Pros

Supportive culture. Engaged employees have good chances for development and promotion.

Cons

Pharmacy technician support payroll has been restructured within the last 3 years to support pharmacy-pyramid profitability, but with the unintended consequence of decelerating sales growth in low-volume pharmacies (thus prolonging time required to achieve profitability). Pharmacists at low-volume pharmacies work without a technician for a majority of the operating hours.

Advice to Management

By decreasing the number of pharmacy technician hours, we have increased the cost of tasks those technicians once performed, because the pharmacists must now carry out those duties [at their much higher pay rate relative to pharmacy technicians' pay rate]. Also, pharmacists engaged in technician duties are performing suboptimally, because if a technician were present more often, the pharmacists could spend more time building genuine relationships with pharmacy Guests.

    Pros

    Great team members, friendly environment, and nice management. They also approve all swap times and you don't necessarily need to swap if you know ahead of time because they approve almost all request time offs.

    Cons

    Not really that much cons. Only the work is a bit of a work out depending what department your in and sometimes repetitive.

    Advice to Management

    I would say just be a little kinder an try to find an individuals potential for a better raise. Just a little more appreciation would be nice.

    Pros

    Dynamic work environment.
    Plenty of opportunity to move around.
    Decent benefits and discounts.
    People are chosen to be fun.

    Cons

    New employees don't get much recognition for great performance and tend to all be lumped together.
    Established employees/management pat themselves on the back, a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Try to praise new team members a little more for the tasks that established members already do. For example; proper (or any) walkie communication, as some people are shy or unsure what to say; taking the initiative to help guests when established team members are busy chatting among themselves; handling an opening or closing shift alone. These are all examples where a new team member deserves praise, even if the job wasn't performed perfectly. After all, if they're doing something sub-par and they're otherwise a very competent and reliable person...it's most likely not the new member's fault something wasn't done properly...Either there was a fault in the training, or miscommunication somewhere along the line.
    There is a certain make it or break it period for many new employees. If you constantly tell them what they've been doing wrong (when they weren't informed how to do it right to begin with) without praising whatever progress they've been making while training...it will result in a worker who will not be passionate about coming to work and the worker will only perform minimal duties. If you remember to praise new team members when they are doing things right, it will keep their morale up and result in a worker who will be more likely to stay, and is always willing to put in some extra effort; this applies even after the initial learning/'settling in' period ends, and the praise stops.
