Busy pharmacy means less time to learn

I worked at Osco Drug

Pros

Practical pharmacy experience in a challenging setting. The management was helpful in allowing time off as needed, and was always very understanding of situations. The pharmacists really wanted interns to have the opportunity to learn as much as possible, but with the high volume and low staffing this wasn't always a priority.

Cons

My store was so busy it was difficult to find opportunities to teach the interns. Instead, most became glorified cashier/technicians. It was rarely delineated as to which technician or intern should be doing which job (eg. out window, in window, drive-thru etc.) ego, most people picked a spot and stuck to it. This made it very difficult to learn the various positions in the pharmacy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to allow every student a balanced work schedule so they can benefit the most from this work opportunity.
