So they recently announced stores with ID Now machines will be rolling out flu testing. And from there, each announcement has been worse and worse. It started with: only pharmacists will be able to do the flu tests. So we thought, “ok, the rph will have to step away from their other 1,000 duties to come to the window and talk the patient through doing the swab a time or two per day…annoying, to say the least.” THEN they said: pharmacists actually have to ADMINISTER the swab. And we started thinking, “ok wtf, we did not sign up for this…” And NOW it’s: as of 10/12 ALL drive thru testing will be discontinued and regardless of test type, the patient will be coming in the store to be tested. And if I could afford it, I would have quit on the fucking spot. I was on a conference call and they were acting like this is no big deal, it’s super safe, it won’t affect workflow, it won’t disrupt business in any way. Have any of these people even set foot in one of their pharmacies over the past two years?? It’s like they are living in some alternate universe and have no concept of what is ACTUALLY happening in their stores. My district alone has multiple pharmacy closures DAILY, and instead of focusing on getting their stores staffed and back to regular operating hours, they decide it’s the perfect time to heap more work onto their teams who are beyond burned out. And then they act like YOU are the crazy one if you bring up any concerns. I don’t even know why I’ve stayed on this long but it’s long past time to jump ship. My mental health just can’t take it anymore.

UPDATE: I called my DM this afternoon and put in my notice. Finishing up the pay period then I’m out.

Sorry for the length of the post, tried to keep it short but complete.

On Tuesday I was fired from Walgreens after 8.5yrs with the company. Not sure what to do now as I live in one state and work in another and a lot of stuff is in the air for me currently and the manager knew this and tried to time it right to hurt me the most. Advice??

When I first transferred to a new store out of state, it became evident quite quickly that one of the shift managers was a giant pervert and how he was able to keep his job as long as he had was beyond my understanding. The store manager was nice, but she lacked the ability to control the store, set expectations, and especially discipline staff and make sure they followed rules.

The shift lead 45-50yo pervert would constantly make crude and inappropriate jokes towards the highschool females, young customers, and any woman he would see as pretty. They had given up at reporting it to their peers and management as nothing would happen. The assistant manager also made no attempt to correct or discipline this behavior. This escalated to the point his advances and touches of a customer during a passport photo were too much and her boyfriend stormed into the store that same day after hearing what happened. Unfortunately, it happened right after that shift leader left for the day. Myself and the other asst manager on duty had him write a statement and we informed the store manager what happened. We also gave her the statement with contact info for both the woman that it happened to and her boyfriend. NOTHING WAS DONE and it was swept under the rug.

Fast forward a couple months and the advances towards the 18yo recent highschool grad escalated a lot. She went to the store manager for help, for changes to the schedule, and nothing happened. She went to me to make a report and I asked if she wanted me to escalate it after I helped adjust the schedule so she wouldn't have to work with him alone. At that point I used our reporting portal and issued a report. It once again was swept under the rug. That shift manager not long after physically cornered the 18yo coworker in the stockroom so she couldn't get away and pushed himself onto her trying to kiss her. After hearing of this I reported it again and had to make several waves and he was finally given the option to quit or have an investigation take place. He decided to quit. It was made apparent to me by the other employees at the store that I was the first one and the only one in the management chain at the store to actually care about the safety of employees and to be the only one to actually help fix the problems.

This then happened again months later with two completely different employees. Once again, it was with one employee having unwanted advances from her supervisor, a shift lead. I asked her if she wanted me to report it and also offered her the info of how to report it herself, whichever option she felt most comfortable with and ensured her I was available at anytime to help with this. The store manager made herself unavailable to this employee in a time of need and ignored the concerns.

The 17yo then sent a text to the store manager again illustrating she didn't feel safe at work working with ________ and how she could no longer work there if they would be scheduled alone together going forward. This text was ignored for several days and was never responded to until I confronted the store manager asking why she didn't reply to the message as it clearly said "read" next to it. Her response was, "oh, I thought it was from _______, so I didn't respond to it." So in her mind, apparently someone not feeling safe at work only matters if they are one employee, but not another. She ignored the request and kept them on the schedule together.

As a solution, I volunteered to take one of the cashier's shifts when she was scheduled to work with the man making advances after the store manager refused to change the schedule. This upset the store manager.

Ever since both of those events, the store manager held a grudge against me. She would constantly gossip about me to other managers in the district, make up things, and attempted to paint me as a villian while painting herself as a victim. She would even stalk me on social media, often sending screenshots to her company computer/email account of private posts I made, sometimes within a minute of me posting. Some of the posts also looked edited as if she was trying to frame me for violating company policy. The environment was quite toxic and she decided showing favoritism towards all other employees while denying me requests that she granted to everyone else.

Then a couple weeks ago came a bogus written warning for me not doing her job when it came to an early store closing. I followed company policy/SOP exactly as written but since there was no oversight to the writeup, it stayed on my file and could never be addressed by HR prior to her firing me. I was on vacation for a week and during that time I was told by other employees that our store manager was spending hours and hours each day looking through the cameras. It turns out she was watching my every move. After back from vacation, one night I closed alone as the cashier needed to leave right at 10. This was never a problem and was encouraged by the store manager if we still had more work to do, if we felt comfortable doing so, and as long as we didn't leave with bags when leaving alone.

So Tuesday came around and she called me into the office with another store manager present and notified me they were terminating me for closing the store alone (something everyone did) and for allegedly not punching out for a 15min break while leaving the store. Never once asking me ahead of time why I left and if I forgot to clock out if appropriate depending where I went and why. Sidenote, most days we wouldn't get our lunch breaks or paid 15min breaks, so the allegation for a paid break off company property didn't sound right, and it wasn't.

Our store is now upset, morale is killed, and shock overtook everyone that she stooped this low and actually did this as retaliation. Corporate HR has since received countless complaints from my coworkers informing them this was retaliation that was planned for a long time. She just simply waited to find enough tiny BS to justify a termination while also waiting for me to empty my PTO on a vacation to make it harder to land on my feet.

She was enraged the staff respected me more than her but could never figure out why. These are the types of people that now run the Walgreens stores as most of the good people have left. The company would rather drive away the hardworking employees that aren't afraid to make waves for what is moral, and instead would rather have a company of snakes and "yes-wo/men.”
