Haidee – Real Estate Manager: I actually trained for two whole years before I became a Real Estate Manager. I basically shadowed different Real Estate Managers throughout the two years. But it was very intense, and that is just part of the commitment that the company has to train you correctly to be able to do your job the best you can once you get to it.
Luann – HR Generalist: Walgreens is very good about providing any kind of training that you need. As a new employee, you come in and have orientation. They train you on whatever job you happen to be doing. I've gotten to travel extensively as part of my training to learn how the HR process works within Walgreens. They offer training if you would like to move forward in other areas. Walgreens promotes from within, which is a wonderful thing. That was one of the things that drew me to the company. I know I have opportunities to move forward and even move out of areas beyond HR.
Ella – Store Manager: Throughout the fifteen years I've been with the company, I have had different district managers and different regional VPs that have allowed me to see the different management styles and their ideas. It's allowed me to grow to be a better person and to be the manager I am today.
Joshua – Onsite Pharmacist: Within Walgreens, there are several formal training programs offered, including the technician training program that is offered to my technicians. It's very important to me because it allows me to work alongside someone who I can trust to do their job properly because they have been trained. Another formal training program that was offered to me was a CE program that educated me on HIV services, which is something that we do a lot of at my store. We service a lot of HIV patients, and I've done that for several years with the company.
