    Pros

    Its a closed in pharmacy so you do not deal with the direct contact you would in retail.

    Cons

    Pay does not match what they ask of you. They will hire you for one position and ask you to do a million things that you are not responsible for. Management is terrible and do not care about your personal life.

    Advice to Management

    Put yourself in your employee's shoes. Stop acting like you are beyond the lower ranking employee's and help out when needed.

    Pros

    There isn't direct contact with customers that there would be in retail pharmacy. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Management is very unreasonable and is essentially incapable of successfully running a pharmacy. Technicians are hired to work in a specific department and are later forced to work in multiple departments, without being fairly compensated. The medication deliveries NEVER leave the facility on time, leaving hours after it should have most of the time. As a result technicians are constantly receiving calls from angry nurses looking for their patient's meds. Everyone seems to be scrambling around without a direction. If possible avoid this place at all costs, what is expected of you certainly isn't worth the compensation.

    Advice to Management

    If you only offer criticism without commending employees for their hard work it will destroy team morale. Acknowledge strengths and help to develop weaknesses into strengths. Also don't ask from employees what you are not willing to do yourself.
