    I worked at Navarro Discount Pharmacies (More than a year)

    Pros

    Familiar ans warm environment where you get to meet all of the personnel. Bilingual environment. Good flexibility when it comes to work/life balance.

    Cons

    A lot of turnover in upper management that caused a lack of vision inside the organization. This is exacerbated by the lack of leadership among the top positions in the corporate environment (Frequently changes of CEO). Decisions are made without a study plan, making most of the project fail specially in the Operations area (wasted money and resources on unfinished or bad implemented projects). Too many positions in the company filled with personnel that are personal related. Salaried tend to be low and many upper management lacks experience. Not opportunity for grow professionally, and employees are not allow the have their own voice or come up with new ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for the grow of your employees and do not be afraid of welcoming change.

    For the most part they value their employees, some have been working there all their work life.

    I have been working at Navarro Discount Pharmacies part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent customer service/refund policy, very well organized, visualized items, great discounts through the weekly add /manager's specials, refills/new prescriptions always ready quickly.

    Cons

    Not all employees/shift supervisors/managers are 100% bilingual English/Spanish hindering communication at problem solving when facing a confused/disagreeing client.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage monolingual employees to become bilingual through better/worse pay incentives/sanctions and better job applicants selection. Rate/pay employees based on outstanding customer service capabilities.

    I worked at Navarro Discount Pharmacies part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You have a stable job.
    Nice 401k offer if fulltime.
    Colada shots made fresh in pharmacy.
    You get to know your coworkers well and often they are really great people, especially the pharmacy managers and onstaff pharmacist.
    Great store managers (at my location)

    Cons

    The customers are terrible because they have been spoiled for years before policy changes came and often ask for illegal amounts of prescription medicine.
    The equipment (computers, Rx system (EPS), pill counter, fingerprint scanners) are basically nonfunctional, outdated and should have been replaced years ago. Constant blackouts mess up pharmacy system. One time the power went out and we had to serve people non essential medicines (aspirin) and hope our system would recognize it as sold later not to mention accept money or refuse to sell the medicine if it had an insurance/third party error that we couldnt fix without power.
    Was given full time hours without offer of fulltime until the day I decided to quit.
    Some floater pharmacists were nice but we kept some that were rude, didnt follow policy and didnt know how to actually do their jobs or utilize our system.
    I witnessed 2 people in my department quit in the first month that I worked here with stories of almost the full team leaving before I was hired. I then had to help train my companion at the register without being fully trained myself.

    Advice to Management

    Make clear new policies to customers i.e changes in pharmacy rules.
    Please please please make a system to kick people out of the store, there had been several cases of harassment from customers/patients and threats of physical or legal actions for things outside of employee control.
    Replace the outdated hardware and software.
    Train floaters or discipline those who cannot perform their jobs.
    Do more to prevent theft by customers in stores as it was common.

    I worked at Navarro Discount Pharmacies as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Meet friendly and hard working hourly-paid employees

    Cons

    Executive teams is more interested in the bottom line than anything else and always setting unrealistic goals. Employees are disposable and it shows with the lack of decent benefits. Even corporate employees are asked to work on thanksgiving day--talk about greed! Overall, the company is very disorganized to a point that they can't even keep accurate inventory counts--what a shame!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of mediocre, poor performing executives (there's too many of them) and hire true "A" grade talent & show true appreciation for the hard work employees who genuinely want to work professionally.
