  • Walgreens Careers - Life at Walgreens - Meet our Team Members
    time I started out doing recruiting then began setting up training across my shift So while handing payroll issues and covering benefit meetings I was also getting to help shape our environment It s been an incredible experience On her approach to work My previous job became very routine so when I came here I was thrown into this new and exciting environment It s helped me focus and stay driven Also with everyone dedicated to quality customer service it motivates you in many ways On the most rewarding part of her job Watching my team members grow and be successful especially those with disabilities Sometimes on their first day you think Will this person make it But to see them come out of their shell and become an all around productive team member is amazing On innovation We have technology and equipment that helps accommodate our team members with disabilities What s even more amazing though is the fact that these alterations weren t expensive but their effectiveness was quite measurable On her interests outside of work I love to ski I actually do what is called mono skiing Although it s a little difficult here in South Carolina I like to do it as much as possible I also travel a few times a year and love to spend time outdoors with my friends and family There are so many mentors and so many avenues for you to learn and move about in the company Syreeta Senior Real Estate Manager On why she chose Walgreens I chose Walgreens because it is an amazing Fortune 50 company in the Chicagoland area I am originally from Chicago and so I grew up shopping at Walgreens I have some family members that work for Walgreens as pharmacists and I realized how highly they spoke of the company and how well respected Walgreens is throughout the industry On the advice she d give to candidates Have good communication problem solving and multi tasking skills Talk to as many real estate managers in the company as you can It really is fascinating to see how they manage different territories with different backgrounds and different personality types On her approach to work I realized that this is really a family environment and everyone just wants to help out So if you have any questions just ask There is so much knowledge and so many different people to ask and they are always willing to help I think that is one way that I have changed my style reaching out to more people and really cultivating relationships within Walgreens On impacting Walgreens mission When a successful store opens it is just a really good feeling to know that people have access in another area In Orlando I showed my parents a store that was once a Shell gas station and here I was responsible for it now being a Walgreens On innovation On the real estate side we started out with the GIS program which was fairly new That evolved to the current real estate packet where we can pull together those GIS maps and demographics and not have to identify each item We also have a competitive database now On her interests outside of work Reading Traveling is important Spending time with my family I travel a lot for work so whenever I get to see them it is a really great time I try to go on one international trip per year You get a chance to change people s lives and it has been very rewarding for me Dan Divisional Vice President Distribution Centers On why he chose Walgreens It seemed like Walgreens was always a company that cared for people And it seemed within its own environment like a company that would be progressive with its customers and its services On his recent work experiences We finished two distribution centers where 40 of the workforce can have some sort of disability cognitive or physical We are giving opportunities to people that have never had a job before I have met with some parents that cried because they thought their child would never have this chance We have changed people s lives On the advice he d give to candidates You have to be an individual who enjoys and recognizes the value of change Something I can tell you from my 33 years from my own personal growth is that it is always something new You always ask How can I do something better It s not accepting the status quo On his approach to work What I do and what I would look for people to do is to be constructive teachers and communicators We can teach you the job We can teach you the numbers but your ability to convey and communicate is so important So that not only do you understand but your team understands as well On why he works here Because I can teach people effect change and make a difference to the stores we service as well as those we work with each day On his interests outside of work Exploring new locations and experiences Avid reader on any new subject and especially working with children Throughout my life I was always the soccer coach the Cub Scout co chair the things to support and make a difference to people and their lives That for me is the most rewarding helping people live healthier and happier lives Silvia Industrial Engineer On her role I first joined as an intern performing projects in different departments receiving split case full case and shipping to improve the efficiency in the distribution of products to our stores Now I am the Industrial Engineer and concentrate on our material handling systems processes and capital projects I help in finding better processes and implementing new ideas On the advice she d give to candidates You have to be very creative and very actively involved An open mind is also essential as you have to think fast in order to deal with issues more efficiently One thing that I think is very important especially here with the variety of areas is to have a set of goals that you want to reach On her next steps Right now I m planning on getting my master s in engineering management I plan on staying put but in the future I want to move more into operations the engineering department or the Pharmacy operation division On her approach to work When you approach issues and problems with any system or process you need to prioritize the best approach Every situation can be resolved it s just a matter of having the tools support and the patience to do it Walgreens provides all of this Regarding process improvement projects I try to look for the best for our team members customers and for building efficiency On the culture It s flexible You don t need to be at your desk 90 of the time and that s something I love being out on the floor seeing the operations running the people how they are working On her interests outside of work I love to spend time with my family I like to roller skate like the ones with 4 wheels I like to mountain bike play basketball dance and travel I work for a company that has integrity and really cares about its employees Deetta General Manager Central Pharmacy Operations On why she chose Walgreens I grew up with Walgreens stores around us and I trusted the company Then I toured a facility and I was very impressed with the people the management and the system that was in place That pretty much sold me on it On the advice she d give to candidates In considering this position I would say get as many skill sets as possible Learn as much as possible Don t be afraid to ask questions because there is always someone here that wants to help you Believe in yourself know that you can do the job and just stay focused On support We are encouraged to grow as individuals We are encouraged to be open and compassionate and to be able to see the other side of the coin and other points of view On impacting Walgreens mission It s important to provide good customer service so customers can access and understand their medication and maintain a long and healthy life My drive and determination to help with customer service helps build a rapport and that sense of community When our customers see me they know that they can trust us Within our company I reach out and mentor individuals who may need it to help them grow and reach their full potential On why she works here I like to make a contribution to