    I worked at Omnicare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits / discounts

    Cons

    Tension amongst staff, always short staffed (due to cons), no real new employee training literally have to learn on your own, all employees are not treated equal.

    Advice to Management

    Re-train half the staff and start treating all employees equal.

    Work to develop work place culture. Very turnover rate in our region.

    I worked at Omnicare (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of work. Non-stop production across three shifts. Coworkers were pleasant and generally helpful. Hard working employees were given more responsibilities, which is the way it should be.

    Cons

    Big company with 14,000 employees and very little communication. Fill an endless stream of prescriptions and go home. Perhaps that is simply the nature of the business. Top managers had a tendency to un-motivate the staff and create unnecessary stress, but the better employees shrugged it off and proceed to do good work in spite of management.

    I have been working at Omnicare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I get a paycheck that is about it. It is not even a comparable pay to the amount of work that you have to do.

    Cons

    Manager is rude and does not treat everyone fairly. The manager also talks down to you like you do not know anything about life. If you try to contact HR they blow you off about your concerns or blame you for getting treated unfair. They clearly do not care about their employees. The training is a complete joke. The manager does it however she wants but claims "It's the corporate way" when it is really not. Also if you find a mistake. Don't bother to let anyone know because they clearly do not care about the patient's and just blow you off like everyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Try actually caring about your employees. If they come to you with a concern about they way they are being treated, don't try to twist it around on the employee. Try actually looking into the situation. When managers are being rude and talking to you like you are dumb, maybe that person should not be a manager. If they can't handle training someone then maybe someone else needs to take that spot.

    Pros

    Pay was good for basic qualifications.
    Management team is VERY nice.
    There's overtime to be had because it's always busy.

    Cons

    -Severe lack of training. It was like you had to ask about everything instead of it being explained beforehand.
    -every other weekend rotation that was unbalanced as far as equal amount of employees working each weekend.
    -Errors are kept on record instead of explained to you in that moment. Then they are held against you during review.
    -there's not really room for growth which I was told there was.

    Advice to Management

    Work on better training to prevent employee turnover.
