    Pros

    Very relaxed job, nothing too serious.

    Cons

    They expect too much out of you. If you are a cashier that works in a different department, you will always have to help up front.

      Neutral Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Acme Markets full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Good Benefits and Salary. Enjoyed working in a supermarket environment. If you can dealt with the corporate and retail downside of practicing pharmacy and focus on the work you are doing for your patients, its a good place to work but once a pharmacy manager life gets complicated.

      Cons

      Not enough technician help. Care more about profit than patient care. Guided by non pharmacy retail initiatives more than healthcare priorities.

      Advice to Management

      Stop acting like corporate puppets and remember why you became a pharmacist.
