    Former Freelancer - Beauty Consultant in Franklin, TN

    I worked at Walgreens Boots Alliance for less than a year

    Pros

    Good job with steady pay. Varied workplace and diverse.

    Cons

    I made more per hour with a college degree than most of my coworkers who has been there much longer. That makes for alot of contention in the workplace. Managers do nothing to stop it. Lots of bullies and flare ups.

    I have been working at Walgreens Boots Alliance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I love my customers and the loyalty to Walgreen ! I have meet some amazing people at Walgreen and I feel appreciated by them when I can accomplish their needs. I enjoy building lasting relationships and repeat customers. I also love the global brands and the thought of some day being known as a beauty store. I am very excited about the changes in the beauty department at Walgreen.

    Cons

    Walgreen isn't ready to be a Boots store like the UK. The customers would never walk into a neighborhood Walgreen thinking about seeing a beauty consultant to service their needs. This position doesn't allow you to growth. Your not allowed to do any task to keep your day busy or to your team members. The hours working 5 days in a row at 11 am - 7 pm is unrealistic and BORING

    I have been working at Walgreens Boots Alliance full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Every month there are new product launches something to get excited about in the world of beauty!

    Cons

    Short staffed and targets are ridiculous. There always an excuse to cut bonuses, pay rises (etc) not much room for progression! It's not what you do it's who you know.

    I have been working at Walgreens Boots Alliance

    Pros

    Independent job where I can build relationships in my business without competition going on around me such as other beauty advisors right next to me like at Nordstrom.

    Cons

    Rate of pay is determined if Advisor makes the goal for the month only which is unfair if certain conditions such as lack of stock arise.

    I worked at Walgreens Boots Alliance for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, staff have a great team spirit and join in local events to raise money for charity.You get to know first hand about great deals in store.

    Cons

    Not consistent as always changing management, which can affect staff morale and customer expectations. Your expected to keep up with training although never given time to complete.
