resolved to the customer's satisfaction
I have been working at Walgreens for five and a half years. I have learned every area of the store, except pharmacy. This includes photo, cosmetics, main, sims and have worked the stock room. I constantly watch people get hired in the company one day and then a year later are management. I have busted my ###, not goofing off, listening to mangement, being polite to the customers, etc. When I went for an interview for assistant manager I was told in exact words, "You don't have super star quality." The thing that irks me even more is that my EXA- step below store manager, doesn't even know photo, which is mandatory for all management. How do you know more then even some managers and get turned down???? I am not one to complain about much. I haven't ever gone to district and complained about how our store manager belittles everyone in the store, thinking that he is smarter then everyone else. He has very little respect for people in general, including the customers. He has made every woman in our store cry at some point. The sad thing about it, this is the type of people district looks for as management, not kind and considerate people, but people who treat their employees like ###. It's not that I didn't have "super star" quality, it is that I don't have "###" quality. Another thing is they push for the employees to sell the "Item of the Month" so much, that some people have even been threatened to lose their job if they didn't sell more. That is the reason they gave me for not getting a mangement position. I didn't sell enough. They want the employees to pester every single customer that walks through the door. I thought it was a freaking pharmacy not Telemarketing. I didn't know the quality of my worth was based on how much I sell. We have actually had customers complain about being bothered every time they come in, to buy the the Item of the Month. People don't want to be haressed when alot of them are elderly and just coming in to get their perscription filled. All in all, I think Mr. Walgreens would be disappointed to see his family company become just another victim to coperate america. Walgreens used to care about their employees, now they only care about opening stores and sucking people of every dime they have. They look at loyal employees as dispensable, and have even used the economy as a means to scare them into doing things they didn't have to do before. I would not recommend this establishment as a place to work.
