Great company to work for, except for any special requests from upper management will surely be denied.

Pros

Pushes their pharmacists to assume a more clinical role instead of being the average "pill pusher"
Plenty of OT if desired
Making many advances in retail pharmacy

Cons

Impossible to get vacations/time off approved
Very short staffed at some locations
New hires don't get enough training

Advice to Management

With the abundance of PRN pharmacists out there, it would be great to be able to get some vacation time approved instead of having every single day of the year closed off. Also, it would be great to re-adjust the budget so that we can get a mid-shift pharmacists in ALL stores that average over 500 scripts a day.

    Pros

    Good work life balance but getting worse. Was once a great company to work for. Chance to work on your feet.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything other than work life balance is in flux with this company right now. Job security is all but gone. Always worried when the ax will come down. They already cut the bonus and have made it harder to meet any reasonable goals.

    Advice to Management

    Think like a customer.
