A colleague got offered a role at Walgreens for $94k as a fresh grad. Was this just a total rip off from Walgreens or is this actually average base salary for Walgreens as a fresh grad?

When I first started at Walgreens in 2018 I was over 100k. Raises are rare at Walgreens unless they want to be a pharmacy manager then they’ll get a pay increase but as a pharmacy manager it’s not worth it. Cvs definitely pays a lot more!

Unfortunately I don’t know what their starting pay is but they always pay more than Walgreens from my experience. I heard if you want to work in Indiana there’s a 100k sign on bonus plus they’ll cover I think 25k in moving expenses. I recently saw a posting about that.

I was offered $53/hour from Walgreens in 2020 as a new grad.

That is very low for full time hours anywhere in the US.

If its in California please don't take anything less than 60.00 per hour.

I was a new grad pharmacist in 2020 as well with Walgreens in Florida and a current pharmacy manager. My starting pay was roughly $45/hr or 75K in a 64 work week, then got promoted to 80hr staff pharmacist to equate to 94K. Then once promoted to manager my salary is roughly under 109K or $50/hr. Walgreens underpays and I’m currently searching for a better paying role which may unfortunately be CVS

In FL, at the beginning of this year, Wag was offering $45/hr for new hires.

Ouch… really rewarding their “heroes” of the pandemic

Your market will heavily influence your pay. Urban areas tend to pay less due to a high demand for jobs. I’m currently at a rural Walmart in Louisiana starting full time with 118k salary. First job as a pharmacist too! The jobs are out there but be prepared to move and network.

Las Vegas Rxm. Last year salary 131k not including 14k bonus. I dont know about floater pharmacists or staff though

Las Vegas staff Rph. 118k.
