    Try caring about your employees, you put customers (even the awful ones) above anyone and put us in the sewer.
    Horrible pay + bad treatment = Dissatisfied workers

    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.
