14. I worked for a Walgreen's store when I started college back in 2005.
I worked there for about a year and a half as a grunt working the front register as well as the photo dept. on occasion. I hated every second of my time there. Management was awful at best and the pay was an insult for as much as we did for them. From the anti-union training video I should have known what I was in for when I was hired, but I was young and naive. The store manager was the type who never stepped foot on a college campus in his life (not even a CC) but gained his position only because of people he knew. That is a fact. He would come in around 10 AM everyday and leave around noon or so. All he did was walk around drinking his coffee and pointing out how you were fucking up. I'm glad to see them beginning to fail, if that is indeed the case.
