Walgreens Complaint - Miserable Employees
ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- Walgreens employees are mothers, fathers, grandparents, and children with families and loved ones. In my part of Central Florida, not only do all Walgreens employees have to work Christmas eve and day, their "holiday bonus" is a WALGREENS GIFT CARD that is barely enough for a few incidentals. Children grow-up without spending a single Christmas morning with Mommy or Daddy because some customer forgot to buy milk the day before. Weekly schedules are not posted in advance so employees are not able to plan activities with family or friends. Vacation requests are left in limbo until the day before (or the day of) the vacation so no real vacation can be taken. Employees get sick time, but they had better not get sick and try use that time or they are made an example of. Salaried Executive Assistant Managers are often expected to work anywhere from 10 to 15 hours a day, 6 to 7 days a week "out of loyalty" while their bonus's are cut, their jobs are threatened, and their job satisfaction is zero.
Walgreens is always screaming to cut the budget, and they expect more to be done with less people in less time. That only works until a certain point and then all that happens is they create resentfully miserable employees giving crummy service. Until Walgreens steps up to the plate and really treats their employees the way they deserve to be treated (with dignity, respect, humanity, and decent monetary compensation) they had better start accepting their declining customer service scores. You can beat your dog, but one day it is going to turn around and bite you.
