    Pros

    Flexible hours, great for students.

    Managers or store directors don't tell the employees what's going on sometimes. They don't share.

    Pros

    Working with patients and co-workers make it bearable.

    Cons

    They are so concerned about saving money that they will cut hours to one of the departments that make the most revenue for the store. The pay is HORRIBLE for working in the medical field. Want us to push vaccines and products to patients then get mad when we cannot meet expectations on top of completing our normal work tasks to help the patients.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to ask your employees how they are doing instead of cutting hours behind the pharmacy manager's back. Perhaps then you will be able to keep competent techs.
