    Most unethical place to work... ever.

    Director (Former Employee)
    Cincinnati, OH

    ProsThis is a fast paced business with lots to do. If you play the politics properly, you will do well.

    ConsSr. Management, HR. Don't ever complain that the rules are being broken... you will be shown the door.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake an ethics class

    It's absolutely crazy that most of the reviews are the same across the entire country!!!

    Pharmacy Tech (Current Employee)
    Toledo, OH

    ProsHard work does pay off with promotion and pay increase. I certainly don't make a ton of money, but its enough to live, and I have benefits for my family. The company is trying to improve on many different levels, it can be frustrating at times, but I believe the proper steps are in order. At my site our management has had some trouble for sure, but our site has definitely put effort into growing our management team. I'm impressed with the outcome so far. I've had ups and downs here, but for sure I was supported by management in the best way they could.

    ConsIt's still too hard to weed out slacking workers, too many corporate hoops to jump through. If an employee has exhibited poor performance over and over, why keep coaching them. Why can't we just get rid of them already. The overtime and varied hours can be very annoying!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to train and improve your employees that show potential, and please STOP trying to improve those that obviously do not have any potential for simple tasks. Continue with growth and opportunities within each vessel of this monster corp. Reward hardworking and dedicated employees, they deserve it!!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    nice people, absolutely no communication

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosnice co-workers. decent salary

    Consno communication with superiors, anywhere. everything was a deep, dark secret. people w/ no qualifications except a high school diploma, supervising people w/ advanced degrees

    Advice to Senior Managementtake some courses and learn your job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It's a job that helps pay some bills

    Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee)
    Panama City, FL

    ProsMost coworkers easy to work with, PTO days useful, potential to learn exists

    ConsAlmost no positive reinforcement so it feels thankless and mindnumbing. Negative reinforcement is the standard, no bonuses, no chance for promotion, bad communication between front and back, gossip and favoritism undermine morale. High turnover. Very stressful with no reward.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry doing an episode of Undercover Boss. It wouldnt hurt to let your employees know they do a good job once in a while. Require every employee to visit a nursing home to see who is affected the most by what we do. All we hear about is the financial bottom line and no one ever focuses on the people we impact. Very depressing and frustrating to work for this company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
