Pros

Food City Pharmacy offers good support overall for pharmacists and their staffs. The pharmacy hours are excellent especially for family-oriented persons--Monday thru Friday 9:00am to 7:00pm, Saturday 9:00am to 3:00pm and closed on Sundays. Food City is a family & employee owned company and this gives you a more "personal feel" and less of the feeling that you are just another number in a huge corporation. There is an "open door" type atmosphere in the company and at any time you could call and talk with the companies president, if needed. It is very nice to be known by name by senior management.

Cons

Pharmacy communication is challenged and inconsistent. Supervisors are spread too thin therefore pharmacies don't get as much help, guidance and input as needed.

Advice to Management

more upper management help for pharmacy--more delegation needed--must have consistent and regular communication

    Opportunities For Advancement (But With Heavy Competition)

    Cons

    Low Pay
    No Benefits (Only Management Is Full-Time)

    Consider offering larger salaries - especially to management. Every manager in my store (#611) are great at their jobs and deserve to earn more.

    Pros

    many convenient locations throughout the city, they did keep most of Bilos employees
    they have a great rewards card that earns points for groceries and also schools that you register on your card earn cash back

    Cons

    they stopped carrying some items that Bilo always kept in stock
    after working for them for a year, they told employees that there would be no raises, that the company is tapped out...yet they are remodeling stores and adding in departments like food bars

    Advice to Management

    rules should apply to everyone, not just select employees
    when you hang a NO SMOKING sign in a break area, enforce it
