....sending your store pharmacists and personnel out to call on Doctors offices asking to send patients to Walgreens. ....threatening store employees with bad reviews if they do not, offer blue basket to customers or do not say "be well" or do not offer a suggestive sell item. ....having your employees call former rx customers to convince them to come back. ....issuing "the value of Walgreens Part I and II". ....cutting store hours and eliminating many 24 hr stores. ....running stores with the bare minimum and eliminating Store Managers to be replaced by essentially the same role at less pay. ....buying back shares to manipulate EPS. ....and top off the mismanagement of this "dynasty" by giving "themselves" huge salaries, bonus and more and more benefits.
This person is correct. The stress level is extremely high. Management everywhere is looking for other opportunities. Morale is extremely bad. We are all scratching out heads wondering what the hell is happening up in corporate. Talk of employees getting together to sell WAG all at once and buy ESRX in protest. Brain Drain is starting. Management, and employees with 20+ years at the company are starting to leave. I am telling you, it is not good working at walgreens at the moment...not good at all. This is no longer a career.