others lives I think it is important I trust the company I like the company and I like what it stands for I like the stability of the company I work for a company that has integrity and cares about its employees and you can t really say that about big companies any more On her interests outside of work My children Reading novels going to movies Being very close knit with my family and friends I have had nothing but the support of my superiors when it comes to making things happen They are always willing to help me reach my goals in my own store Josh Health Care Onsite Manager On why he chose Walgreens I had heard about Walgreens and knew they were hiring Technicians From what I had seen just from the interview the computer system was amazing I am a very technical person and after interviewing with a couple of different pharmacies I saw that Walgreens had a more advanced prescription processing program that seemed very fun to use On his recent work experiences I am classified as more of a Store Manager but because we are a pharmacy only I work more with providers selling our pharmacy to them I work with them to meet their requests for patient care we strive to make it easier to get their patients in and out not only out of the hospital but out of outpatient clinics I find out what the providers needs are and then I work alongside my pharmacy manager to implement some of the programs that we offer to clinics and to patients On the advice he d give to candidates I think you really have to be self motivated to move into the onsite stores A lot of the onsite stores are running as their own entities We are covered under district supervision but we are given the task of promoting our business on our own and we are held to strict increases in sales so we have to think outside the box On innovation If I can say this without sounding biased my store in particular has been very innovative We bring together the homecare piece the pharmacy piece and specialty pharmacy and make it all work together We are able now to access prescriptions on Medmarc our specialty pharmacy in Pittsburgh and we have access to our fertility pharmacy s records through one computer system that was put in place here in our store On why he works here The advancement opportunities have been amazing I have had nothing but the support of my superiors when it comes to making things happen They are always willing to help me reach my goals in my own store It is just this support system that has brought me to believe that this is the pharmacy that I want to work for On his interests outside of work I love to travel if I could travel every weekend I would Right now I am really enjoying working out and fitness and getting back into shape Actually in my entire life I never imagined I would run but I am really starting to enjoy it it helps clear the mind Before you become a pharmacist work at Walgreens as a technician because it is the best training you can get Kelly Certified Sr Pharmacy Technician On why she chose Walgreens I got a job here because this is where all my friends worked I started in the front of the store when I was 16 Then I moved to cosmetics and photo and then on to pharmacy as a Technician So then I went to pharmacy school On the culture It is a very open environment Everyone is encouraged to learn and grow and they make sure that anyone who wants to move forward in their jobs can regardless of handicap disability race culture sex etc They just opened the distribution center for people with disabilities which is huge And they are bringing a lot of that into the stores On support When I started working in pharmacy the Pharmacists I worked with were unbelievable They knew I had an interest in the medical field and they trained me the whole way Even when I went to school they were always asking about what I was learning and wanted to talk about it On impacting Walgreens mission Pharmacists are going to have a huge role in providing basic preventative measures We ll be doing vaccinations And we ll have diabetes stores and educators tips to diabetics how to eat how to use machines At my store we are starting with blood pressure So we have more time in the stores to counsel and actually help people On innovation There s been bar code verification as a safety feature the scanning of prescriptions remote verification where if I am getting busy a pharmacist down the street can check the prescription and help me out There have been a lot of changes that have made the job easier and freed up time On her interests outside of work I like to shop I work out and hang out with friends I just started to get free time Now I have to find things to fill my time We are not just a service oriented provider We provide healthcare Larry General Manager WIRS On why he chose Walgreens I didn t choose Walgreens Walgreens chose me My best friend had just gotten an internship for the summer but was already working at Walgreens as a Pharmacy Intern Seeing as that Walgreens wouldn t let him work both internships he asked me to take his place as a pharmacy intern for the summer I started in 1982 and never left On the advice he d give to candidates Most of us who go into pharmacy think that this is our only path for career satisfaction but long term care or home infusion can also be very rewarding Not only do you become a healthcare provider but you also are intricately involved in the care of the patient It focuses even more on the one on one and takes the aspect of just dispensing out of it You become more of a clinician On his recent work experiences Even though the end of the story is not always the best outcome it is really rewarding that we give back to the community I had the pleasure of knowing a 9 year old little girl for 2 years Well she was 7 when she came in and 9 when she passed away I became extremely engrained in the family providing that care Just knowing the impact we can make in families out in communities is probably the most important part of the job On the most rewarding aspects of Walgreens You re making a difference Sometimes you don t see that from a retail point of view because you re so busy counting pouring and sticking However when the day s done I certainly feel fulfilled knowing that I have done something to contribute to bettering people s lives On innovation During my first couple of years at Walgreens we typed every prescription on a manual typewriter and then electric typewriters became cutting edge Now we re using the Intercom Plus Walgreens isn t just happy with providing a service they re making sure we are ahead of the next wave On his interests outside of work My family I love basketball and going to Disneyland I really am helping patients By the time I m done talking with them they always say Oh that was great I m glad I called Neepa Pharmacist On why she chose Walgreens The name I grew up in the Midwest where you see Walgreens everywhere I have a lot of friends who work here and heard that there were a lot of opportunities I also wanted something with flexible hours and a place where I could interact with people On the culture All of the different departments are great They do a fantastic job of hiring good management and everyone here is friendly and helpful I ve always had managers who were as flexible as possible and good tech help everywhere I went It s really a family environment where we are encouraged to think differently Walgreens even has an online suggestion box where you can submit new and unique ideas via email On impacting Walgreens mission It s all about the customer We re able to have that one on one time with each patient We even have the time to walk out from behind the counter to help them find the right product On innovation We definitely have the best computer systems available with great references online Walgreens focus on improving technology has made a huge impact here We also started using the POWER Program this frees up the pharmacist to focus more on patient care We re now able to spend more time talking to the patient and even less being stuck behind the counter doing the billing and making calls On why she works
