Founded over a century ago in 1901, Walgreens has a rich and colorful history of continuous improvement and innovation. From inventing the world’s first chocolate malted milkshake to the creation of one of the most popular and sophisticated mobile applications in retail shopping today, we have transformed ourselves into a leader within the retail and drug industry.
Walgreens, one of the nation’s largest drugstore chains, is included in the Retail Pharmacy USA Division of Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc., a global leader in retail and wholesale pharmacy.
I was placed on the buying team for Beauty and Personal Care for this past summer; specifically at the Cosmetics desk. I was really fortunate to be placed in my area, and on my team! Walgreens is aspiring to be a beauty destination which made my desk an extremely innovative and exiting place to work. My team was supportive, hard-working, and amazingly fun. Everyone at Walgreens is so genuine and outgoing; I always felt comfortable reaching out to others, and I was able to make many great contacts within the company in only a few months. Not only was my team’s guidance essential for my successes this past summer, but they also assigned me projects that were imperative to the future of Walgreens. I felt appreciated as an employee because the leaders throughout the organization valued my opinions and insights; I always knew I was doing meaningful work.
