    I have been working at Albertsons Savon Pharmacy part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, and close to home. Also unionized so it's hard to get terminated. Can also assist in other departments if needed.

    Cons

    If you aren't a favorite, you likely won't be promoted. Another con is doing the same things all day. Also lots of favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating all your employees equally.

    I worked at Albertsons Savon Pharmacy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay for management positions

    Cons

    The job opportunities are good for middle management but the upper management is very cut throat and backstab constantly to keep their jobs. Lots of drama at the store level between employees. Crappy benefits and terribly structured vacation pay out. takes 5 years to get a second week of vacation.

    Advice to Management

    Im not a big believer in micro management and this company is awful about it. It creates an atmosphere of constantly looking over your shoulder and second guessing yourself.

    I have been working at Albertsons Savon Pharmacy part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most staff members are fantastic to work with, hours are great, benefits are comparable.

    Cons

    Some staff are terrible to work with and are hard to get rid of, thus resulting in great technicians leaving due to interoffice pettiness. Merit based raises have been away with, therefore deserving, trained technicians have to leave the company to get better pay.

    Advice to Management

    Quarterly assessments of staff will help weed out those technicians who are not pulling their weight. Also, the new EPS system is a labour killer. Cutting hours will not help with staff keep up with patient/customer demand.
