    Pros

    Insurance is great, stores are open many hours so this is great for people who need flexible schedules, room for advancement

    Cons

    Low pay for hard work, although that is getting slightly better, corporate has unreasonable expectations for how much work can get done by a few people and stores are often left short staffed, causing customer service to decline

    Advice to Management

    All of the metrics you have will get better if you provide more hours to the stores so they can be staffed well to provide adequate customer service. You lose good people because there isn't support from the corporate level.

    Pros

    Large company, job security. There will always be a need for technicians

    Cons

    Underpaid, mistreated, many days you will feel more like a cog in a wheel churning out scripts vs safeguarding medications

    Advice to Management

    Review metrics, and management training

    Pros

    The acquisition of the Target Pharmacy gave people the ability to get their meds instantly instead of in the mail.

    Cons

    Broken technology. Too much telemarketing calls made from the store. We used to help people be healthy and now it’s about saving the company money

    Advice to Management

    Focus on patient care not metrics and money.
