looking for a job
Hello, my name is Stephanie and i really want to work at this Walgreens because its closer to me so I can just take my bike because I have no car. Further more, I'm sixteen turning seventeen on August. Ever since i turned sixteen i always wanted to work. Above all, I really want a job so I can depend on myself and to take on a huge responsibility.
Recommendation for part time or full time work
I've seen some posts from people needing to fill in employment gaps, or just needing work. I highly recommend Walgreens. I have worked there part time for 6 months and it is a great company. I actually like it better than my full time job and I hate the thought of quitting it when I accept the offer for the position for which I've been interviewing (I got a call from HR yesterday and I should be getting the offer letter next week! ) but Walgreens has great benefits even for part time employees and who knows, it could lead to a career in retail for someone.
NO money for diapers!!
One time at work this woman came rushing in and was frantically looking for diapers for her baby. I helped show her where the aisle was. She explained that her 11-year-old son had grabbed the wrong bag for her on their way out. She was rushing and the baby was screaming so she hadn't been paying attention. Their bag had no baby supplies and they were far away from home when the baby needed a change. I tried to make her laugh and cheer her up as the baby was getting fussy. I told her this can happen to any mom. As she goes to pay she realizes her wallet is also in the other bag as well and she starts to get upset. I took the diapers from her and went to my co-worker's register and had her ring me out along with some wipes and some candy for her son. She hugged me with tears in her eyes. I never felt so good before. The next week wouldn't you know it she came back to the store and told us she wouldn't shop anywhere else but Walgreens. She handed me a check for $100 to thank me for "saving the day." I was shocked! I told her I was just doin what anyone else would. She said no one else would have helped them the way I had.
