Pros

Tons of opportunity for growth and creativity. Some talented colleagues among the stiffs. And some good laughs on occasion. If you're smart and ambitious, this can be a great company to work for.

Cons

But if you want to grow and be creative, you had better be a driven individual. There's some corporate politics and some rusty process here, but there's also room for talented people to excel.

Advice to Management

Listen to the employees more. Learn to focus on the big picture more and not get stuck on the small stuff. Be sensitive to the stress and discomfort of mass outsourcing.

    Pros

    Small enviroment which is great to start in if this is your first job.
    Flexible with scheduling and changing shifts around.
    Good start pay and was negotiable because of my retail experience.

    Cons

    Although schduleing is flexible you are required to work one holiday out of the year , my store was open 24 hours a day and open everyday of the year.
    Training in other departments wasn't given.
    Hired on as a beauty consultant and ended up being the front cashier so be ready to be placed in different areas without much training.

    Advice to Management

    I had a wonderful experience there and the management was very helpful, when I was leaving they were willing to give me good recommondation letters or be a reference to my future plans so that was such a good thing to hear.


  2. "Stressful and not paid enough for it"

    Pros

    Decent pay and Somewhat flexible hours. Sometimes we get to work with cool pharmacists.

    Cons

    Lazy technicians Lack of information. Corporate does absolutely nothing to solve problems.

    Advice to Management

    Too much to list on here. If I had to write feedback and advice, I will need at least 5 to 10 pages alone.
