    Internship

    Former Employee - Intern in Caloocan, Caloocan (Philippines)

    I worked at Mercury Drug as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Mercury Drug is the leading and biggest Pharmacy company in the Philippines. Pharmacy Interns get access to all the resources of the pharmacy site they are assigned to --- and these resources are helpful in making the interns knowledgeable of drugs (their use/s, drug class, contents and more).

    Cons

    The internship does not come with any form of compensation, and therefore interns shoulder the expenses of getting to the internship site on a daily basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A defined list of activities throughout the internship program can be made to make the experience more fun and exciting.

    Mercury Drug is one stable company.They offer good benefits including health and medicines. They provide rice subsidy every other month in the form of cash.Incentives,transportation subsidy,profit sharing,anniversary bonus,performance incentives and of course the christmas bonus.

    Cons

    As a Pharmacist as well as an Assistant branch manager its very hard for me because i performed dual position and at the same time i fill up the position where there is a need to performed prompt service . Most of my days spent I have no regular rest days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to take care of the Pharmacist specially ABMRP' s . Try to appreciated the fact that Pharmacist are the life of a drugstore .

    I have been working at Mercury Drug

    Pros

    It is a good training ground for new professionals.

    Cons

    Pharmacist' were not given the appropriate respect for their profession.
    Some supervisors are destroying the reputation of the employees by eavesdropping about them to other branches. In addition to this, tension was created until working is already not enjoyable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give due respect to the position of your Pharmacist for they deserves every inch of their profession. They should be given the appropriate and sole authority of decisions regarding the dispensing of medicines especially the prescription and dangerous drugs. Watch some of your supervisors thoroughly for they destroyed the reputation of your employees leading to the destruction of the smooth flowing working relationship that should be present in the company.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Tanque, Quezon City (Philippines)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Tanque, Quezon City (Philippines)

    I worked at Mercury Drug

    Pros

    Very good benefits. It makes up in benefits what it lacks on salary. They usually give bonuses often, I think quarterly.

    Cons

    Uncompetitive salary compared to other community pharmacies. The job might be tiring for some because of the heavy customers in peak hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Benefits are good but it would be better if you would also raise your employee's salary. Other pharmacies of smaller companies are able to that. I think you can also since you are a large company.
