    I worked at Bartell Drug full-time

    Pros

    Local products, kind customers, cross training, good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Regular cons of working retail; variable hours, holidays, occasional rude customers, corporate policies.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out set schedules, or a retail worker float pool, to avoid scheduling conflicts and increase worker retention. Confer with store employees before implementing promos and requiring workers to ask for customer information. Sometimes great ideas from the top are not executed well in store due to lack of firsthand view.

    Pros

    Great benefits, 401K, mostly friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Poor maternity and no paternity leave, inexperienced/unproductive management

    Advice to Management

    There are not enough checks and balances within the company in management. There are 2nd assistants who know hardly anything about retail and customer service, but the big wigs don't check on them enough to know the difference. There are many people who have been with the company for decades, but it's because it's so easy to fly under the radar. Promotions are given based on others quitting, not proper qualifications. Also, too much moving around from store to store.

    Great coworkers, systemnto work on is simple

    Cons

    A company that stopped caring for its employees. Don't even think of asking for a raise, but expect more responsibility

    Listen to your employees and take action

    I worked at Bartell Drug full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent insurance is offered. And that is all I could come up with for positive.

    Cons

    I can not stress enough how much I despise this company. They think they have everyone fooled about how great they are. They care nothing about they're employees. Do not appreciate the hard work that is put in. Corporate comes in and have their noses in the air. They do not speak to the employees. If the public only knew how this company operated. Get out while you can.

    Advice to Management

    Fill the gap between corporate and employees. The hourly employees are the people that run your store.

    I worked at Bartell Drug full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Starts off great. Nice co workers. great insurance

    Cons

    Manager gives employees long list of things to do. I worked 12-14 hour days and was still not able to finish ; meanwhile, manager wasn't even there 8 hours. I were shamed and belittled on a daily basis. Manager blamed everyone else and was never took responsibility for anything. If management does not know what is going on, they are are not monitoring their business at all. I am putting my money on they don't care. Either way I blame upper management for allow unprofessional and unethical behavior to occur.

    Advice to Management

    How hard is is to follow up with employees when they leave and find out why. Nobody leaves a job for no reason.

    Depending on the pharmacy location can be very short on time to help people learn new things
