    Pros

    Manageable pace in pharmacy allows you to get to know your customers/patients

    Cons

    Tech hours you earn from prescription sales does not carry over so if you are slow one week and busy the next you can find yourself with little or no technician support

    Advice to Management

    Allow some carry over of technician hours so that the pharmacist can have more freedom to initiate events in the pharmacy (ex, health awareness and prevention, disease management clinics, etc)

  3. Great life experience, especially for teenagers.

    Pros

    Randalls has a great work-life balance; they're very flexible with their hours and will work with you when it comes to scheduling. Hourly employees get a raise every 6 months depending on performance.

    Cons

    There will always be rude customers; don't let them get to you. Can be very stressful if your store is understaffed. Also, although it's not impossible to move up in your store, it's not exactly common.

    Advice to Management

    Give the stores more hours instead of cutting them every chance you get. Cutting your staff down to a skeleton crew stresses them out, and it's much harder to tolerate rude customers when we're stressed out.

    Pros

    Employees and Customers are excellent to be around most of the time, everyone is friendly to talk to and are happy to see each other

    Cons

    Company has a plan and it mostly involves controlling costs by reducing labor usage and bleeding more work out of the employees that remain

    Advice to Management

    How can you call yourself great at customer service when there is no one to help customers and they know it?

    Pros

    Great place to gain experience being a cashier. Learn how to handle all types of money, including checks, food stamps, and especially coupons. Build character in knowing how to interact with customers and fellow employees.

    Cons

    The pay was not as high as other comparable stores. Sometimes, the lines would never seem to end. Occasional system failures.
