    Certified Pharmacy Technician

    Certified Pharmacy Tech (Former Employee) Asheboro, NC

    ProsAll I can say is that it's a job.

    ConsVery hard to get a rais. I was there for 11 months and was still being paid minimum wage even though I had been promoted to full-time. No set work schedule. One day I would work from 7 am to 6pm. The next day 2 pm to 10pm. Hard to have a solid life outside of work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUp the pay to boost morale.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Bad corporate culture

    Shift Supervisor B (Current Employee)

    ProsIf in a good store with good coworkers and customers, can be enjoyable day-to-day

    ConsCorporate and upper management don't value individual employees. Launch programs that create more paperwork and responsibilities while cutting hours and taking power away from store-level workers. Try to send message that customer and employee satisfaction is paramount but laser focus on profits shows they just care about money.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
