    Pros

    Great training and computer system is good when working.

    Cons

    Company is continually cutting help. This is when customer complaints go sky high and mistakes happen

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time in pharmacy and understand the pressure back there. Huge lack of support from company.

    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.
