    Too much for too little in a 24 hour

    Certified Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) Haltom City, TX

    ProsGood benefits for the most part. Employee discount comes in handy. Wages for techs is good if your certified.

    ConsUnbalance scheduling with lack of back up help for those who get sick. Never seem to get Management to hear you out. Have to check your pay or they gimp you on hours sometimes because of glitches in the clock or managers not adding in your time. Oh yes you will always be multitasking because they never have enough help.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire people who can stay longer then a couple of months. And hire people please.

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

    This company shows no respect to those that have made the company what it is today

    SFL (Current Employee) Fort Worth, TX

    ProsThe healthcare industry is strong therefore the company will continue to exist.

    ConsPoor pay, capped income levels, retail hours destroy family life, not much room for advancement, They are money hungry and could care less about me and my family. Have had 3 pay cuts over the past 5 years and am doing the same job. Only the store managers and pharmacists make any money and the company is working hard to find ways to cut their positions as well.When Jeff Rain our previous CEO left, so did the care for employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave some respect for your people as moral is horrible and everyone I know is wanting to get out. Get into the stores and talk to your employees. Not the managers but the little guys who have been hurt by the pay cuts.Even though your stock prices are soaring, your people hate what the company has done to them. Shame on you!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Shift Lead (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsEntry Level position: Go for It! You will learn a lot.

    ConsShift Lead is paid too little to deal with the verbal abuse from customers and the theft issues.
