    Pros

    Welcoming environment
    Employee meal deals where you get any Starbuck's drink and a sand which for $5
    They add to your 401K

    Cons

    It is hard to get lots of hours when starting out

    Advice to Management

    If you need more help with cashiering on any given day, please call employees who have that day off to ask them to come in to work.

    Pros

    Pay, Benefits, Most of Management are good people, Recession Proof, work as hard as you want to, Home almost every night

    Cons

    Forced over niter's, get home every day but usually at midnight or worse, scheduling vacation or personal events are difficult. Unable to get time off unless you have 10 years seniority at certain times of the year. Forget home time during holidays outside of Christmas and Thanksgiving for ten years. Takes 10 years to get a weekend off that isn't vacation or four day schedule. Office Gossip/Politics, Management constantly trying to fix things that are not broken. A lot of unwritten rules.

    Advice to Management

    Don't fix what is not broken, just because something sounds good from the office doesn't mean it is a good thing on the road.

    Pros

    Plenty of hours and schedule flexibility for part-time techs. Friendly work environment within the pharmacy. Ability to help patients

    Cons

    At times there seemed to be a disconnect between the management and the pharmacy. Sometimes other employees seemed hostile or unfriendly towards pharmacy employees.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with the pharmacy and other departments. Make everyone feel like part of the team. Listen to the pharmacy employees when it comes to issues that may arrise.

    Pros

    The people are great and the culture is amazing. There is also plenty of opportunity for advancement for reliable employees.

    Cons

    The biggest downfall I've found is that the pay is nothing special. It is a little bit better if you are full-time, but it is not enough to support a family on if you are earning hourly wages.

    Advice to Management

    Good employees need competitive compensation if you want them to stick around. Several good people have recently decided to leave the location I'm at because the pay is better elsewhere.
