Pros

Supportive culture. Engaged employees have good chances for development and promotion.

Cons

Pharmacy technician support payroll has been restructured within the last 3 years to support pharmacy-pyramid profitability, but with the unintended consequence of decelerating sales growth in low-volume pharmacies (thus prolonging time required to achieve profitability). Pharmacists at low-volume pharmacies work without a technician for a majority of the operating hours.

Advice to Management

By decreasing the number of pharmacy technician hours, we have increased the cost of tasks those technicians once performed, because the pharmacists must now carry out those duties [at their much higher pay rate relative to pharmacy technicians' pay rate]. Also, pharmacists engaged in technician duties are performing suboptimally, because if a technician were present more often, the pharmacists could spend more time building genuine relationships with pharmacy Guests.

    Pros

    Decent benefits package
    Decent pay
    Very friendly atmosphere
    Very helpful coworkers
    HR was always helpful and very understanding
    Helpful orientation and training

    Cons

    We constantly worked short-handed
    I became aware of yet another "superior" seemingly everyday, and these employees were not very friendly
    Lack of proper recognition for hard work

    Advice to Management

    The pyramid of managers within each store is baffling, and while I want to say it also seems unnecessary, I cannot say that for certain.
    More recognition for lower-tier workers would be appreciated
