Pros

All technicians have to be certified so you are not working with people who don't know there jobs. Workflow keeps everyone in place allowing the shift to run smoothly.Great benefits, can buy shares in the co, in-store discounts and online. Great pharmacists.

Cons

Shifts are constantly cut. Managers don't stay long because of the workload placed on them. Customers are horrid to the staff, and then are given gifts cards for their hissy fits. Need to higher more technicians for the number of prescriptions. Pharmacy constantly swamped. Be ready to deal with rude doctors and outsourced insurance agents who don't have a clue.

Advice to Management

Stop cutting shifts and add more technicians so the ones you have are not pulling their hair out. Without the extra help lots of mistakes are made making the company look incompetent.

    Pros

    Discount, flexibility with schedule, nothing else

    Cons

    I hate how we are forced to open on holidays. Every year the company seems to be going downhill when it comes to how to treat employees. Oh and be prepared to be over worked! Every time they schedule you in one position, they are most likely going to switch you around however they please and without your notice. Management very irresponsible.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees right!
