      Awful place to work in

      Oct 6, 2021 - Pharmacy Dispenser

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Apart from customers and a team, not much good can be said about the company

      Cons

      Unrealistic work targets, hours cut and contracts changed without consultations, severally understaffed (to the point it can cause danger to the patients!), appalling quality of training (which is close to non), low pay, if someone falls ill or resigns they don't get replaced, constantly need to be chasing discrepancies in pay (am currently chasing unpaid 40+ hours of work pay and no-one even responds despite numerous attempts to contact them about the issue), new rules or regulations that are absolutely shocking (paid delivery service, for example, Lloyd's makes people pay for the delivery but limits it to only two deliveries for pharmacy a day, meaning that if three patients need their medication delivered urgently, one of them having to wait until next day and there's nothing staff can do about it), and to top it all off they introduced a completely new system and gave staff no proper training (it consisted of a few short videos on the online learning platform. We were left to figure it out by ourselves, while severely understaffed causing massive backlog. Disgrasefull company

      Not worth working here

      Oct 5, 2021 - Anonymous Employee 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The other staff can be great, and this job can be great if you really value a sense of routine. Quite easy to become a dispenser if you have the time and this is something you want to do.

      Cons

      The company feels exploitative and wasteful- they offer services that cant be done and don’t communicate with individual pharmacies leaving the individual workers in local pharmacies often struggling to stay on top of things. The systems they implemented for organising the prescriptions feels unnecessarily time consuming and not well thought through; and in this job its best to always be as quick as possible with most customers to avoid anger. No real care for employees or patients. The shop I worked in was so poorly planned out, and the till was practically inaccessible for our customers in wheelchairs. It is also a job where the person serving the shop floor is expected to stand all day, which can cause issues.
