    I worked at Gordons Chemists as a contractor

    Pros

    A great company to work for. They have a great training programme for pre reg pharmacists. I would recommend working for them

    Cons

    I have not got any negative comments to say about this company. I thoroughly enjoyed working for them

    Advice to Management

    The pre registration training was very good. A lot of support and guidance provided. I would recommend the company to other pharmacy students

    I worked at Gordons Chemists full-time

    Pros

    Easy to get on with the job and booking holidays straightforward

    Cons

    Staff discipline is up the left. Staff left to bicker like school girls with no true management. Constant racial or in appropriate remarks and too many staff members taking it upon themselves to delegate jobs to other staff when they do absolutely nothing. Management slow to respond to any enquiry and poor customer service. It is never the case of the customer is always right, so many occasions where staff speak rudely to customers and sneaky back office deals with staff cosied in with manager. Customers embarrassingly changed petty amount over different brands of dispensary stock. e.g. £0.30 for enteric coated even if the customers has spent £50+ while waiting for that script.

    Advice to Management

    Put in cameras, tighten up on staff

    I have been working at Gordons Chemists full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good management, and friendly place to work. Follows good polices and up to date on relevant SOPS. Good rate of pay and company is keen to further your training.

    Cons

    Sometimes slow, and predictable work. A lot of part time staff so no real progress is made unless on a quiet day.
