    Pros

    Most efficient workflow in retail pharmacy when adequately staffed; endorsing many key pharmacist initiatives in MTM, screening for disease, and consultations. Training time given and most staff trained & competent with customer focus.

    Cons

    High investor-driven philosophy leading to short-term budgetary decisions that caused layoffs & lost or inconvenienced Rx customers (i.e. loss of Express Scripts in Jan 2012 only to have it back in Sept). Decisions not targeted to specific markets. Possible favoritism in store assignments.

    Advice to Management

    New initiatives were secondary to maintaining & increasing the patient base in competitive markets as in Ohio. While a difficult decision, too many were adversely affected by layoffs for what was less than a year of a suspended insurance contract.


  2. Inviting, and a wonderful learning experience.

    Pros

    They seem to hire the best they can find, and their training is extensive and second to none I've seen.

    Cons

    The hours can be bad if you don't do swing shifts well, but

    Advice to Management

    Provide more money to update the training, it's good but dated.
