Pros

Decent pay for techs, the pharmacy staff is usually fun to be around.

Cons

Every few months they come out with these cheesy slogans they want us to say to every customer. When the pharmacy doesn't do well one week we get bashed for it, But when we exceed goal for a week we get no praise or no acknowlegment. Hours get cut randomly throught-out the year. We are alwasy short staffed because this is a company that would rather see their employess run around crazy then pay overtime so we can get some help when we're short.

Advice to Management

Acknowlege your employees for exceptional behavior. Pay overtime when needed

    Pros

    Really great pay, good benefits, healthcare is very good for singles. I enjoy the work, my managers, and most of my team mates.

    Cons

    The customers are absolutely horrible, this WILL get you down, it's just a matter of how much you're willing to put up with.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    in my store the manager is awesome
    easy job

    Cons

    typical retail schedule types.
    very low compensation, they'll cut hours for no reason so they can blow it on sponsoring everything instead of looking out for employees.

    Advice to Management

    care more about the little guys again.. your customer's are very important but so are your employees.
