addict. She made a very serious mistake and it got missed by
me, which it is my fault (I have a 99.5% accuracy rate so you can
imagine how upset I was). When I questioned her about another error
later that month, she said "it isn't my problem if I make a mistake,
its your license." She used the same pharmacy for medications to
control her sleeping disorders. When a prescription was called in for
her, I had to take it down. Upon checking it with her profile, I
found that at the time the serious error was made, the was on drugs
that could have imapired her judgement.

When they presented me with the customer complaints, I resigned
because I did not want to be a part of a company that practices
pharmacy unsafely.

Did you ever notice how they have a 1-hour photo lab, but it takes 20
minutes to a fill a prescription, which could do harm if prepared or
used improperly?

by Walgreens Sucks Posted Thu August 23, 2007 @ 9:25 PM

Walgreens does not pay its' EXA's overtime. This is in spite of the
fact that they spend about 90% of their time unloading trucks and
stocking shelves! Please read this Walgreens and fix the problem
before it's too late! Under California law, employers are obligated to
pay workers for overtime hours worked (assuming that the employees are
not "exempt" managers, professionals, administrative workers or
computer professionals). Employers must provide meal periods of 30
minutes every five hours and/or provide break times of no less than
ten minutes every four hours.

In addition, companies which force workers in California to work seven
consecutive days must pay workers overtime wages for all work
performed on the seventh consecutive day.

Overtime wages are 1.5 times the employee's regular rate of pay.
Failure to provide breaks and/or pay overtime wages due, can result in
stiff penalties, including but not limited to double damages and one
hour of pay at the employees' regular rate for each day that the
employer failed to provide a lunch break or a meal break, plus
attorneys' fees and costs.

Moreover, under the applicable laws, even a single employee can bring
a class action or collective action lawsuit on behalf of all
"similarly situated" plaintiffs working in the company violating the
wage and hour laws.

Overtime class actions in California usually arise in two scenarios.
First, many companies "misclassify" workers as managers or assistant
managers. In California, unlike the rest of the country, a manager or
assistant manager must earn two times the minimum wage (approximately
$28,000 per year) to qualify for an exemption from overtime pay.

In addition, managers or assistant managers can lose their exempt
status if, as a practical matter, more than 50% of the work they
perform on a daily basis is work performed by non-exempt workers. For
example, an assistant manager in a retail store who spends more than
50% of his or her time doing sales or answering phone calls -- the
same work performed by salespeople -- would be entitled to receive
overtime pay for all hours greater than 8 in any workday and all hours
in excess of 40 per week.

Second, many companies simply do not pay 1.5 times an employee's
regular rate of pay for overtime work in clear violation of state and
federa law. We work with law firms handling both "misclassification"
and regular failure to pay overtime class action suits. Typically,
these firms work on a pure contingency fee basis.

If you are owed unpaid overtime, you may qualify for damages or
remedies that may be awarded in a possible class action lawsuit.

I work there as an EXA. My God, this job sucks. They work me 15 hours
per day without allowing me to take a break (because I am on salary
and don't get any overtime). I am supposed to be a manager but all I
do is stock shelves 15 hours a day. I would not recommend this job to
anyone! It's just a matter of time before they get a lawsuit!

I work for walgreens, and I will not buy even as much as a soda
there. If you bring a purse into the store when you're working,
management has to go through it to make sure we're not stealing. I
swear I will quit when they start doing strip searches before we leave
our shift. This post surprises me because in our area, employees are
treated as criminals while the customers can rip them blind. security
cameras are a joke, they focus on employees not customers. I know
employees are people and steal like customers, but when the police
laugh at you because they can't use security tapes as evidence due to
the fact that the cameras are focused on employees, it's embarrassing.
walgreens mantra is everyone is a theif, they're just waiting for the
opportunity to steal. I wouldn't shop here and.. they do pay me....

I work at Walgreens headquarters. I am sorry for your experience. I
assure you that it is not the interntion or will of Walgreens to treat
everyday customers like theives. But you need to understand that in
certain areas of the country and at certain stores theft is a stressed
issue for the store employees and manages. It is inevitable that
someone will be either watched closely or questioned about their
intentions at our stores. I am sorry that you experience has turned
you off of Walgreens, and hope that in time you will be able to
forgive the way you were treated and come back to Walgreens. Until
that day, best wishes.

I hate Walgreens as well! EVERY time I go there I have a bad
experience. I now try and avoid it if at all possible but sometimes
convenience wins. I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan and the one on
Fuller and Knapp is the worst! I have a LONG list of complaints
against that store as customer satisfaction must NOT even be on their
priority list. Every time they have a sale I practically am harrassed
if it doesn't ring up at the sale price as they then have to PROVE it
is on sale, while the line behind me gets longer. A lot of the time
they have already run out of the sale item also. Last night I went in
for the 3 pack of 8 hour Sony VHS tapes for $4.99 sale. They were out
but I saw that they had 3 of the EXACT same tapes individually
packaged and asked if they would give me the same price. NO OF COURSE
BIG DEAL! I needed the tapes LAST NIGHT! Those are only a few things.
There are more.
