    Pros

    Great place to work all the pharmacist are really nice and proffesional. the totally work with your schedule
    and are really understanding.

    Cons

    The cut hours way too much and it is not reliable if you have bills to pay because you never know exactly how many hours you will get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase number of employees and service will be faster and more realible. Instead of customers comig and picking up their prescriptosn then getting upset.

    Pros

    Great experience, you learn a great deal about pharmacy and how everything operates. You get insight into how the pharmaceutical industry works.

    Cons

    sometimes under-staffed which makes for angry customers. people don't understand what it takes to get a script filled and often take it out on you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for more techs during busy hours and don't over-stretch current techs with more work than possible.

    Pros

    If you get in the right people you can have whatever schedule you want, and they have pretty good policies on vacation

    Cons

    a lot of times management doesn't take action when something needs to be done. they often don't communicate with the employee which can be frustrating if you are doing something that isn't correct or should be done differently they will often write you up, not explain what you did and how to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to your employees, most of the time their complaints are not just talk. they are real, problems that need to be addressed

    Pros

    The Store Manager cared about you and how you were doing.

    Cons

    No personal growth what so ever, The pay is awful and the way the district treats their employees and the expectations are so much to handle at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about the service your employees are giving and pay them more for all that you ask from them..
