Hey Walgreens is an excellent company to work for. I just finished the management program and am now an assistant manager for a store in Memphis South District. Awesome company to work for and awesome benefits. I started at the bottom though and worked up to it and I plan on going further. Lemme know how it goes.

Also Trigga, I know there are walgreens there and they start photo techs out higher than the rest of the departments other than pharmacy. You might put your application in there. Being from there myself I know there are plenty to choose from
It is a great company to work for. As a part timer I get better taken care of than people working other part time jobs around here. I have the option to move up, don't really want to though. Best of luck.

What'* useful has been said. Look online and go door to door, and give a good first impression.

I have a quick question. Does anything about your employment history comes up in a background? Also, how often do managers actually call your past employer'* for a reference?

Are you worried about something?

I always assume an employer would check out past employers. I don't really know how many do. It depends on the employer. But if you don't want them to find out about something, I'd leave that particular employer off your resume unless you absolutely need it.

As far as background checks, like info you can find online through different sources, I don't think you can find employment history...only addresses, names, etc. IIRC.

Not to mention that employers don't like it when you blow dust off of old threads

A background check is a criminal check usually done at the local city or Sherrif'* office. What will usually show up is your arrest record, not your convictions, so you may have some explaining to do.

When calling your former employer, afaik, all that can legaly be dicussed is your wage, length of employment, first/last day worked, and if they would hire you again.

Now that last question can be a killer if they respond with a no.

Ahh, yes criminal record, that'* what I forgot to say. The most important reason for a background check.
