You had it in the military and you can have it here too. You may be leaving the military, but you still have that same drive to lead, make a difference and better the lives of others. Consider Walgreens. Our mission is to help all people live healthier every day and veterans are a big part of our plans. That’s because we know that hiring a military veteran is one of the best decisions we can make. You’re proven leaders, quick learners, team players, and you know how to get the job done and motivate others with passion and pride.
Look below to learn how we support our veteran employees, and what opportunities are available as you transition from the military to civilian life.
Many veterans programs only offer a job. Walgreens is doing more by offering a path to store management. Our HERO Program is designed with our veterans in mind. The program merges the opportunity to continue to enhance your leadership experience in the civilian world, while pursuing a bachelor’s degree to help you achieve your educational goals.
HERO Program participants will enjoy:
Store positions include:
W-Vets Business Resource Group (BRG): You’ll have the opportunity to join a grassroots network of current Walgreens team members composed of former veteran and military service members, active National Guard and Reserve service members, and military and veteran supporters. Activities include networking, peer mentoring, professional development and community service opportunities.
Employer Support of Guard and Reserve (ESGR): Walgreens has proudly pledged to recognize, honor and enforce the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act, and to ensure our managers and supervisors have the tools they need to effectively manage team members who serve in the National Guard and Reserve.
We are also proud to offer Military Leave and Military Bridge Pay to eligible team members and employee store discounts are extended to spouses and eligible dependents.
