    Pros

    Flexible with letting you go to appointments if it falls in work hours. Good vacation time given.

    Cons

    Schedule is forever changing at a drop of a hat. Poor management. Everyone talks about everyone from management, pharmist, to techs. They thrive off of people's mistakes. They rather see someone fail so they can have something to talk about than actually training or correcting someone in a positive way. Drama, drama, drama

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and correct the problems at hand. All management needs to take a class on how to be one effectively. Also there is no favorites when you are a manager. As with almost everything everyone should be treated as equals no matter the type of employee they are and the employees that constantly complain about everything and everyone need to be handled because we all are tired of hearing it.

    Pros

    Lots of work to keep you busy.
    Overtime is (usually) available.
    If you are just starting out in pharmacy, this is a good place to get experience. But be ready to handle a lot of crap.
    If you've been in the pharmacy business for a while, look elsewhere. There are better places.

    Cons

    If you are a hard worker and am willing to take more of your share of work, you'll be abused. Most people walk out because they have been given too much for one person to complete in their work day. Or they walk out cussing and screaming.

    Raises are laughable. They will tell you that your raise will only be 3-4 cents because business is down but they can still afford a 60 inch flat screen to put in the front. You can't even read the TV!

    The company as a whole has no way to train their employees. You are expected to sit and watch someone else work on a UNIX like program and ten key at lightning fast speeds. Good luck! Do it on your own and then pharmacists will yell at you for screwing it up.

    Management make work days difficult when they should not. They are redoing someone else's work that they told to do and then the customers complain that they got the same drugs twice. Those will be sent back to the pharmacy for someone else to handle in returns. The management's idea to fix it is to go into the pharmacy and move around work stations and put up pretty boxes. Never really confronting the actual problem.

    Advice to Management

    Better find a way to keep your current employees happy or they will continue to walk out and you'll never have a full crew.

    Pros

    Company follows core business direction, benefits are average, management is adequately knowledgeable

    Cons

    For the past 5 years the Company has been shifting direction back to core business, thus eliminating entire lines of business including hundreds of jobs, have also outsourced many jobs during 2015 to offshore companies, and from a retained employee standpoint the increases for exceptional performance always fall very short of published cost of living increases.

    Advice to Management

    Support the US economy by buying and hiring American.
