Loved working with my team, everyone got along, the manager was great to work with you, if you needed to run home he understood. My mother had gotten very ill and she called for somed meds. He allowed me to run them to my house and get my mother settled down.

Pros and Cons
Just a great place to work at. It felt like home.
Work on the holidays but we had had a great time.

Culture and Values
On a scale of 1 to 10 in terms of a good employer on any metric, Walgreen is a -15. You not only lose your physical well-being, but you also lose your social and spiritual well-being. They change the schedule enough to turn you into an obedient zombie. On top of all those negative aspects, they demote you through rehiring stunts requiring a full-fledged interview process for employees who have worked for the company for 15, 25 or more years.

Pros and Cons
I cannot identify a single advantage. or pro.
Everything you can imagine that is bad, Walgreen is an example of the worse employer in the nation.
