    Former Employee - Practitioner in Portland, OR

    I worked at Pharmaca full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great products, decent discount and fellow coworkers who are passionate about health and wellness. Opportunities to learn from many great vendors.

    Cons

    It is retail, of course, so a practitioner's passion is often squashed as you will be kept busy as a cashier, stock person, bathroom cleaner, etc. and they seem to care more about shelf stocking than providing excellent customer service, despite what they portray. Recommend to a friend? That is so subjective. Entry level or part time , sure

    Advice to Management

    Read other posts above as I completely agree.
