    I have been working at Pharmaca part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people to work with - professionals who are passionate about health and wellness.

    Cons

    The amount of labor hours allocated to stores is ridiculously low. It's impossible to get tasks done in a timely manner and customer service goes downhill as a result. The amount they pay is definitely not worth the stress of working here. Everyone who works in my store is completely overqualified and I feel Pharmaca takes advantage of this by paying a wage that is not livable. They should consider doing what People's Pharmacy in Austin, TX does and offer practitioners an office and ability to schedule consults in store. It's a win-win for both. There wouldn't be as much turnover if staff could supplement their income with consults. The store would benefit because there would be more recommendations of products that clients/patients could purchase directly in the store after their consult.

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to understand what actually occurs in stores and recognize that in order to provide excellent customer service, more bodies are needed on any given shift. These new labor cuts will undermine what you're trying to achieve and the stores will suffer as a result.
