    Pros

    Easy hiring, scheduling was pretty flexible, and work was obviously not too difficult.

    Cons

    Poor management, seems they don't train their managers well at all and are constantly swapping them around.

    Advice to Management

    Interacting more with your employees isn't a weakness.

    Pros

    Okay place to work if you have nothing else going for you. Large network of stores in the area.

    Cons

    Unstable hours. Bad employee treatment. Slave work for minimal pay. Would not recommend anyone to work here unless you have no other option.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to make money and ignore the stress of the pharmacy employees

    Pros

    Easy going people to work with. Flexible work schedules and good supervisors.

    Cons

    Upper management and the corporate office have no idea what goes on in the store day to day. They have unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to Management

    The regional leaders and above need to run a store themselves in this economy and this work environment and learn a few things. I do not care if they ran a store 10+ years ago, that is not the same as now.

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck. Decent starting wage. Sometimes room to advance.

    Cons

    Work employees FT hours but only consider them PT. Management and Corporate are very unprofessional. Only follow policies occasionally and do not everyone equally.

    Advice to Management

    Management and corporate are very corrupt. Do not ever challenge them, even if they are doing something wrong, or unlawful as they will often throw it back at you. Over work their employees, and never properly train them.

    Pros

    great people, very flexible scheduling,

    Cons

    people in certain departments play favorites,
    depending on where you work, the workload isn't worth the pay

    Advice to Management

    decrease loss in product and profit, decrease prices, increase pay, take the time to focus on what trainees are being taught. It's not enough!
