    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.

    Advice to Management

    I have no idea

    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

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your BC and realize this position isn't built to be a cookie cutter. Every Walgreen and location is different.

    No Opinion of CEO

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Be the shopfloor more & listen to the staff.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Walgreens Boots Alliance

    Pros

    Boots interview process aims to hire the friendliest people, not necessarily those with excellent experience in retail. For this reason you work s genuinely lovely bunch of people, many I consider friends after I've left.

    Cons

    Customers! But that was only thing I disliked sometimes. One manager was incapable of sticking to rules enforced by them on refund policies etc, and made stuff look incompetent when they back tracked on a decision we'd rightly made.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the God complex, and stick up for your staff when they rightfully stand by Boots own rules. It isn't a competition for favourites
