  • By the end of your ten-week internship, you'll know just what it means to manage a Walgreens store.
  • It’s also an opportunity for us to seek exceptional students, prior to their senior year of college, to train for future management consideration. Get paid to learn!
  • Minimum GPA: 2.75
  • The internship is for the summer of 2013
  • Interns are paid hourly
