Photo Technician
Walgreens is a national drug-store chain that focuses on customer loyalty, brand awareness, and iconic recognition. Since customer loyalty is a driving force, customer service has always been a large responsibility for all positions. However, much has been learned from working retail: point of purchase advertising, functionality of product and packaging design, and brand loyalty. All positions came with specialized responsibilities: creating displays, detecting professional photography, explaining and teaching customers about copyright laws and photo resolution, training new employees, and leading group projects due to natural leadership skills.
